I think it too was a great move for him, it just sucks that I'm hearing from just about everyone that Issa Rae is the brainchild of this. She didn't create this. She's just giving Jetter a platform.

I enjoyed the first episode. Very well done. Tahir is a talented filmmaker. Looking forward do seeing more.


Makes perfect sense! Smart move.
