Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say: Not yet rated

This series dreams up scenarios that are hilariously insightful into the reality of a Black person's experience in a mostly White country. Dreaming Whilst Black has fast pacing and witty, funny writing. Salmon plays the "straight man" role in this unfortunately realistic but still over-the-top world very well. The strong language, adult humor, and sexual innuendos make this suitable for older teens.
