With the help of his father (Laurence Fishburne), Dre begins to try to create a sense of ethnic identity for the members of his family that will allow them to honor their background while preparing them to embrace the future.

      Joshua Alston New York Magazine/Vulture Black-ish often excels with more serious moments, particularly when they deal directly with racial and political issues. Rated: 4/5 Oct 30, 2018 Full Review Kelly Lawler USA Today To Black-ish's credit, the fact that they dramatized real marital problems without giving them an easy fix is a major achievement for a sitcom. Oct 30, 2018 Full Review LaToya Ferguson AV Club Tuning in week-to-week, growing invested in these characters, that investment doesn't just disappear with something shiny. And there's really nothing shinier than taking your show to Disney, especially right out the gate. Rated: B- Sep 22, 2016 Full Review Jonathan P. Higgins, Ed.D. The Root It feels as if the writers have begun to authentically incorporate current events into the series themes. Nov 5, 2019 Full Review Li Lai Mediaversity Reviews Black-ish tells stories the way they should be told-in fragments of truth, scattered across multiple characters rather than feeding one big, overarching narrative meant to represent every Black American. Rated: A- Aug 5, 2019 Full Review Diondra Powers Black Girl Nerds [The finale] captures Black-ish's signature blend of hilarity and emotional sensitivity while tackling one of the show's toughest, most personal plot lines yet, without leaving the viewer feeling shortchanged -- all within its 30-minute timeslot.
