News & Interviews for The Last O.G.: Season 1
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 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.
Get past the series' OK opener along with some of its searing vulgarity - hey, this is a Tracy Morgan show, after all - and "The Last O.G." settles down into something else and something better
Above all, "The Last O.G." is a showcase for Morgan, and he enjoys a star's triumph.
I can't say The Last O.G. is a triumph; the writing would need to cut even deeper for that, and every single jail-shower joke would need to miraculously disappear. But it's nonetheless a promising vehicle for Morgan, and I'm eager to see where it goes.
