Mixed-ish is a kooky, sweet and funny coming of age story.

I just finished watching the second and final season. I delayed watching the last few episodes because I really didn’t want it to end. But I’d recently learned my lesson of putting off endings too long; first when the delightful “Doing the Most with Phoebe Robinson” disappeared from Xfinity on Demand before I finished the final two episodes. Then when I tried to mindlessly watch the rest of “Filthy Rich” and Hulu only showed a trailer. The audacity!

So, even though it physically pained me to finish the last episode of Mixed-ish, I did. And I loved this show from beginning to end. I’ll probably watch it a couple more times. It made me laugh so hard and it has a lot of heart. The characters are a lot of fun, interesting, and unique. The group plays well together and it is just a simple joy to watch.
