        I laughed so hard, watching this series. These videos are hilarious.
      • May 19, 2022
        Most of the time I don't get the humor. Beautiful cast, though.
      • Apr 08, 2022
        Hilarious, not just the show, alaso the fact every negative review of the show is from a dude. go check it out, very funny!
      • Apr 08, 2022
        There's a suspicious trend of shows having unbelievably high reviews from critics and very low reviews from the audience. It seems like the result of pushing an agenda with bought-and-paid-for reviews. This show is so unironically racist, in a way that is acceptable today, i.e it is racist against white people, the one group it's okay to hate for their skin color. The last four people on earth are drug obsessed black women who are so happy to be free of the problem of having "mediocre white men" promoted instead of them. Apparently black representation means erasing and demeaning white people for their skin color, not any legitimate means of creating a world of actual equality. And this is what critics are too afraid to give anything less than a clean 100%: racism.

        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

        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.

        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.
