Truly one of the best shows ever. RIP Charlie Murphy.
14 December 2017 | by benjybronkSee all my reviews

This is honestly one of the funniest television shows I have ever seen and it's a shame it was on BET because if it was on any other channel it would have been a much bigger deal. If you are fans of any of these guys, do yourself a favor and watch this show immediately. The first episode isn't the greatest but sets up the character White Terry. I, like the two people who reviewed this previously, was not the biggest fan of the first episode and wasn't completely sold on the series after I saw the second either, it wasn't until the third episode that the show hit its stride and I literally laughed from start to finish. I then decided to stick with it till the end. I am so glad I did, episodes 3 -8 and after has been a Non-Stop laughfest that has made those 5 episodes, honestly 5 of my favorite episodes of Television ever (the remaining 2 will air this month)

In the first episode, they're acting was not the best but it quickly gets better and the one-liners and jokes will have you laughing from beginning to end, if you have a good sense of humor and aren't easily offended. If you want a good gauge of whether you should watch the show or not, put on episode 4 and just watch the first few minutes where Charlie Murphy and Cedric the Entertainer talk to a football player about free tickets. If you don't think what Charlie Murphy says about his sister is one of the funniest f****** things you've ever heard, you should just put something else on because you obviously don't like comedy. If you crack up after Charlie Murphy's line, you Should Skip back to episode 3 and get prepared to laugh until your stomach hurts. Eddie Griffin and George Lopez stealing that crippled kids weed spray is hilarious, at one point Eddie, trying to spray George in the with the weed spray (after he asked him to) and accidentally gets him in the eye, Eddie then goes to apologize and George Cuts him off, saying " f*** it it gets in your system quicker, "hit me again" and Eddie sprays the weed spray in his eye again. I didn't even know George Lopez smoked. Even if you aren't fans of these entertainers themselves you should give the show a chance because, funny is funny.

And for all the reviewers out there, could you guys please stop wanting to be the first first to review a show and just wait a couple episodes until giving your opinion? No shows can truly be judged from a pilot and doing so can effect if others will give it a chance or not. I wish IMDB would prevent people from reviewing a television show until at least the second episode airs.

RIP Charlie Murphy. Darkness.
