‘Black-ish’ Spends Christmas at the Movies

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

ABC’s hit series Black-ish decided to spend Christmas in Theater Eight. Every year, the Johnson’s have a tradition of going to the movies for Christmas and like always can never agree on what any of them want to see during the holiday. Dre (Anthony Anderson) is interested in watching a movie about Rosa Parks entitled Back of the Bus, but the rest of the family wants to watch the latest superhero blockbuster called Commander Justice, after passing on Aquaman.

BLACK-ISH – “Christmas in Theater Eight” – TUESDAY, DEC. 11 (9:00-9:30 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network. (ABC/Ron Tom)

As all of this goes on, Junior (Marcus Scribner) runs into his ex-girlfriend Megan (Annelise Grace) and deals with the embarrassment of being dressed like one of the theater employees as well as having to deal with taking a gap year that she referred to as dropping out.

The big joke is that Dre forces everyone to see the Rosa Parks movie out of what his father, Pops (Laurence Fishburne) calls making up for his, “Black Guilt,” that leads everyone to continuously be bored and fall asleep in the film (as the photo indicated above). The secondary joke with Junior and his ex just keeps putting him in that awkward situation where everything you do just keeps coming across as a lie.

The best part about Black-ish is that anyone of any ethnicity can relate to this series, same with those of us who are children of immigrants and our love for Fresh Off the Boat.

What’s even better is that the movie within the episode is so bad everyone not only bails on Dre but Pops calls it time for a, “White Flight.” It also comes across as a shot at Art House Films that lose the message within their “artistic vision,” come to life.

Black-ish airs Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. on ABC.

  • Overall Score
3.5

Summary

Black-ish continues to entertain. Dre and Junior’s stories are most relatable to anyone that’s experienced wanting to either love something so badly that you lie about on how good it is or no matter what you do, you still get put in an awkward position that makes you look like you’re lying.
