This is a good spin-off of Black-ish and it was smart to target a younger audience with the college setting (dare I say that I enjoy Grown-ish a tad more than Black-ish because of the youthful approach).

However, there are some things which are annoying such as the heavy focus on Zoey's relationships and her immature response to some situations such as taking drugs and her willingness to give up her education/dreams for her boyfriend/relationship. I feel like the Black-ish Zoey was more confident, wiser and smarter, but I guess they had to dumb down the character to fit the new college narrative to make the show interesting.

This is definitely one to watch if you're a younger fan of Black-ish or just like teen/college-based shows.

I really enjoy watching black-ish so was excited to see this had been made. It has a bit too much 'typical teen movie' vibe for my liking, so much attention is put on Zoey and boys which I don't think follows Black-ish in being a funny yet educational program where you can take something from every episode. Zoey definitely seems more grounded and mature in Black-ish and some of the decisions she makes in this spin-off don't follow suit. I will continue to watch though as I think it's still interesting enough

I wish the show wasn't so boy-crazy! On Black-ish Zoe was a cool and independent character but Grown-ish has her just focused on boys. There would be so many more interesting story lines to find!

A spin-off of “Black-ish”, the oldest daughter is on her path through college. When she was on “Black-ish” she had this snide know-it-all attitude, but on “Grown-ish” she’s learning, just as most college students, that life isn’t as easy as she thought, when you’re no longer among the most popular. Learning that every behavior has consequences, good and bad. It’s a much better show than most would expect.

If you have ever entered college at the freshman level, this is the show to watch.
This show reflects a time when there were more questions then there were answers.
This is a great vehicle for Yara Shahidi and the ensemble gathered, and lest not forget the crazy professor, in this case, portrayed by comedian Deon Cole.
This funny and crazy comedy is absolutely relevant for college and college bound students.

This what happens when you take the least interesting character on a show and design a spin off around them. I'll give it a few more episodes but the pilot is awful. And why did the hookers look like they were dressed for the Rocky Horror Picture Show?
