Black women in the current era might be looked upon as strong and confident beings, but Issa and Molly are just the opposite of the two traits. The two closest friends deal with their daily life problems, the insecurities and the uncomfortable events they experience. Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore presented a different dimension of the friendship of two black women in a unique and different way with music by both renowned and indie artists. The show also points out a variety of social and racial issues that are related to the life of the modern Black society.

The show is based on Mike Judge’s experiences that he got as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 80s. The comedy series follows the story of the misadventures and experiences of an introverted programmer named Richard and his band of brainy friends as they try to make their mark and become rich in the high-tech industry. They all live together in one of the Bay Area startup incubators run by a techy millionaire Erlich. Elrich provides them with accommodation for free in exchange for a stake in the projects that they work on. Meanwhile, Richard develops a powerful search engine algorithm during his day job hours. This gets him involved in a bidding war with his boss who offers him an eight-figure buyout — and hefty venture capital.


There are many other shows that you can watch out for and enjoy. I would recommend that apart from the above you can look for shows like Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Westworld, True Detective and many other shows by HBO.
