Whoa. Tough room.


Issa Rae… Wow… Smdh.

With all of the avenues for potentially interesting, original, and alternative content that the current media landscape provides, THIS is what people are producing?


Come on y'all, who's running this show, Tracy, Damon, Issa or Benoni, who has the power to say STOP! I mean, I CAN NOT believe everyone of the above thought this distasteful and poorly written product was worthy for public distribution, even as a web series.

Really, what's going on here, who wrote this, who thought this was funny, entertaining or amusing, and who is being paid? I don't know, but again, someone in that group had to know this was not a production they should have their names behind.




Poorly written. Poorly directed. Poor production values. It seems as though it was slapped together in someone's off time. I was hoping for a step up from ABG. I like Issa. I have even seen her on her talk show. She is EXETREMELY personable on that show. This is just disappointing.


Boring, unnecessarily drawn-out, and ultimately unentertaining.


I thought it was funny. Especially the idea of "that" kind of performance
in church.
