TV Gord Reviews Black-ish

In ABC, Citytv by TVGord

It sometimes can be frustrating to review a series based solely on the pilot.  That’s what I found while watching Black-ish.  The first episode tries a little too hard to set up the basic premise for the series, which revolves around the frustration of an African-American father who is raising his children in a predominantly white community while trying to …
