    Blunt and funny and heartwarming, a perfectly calibrated mix of bawdy silliness and sincere feeling. And Morgan is excellent on it, revealing range and nuance he’s not had the chance to show us before.

    Very good yet not yet great, the rest of the series gets a lot right early on without making a move to the top tier of television. That may nag at some who come in with ultra-high expectations, but Haddish and Morgan are marvelous, and The Last O.G. could easily coast for six seasons on their charm alone.

    The Last O.G. can’t help being a little sad because Morgan is a little sad, and it can’t help being a little funny because Morgan is Morgan. He so much as breathes and you laugh.

    For all of its broad fish-out-of-Brooklyn slapstick, this is awfully sweet. ... Morgan is a joy. Welcome back! [2 Apr - 15 Apr 2018, p.11]

    As far as it goes, The Last O.G. is a mildly enjoyable half-hour. Its first six episodes are packed too heavily with plot and too easily move past the real attraction, which is watching Tray wander around Brooklyn in a state of cultural bewilderment.

    Showcasing Morgan in a leading role might be the most promotable aspect of this series. And while fans will surely be cheered to see him looking so fully recuperated, his character as presented is, alas, the weakest link in The Last O.G.

    It's an interesting comedy, and one prepared to take a few big swings. It just isn't especially funny or consistent, and this isn't a "Oh, we're going for arty over humorous" FX or Amazon-style comedy. It wants to be broad and riotous without real success, only to find its value someplace more somber.

    This show is fresh. The writing and comic pacing is terrific. The comic skills of Tiffany Haddish are under used but Tracy Morgan isThis show is fresh. The writing and comic pacing is terrific. The comic skills of Tiffany Haddish are under used but Tracy Morgan is fantastic. I have seen a few reviews written by professional writers that attempt to analyse every word, joke, plot twist. I wonder if these writers have been watching much comedy tv lately. Alot of situation comedy is weak. This program is watchable, the characters are likable, the plot lines are believable and that is all I require form a situation comedy. Go Tracy, go Tiffany. Got get it. Expand
