Dave is one of the most important TV shows of 2020, and its season finale was everything it should have been. Both laugh-out-loud funny and emotionally uplifting, you need to check out Dave ASAP.
There’s A Lot To Watch, Choose What’s Meaningful In Dave
As a whole, the human race is streaming a lot in 2020. Tons of media on tons of screens every day. We’ve seen the rise of Tiger King, and right now, everyone’s talking about The Last Dance. There appears to be a new ‘flavor of the week’ at least twice a week. And hey, I’m not complaining. Netflix is up. Hulu is up. Amazon, Disney+, YouTube, Twitch, you name it. We’re watching. Media consumption is at a glutenous high… and it’s awesome.
Among the most popular programs at the moment is FXX’s Dave. The comedy toes the line between sitcom and biopic. Dave is, in fact, a fictionalized story about Dave Burd, aka Lil Dicky. Utilizing Burd’s life experiences to weave the story’s web, the show centers on Dave’s quest to become the greatest rapper on earth. Will he become the best rapper alive? Maybe not. But, with the help of his friends, he might convince the world otherwise.
Dave Is You It’s Me
Dave speaks to the creators among us. It resonates with the workers and the doers. Through the laughs and jokes, there is a story about an artist striving to make it. We all know this desire well. Wanting to be the best, wanting to matter, not settling. It’s so relatable. No matter your thoughts on Lil Dicky’s music, the show is remarkable.
A Heartfelt Finale
Throughout the latter half of the show’s first season, the titular character is reluctant to share creative control of his music as any artist would be. Without spoiling anything, Dave sits face to face with an important decision at the end of the final episode. His action during this moment shows growth and maturity. Dave grew up a bit right then, and it’s a feeling I’ve felt within myself when making difficult decisions. A feeling I’m sure you are familiar with as well.
Dave’s finale ends on a high note. It keeps the fun vibes going, while simultaneously tugging on the heartstrings of viewers. You can find the entire season on Hulu and need to watch it.
