Tv Season Info

Tray Barker (Tracy Morgan) returns home to Brooklyn after spending 15 years in prison, only to find his home much changed from gentrification. Among the many changes Tray needs to adjust to is his ex-girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish) raising their twins Amira (Taylor Christian Mosby) and Shazad (Dante Hoagland) with her husband Josh (Ryan Gaul), who happens to be white. With the aid of his cousin Bobby (Allen Maldonado) and his halfway house gang, led by house owner Miniard Mullins (Cedric the Entertainer), Tray tries to walk the straight and narrow so he could stay close to his kids. His new way of living, however, gets threatened when he crosses paths with Wavy (Malik Yoba), the man who got him into prison in the first place.

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.

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