Dear White People... based on all of the comments on Reddit, I assumed it was some dumb, preachy show, but a friend kept telling me to give it a shot and once I did, I loved it. I can see why both seasons have 100% on RT, it's really great. Don't always trust Reddit's collective opinion.
I watched the first 15 minutes of American Vandal and figured it was just some silly, long form dick joke and then after a few people started saying it was better and much more than that I gave it another shot and I am glad I did. One of the best seasons of TV in the past couple of years.
I did the exact same thing and never went back to it. I'm going to give it a second shot now after reading your comment.
