Critic Reviews for Boomerang Season 1

All Critics (12) | 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.

I couldn't be more excited to have Lena Waithe's creativity out there pulling for us.

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.

    We love this show!!! Lena Waithe did it again! I also love that Halle Berry came back around full circle. Boomerang is a classic and I am much more interest in knowing what happened to the characters after the happy ending. Marcus stayed a dog huh? Welll... I'm Looking forward to seeing Halles character in cameos as the mother of a young woman. Holding my breathe for season 2. ����

    It's not a perfect series but it visualizes young adults in a great way showing that there are those of this generation trying to make it to the top tiers and it also thanks to great writing and performances that this show can be around for a while.

    Very Very Refreshing. The perfect release of a show during Black History Month. Love all the new actors and actresses debuted in the show. Definitely gonna be a show I will be tuning into every episode. Personally

    Great show! New and hip for millennials, but still pays homage to the film. ItÂ?â??s a show both young and ones familiar with the film will love!
