  • 5 stars "As a Nigerian girl, I relate with his show so hard. 10 mins into the first episode I called my sister like: They made a show about our lives!"
  • 5 stars "So deliciously awkward, hilarious, smart and real. I think everyone will identify with some of these moments in a very real way. A great depiction of odd life moments never quite conveyed onscreen before."
  • 5 stars "I saw main character from Aliens, she was awesome. But this show you need a certain sense of humor."
