Black-ish in the Media-ish

Recommended Posts

I reserve judgment. They might introduce characters that I like, and that could make the Old-ish show good, and take care of the "too much" quality people fear with Ruby and Earl.

I don't know what they're going to do to keep Black-ish going as they drain more and more of the characters away, but I guess we'll see. Maybe this will be their last season.

I know I'm in the minority with this, but I'd like to see Junior get a show, as well. Even the twins could be interesting, but they're way too young to leave their parents.

I guess we have to five Kenya credit for making a show where every frickin character has spin off potential, with the exception of Devonte.

Devonte is a character? I thought he was a plot device.

Dre is the only one I wouldn't recognize as Dre out of this picture.

And poor Davante.  Didn't even make the animated special.

That's exactly what I was thinking.  Davante never makes the cut.

Zoey looks younger than Junior in the animated series, but that actress is very young looking in general so it's pretty accurate.

Overall, pretty cute, but I have no idea if this will be any good.

Why do they all look depressed?

Black-ish - Season 7 Episode 7 - Black Out     January 26, 2021   ABC  

When the power goes out in the neighborhood, Dre’s instinct is to go into survival mode and stockpile on essentials, while Bow focuses on helping their neighbors. Meanwhile, Junior desperately searches for a place to charge his phone to get in touch with Olivia.

It's time.  I loved it the first few years and they had some standout episodes but it has gone to the "piling up on the DVR and catch up weeks later" category.

Yeah, I think they've squeezed this lemon for all its worth.

Yeah, it's time. 8 seasons is a very good run for most shows (I think most scripted shows shouldn't last more than 7 seasons) and it feels like a good time to end

8 looks to be the magic number for Tracee Ellis Ross.    Her last major series Girlfriends lasted eight seasons.   Hopefully Black-ish gets some closure unlike Girlfriends.

I think it jumped with Devante and the weird multipart storyline between Bow and Dre separation. But at least they can end it how they want.
