Got me thinking and thinking and thinking...
7 August 2017 | by rbmoraesSee all my reviews

I live overseas and haven't watched full episodes yet cause they haven't been released for viewers outside the USA (which is a big shame, bet shows such as TWD and GOT haven't taken that long). However, all the bits and scenes available for viewers in my country have got me thinking to the level of inspiration. As a teacher, I got to think of all kinds of discussions this show brings to the stage -- not only racial-, but also social- and gender-wise.

This show is funny and floods our thoughts with lots of questions. It somehow managed to embody the role of comedy in a very Shakespearian style. I'm no critique or expert of any kind, but I'd humbly say that the main character, Koko, somewhat reminds me of the jester in Shakespeare's plays, when only "the clown" dared to say certain things. The jester used his wits to outdo people of higher social standing and, in a similar way, Koko uses her wits to discuss mainly racism in a very white dominant culture, but also acknowledging gender and ethnic discrimination plus a few other masked issues in modern society.

In sum, people should watch it because it's funny, entertaining and because it helps building criticism and social awareness - it may also give you a break from shows about murders, rapes, assaults and the like.
