what black people are you representing?

Love Nightvale. Listen to all of their podcasts. When word of an afro-futuristic scifi podcast gets around, there’s reason to be excited. These aren’t stories that include us. The first episode is a disappointment right off the bat. Really wasn’t expecting the worst blaccent with weirdly old, and incorrectly used, slang. Is this how you create a black character? Is this what we are to you? I recommend not pursuing inclusivity if the writers at your table are a bunch of white guys. Expand your range of employees, maybe then you can accurately portray a culture. With that aside, this is a story line that is all over the place, with no hopes of clarity. Enjoy, I guess?

Talented cast, highly entertaining!

This needs to be adapted to the stage! The performances and writing are impressive, and the characters are amazing, from the main ones to the tangential ones. The songs and musical performances are simultaneously hilarious and beautiful. Some of the violence is a little too much, particularly in a later episode. Spoiler alert...

Child deaths are triggering! It undermines the humor too much. That’s my only complaint. Love this show otherwise!

Mostly Solid Show, Slightly Confused

Adventures in New America is an interesting concept and well-produced, but I feel like it doesn’t have one central direction to what it’s doing. I’m interested to see the team grow, develop, and refine the show as it continues!
