Here’s the second episode of Afro City, a new webseries centered on “four Afro-centric girls” in Los Angeles. The episode was just released this month, but it’s called “Obama Mama” and is about the election in 2008. It’s amazing how dated the episode seems … so much optimism back then.
The writing needs improvement, especially the voice-overs, which don’t add much wit or humor — they’re just descriptions of the characters and situations. Hopefully future episodes can build on the likeable actresses and basic premise. The series is co-created by Rhonda Ray and Lobace.
