Critic Reviews for mixed-ish Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

Mixed-ish falls into the trap of framing its protagonists as pioneers of mixed-race consciousness, rather than inheritors of a long and complex history.

Wise, funny, patient, and full of that quality we call human kindness, something good came from that fraught childhood. "Mixed-ish" is her story and it feels like one worth hearing about.

Top Critic

There's loads of potential, but the first episode is underwhelming, a little too neat, and too reliant on spelling things out for the audience.

I trust that the talent behind the series created by Kenya Barris, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Peter Saji will work out the kinks, but it's definitely in the wait-and-see category.

I just love the whole cast.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

From the first episode, it looks like mixed-ish, in the same vein of its predecessor black-ish, has all the ingredients to tackle those difficult grey areas in a smart, articulate, and funny way.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Mixed-ish has the potential to be as good as Black-ish if Barris and Gist let young Bow and her mother Alicia lead the way.

Sep 25, 2019 | Full Review…

"Black-ish" spin-off has a uniquely wonderful take on race.

Oct 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

On first glance, "Mixed-ish" shows potential. Much like its lead character, though, it struggles to decide what it wants to be.

Oct 1, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Much like being bi-racial creates a different racial experience, mixed-ish is a different kind of show - and that's ok. It's a lane to explore those differences in all of its nuances,

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Perhaps Barris has recaptured some of the magic of his original work... Mixed-ish has a much fresher feel than the other shows.

Sep 25, 2019 | Full Review…

There may be a few too many precocious kid scenes, but the tone is warm, the cast is likable and the '80s details are a nostalgic kick.

    So real and Nostalgic lol

    Love this show! It is really coming into its own each episode. It's especially popular with my dd and I as I am Caucasian and my husband is African-American. On top of it my mixed daughter is 12 and in seventh grade just like Bow! She loved the episode about mixed race/black hair and felt it was spot on. The writing is quite sharp -- I really liked the slip in of the line 'Saved by the Bell' for Mark Paul Gosselar. I really think Tikka Sumpter does a great job -- fun to see her in a dramedy type role and not as the badgirl. Highly recommend and hope there are many more seasons -- so my dd can 'grow up' with Bow.

    The premise is utterly ridiculous -- a black/white mixed child -- Rainbow -- can *decide for herself* in 1985 whether she self-identifies as black or white? Really? Rachel Dolezal is more believable. This is an insult to my intelligence and a complete white-washing (pun intended) of the history of American race relations. I can't decide if it's his character or his acting -- or both -- but Paul (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) is just awful. Cringe-worthy, to be polite.

    Another Hot Garbage show that is Unreal. Mulattoes- Mixed folk all my Life have been black. there was no ambiguity. And the whole changeing the mom from light to dark was just flat out wacky. Do Better

    SO timely and delightful! Poignant and funny! The second episode was a home run!!! The writing was RIGHT on. The character development and acting on point. America NEEDS MIX-ED-ISH

    NOT funny at all... I nearly fell asleep falling off the sofa. Luckily, there was a new Black ish episode to watch right after. The Parent and their story during that time frame as a by-product of the 1970s is a HUGE STRETCH! BTW, what happened to Rainbow's ORIGINAL MOTHER who debuted in a recurring role on Black ish? SHE and her naivety were/are more believable! These NEW Rainbow Parents seem to be a nod to Tracey Ross's biological parents, specifically the NEW MOTHER as Diana Ross reincarnated - NOT A FAN!

    I think it's an interesting show.
