Two years ago, Wyatt Cenac embarked on two seasons of his own pointedly, socially conscious series Problem Areas at HBO. Cenac made the show decidedly different from many other socio-political, topical comedy shows from focusing on actually going out into the street, talking to several different people on both sides of many crucial issues involving race, class, immigration, labor, power structures, etc., and actually trying to figure a solution of some sort from all those conversations.
If you’re looking for a voice to amplify and hear and see messages that you should be seeing and hearing, go ahead and give Problem Areas a binge watch. HBO was nice enough to put all two episodes on YouTube, free of their pay wall, for you to stream.
So, go get into Problem Areas here.
