The Fab Five: Kil's Top 5 Black Webseries

A minute ago (as a matter of fact a long minute ago) Mad TV had a skit called "Ain't No Blacks On the TV Screen" which basically broke down that there ain't no blacks on the TV screen. But at the time we still had "Girlfriends", "All of Us" "One On One", "Between Brothers", etc. But now, 10+ years after that skit was done, we're faced with the harsh reality that...there ain't no blacks on the TV screen! Yeah, we're sprinkled around here and there but outside "The Game" and "Let's Stay Together" and a RACK of reality TV shows that are setting black folk back 200 years, we're no where to be found. So, what do you do if you actually wanna see more then two blacks on the same show? Head over to You Tube and check out these 5 DOPE webseries that'll hold you down until Hollywood decides to give us that 40 acres and a mule. So, in a nutshell...get used to webseries if you wanna see black folk acting.

"Riding Dirty with Officer Turner"
If you rock with Gabrielle Union, were fans of "Reno 911" and need a GOOD laugh after a long day, then you'll LOVE "Riding Dirty" where Gabby plays a police office who rides for dolo (she'll explain to ya'll what back up is for) and deals with crime in her own way. The thing I love most about "Riding Dirty..." is I had NO idea Gabby could be THIS funny! Check out more episodes of "Riding Dirty with Officer Turner" here...



"Walk This Way"
I've been a fan of Michael William's work since his days as Omar on "The Wire" but just like with Gabby, there's no way I could call this dude doing a comedy series. This go round he plays the pastor of a mega church (yup, "Omar don't scare" is a pastor) who has some off brand ways of giving his congregation "Godly" advice. Check out more episodes of "Walk This Way" here...




"Almost Home"
Ever wonder what happend to Zarai from Robert Townsend's show "The Parenthood?" Well, check out  "Almost Home" which deals with her and her brother moving from Chicago to L.A. after their mother's death to follow their dreams. Check out more episodes of "Almost Home" here...




"Almost 30"
In a nutshell, "Almost 30" deals with a group of friends dealing with the fact that they're almost turning 30 and their lives aren't exactly where they though they would be. Check out more episodes of "Almost 30" here...




"The Couple"
You may remember a minute ago, we had the kickstarted account for "The Couple" under our #Support tab here on Marriage Exposed when they were trying to get funding to do a full feature film. The good news is they successfully got the funding to do the movie but until that drops check out Season 1 of the webseries. And if you rocked with "A Good Day to Be Black and Sexy" then you'll LOVE "The Couple." Why? Cause the creators behind "A Good Day..." are at the helm of "The Couple." This is EASILY my fave web series out the bunch. Check out Season 1 of "The Couple" here...



And if ya'll missed the whole Mad TV "Ain't No Blacks On The TV Screen" skit from back in the day, check it out...
