It's time to cut the shit HBO. Let's be real. I like Silicon Valley. It's decent but that shit got a third season and How To Make It In America did not. Someone from the company has to run me my fade. Complete and utter bullshit there was no renewal for a third season. Let me guess "The Leftovers" is getting a third season too. No one care about that shit. Make that weak ass show disappear with the 2% of the population that disappeared on it. Take that weak ass show "Girls" too.
Being a ugly man that can't dress that well. How to make it in America really helped me put together some basic but stylish outfits together. Even had me willing to search the net and overpay for a O.G Nike Destroyer jacket. For the greater good (the greater good being me looking flyer than the Squirtle Squad) bring back this show so my closet can look immaculate again.
He was a dog walking dank dealer with a 70's blaxploitation film character name who tasted Rachel's titties. I really envied his life. I love dogs. I love weed. I love Rachel's titties. One quote he had that will forever keep me motivated to work towards being a boss is "See that's why I'm self employed. I'm already at the office." He says this while laying next to titties with a blunt in his hand. The good life.
MADE ME GIVE A FUCK BOUT NEW YORK
I never really cared for New York when I visited because my demeanor is the complete opposite of the city. People drive like maniacs. Everything and everyone is in a hurry. I've never seen so many rats in my life. It's noisy. It stinks. Everything overpriced for no reason. I just liked all the food options. When I started watching How To Make It In America I had a better understanding of why that city is the way it is and why some of the people up there act like dicks. I actually thought "Damn I could actually live there, and not shoot anybody. Is it really worth me paying a grand a month for an apartment the size of a hallway?" The fact the show made me even consider it means the imagery was great. The pictures and the scenery of the Lower East Side on this show were fucking amazing. A beautiful sight.
A show full of Diversity. The setting being in New York helps of course but seeing a group of friends all different ethnicities is very refreshing and important to experience.
THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A PLAN
Realistically Cam and Ben would've failed. Miserably. Just having hustle to get into the high end fashion industry is not enough. Fashion industry in difficult to break into. You have to have a plan. It's one of my rare gripes about this show. Hustle is a part of success but these dudes had no plan at all and thought they would make it in the fashion industry. They basically were winging it. "We didn't intend to sell jeans but since we scored some nice denim fuck it, we're making jeans." It's really funny when you think about it. I learned the importance of a plan. Place their hustle and vision with an actual plan and you're on the right track.
I'm not ever saying bromance. Fuck that word. I like the homie-ance of the show. Very similar to the Entourage crew only with less naked women and sports cars. Mark Wahlberg is involved with both shows so it makes sense. Outside of Dom fucking his friend ex girl like an asshole. The Homie-ance was dope.
MOTIVATION FOR BUSINESS OWNERS
I don't need much motivation because I'm poor and go to a job. What could be more motivating than that right? When I was brainstorming ideas to start this site, I had episodes of this show playing on Amazon Prime to get me pumped up. All that was missing was a quiet woman in a sundress. This show just always gave me an extra push to work harder at whatever project I was working on at the time when it was on air. It was also perfect because it came on Sunday nights and it was just the type of motivation I needed to start my week and actually give a fuck about Monday. Monday's aren't bad. They're just bad to those of us who aren't doing what we want for a living. We saw two friends who were really business partners by fault care so much about what they were trying to build that it was very infectious to a person chasing a goal. It wasn't just motivation for business owners I suppose. It was motivation for anyone with a goal to improve their life and do something that they love. Watching two friends make sacrifices and risk it all just to make everything make sense for their lives was refreshing.
I liked that the obstacles the characters ran into were annoying. They weren't catastrophic but if you're aspiring to do something there is always something in the way. There were little up's and down's. It's how life is. There's always obstacles.
THE STORY NEVER ENDED
This is what bugs me the most about the cancellation. The first season was really slow. It was honestly average but a lot of shows are like that. "Parks And Recreation" was like that and went on to be a hit. How To Make It In America finally hit it's stride in the second season. It improved a lot from the first season so I don't know how in the fuck cancellation was an option. The story wasn't finished. Ben and Cam finally broke some ground with their brand. Rena broke ground with Rasta Monsta and had relationship troubles. Rachel, who was a very underrated story of the second season because of her comical search for a life of meaning and passion and she was back in a situation she really didn't want to be in. Ben and Rachel were also growing further apart in season 2 and it was interesting to see where they would stand with each other in the future. Everything was unsolved which bothers the fuck out of me. I'm good for 3 more seasons to bring everything to a close.
I've seen more than enough outcry on social media to bring the show back. HBO, stop fucking around and just give the people what they want. If Family Guy can come back so can How To Make It In America.
I have a better idea.
Netflix. Bring this show and it's future seasons to Netflix. Fuck HBO.
