SPOILER WARNING IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE NEWEST BLACKISH SKIP THIS POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alright are all the late comers gone? Cool. So I’ll be the first to admit that when I first saw the trailers for Blackish I didn’t hold out much hope. As much as I wanted it to be it just didn’t look funny. So you can imagine my surprise when after being forced to sit through an episode the show skyrocketed to one of my favorite TV shows of 2014. A lot of this had to do with my favorite character Charlie played by the ever hilarious Deon Cole. As much as I love Dre and his family there’s nothing like the appearance of a chaotic Charlie to spice up a scene. Which is why I was bummed when this weeks episode ended with him leaving the show. Charlie certainly didn’t leave the greatest of first impressions on Dre but through the seasons we’ve seen their friendship grow and it was nice to see how far Dre would go to save his friend’s job. Charlie’s goodbye genuinely touching and even left open the door for the occasional reappearance. As sad as it is to see Cole leave the cast, at the end of the day all we can do is follow in Dre’s example and wish him luck in whatever his next step might be. So thanks for the laughs Cole and hopefully we’ll be seeing more of you before too long.
