Well that was a heavy season opener. 

I did laugh when Calvin told Tina and Marty he wasn't going to endanger any more people he loved and then told Dave to come along, heh. 

Also, Grover misspelling Malcolm's name made me laugh. 

Tina and Gemma's kitchen discussion was really powerful as was Gemma's discussion with Grover.

Tichina Arnold who plays Tina Butler had surgery on her foot recently. She stayed behind the couch for the first half of the episode and then had a foot injury for the rest of the episode. I am guessing she hasn't fully recovered yet.

Dave seemed way too clueless this episode.

They exaggerated to make a point. From what I have gathered from interviews, it seems like the rest of the season will not be so heavy. It's back to business as usual from Ep 2.

I thought it was appropriate for them to address the issue, and I think they did well with it. It was smart to let Gemma and Dave take a back seat to Calvin and his family.

I was worried that as soon as Calvin took the brick from Malcolm the police would see him with the brick and arrest him. I'm glad they didn't go there; I much prefer the father-son hug.

It's tough for a comedy to deal with real issues. Good job.

Excellent episode. I really liked how they didn't shy away from Gemma having the conversation about his privilege with Grover. It's a heavy topic for a child but as long as black and brown parents are going to have to have "what to when approached by a police officer" conversations with their black and brown children those same conversations about white privilege and police interaction must he bad with white children.

I was, too. All I kept thinking was, "Put the brick down, Calvin." And I breathed a sigh of relief when he finally did.

I think it is helpful for the white adults who "worked hard for everything they have" to hear those conversations too and by having the conversation with Grover it frames it in a way adults can understand too. At work recently, we had to attend diversity training and many of our folks just don't believe white privilege is a thing.
