Storyline

Like any parents, Andre "Dre" and Rainbow Johnson want to give their children the best. But their offspring's childhood is turning out to be much different than theirs. They now realize at least two things: there is a price to pay for giving their children more than what they ever had, and these loving parents are totally unprepared for the fallout.

for people who call it stereotyping, this is a story that casts my life, hilariously
31 October 2015 | by docdmartinezSee all my reviews

It is the little things in the show that make it special to me. The women putting up their hair at night. The educated black parents who still make comments about gays ("not in my family!") and Republicans. The kid playing lacrosse instead of basketball - my brother's kids. Cousin Junebug - got one. Cousins from the hood - the day before my brother in law gave his 5 year old a 8 in knife to cut the pumpkin, then posed the pumpkin with a joint in its mouth. Straight up from Inglewood! I love this show. Hot, smart, doctor wife - ME! When shows are on with black people in them, those cultural issues that bring an air of truthfulness are just not there. Has anyone seen "Jessie" on Disney. The youngest black child has a head full of hair. And NEVER goes to the hairdresser. Don't believe the hype folks. Believe in Blackish. Funny. Thank you for this great new show.
