Now that the election is over, I’m looking forward to getting back to my “normal” life–you know the one in which my viewing habits no longer consist of 24/7 political cycles.
Because I love a good story, and even more, a good story that includes black folks, I’ve been watching my fair share of web series which seems to be one of the few places we can see interesting narratives of ourselves. Between Issa Rae’s Awkward Black Girl and Dennis Dortch’s very popular romcom, The Couple, to the British imports Spin and Brothers With No Game, black content creators are having a great year.
While some have complained that there are too many series on the web (But no one complains about too many TV shows. Odd), I get a kick out of watching well-made, well acted shows that include people who look like me.
Black & Single
Last week, a friend of mine hipped me to a show titled “Black & Single,” which is one I probably should have seen, but somehow missed.
The show chronicles the dating mishaps of a professional pair—one guy, one gal—and is absolutely HILARIOUS. I’m not sure how this show slipped through my radar, but I’m glad I found it.
