So I finally finished watching Crazyhead on Netflix and I'll admit...I'm a fan. Crazyhead has shades of Buffy the Vampire Slayer as well as echoes of '80s horror, not to mention that signature modern British style of humor, so there's definitely a lot to work with here.
What They Did Right
Casting British-Nigerian actress Susan Wokoma as Raquel earns Crazyhead very, very high marks from me. She's dark-skinned with proud West African features, curly-haired, awkward as hell, she's not a size 2, and in the Crazyhead universe, she's the Chosen One. So if we end up having to choose between Wokoma as Cynthia on Chewing Gum (where I absolutely adore her) or Raquel on Crazyhead...I vote for Raquel. Since both shows stay within the 6-8 episode range per season, hopefully, she can continue doing both.
