News & Interviews for black-ish: Season 5
Gap Year sets the new normal for Black-ish season five well, but tonally, the show's not quite back yet.
While more tired than it's ever felt, is still one of TV's best family comedies, mixing the sort of lighthearted family stories that are the center of this subgenre with more thoughtful and probing explorations of black life in America.
The universal touch is how with this new season, the seasons of life are taking new turns as everyone continues to grow up.
[In season 5,] my eyes were firmly on Diane (Marsai Martin) who is on the precipice of something great. In fact, I'm calling it now: Diane is going to shine in this season.
Audience Reviews for black-ish: Season 5
Dec 02, 2019Absolutely love this show. Must watch
Sep 07, 2019My family and I love this show. It is so funny. I love how they talk about real life topics.
Jun 24, 2019Ive never seen a more racist show on local TV. If there was a show called "white-ish" it would be banned. All they did was talk about how they needed guns to protect themselves. Complete TRASH that should not be on our TV. Stereotyping at its finest.
Mar 27, 2019The show isn't just funny, it provides great insight about the issues within our communities etc
Feb 19, 2019Awful show. Not one thing funny about it.
Jan 04, 2019It's one thing if you use generalizations to make lighthearted jokes...it's another if you use them as a foundation for political absolutes.
Oct 24, 2018It is still the best family comedy on TV. And one of the best comedy's on TV period.
Jul 08, 2018Previously, Blackish provided a near-perfect blend of humour, family-fun and cultural awareness. However, Season 5 fails to further these characters in meaningful ways and, in fact, often does the opposite to afford cheap laughs. That said, most of the jokes still land and the cultural commentary is still welcome. In addition, Anthony Andersons workplace drama is the best part of the show, specifically Deon Coles Charlie Telphy (and Jenifer Lewiss Ruby Johnson). However, the plot lines are repetitive and dull. Perhaps, most importantly, these characters havent grown since the last season to the extent that they have become genuinely unlikeable. The two lead characters, Tracee Ellis-Rosss Rainbow and Anthony Andersons Dre, are some of the most irritating and unpleasant characters on television. This season manages (barely) to find itself through a few good performances and humour but, Blackish is headed for extinction.
