    I'm not gonna lie, the first few episodes I had to hold on with my fingers crossed and I'm so happy I didn't give up. This is a show that works up to better and better as you go along. Issa Rae has earned my respect big time. I absolutely love this show and cannot wait til season 5.

    I can NOT get enough! It’s so real, relatable, and funny. The characters are very well developed and I love the personal touch each brings, its amazing.Get some popcorn and give it a try, you won’t be able to stop watching.I want to hang out with ‘Issa’! Let me know if you need a roommate girl! We could totally split that $750 rent in I-wood. Stay up Issa!

    Issa Rae's comical prowess receives an insightful treatment in a show that manages to deal with real people in relatable situations and the result is funny and tender.
  • Apr 05, 2018
    her youtube show is wayyyy funnier
  • Mar 02, 2018
    Maybe I'm just too old, but I don't like this show at all. I tried really hard because of all the hype, but after three episodes I was out. She lives a life I have no ability to understand.
  • Feb 07, 2018
    one of the shortest TV series to come out in a while but rising star Issa Rae utilizes her comedic timing and charisma to great effect lots of laughs and simple drama covering the life of an average black woman in America while rustling through the many stereotypes, misconceptions, and oxymorons Issa plays a woman with a great boyfriend, a best friend, a great job and a strong passion for rapping a lot of it pours from the stuff going on in her personal life; some of it affects her in unique ways, other times it tears it down significantly in this part of California Issa is a woman trying to stabilize love, work, and her happiness all the other players are very likeable and each carry their own brand of personal issues that this woman doesn't know about the finale is sad to say the least but even a journey like hers doesn't end immediately a raunchy, laugh-filled and insightful first season
