It has been noted that there has been a recent surge in TV shows prominently featuring blacks or with predominately black casts. Some are pretty good but most are just bad - like most TV fare these days. After viewing the first two episodes, I'll state that this one is not too bad. More "dramedy" than "comedy" which is not particularly a bad thing. It will just need time to fully develop its voice.
The writing is good. The acting is natural and not overplayed like some kind of urban passion play and there's a little subtlety there. They're going after familiar issues but keeping it entertaining and engaging without that TV show proselytizing that can drag it down.
To juxtapose this show against another one I just recently watched also, "Black-ish" seems to have a better cast working with similar themes but tries too hard to do what "Survivor's Remorse" did without cardboard cut-outs. This show has a chance to be really good if given a chance.
