 This smart portrait of the life and friend­ships of twen­tysome­thing black women in LA is based on the hit in­ter­net se­ries The Mis­ad­ven­tures of Awk­ward Black Girl by US co­me­dian Issa Rae. Her writ­ing is crisp and in­sight­ful, and her per­for­mance, as the well-mean­ing mem­ber of an out­reach pro­gramme for in­ner-city schools, is ex­cel­lent. Tonight, the se­ries re­turns for a se­cond run and Issa is try­ing to piece her­self to­gether post break-up. Rachel Ward
