    The acclaimed, Emmy nominated comedy returns tonight. Promos have said tonight’s episode is so epic that people aren’t going to stop talking about it and they won’t show any footage from it. Umm… this premiere better be great.

    I was predicting black-ish to be dropped by the Emmys for series with all of the new competition, but damn, this is how you open a fucking premiere.

    Shout out to the entire cast for delivering the one liners. This was a fucking hilarious episode, but it had some very poignant commentary as well. It was a bit silly at times but I had a smile on my face the entire time. When Aloe Blac started singing the slave version of “I’m Just a Bill”, I died.

    This could be the episode that finally gets the show a writing and/or directing nomination, especially with the absences of Veep and Master of None.

    I also expect the show to get nominations for at least one original song, and possibly choreography.

    black-ish has great episodes, but ti is always held back by being EXTREMELY inconsistent. Hopefully the entire season stays great.

    My Grade: A
    MVP: Anthony Anderson

    Did they really have to throw in that tag at the end, where Anthony Anderson says that the apology resolution does not authorize, support, or serve as a settlement of, any claim against the federal government?

    And I guess they are taking that college spinoff seriously; I did not notice that Yara Shahidi’s name had been removed from the opening credits until I saw it in the closing credits.

    Oh, and while we’re throwing Emmy nominations as the episode (not that it doesn’t make a strong case for writing, mind you, but then again, so did “Hope”), how about an Individual Animation Achievement Emmy (it’s one of those categories that doesn’t have nominations) for whoever designed the animated segment? Speaking of which, I wonder if they’ll consider the song enough of a change from “I’m Just a Bill” to be original.

    What a great season premiere! Anthony was the MVP. Hopefully, they will continue to let Tracee shine as well. Great writing and remained poignant and funny throughout.

    I was not a fan of this episode … I think that when the focus on a social message to strongly they forgo some of the comedy. i feel like they are sometimes a comedy and sometimes a drama.

    Solid episode. This was the best tape yet for Ross, Lewis, and Fushburne. Ross was excellent and this was the first time Lewis pushed beyond her cartoonish two dimensional, yet extremely entertaining, character. If Fishburne is smart enough to submit in guest this year, he could submit this when he gets nominated. However, he keeps submitting supporting even though he has been guest eligible, so he won’t get in. This episode was very good.

    Very good episode. Obvious early submission for Ross and the show.

    However this show also should be cancelled right away for making us see that motherfucking awful shirt Anthony Anderson wore on this episode. It was like 5 shirts in one. I have never seen something so awful. It had a nice run. I don’t know if I can ever watch television again.

    What show are you watching??? Black-ish tackles social issues every week.

    I wouldn’t say every week. What was the social issue in the “Compton basketball” episode, unless it was about fans abusing basketball referees like Junior?

    yea they defiantly dont do social justice episodes every week. I dont mind when they do them every so often i just wished they had not done it for the premiere… Now this weeks episode was spectacular. its exactly what i expect from the show a mix of a real issue and dose of comedy.. the bits with pops and the baby proof stuff were great . they should have made this the premiere then done the slave one second.

    I liked the 2nd episode much better. Great showcase for Tracee and Anthony.

    OK, this was one of my favorite episodes of the show to date! If episodes still mattered as much current day, and if she could slide into the race, Jenifer Lewis would be a top contender! She was simply outstanding! If the powers that be don’t push her further for a nomination, it would be a great injustice. Her chemistry with Anthony and Tracee is unmatched, be it involving a funny situation, or not so funny. What a great showcase this was for her!!! Now, on to that damn Marsai Martin! This little girl is a budding comedic genius! She was amazing as the little girl with the classic crush on the older boy, and she killed it! WOW!!! Her comedic timing is unreal. Good to see Trevor Jackson continue to build upon his resume. Obviously we’ll be seeing more of him in the spinoff, also.

    A+

    Best episode of the series. No drama. Pure fun. I loved “Hope”, “LEMONS”, and “JUNETEENTH” but they all feel borderline gimmicky. This episode was pure energy. It was so hilarious and inspired. And it’s Anthony Anderson’s obvious tape. This should be the sole directing and editing submission.
