Raise your hand if you’re disappointed AF by Grownish but continue to watch it in hopes that it actually gets better.
I mean does anyone remember the first season of A Different World? With Denise from the Cosby Show (what’s that lil girl name?)? It was…trash. But of course, the rest of the series was #iconic. So sue me if I want the same for Grownish?? But let’s talk about the good first:
Oh you thought I meant her acting? HA! Absolutely not. I mean is it terrible? Not at all. But let’s just some of her scenes are…cringe-worthy. Wait wait wait, we’re focused on the GOOD here (sorry everyone). The good is that she’s on the show in the first place. I mean, let’s be honest – as far as black TV stars go…Yara is IT. She’s stylish, beautiful, and best of all, ya girl is WOKE.
Now would I necessarily call Grownish a completely accurate depiction of the college experience? Of course not. But I will say it touches on more real issues than most college shows do/have in the past.
Oh you thought I meant their acting? HA! Absolute not (except for Chloe and Halle, they are sooo funny to me). They’re just a cute group of people.
Okay now moving on to the bad.
Think I’m kidding? I’m not. The characters have little to no chemistry, the acting feels like nails scratching on a chalkboard, and the storyline moves too quickly for us, as the audience, to actually feel anything for anyone.
But do I still watch? OF COURSE! #BlackTVShowsMatter. So let’s just cross our fingers and hopeeee that this one gets better.
