'Off The Chain' Is Described As 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Meets 'Roots'
Django Unchained was, IMO, the most entertaining, most amazing, most American story to hit theatres last year and I cannot wait to see it again in theatres… like… tomorrow. As we know, it’s been getting lots of attention during awards season, and it’s huge cultural impact is undeniable. Recently a friend pointed me in the direction of a new web series titled Off The Chain and as soon as I started watching the first episode on Funny Or Die, I thought Oh! Django! And then I got nervous. Is the slave comedy about to be a… thing? Like… a genre? Am I cool with that? Well, the short answer is Yes, I am cool with that. But the more interesting question is whether or not it works. Peep the video above to check out the first episode of Off The Chain, and click inside for the second episode, which just debuted today!
The TV Guide
Yesterday was a mostly quiet day for me. I stayed indoors pretty much all day long … it’s been cool, rainy and gloomy the past few days and, well, I kinda didn’t feel like going out to experience more gloom so I ended up camping out on the couch for most of the day. I did get out last night to meet up with my friends Gillian and Tim primarily because I haven’t been able to see them in forever. Their beautiful baby girl Gemma is growing up so fast, I decided spending some time with them last night might cheer me up a bit … and I was right. More »
You Have Permission To Read My Post After Watching... Just This Once!
It’s Friday night folks. Some people are hitting up the clubs. Others, like my ridiculously studious bff Michelle are in class (whaaat?!), and some of us will be right here… enjoying the fourth episode of The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, season two. Issa Rae is back at it as our glorious anti-hero and I cannot wait to see what’s popping off with J right now! The last time we saw her was in episode three, and she was being a huge disappointment to her mom, not wrapping her hair (lmao), and kind of failing in the job department. Sigh, we’ve all been there J! And apparently, in this episode J decides to start looking for a new job but as things start to look up, White Jay throws some inevitable curveball. I’m about 60 seconds in and the opening performance is something of legend!!! Cannot wait to hear what you guys think of the new episode! Enjoy! And OMG wait, I just got lost in a vortex and ended up on Issa Rae‘s blog and am now experiencing something called#RatchetpieceTheatre. Juicy J is the subject. Please join me inside after watching the above video. OMG.

From the Computer Screen to the Small Screen
Back in 2008, Joss Whedon produced a 3-act web series called Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog that starred Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day.

The Queen Of Quirk Returns
So we all had a moment a while back when I revealed that I am a ginormous fan of Issa Rae‘s web series The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl… as if I have choice in the matter. I mean, the show is everything hilarious and cultural and political and hilarious. All of the good stuff is here in this, my favorite show that doesn’t come on TV and isn’t Scandal. And now that the second episode of Season Two is up, I thought it’d be fun if we watched together! Awwww :) Anyway, it was the only thing I could think of that might be as fun as that Aaliyah/Gotye mash-up. So turn that song off for a minute, and watch this episode with me!!! Lol, and by ‘watch this episode with me’ I mean you watch it now, and I’ll watch it in a little while and join ya’ll in the comments. If you missed the earlier episodes go back and watch them here! Because as of right now, it’s Team White Jay all day which means things are about to get, well… awkward. Hells yeah! Enjoy :)
