  • Jul 20, 2021
    One of the funniest and smartest shows I've ever seen.
  • May 09, 2021
    Out of all the comedy sketch shows this is by far the worst. It doesn't come close to s.n.l. or in living color or key and peele have no idea why it has such high ratings slow boring and alot of it doesn't even make sense
  • Apr 07, 2021
    Simply hilarious with some great actors! Enjoyed watching this so much! Comments on stereotypes of many communities and are incredibly didactic too.
  • Aug 01, 2020
    Was surprised to see the mixed audience score. Really enjoyed this show, and it was good to see so many great guest stars as well. For those who get it it's definitely worth while.
  • Dec 07, 2019
    Incredibly creative take on sketch-comedy featuring one of the most marginalize minority groups in full shine. A knockout cast completes the hilarious material from the all female writer's room and a breakout piece for creator and star Robin Thede who is superb.

    Absolutely brilliant!!!
  • Nov 24, 2019
    This show is really cool and super relatable to black women. These ladies are also extremely funny. I love them!
  • Nov 22, 2019
    I so wanted to love this show, but it was painfully unfunny. It's hard to understand how it came out so remarkably badly.
  • Nov 22, 2019
    Oh, man—this didn't have a single funny moment in it, I'm afraid. How is it possible to put so much money into a show and have it be so painfully bad?
  • Nov 20, 2019
    Hilarious, relevant, and fun with an all-star black women cast who bring a new perspective to HBO. You have to be on the pulse of culture to appreciate the comedic genius of this show.
