Critic Reviews for mixed-ish: Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

I love the premise of this misfit family trying to find where they fit in America's confusing, hypocritical racial hierarchy. And the cast, featuring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tika Sumpter as Rainbow's parents, often shines.

Mixed-ish falls into the trap of framing its protagonists as pioneers of mixed-race consciousness, rather than inheritors of a long and complex history.

There's loads of potential, but the first episode is underwhelming, a little too neat, and too reliant on spelling things out for the audience.

Wise, funny, patient, and full of that quality we call human kindness, something good came from that fraught childhood. "Mixed-ish" is her story and it feels like one worth hearing about.

Santamonica is quickly becoming a favorite character. I'm not sure it's her age or blunt tongue, but she made me laugh this entire episode. The witty one-liners have me laughing out of my chair.

I trust that the talent behind the series created by Kenya Barris, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Peter Saji will work out the kinks, but it's definitely in the wait-and-see category.
