Watch “The Misadventures of AWKWARD Black Girl” Episode 8 (Web Series)

Continuing on with Issa Rae’s immensely popular Awkward Black Girl web series; She just dropped episode 8, which I embedded below, which was directed by Dennis Dortch (A Good Day To Be Black & Sexy):

Found this series through Tumblr & haven’t been able to stop watching since.

I think the new cast is great & especially the extra quiet guy & how everyone always hears & understands him except Jay. Lol

I really just want the two of them to get together without hurting White Jay :(

Betty Chambers

I love the guy who’s barely audible (with the nice long hair). He cracks me up.


I love this show so much!!! The last episode was definitely one of the funniest IMHO. This one had funny moments but as others have said took a softer approach to Jay and Fred’s scenes. I agree the “Sister Act 2” reference was hilarious. I also loved the line “If he thinks he can get with me the arranging his room like an r&b video, he totally gets me!” Overly religious co-worker not so funny but hopefully she’ll get better in up coming episodes. But as usual an episode that just makes me wish they were longer.

Darla & Mark

Thanks for taking me there, love the show.


ahhhhh love this series! I agree with Bashe. I’m glad it wasn’t over the top, but I definitely loved the Sister Act 2 references lol! Too funny!

Black Butterfly

LOVED IT! The guitar solo from “The Best Man” was a great nod to the movie.


Agree with Bashe re this is being a good transition episode.

I nearly DIED during the Sister Act 2 reference…

yeah, not too keen on the Jesus-freak worker. I think the actress should have stayed quiet and just give the funny looks like she did before. Her expressions were on point.

Still a great episode.


Liked the chemistry between her and the old cast members but didn’t like the new cast members at all. Loved the romance stuff. Glad the episodes are still coming!



Nice transition episode—I really like the way she didn’t feel as if she had to “top” last episode’s madcap hilarity, particularly as the series gets more and more popular with viewers; she went “soft,” and still had a terrific episode. I really think she’s got a future well beyond this web-series, even though I hope ABG continues for a long time….
