NVTV 17: Black-Ish and the Treadmill of Adequacy

I don't have a ton to say about Black-Ish this week, though it was the best episode yet. They minimized the involvement of the children, leaned into their strong adult cast (including more than two scenes of Lawrence Fishburne!), and the joke-writing improved, however slightly. That said, it's still a very vanilla show that's afraid to take interesting chances or write to anyone other than the cheap seats, and therefore it's still largely a chore to get through. Fingers crossed they eventually punch up the writing and/or audacity and turn the show into something that's worth watching.
