Today’s show that I hope you’re watching is Black-ish.
I can’t say enough about Black-ish. I think too many folks were in their feelings about the title of the show, and came at it super-critical. That they never gave it a chance.
The show started good, and just has gotten better.
Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis-Ross are fabulous casting as the parents – Andre and Rainbow Johnson.
The four young actors playing their children are excellent, and have only honed their comedic skills as the show has gone on. The girl playing the youngest child Diane: Marsai Martin….someone, anyone…find other roles for her – she’s amazing.
Not only that, but you have veteran actors Laurence Fishburne, Jennifer Lewis as the grandparents.
Black-ish’s use of guest stars doesn’t detract from the show – they’ve figured out a way to use the guest stars to add to the show.
It’s a constant questioning of Old School vs. New School Black parenting; asking all the different questions along the way.
