Critic Reviews for black-ish Season 4

[Juneteenth] is an impeccable and unforgettable piece of work.

Unlike last season's opening misfire, Juneteenth makes clear that Black-ish's fourth season is playing for keeps.

Oct 4, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Black-ish digs into race, America, stereotyping, interracial dating, class, family, and generational issues, usually with more sophistication than you'd expect from a network sitcom.

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Season three saw Black-ish take on some of the show's most controversial topics, but "Juneteenth" is Black-ish sticking to the basics.

Oct 4, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The show's Season 4 premiere, "Juneteenth: The Musical," is the most powerful breakout so far.

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Anyone who has watched previous seasons knows that when it comes to discussing race and politics, the writers don't play it safe, no matter how uncomfortable some people may feel. This first episode proves this season will be no different.

Oct 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Black-ish using its broadcast network platform to help people understand Juneteenth is so important.

Oct 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Dre sadly points out that the country's acknowledgement of Juneteenth wouldn't be a cure-all, but it would at least feel like an apology for everything black people have had to endure in America.

Oct 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Even by the series' standards, this was stellar.

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

The work that Black-ish is doing is so incredibly important.

Jun 21, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

To put it plainly, last night's black-ish was lit. It was a full-on celebration of Black history and culture. It's going to be a hard act (literally) to follow for the rest of the season.

    This show is gold and i love every bit of it.I don't know how this show has 47% Audience Ratting.Its a good family Sitcom.
  • Jan 23, 2019
    The way this series handled its first major complex issue was brilliantly done. The topic of divcorce and its impact on interpersonal relationships between and amongst people was majestic. This show is always entertaining, but this was a great moment in television history.

    I tried liking this show, but after 8 episodes, I couldn't take it anymore. It wasn't funny and I found myself more frustrated by watching such stupidity.
  • May 13, 2018
    Season one was pretty good, but this show has gotten old fast.
  • May 05, 2018
    tHIS SHOW IS TOO GOOD FOR 46% RATING. i CANT HELP BUT THINK RACISM IS A FACTOR, OH WELL. i LOVE IT! EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER IN THE ENSEMBLE, WELL NOT SURE ABOUT THE BABY YET BUT THEY ARE ALL FUNNY AS HELL, VERY WELL WRITTEN.
  • May 01, 2018
    tHE FIRST FEW EPISODES OF THE FIRST SEASON WERE REALLY GREAT. tHEN IT SLOWLY WORKED ITS WAY TO PREACHY, PREDICTABLE AND CARICATURE CHARACTERS THAT DON'T WORK. cLEARLY THERE'S A DISCONNECT BETWEEN THE CRITICS RATINGS AND THE AUDIENCE SCORE. iS SOMEONE GETTING PAID? mEH.
  • Apr 10, 2018
    Consistently entertaining. The kids are just as important to the show as the adults, not just little props and have great comedic timing.
  • Mar 29, 2018
    Still the best family on network tv.. Brilliant.
  • Mar 27, 2018
    Why am I feeling overeducated in this series. By the way, I did grow up in middle Chicago. Lived with, dealt with issues. It COULD be funny, but it ain't.
