This needs to be cancelled at once.
6 June 2007 | by exoticElephantSee all my reviews

I only gave it a one because there was nothing lower to give. I have yet to laugh and watched both episodes. What would inspire a Black man today to create Bafoonery at its Worst. The direction was absolutely horrible. The writing is worst than the directing. The acting is worst than the directing and writing. Why Keke Palmer would ever add her name to this cast is very confusing in my opinion. How do you go from Angela Bassett and Lawrence Fishburne to this crap? Why are the jokes so horrible and out of sync? Things are repeated as if the viewer cares if they heard it the first time. The best part of the show is the little girl. The father looks younger than the son. Bamboozled. I felt Bamboozled when I watched it. TBS actually picked this up? American TV is soon to be extinct if shows like this can get 100 episodes. Please STOP the madness. Trash this show while you can. The people who gave this show 10 stars must be delusional. I have never seen acting so staged and fake. The actors have no real emotion at all. Allen Payne, I truly do not know what to say except for ESCAPe from this deal while you still have your pride. Garbage.
