I’m glad it exists. As a viewer, not trying to overanalyze it, they slide in some truth between the laughs. It does come across as an afterschool special when they try to educate sometimes, but I’m glad the message has an audience and a platform—I gotta remember I know most of these things because I live some of those things. The agency life is a little too comically racist for my liking, and I also hate when Wanda Sykes is on the show because she’s not funny. But I never feel like we’re caricatures, and that’s important. About as much honesty as I can expect from a primetime comedy. I also enjoyed Kenya’s #BlackAF show on Netflix more than I thought I would.

In my experience, the show is more diverse than real life. And obviously way more cringey than real life.

Given how hot the market is right now, do I need to wait for my promotion to look at other firms?
