    Don't You Be My Neighbor

    Jack and Diane are not the little Johnson kids anymore.

    They are officially teenagers and black-ish Season 5 Episode 2 was a first glimpse at what life is going to be like for Bow and Dre now that the twins are growing up.

    black-ish gets so many things right, but there is always one thing that makes it stand apart from the rest. It uses comedy to tackle serious, vital topics.

    Dre's initial response to not get the cops involved in dealing with the disrupting Airbnb renters is a common one. People want to keep the peace, stick to themselves and they do not want to be snitches.

    I liked Dre's hesitation to call the cops. He took pride in not being a snitch.

    However, after much goating from the guys at work, Dre changed his stance. It was a little hard to believe he changed his strong position because of his homeowner rights.

    Is it just me, or do the Johnsons have a ridiculous amount of family traditions?

    Dre is also a little obsessed with holidays in general. Are we going to get a President's Day episode? Memorial Day? I can just imagine what their Fourth of July traditions would look like. I'm guessing costumes and lots of illegal fireworks, but they have to save something for season 2, right?

    Anyway, black-ish Season 1 Episode 12 brought us the annual Johnson family Martin Luther "Skiing" Day tradition and personally I thought it fell flat. Humor-wise, I just wasn't feeling it. 

    Charlie is getting more obnoxious as the season goes on. I get that he guilt tripped Dre into bringing him on the ski trip, but it still baffles me that he spends any time outside of work with him at all. Who or what was in his trunk? It would not shock me at all if Charlie turned out to be a serial killer.

    Also, remember how Junior and Charlie's son hit it off? Wouldn't it have made...

    Law of Attraction

    Okay, we all agree that Ruby is completely insane right? Not to mention a pyromaniac...remind me not to get on her bad side!

    Pops finally returns in black-ish Season 1 Episode 11 and now we know why he hightails it to Bermuda whenever Ruby comes to visit. Their relationship couldn't be more toxic. 

    Their hot and cold attraction to each other can be turned on a dime and it's no wonder Dre worries about the effect it will have on Jack and Diane. It's bad enough he had to go through his parents' divorce without the risk that his own children will be devastated when their relationship fails again. Pops may want to stop investing in boats if he's going to continue making the same mistakes over and over again in regards to Ruby. 

    Dre's "manliness" comes into question when he fails to stand up to a guy who cuts Rainbow in line at the valet. Honestly though, Dre's reaction seemed pretty in character for what we've seen of him so far this season. I do believ...
