Blackish

#Blackish is literally the funniest show ok tv. No lie … I had to explain to my 76 yr old mother that #Blackish was kinda like the reverse of Archie Bunker.

I just don’t agree. It seems to be an effort to an updated version of “The Cosby Show.” That was a comedy that centered on the lives of the Huxtables: obstetrician Cliff and his lawyer wife Claire, their daughters Sondra, Denise, Vanessa and Rudy, and son Theo.

There is no comparison. Blackish tries to confront issues of a successful black family in Sherman Oaks. That is an upscale neighborhood in Los Angeles.

This is not a program I watch with any frequency. I did tonight as the program confronted a White 4 year old child on an elevator alone, going to a meeting of White home owners association and being stopped by the police while driving home without a driver’s license. The father Dre Johnson (Anthony Anderson) runs away from the police when he is stopped on the way home. That is not funny and there is no explanation about how he gets home without being stopped by the police. Not funny!

This program is trying to address serious issues using comedy. Frankly, in my opinion, it fails.
