It delivers okay in terms of chuckles, but it also reflects on issues of race and class, and the search for male relevance in a world that in recent years has made many men feel obsolete.

The show demonstrates great potential to be both funny and enlightening on the plight of ex-cons in America.

The Last O.G. doesn't fully commit to being a dramedy: The punchlines sometimes fall flat or feel too retrograde, while the drama feels restrained and too fleeting to land. But it succeeds in telling a story not told enough.

It's definitely worth your watch as a brief summer binge.
April 13, 2018
Morgan and Haddish are reliably funny, and the story of Tray's return to a world that passed him by has a lot of potential.
April 11, 2018
It's true. The Last O.G. may be the best thing Tracy Morgan has ever done.
April 10, 2018
Ex-con rebuilds his life in crude yet oddly sweet comedy.

April 5, 2018
The show indulges and evokes melancholy to curious effect. The story line gathers threads concerning penitence, rehabilitation, gentrification, racial tension, and filial duty with some seriousness, only to abandon them.
April 5, 2018
Once it settles into its groove, The Last O.G. is a wonderfully enjoyable comedy.
April 4, 2018
The Last O.G. plays with [its] dynamic in an entirely expected way.
April 4, 2018
It's Tray's story, but the secondary characters provide just as much reason to stick with The Last O.G.

Perhaps Morgan never knew he had this in him. Maybe audiences didn't either. Surprise, surprise.

The Last O.G., like its protagonist, may be a little imperfect. Still, with [Tracy] Morgan and [Tiffany] Haddish at its center, you're rooting for it and their characters to succeed.
April 3, 2018
Overall, the show is coming out of the gate swinging in a way that can not be ignored. It very much has the potential to become a mainstay series for TBS, as well as a long-term gig for Morgan.
April 3, 2018
Lines may fall flat, but there is enough chemistry among the players to keep The Last O.G decent, indecent company.
April 3, 2018
Nevertheless, you breathe a bit easier when Shay's on screen, if for nothing but the simple pleasure of watching [Tiffany] Haddish elevate occasionally stale, uninspired writing with her moxie and comic instincts.

Writer/director Aaron Katz pokes fun at the all-consuming cinematic nature of Los Angeles by highlighting the intrusive culture of Hollywood.
April 2, 2018
The Last O.G. starts out good, if a bit stiff and formulaic, then gets better in subsequent episodes as we get to know the hero's circle and the cast gets into a new groove together.
April 2, 2018
There are rough spots here and there in The Last O.G., but they are easily smoothed over, especially by the show's excellent core cast. You'll find yourself hoping the O.G. lasts.

Whether trading barbs with Cedric the Entertainer as the jokester head of his halfway house or cajoling the clientele at his coffeehouse workplace, [Tracy] Morgan is a joy.
