Sharp African-American comedy
on 21 May 2008
I came across this series via the internet via the huey Freeman Christmas episode and thought it was rather funny, I then went to find all the other episodes on youtube (sorry, they ain't there anymore) and fell in love with this series.
To be honest, the great thing about this 1st series is the fact that each episode looks at an interesting aspect which Aaron McGruder percieves is part of African-American life. Whether it be "the nigga moment", the moment at which Black people get into a simplistic argument and it escalades into something worse, or the itis, a look at the diet of African American food which is extrememly fatty.
It can be enjoyed on many levels, theres animated fighting and moments of true sadness. its well written and the music is brilliant as well. A series which I would advise anyone to appreciate.
