S1E9 "The Book of Little Black Lies"

This is the first meh ep we've had of this. And that's not nearly saying it's a bad ep. I actually missed Tobias Whale.

From all evidence, I should really love the Gambi character, but I'm just still not sure what's up with him.

Anissa's joy at being more popular on social media than her dad was very amusing.

Lynn is taking her entire family being superheroes a lot better than I thought she would.

Ditto on Gambi.

Sometimes I feel like this is a show about Black people made for white people. like how some books are ostensibly books about gay people, but they’re really more written for straight people. Sometimes I wonder if that’s the case with black lightning here too.

I've wondered this, too, as all the fans I've encountered so far are white. I remember when The Cosby Show first came on, all my black and white friends loved it. I've also noticed that Black-ish, which I don't relate to because the characters are so rich, yet still enjoy watching, is apparently not watched by any of my friends, black or white.

I have a friend who watches Blackish! I tried to watch it, I just watched 1 episode but it didn't hook me. (And since I have no cable, I'd have to pay to watch the show, so I didn't get into it enough to do so)
