Critic Reviews for grown-ish Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (10)

It's a diverse group and a talented one. Many series with young casts filled with new faces have at least one weak spot, but like Dear White People before it, this college comedy seems to have put together one helluva squad.

The fourth wall-shattering Grown-ish is full of Breakfast Club shout-outs and all the cynicism, optimism and insecurities that characterizes the first year of college.

Truly, when deciding whether you should watch the show or not, what it all comes down to is if you want to watch as a group of great characters make you laugh, cry and feel like you've found a new crew of friends.

Exactly what a season finale should look like, all the main characters from episode one make an appearance to cap what has been a delightful run.

Part of the fun of this comedy is watching the series evolve along with the main character.

Nov 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.0/4 | Full Review…

It's a potent, college-comedy-with-basic-cable-cursing chaser to its still-formidable parent series. It's also a chance for star Yara Shahidi to soak up a spotlight.

While it shows some spark and promise, the show's umbilical cord tying it to the Emmy nominated ABC show is more of a hindrance than a help.

A show that I find to be so much fun, so silly, takes me back to being in college... This show is edgier than Black-ish.

Even if you're well past your own college years, you won't regret digging into Zoey's.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Freeform's grown-ish has been a lovely breath of fresh air during the last few weeks. Not just because it's a funny, diverse, and realistic depiction of college, but because it has also provided us with some always-welcome bisexual media representation.
