Trivia

Although 1st season structurally develops the same story of the original movie, in the series adaptation there are some considerable changes on the dramatic arc of characters Coco Conners, Troy Fairbanks and Dean Fairbanks (Troy's father). In the series Coco is well aware about the social issues in the campus and accepts her race and color, often choosing sides that better fits her personal interests, but in the movie she not only self neglect her race and color, acting as a "white chick" like her pals use to say, but also avoids relationships with others of the same color. In the movie Troy always make decisions that benefits the interest of white students because his father believes that this is the easiest way for a black man succeds in the white politics world. Although Troy's father is demanding and his influence over Troy is suffocating in both movie and TV series, in the series Mr. Fairbanks raises a totally opposite speach, now demanding his son to pursue a political career because black people needs representatives.

Surprisingly funny and makes fun of everyone
28 April 2017 | by UltraviolenxeSee all my reviews

Going into this I thought it was just gonna be some cringy show about how annoying white people are, with no depth or comedy. To my surprise it's actually the opposite. The show makes fun of white people and black people. Makes fun of white liberals, white conservative, black liberals, black conservatives, literally EVERYONE. It pokes fun at itself and doesn't take itself too serious and it's actually fun to watch.

The people "boycotting" this or trolling the ratings to this are either trolls, crybabies who think that this is somehow racist to white people, or just people that haven't watched it. Anyone who's offended over this is ridiculous. It's a show that makes fun of race and how stupid both white AND black people can be. Stop whining and watch it for yourself instead of hopping on a hate bandwagon from whiny white men who can't stand to see themselves being made fun of. Everyone gets made fun of, white people are no exception. Lighten the hell up and stop taking everything so seriously. Laugh at yourselves, life's too short not to.
