Take A Look At The New Web Series “Skinnie Bitches”

Take A Look At The New Web Series "Skinnie Bitches"

Speaking of web series here comes another new one Skinnies Bitches. Now wait, hold up. I didn’t call them that. That’s the name of the series. Honest. So if you have a problem don’t yell at me. These are just the facts ma’am.

The series is written and directed by Rebakah Frimpomg who co-stars with Tatina Wynn and promises to take the viewer “on a culinary journey through the minds of two friends living in New York.  They eat, talk, and laugh as well as sometimes travel and interview top chefs.”

They promise new episodes every two weeks which you can watch on the series’ website HERE and to watch the first episode take a look below:

I want to like this show, if only because it might give me the take of skinny black women— an intersection of classes that you seldom see in food criticism— on food and eating. As is, it seems more of a vanity project than something that provides any useful information or entertainment: I learned *nothing* (except for that shito means pepper in Ga), and the anecdotes weren't funny. I felt like there was no substance provided to back up their assertion that they knew food. Eating pad thai and talking about Whole Foods doesn't cut it. The preview of the next episode didn't get my hopes up either, but if I run into the show somewhere else, I'll definitely check in and see if it improved.

What was the tea the Ghanan mentioned?

Even though the feedback is mixed on our web series, we still have more episodes coming. Thank you to those who like the series and to those who don't please keep checking in with us because we are just getting started.

Is this really a web series? It looks to me like they decided to upload a video for the fun of it. I disliked ATCQ & Nas music in the background. I have to agree with Chica on this one there is no direction and no target audience.

Hmmmm……

I'm willing to give the ladies another a chance but hopefully the next shows in the series will flow better. And be more interesting. This one was kinda blah.

This was pretty boring. Though the production quality was nice, it was definitely missing a point to the show. As someone else stated, it's not clear who the audience is. And the background music was too loud, but that was okay because the dialogue just seemed to be two rambling "skinny bitches." The title doesn't bother me because I use it as well (http://sweetilocks.blogspot.com). It's not about bragging about being skinny, it's characterizing their experience, and mocking those who hate and bash them (us) for being skinny, rather than recognize the healthy aspects and attitudes we may have. Not to say all skinny people are healthy, but clearly these two present themselves to be. I think the show would better serve it's audience by creating an agenda for each episode, like, perhaps a cooking demonstration, or how to navigate Whole Foods. It would've been interesting if there was audio during the scenes in the grocery store. So it was boring, but it can be improved with some guided direction and more well-thought out production. Nice camera work though!

WACK!

Oh God that was awful! Sorry ladies, but you must have a script or a producer feeding you questions. It seemed too off the cuff that required some improv classes, and also staying in one spot for a long period of time is boring. You are in the greatest city in the nation, full of exciting backdrops, and you shoot behind the West Side Highway? Was it a permit issue? It's not easy to get permission to film a pilot in Whole Foods (I've gone through the process), but maybe if you had recreated the "argument" scene in the store as a flashback, it would've added something to the story. Also, let us know why you're an authority on cooking (if that is the angle); are you a home cook and just have a passion, or is one of you classically trained? Let us know off the bat why we should trust your "expertise" and what you're saying.

Hmmmm. This came off as a digital platform for elitist, egotistical, skinny women.

It just REALLY needs to be edited down to about 1:30 to 2:00 (maybe not even 2:00) which would make the piece better able to catch one's attention. The title is also unnecessary and WILL turn off "like-styled" people would would have supported your work.

ON THE UPSIDE: the girl with the hat on is totally hot in my opinion.
ON THE DOWNSIDE: this bored me to tears really, and I love talking about food! But what's the point of this show, really? And, as a "skinny bitch" myself, I find the title insulting to skinny and big(er) girls alike. Why do you need a title like that just to talk about healthy food choices? Generally, I agree with Blutopaz. Snoozer.

Skinny, Rambling and Boring Bitches. Black folks eating pad thai to a hip hop soundtrack and shop Whole Foods, ooh that's so dope.
