Hmmm, Could Have Been MUCH Better... Decent Attempt Though
23 November 2015 | by prettyandpeachSee all my reviews

Loved the overall concept of the episode, as this is a real issue. 5 stars.

But this episode gets a 0/10 in the following....

Mitch was doing perfectly when he started out with the black women have been loyal and supportive to black men and etc etc, but then the whole black women as "loud and abrasive" thing is where he went left. The real issue with why some black men don't date black women is the self-hate black men have of themselves--- its a personal issue with the black man and himself... and has nothing to do with black women. I guess they can't get too deep, but the scapegoat of using the black woman was disappointing. This makes me think that there must not be many well-educated black women on staff writing... which is unfortunate.

They used two story lines in which the women had the lower self-esteem or problem or issue. This just, wasn't cool, great topics and issues, but 3rd act could have been better... I mean, there was a resolution in the end. Sadie definitely ended up with Filipno Barbie and Ken - reflecting her parents. But she should have also ended up calling FIlipino Barbie "the pretty Barbie".

They did end up firing the interior decorator and she did end up being the loud, abrasive, and crazy one... I get it. But this episode could have been perfect if Russell lifted up Angie's beauty, said something like, I was kinda a hoe and tried a bunch of different women, but when I met you there was no one else-- you're perfect and no woman is more beautiful than you." It has to be stated that plainly and ideally to hit a home run. There wasn't a need for Angie to say, "and they say black women are crazy" at the end because it was obvious. And people don't say that... they say women are crazy, I've never heard a segmented race being called particularly crazy except maybe latinas and eastern europeans.

They took a lot of the slack and pressure off Russell, the black man, and put it all on Angie, the black women... which is unfortunately a little too reflective of real life. I know its a 30 minute comedy and there's only so much that can be done, but a few small changes and this episode could have been perfect. But maybe next season, they'll find out Angie's was engaged to a guy before Russell and he was white, maybe some hot Australian or something and Russell feels a certain kind of way about it. Who knows.

A few more educated black women writers on staff would be great though.
