Is I’m a Virgo the Strangest Series of the Year?

Boots Riley’s latest television series, “I’m a Virgo,” is a seven-part absurdist comedy 

that stands out as one of the most unusual and creative shows of the year.  

Starring Jharrel Jerome, known for his Emmy-winning performance in Ava DuVernay 

“When They See Us,” as a 13-foot-tall, 19-year-old Black man named Cootie, the series promises an imaginative and ambitious viewing experience. 

The story revolves around Cootie, who has spent his entire life sheltered in the home of his uncle and aunt 

His abnormal height and appearance have kept him hidden from the outside world 

Cootie’s perception of the outside world is limited to what he has seen on television 

Cootie continues to grow, his size becomes a hindrance.
