This is the first episode, as I mentioned it's pretty low budget, but it gets better! Although we're not the same in looks, when I first watched this show it felt like the first time I was even close to physically and mentally relating to the person on my screen.
Also, had anyone previously heard of the series??? I've introduced a lot of my friends to it and I'm trying to gauge how widespread Issa Rae or the shows popularity are in reality.
