Full story below…

The series is powered by Issa Rae, Quinta Bronson, Ashley Nicole Black and Gabrielle Dennis and features performances from some of the world’s most recognisable and revered black actresses. See Angela Bassett, Laverne Cox, Aja Naomi King and Loretta Devine.

    I thought it was funny! It can come across as very dry humor which everyone isn’t fond of. Hopefully it sticks around!

        Y’all are crazy what are you talking about on every post someone is using your name…you really do need meds who cares use a different username..then you keep being the owners of this site into it like they care about you looney tunes

      • Jasmine August 14, 2019

        TROLLmine you’re such a try hard. Nobody cares.

      • Jasmine August 14, 2019

        I see you are behind that ‘Clocked In’ troll account. Admit it you care! That is why u have so many troll accounts dedicated to me your Queen B Jasmine👸 .

      • Jasmine🙋🏿‍♀️David🙋🏿‍♂️Sam🙋🏽‍♂️& Rashad 🙋🏾‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 14, 2019

        TROLLmine I’m sorry that everyone is reading you left and right.. but I can’t help it that you’re not popular and have no reads.

      • Jasmine August 14, 2019

        I am the Queen B Jasmine 👸 . “Reads” are meaningless unless I validate them. The FACT you want to be me and u created numerous troll accounts dedicated to me proves I am the one in popular demand NOT u. U don’t see me creating troll accounts or impersonating u do you? No because u are a loser. Bow 🙇🏾 down. I am the reigning Queen B Jasmine 👸 since 2009 and I wear the crown 👑.

      • Jasmine🙋🏿‍♀️David🙋🏿‍♂️Sam🙋🏽‍♂️& Rashad 🙋🏾‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 14, 2019

        Sorry TROLLmine you have been phased out. You’re 38 years old now. Time to move on and go hang in environments more for your age group☺️

      • Jasmine August 14, 2019

        If I’m 38 you are 58 dude. Everybody knows I am 29 and I have accomplished more in my life than you ever will professionally and personally! Why are u so obsessed with me troll? Always remember, you cannot troll a troll. You have been trying unsuccessfully for over 2 years to troll me. Time for U to move on.

      • Jasmine🙋🏿‍♀️David🙋🏿‍♂️Sam🙋🏽‍♂️& Rashad 🙋🏾‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 14, 2019

        Nobody knows that you’re 29 because nobody knows you… just like nobody knows ur a model because you’re not a model… just like nobody knows you’re a female because you’re a hèrmáphrodite. Just like nobody knows you’re a writer for TGJ because #ApplicationDeniedBitch(n****)

      • Shayla Queen August 14, 2019

        Honey, JasMAN is MY insult for YOU. Thieving h03! Too unintelligent to even come up his own insults yet stamps his feet like a baby over someone having the same name as him 🙄

      • Jasmine August 14, 2019

        I am going to pray that you suffer badly and live the rest of your pathetic life more miserable than you already are. God says do not mess with my anointed. Demon you are speaking to a blessed and highly favored woman of God. God made me a leader and a Queen👸 . You need to stop stalking my comments from your numerous troll accounts and get it through your disformed thick ass skull 💀 that I ain’t going nowhere! I am here and will never be shook. U can troll, BEG 🙇🏾, plead, cry 😭 , and whine about it but the FACT remains Queen Jasmine ain’t going nowhere. This idiotic dialogue between us daily means nothing to me and u should have gotten the message by now I am here to stay! Now leave me alone demon!

      • Jasmine🙋🏿‍♀️David🙋🏿‍♂️Sam🙋🏽‍♂️& Rashad 🙋🏾‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 14, 2019

        TROLLmine you’re definitely a leader. Reminiscent of Patrick Swayze as the leader of her all fem crew in “To Wong Fu”.. you’re very reminiscent of that type of leader, girl (boy).

      • Jasmine August 14, 2019

        I see God is already working his power. He has given me total mind control over you. I got you obsessing over me daily and I see you will suffer a harsh tragedy within the next week. The power of God. AMEN.

      • Jasmine🙋🏿‍♀️David🙋🏿‍♂️Sam🙋🏽‍♂️& Rashad 🙋🏾‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 14, 2019

        @Lucki @ClockedIn @PrincessJasmine(Daughter) lets all make a packed to ignore TROLLmine. It will never stop seething because it is jealous of us and that isn’t our fault. We cannot help we are single sèxed just as TROLLmine can’t help that it’s “you know what”… anywho if anyone’s looking for internships in journalism we will be hiring in September, we are open to all writing styles, just not TROLLmines ghetto, Ebonics filled grammatical tragedies.

      • Jasmine August 14, 2019

    THE SERIES IS GOD AWFUL!

    I wanted to celebrate & honor the showcase as it features the likeness & bold talent of our sistas.

    however, the writing is lazy, offensive & p*** poor.

    the performances are very try hard & Kevin Hart-like ridiculous.

    ITS A NO!

    Issa Rae needs to be very careful about what she attaches her name to.

  3. Clarkson August 14, 2019

    Black women are not funny *tiffany haddish* , infact women in general are not funny.
    Leave this kind of comedy to the men.

    Issa rea isnt funny she got lucky with insecure thanks to the talented Male supporting cast.

    • Oh plz August 14, 2019

      Another post, another hate-filled tirade from TGJ’s resident bigot, Clarkson. B****, aren’t you tired of being a hater?? Damn…

      • SMH August 14, 2019

        Lol he/she is just trolling for comment responses.

    • Oh plz August 14, 2019

      @SMH you’re right. I know this clown is trolling

      • Clarkson August 14, 2019

        Girl let it go. I schooled u in a previous post, I put u in ur place and ur still pressed about it.
        I said what I said. My opinions are mine. I don’t care if u dont agree with me, but I will still comment and say how I feel. Periodt

  4. Keith August 14, 2019

    The second episode was better than the first and I’m hoping that this season continues that trajectory. I will be watching…

  5. SMH August 14, 2019

    If even Angela Bassett couldn’t save it, its trash.

  6. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. August 14, 2019

    If the 3 minute sketch that I watched was what the show is all about then I can, too, agree with the overall sentiments of the naysayers.
    #S^cked

  7. Shayla Queen August 14, 2019

    Absolutely terrible. I love you Angela but just no.

  8. Some1got2sayIt August 14, 2019
