Black-ish's new spin-off, Grown-ish, which follows Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) to college, premiered back-to-back episodes Wednesday night, and it was hip, relevant and full of drug use.
The premiere episode, which aired on Freeform, told the backstories of Zoey's new classmates, and soon-to-be best friends, whom she compared to her own "Breakfast Club." However, things got real in the second episode, titled "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe," when Zoey was exposed to all sorts of drugs at her first college parties. In fact, even Zoey gave in to popping adderall to help her with her schoolwork, and one Twitter user couldn't help but make the connection to the classic Saved By the Bell episode.
Although, most fans seemed to love the realness. One person tweeted,
"She’s been in college all syllabus week and she’s already poppin addy. Can’t imagine what midterm and finals SNZ looks like."
While another wrote,
"Blackness, exciting characters, weed, alcohol, lit college parties, multicultural friends, diverse cast, real conversations, with a sprinkle of wokeness and the comedy Oh yeah #grownish is that show"
