Season 1 - Random Acts of Flyness
"Terence Nance introduces his new late-night series before being stopped by the NYPD. Segments include: \"Everybody Dies!,\" a cable-access show hosted by \"Ripa the Reaper\"; an infomercial for a topical-ointment cure for \"white thoughts\"; and a talk show on sex in the black community."
"This week's program begins with a video game to train an army of black women to defend themselves against aggressors. A gender-diverse group of subjects talk about the performance of gender. A wise uncle attempts to program his nephews on how not to be creepy. Speaking of creepy, Wendy gets lured into \"Nuncaland,\" the Dominican-American fable inspired by a classic children's story."
"This week's program moves from the story of an afro that goes to prison for \"badness\"' to a family mourning a high-profile case of police violence. Also, does the Second Amendment apply to black people? Contestants on the game show \"Hotep Squares\" are asked about that, and many more questions on this week's Random Acts of Flyness."
"Most abuse happens within families and the lines between care, conflict, and chaos are volatile. This week's program addresses some of the dangling threads from past and future episodes, including the perfect apology, a very competitive game of spades and a celebrity's latest business venture."
"A young Martin Luther King, Jr. wakes from a dream. A movie star with writer's block finds inspiration in Africa and stumbles upon the devil within."
"A woman stays woke too long. In the not-too-distant future, a waitress contemplates uploading her consciousness to the cloud amidst warnings of an impending hurricane. After Najja has her demons exorcised, her Jealousy tries to talk its way back into her life. Artist Stephanie Dinkins describes her encounters with a simulated black woman."
