    I just don't care for Blackish. Being black, you would think I would relate and love the show, I don't know.

    I love sitcoms, especially black sitcoms, but I just do not like this show.

    I saw the pilot, and I just didn't care for it. I felt it was just kinda corny.

    I also don't like most of the homophobic undertones, and lack of LGBT discussion when that is a hot topic in the black community they can touch on, that Modern Family, (which I do not like that show either mind you. lol) a white sitcom, does a good job portraying.

    Most of the jokes just have "white people" comedy tied to it. To me it seems kinda whitewashed a lot.

    I don't know.

    Not quite sure of the homophobic undertones you're speaking of because as a person whose seen every episode I haven't see any. Also the handled the gay aunt / wedding episodes very well while holding a mirror up to the Black community.

    I see. I've only seen the pilot, and I'm making my observations from the pilot episode.

    I haven't seen any other episodes. I don't know.

    I saw the first 2 or 3 episodes and I just felt it was corny. I love Tracee Ellis Ross in Girlfriends and Anthony Anderson in Next Friday but nope... Black-ish ain't it for me

    I catch episodes of it every now and then, and have seen some episodes like when his lesbian sister came to visit, but I could never bother to get fully invested in the show itself.

    I wasnt feeling after the pilot. But i was convinced to give it another shot and ended up liking it. The whole cast is great. Try a few other episodes.

    You should really go back and give a whole season then come back & see if you still feel the same way.
