“Awkward Black Girl”: Webseries You Should Be Watching

Everyone has awkward moments, whether they are with your parents, strangers or coworkers.  Most of us are glad that these moments are not captured on tape but Issa Rae’s Awkward Black Girl series essentially does that. The talented writer, director and star of the series, Issa Rae,  has taken our most awkward moments and made them into this wonderful little series that can only be described as a mix of Parks and Recreation meets Curb Your Enthusiasm with some sprinkles of Daria (if Daria was a grown black woman who worked in an office setting).

I was introduced to the series by a great friend of mine (thanks Schuyler) and have been hooked ever since. Watching the series is like someone followed you around with a camera and filmed different parts of your life. i was surprised when while watching I kept yelling to myself, “OMG that happened to me.” If you can’t relate to all the scenarios that occur, the show is funny.  It has great writing and a good cast and the score is always great.  New episodes premiere every first Thursday of the month (Episode 9 premiered today). Check out Episode One below and for all the other episodes check out their website http://awkwardblackgirl.com/
