Attempts to Capture Entourage's Cool but Miserably Fails.
24 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

White Famous cheapens itself with cheap laugh lines and poorly written jokes. And it proudly sells out: There is a parade of celebrity cameos, and a parade of nameless females introduced butt-first.

White Famous wants to cast Jamie Foxx as a north star of stardom for young Floyd (Jay Pharoah). But his presence makes the whole show feel ego-strokish. Actually, everything here feels ego-strokish. Both episodes I've seen turn on the same essential plot point, Faced with the possibility of making a difficult decision to achieve success, the young star refuses to make the decision, and then achieves success anyway.

After two episodes I am done. I gave it a chance, but Jay Pharoah as the lead is too unlikable to follow and the constant infusion of celebrities just feels like pandering.
