8 Must Watch Red Table Talk Episodes from Season One

There’s a relatively new show in town that is gaining lots of buzz, and I can guarantee you, this show is going to be the next big thing on your screens in a couple of years.

Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk is one of the realest talk shows streaming today. Together with the help of her 17-year-old daughter, Willow, and her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, Pinkett Smith tackles uncomfortable subjects—even for a modern audience surrounded by seemingly constant raw and unfiltered moments from sex, love, to family while also interviewing celebrities.It’s a no hold barred conversation, literally around a table covering different topics that relate to our daily lives.

Since its premiere in 2018, Red Table Talk has earned millions of views on Facebook, an Emmy nomination for Best Outstanding Informative Talk Show, along with an NAACP Image Award, officially marking its cultural significance.

Part of the show’s charm, notes the show producer while on an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, is that instead of a bunch of unfamiliar women cast and screen-tested together, Red Table invites viewers into the home of the notoriously private Smiths—and into their most intimate dialogues, of which internal reflection is a cornerstone. “It’s more like an extension of our conversations when we’re alone and just how we are with each other naturally,” says Willow.

In a positive review, USA Today‘s Maeve McDermott praised the series for its “insightful guests, no-holds-barred topics and Smith’s magnetic hosting presence” and favorably compared to other television series saying, “Unlike the web of other celebrity TV shows featuring manufactured family drama and few moments of actual clarity, though, the revealing conversations on Red Table Talk have authentic, difficult lessons at their center.

If you haven’t caught on to the show, worry not. Sit back and relax and we share 7 must watch episodes from the show.
