Kid Cudi on HBO Recap

  • Kid Cudi. On a park bench. In America

Season one of HBO’s mostly-drama How to Make It in America finished Sunday.

Cleveland’s Scott “Kid” Mescudi — also known as rapper Kid Cudi — had a small role as Domingo Brown, a guy with a hot girlfriend. Over the previous seven episodes, he clocked about three minutes of screen time.

The season finale broke his character wide open. All was revealed. We learn that Cudi’s character not only has a hot girlfriend, but a little white dog.

And we finally see the endlessly teased park-bench scene: At a pivotal point, Brown delivers an inspirational speech about uncle in Cleveland — represent!

In summary, Cudi did well with what he was given, which wasn’t much. The show’s good. We hope it comes back soon; it’s hard to imagine the mini-season taking long to produce.

Mescudi was hardly integral to the show, but he’d be welcome in a second season.

Now it’s time to catch up on HBO’s World War II drama The Pacific. Send an e-mail if you want to know how it ends. —D.X. Ferris
