Andre "Dre" Johnson has it all...a job as a top ad exec, a beautiful doctor wife, four great kids and a lovely, well-appointed house in the suburbs. And he's not about to let his family forget how they got there. Keeping cultural identity alive is not without its challenges for this man on a mission. With perpetual pushback from clueless coworkers, an outspoken father, and even the wife and kids, Dre's efforts to enlighten are exhausting. Forced to straddle two worlds and three generations, he's one man determined to make his point.

Definitely worth Watching I Love all of the actors & actresses in this show. Anthony Anderson, Tracy Ellis Ross, Laurence Fishbourne, & Especially Yara Shahidi, A Beautiful, Sassy, Young, Stylish, teenager growing up in a upper middle family. She is also in the popular TV show Grown ish (Which is also available on Hulu). There are at least 5 more seasons of Black ish available to view as well. The show is definitely a comedy & you will surely get a good laugh.

I watched a few episodes of this sitcom but it was just too stupid to continue. It could have been great - and some of it was good - but most of it was the same old same old. I know the creators are trying to be topical but they don't really hit the mark often enough. Maybe they are trying to be "safe" and not offend anyone.

Initially I was dismissive of this because, well, it's a sitcom on network TV. But a profile of creator Kenya Barris that I read in "The New Yorker" (I'm very sophisticated.) convinced me to check it out. I'm glad I did. While it doesn't stray too far from a sitcom set up, it's unusually well-written, has a great cast, and, most notably, deals both comically and insightfully with race. Anthony Anderson plays the race conscious, well-meaning patriarch, Tracee Ellis Ross (Dianna Ross's daughter) the mom who really runs the show. Laurence Fisburne has a recurring role as Anderson's philandering, hard-drinking (but lovable) dad. Way better than the overrated "Modern Family." It's also available on Hulu.
