Critic Reviews for Boomerang Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

It's great to see a show centered on upwardly mobile blacks, although an early scene in a strip joint seems out of place. The dramedy is much more appealing when it takes you into the boardroom or eavesdrops on the group's game night.

The epitome of Millennial cool - stylish and ambitious, but not willing to be defined in any traditional way.

Relaxed sequel has strong content, challenges stereotypes.

it's a tale tightly told, rather you're a fan of the Boomerang of not. In fact, I would say... it might work even better if you never saw the film... the bones are strong on this one.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The razor-sharp, fast-paced dialogue often sounds like a set of trending topics on Black Twitter, but it doesn't come off as pandering; it feels authentic and relevant.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

It's fun to see the basic tenets of the movie filtered through Lena Waithe's worldview.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Boomerang is sharply detailed, a relatable portrait of young friendship twenty years into the 21st century.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The humor has a gentle bite to it.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Unlike the movie, the series has both a male and female lead, while also offering more nuanced stories about religion, mental illness and sexuality.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Boomerang does a solid job establishing its own universe, while peppering in enough Easter eggs to keep fans of the original happy. It's always nice when kids show respect for their elders.
