A Black Lady Sketch Show

Recommended Posts

I know I'm past the Auntie age because I had to look up what a bodycon dress is.  And the Millie Rock.  😭

Gabrielle is this season's MVP.  The gang retreat was better than the first and she owned the Auntie sketch, along with Laci as the fairy godmother.  I kept rewinding that one.  But the vampire/demon stuff at the end just felt like a poor way to shoehorn the rest of the cast into it.

The apocalypse side plot still doesn't make sense, but even worse, it's just not funny.  It wasn't that logical last season, but at least the cast was just hanging out and having fun, rather than trying to decipher it.  They need to take it in a new direction or just drop it.

I missed last week, has Laci been the lead in any of the sketches?  She seems really talented but she's always on the periphery and I feel like they spend more time with Skye.  Is it because Laci is doing the iCarly reboot?

Laci was the lead in the twerking sketch with Miguel.

I agree about Gabrielle being the MVP. Not only is her acting on point, but she's nearly age 40 and out here doing handstands, roundoffs, and splits. I'm jealous.

S02.E05: If I'm paying these Chili's prices, you cannot taste my steak!

A freshman navigates her first cafeteria lunch; a motivational speaker rouses a crowd; a woman tries a promising new hair salon.

How is that motivational speaker not a cult leader? She's certainly in league with the Devil lol. The nail place dialogue was too fast for me to catch much other than the nail lady was trying to upsell services. That poor freshman trying to navigate lunch tables; the commentary was hilarious. Just why do Black women (reportedly) continue to go to the same salon when the service is not good, especially with late appointments? I'm sure there was a lot of nuance I wasn't catching with that sketch, though the perfect salon place made a lot pretty obvious that was missing at a regular place

The ongoing The Event sketch eludes me as to its purpose

That I Wish A N---- Would sketch was inspired. Clever twist on the genie in a bottle.

A wine-based currency. It could happen if that's the only thing available in sufficient quantities to trade with.

Yeah, you don't want to be out here tumbleweeding in these streets with unruly hair. I flinched when she put that hot curling iron on her forehead. Funny how the mind can instantly retrieve memories of the smell of singed hair and skin.

I think I liked the finale better than the previous episode; I guess I just found it funnier overall. The post-analysis of a date like it was a post-game news conference was pretty inspired. The fight over identical outfits worn by overweight women, the genie sketch, and the debate sketch were pretty good

I continue to cringe at the liberal use of the N word

DTF Sports.

Are you tender-headed, Terrell?

That New Addition.

They didn't sing the Stevie version so now the birthday girl has to keep her kids!

Acting all worldly and whatnot.

My body just jumped up and started dancing as soon as Before I Let Go began playing. The song has some kind of voodoo.

Yeah, I think that might've been the best sketch of the season. Just non-stop brilliance.

This was my favorite episode all season. I haven't been really feeling this season; the sketches have been hit or miss. I actually forgot to watch it last night. I just watched the finale, and all the sketches were really good this time.

Doesn't it? That sketch was hilarious because it was so true.

I don't like it either, and sometimes it doesn't even seem to fit the setting of the sketch. It felt very out of place in the Split the Check sketch, even though I understand it was a callback to an earlier sketch.

Closed-captioning said "Tinder-headed" which is a great play on words.

This was definitely my favorite episode of the season, all the sketches hit perfectly for me.

The only thing is another cliff-hanger about whatever apocalypse they're going through. Quinta leaving probably left them scrambling from last season, but if it turns about to be a dream inside another dream or something, it's time to drop it.

"Poison" took me right back to ninth grade (showing my age)!

This season received 5 Primetime Emmy nominations https://deadline.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/2021-Emmy-Nominations-List.pdf

I’m happy for the Emmy nominations. I didn’t love this season as much as I did season 1, but it had some great moments. Gabrielle was strong in every scene she was in. Laci and Skye grew on me, and I really liked them by the end of the season.  I missed Quinta for sure, but the writing also wasn’t as consistently as funny and smart.

Yes the jumpsuit sketch was hilarious. And I love Amber Riley, so seeing her was a treat. 

I still enjoyed the season overall and loved seeing black women do comedy well. 

BTW, did anyone catch Gabrielle Dennis on an HGTV renovation show called Inside-Out? I loved the renovations in her LA house. And she was funny. A little chatty—i.e., she wouldn’t stop talking—but it was a good episode, and it was nice to see her beautiful vintage home.
