TLDR

It’s all the benefits of trash reality TV, minus the self-loathing.

What it's about

Zoleka (Sivenathi Mabuya) suspects infidelity from her boyfriend Kagiso (Bohang Moeko), which ruins his surprise proposal. But Zoleka won't just lose him like that.

The take

This show is chock-full of out of pocket lines and all kinds of surprising scenarios. The awkwardness literally never lets up, as it approaches romance with such over the top aggression and discomfort, which makes it difficult for you to just relax your core during the sweet moments. Despite the title, the ensemble comedy is the dominant flavor that brings uneasy confrontations, passive aggressiveness, and dramatic reveals from the couple’s loud and colorful support system. It’s really a well-written show, with family drama to the highest extent, and all the puzzle pieces fitting together nicely to create a lively show with staying power.

What stands out

“I wish you two the best of the worst.” Cold.
