Family Time on Bounce TV...What Did YOU Think?

MMMM...it's not the worst thing on TV.  I think that while HuxtableLand is a nice place to aim for in life, it may not be everyone's reality.  There have been many Black/AA sitcom families that were more diverse and FUNNY.

That's it, none of the main characters were funny.

Now, make the mother-in-law (Judy Elder) and her husband (Richard Gant?) regulars, dump the lesbo sis (don't know her name 'cause she's not funny) and I know the son is "royalty" as he is sired by the show's creator (Bentley Kyle Evans) and Yvette Denise Lee (Half & Half - which they should bring back, btw and Living Single) - however, he is only slightly funny because when he goes into that 'playa' mode that preteen boys like to do, he reminds me of my neighbor - and he's grown.  The little girl can just do a Judy Winslow by going upstairs and never being heard from again.


Now, as a woman, I have to get this out.  Clair Huxtable may have set the bar EXTREMELY high.  I mean, damn, she looked like older Halle, had a real career, 4/5 kids - and comedic timing.  The mama here...they do a good job of camouflaging her super voluptuous body but when it comes time for her to say something, she has to stick out her chesticles, backside or talk about how cute she is.  Someone once commented that she should have Megan Good's career...hmmm, idk about that. Her looks and timing are barely average. 

And this is prolly why they got only 6 episodes aired.

  1. Totally disagree with this review. I think Bentley Evans did it again with his writing and casting of this show. Omar Gooding and Angell Conwell have great chemistry together which makes for good laughs.
    If there was less negative and comparing to others especially regarding looks (who cares) the world would be a much better place. Sick of comments such as this. As opposed to support and suggest. We don't have that many shows on air as it is. But freedom of speech allows us all to have an opinion. Definitely don't agree with this writer.

  2. Thanks for the feedback!

    Angell Conwell, is that you? LOL

    Seriously, I could care less about looks and if you read closely, I do think there is hope for the show so I am supportive of anything that is positive.

    As far as opinions go, I didn't think Malcolm and Eddie was funny but it lasted much longer than I thought it would. I hope Bounce TV stick around for a while because IMO, they are better than BET and sometimes, TVOne. They may just want to do a spin on their first sitcom.

    Stop by and see us again, even if it's for the oldies!
