Issa Rae Has A New Web Series And It’s Got People Talking: Check Out “How Men Become Dogs”

Dogs

Around these parts, we love us some Issa Rae, and the writer/producer/director and the genius behind Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl and producer of web series gold like Roomieloverfriends and Fly Guys is the executive producer of a very interesting new web series called, How Men Become Dogs. You read right. Following the relationship disasters of three “good” men who get played or are unappreciated by their girlfriends, they decide that nice guys really do finish last, and that what most women want is dogs. Poodles to pitbulls. Here’s the actual synopsis from the site:

“How Men Become Dogs will go inside the lives of Cameron, Julian and Mario, three bachelors fresh out of heartbreaking relationships.  This series will explore love from a male perspective revealing all of the shady situations men go through that cause them to turn from good guys to narsty dogs.”

There are some slow moments in the first episode, but each man’s story definitely has a lot of humor, especially the fella in the beginning whose girlfriend gives him the death face for planning a picnic in the park. It’s definitely entertaining (It’s a little long, but you’ll be okay if you watch it during your lunch break) and the writing isn’t bad, so we’re guessing you’ll enjoy it. But I did notice that a lot of the conversation surrounding it was that some people, women specifically, didn’t like the stereotypes presented about women in general (though I’m sure we all have known or heard about a woman behaving like the ones in the video at least once). What do you think? Be sure to check it out below and let us know what you think so far.

    • I think it might be that they were so devastated and hurt that they made the choice to become dogs. I don’t think that any is being placed on the women. It’s just my opinion though.
