Transcribing these details fails to capture Ruffin's delivery or the singular chemistry that makes her a delightful guide through the trauma of everyday racism, two terms that would typically be at odds with each other.

If Amber Ruffin has a superpower, it's turning insightful observations about race and society into unexpectedly fun and funny comedy bits.

The show's more than good enough, as is, for a bigger audience, but then the network would probably change what it is in hopes of connecting to that audience. It's a dilemma.

Amber Ruffin is goofy when she needs to be, serious when she has to be, and can go from one to the other pretty smoothly. It's a skill that not many have.

I found Amber Ruffin's debut episode to be a true breath of fresh air. While the mechanics may not be breaking the mold, Ruffin herself is. I am truly in awe of how comfortable and hilarious she is in her debut.
