A Very Unfunny Sitcom, 4 September 2014
Author: jayzeefilms from United States

Oh my god! What the hell is this crap? It's not funny, it's not memorable, it's just plain terrible and forgettable! I really like Eve Arden, but why, oh why did she have to star in such a horrible sitcom, she's not even funny! Neither of the actors were funny, memorable or likable, least of all Kaye Ballard, who looks like a Caucasian Ms. Swan! This is perhaps one of the worst and least famous television shows of the late 60s, early 70s! But luckily Richard Deacon, who was an awesome actor, saved the show when replacing the dude who looked like a fricken walrus in the second and thankfully last season! "I Love Lucy" is WAY better and A LOT more famous than this unlaughable obscure sitcom! I'm appalled that Desi Arnaz had to produce such as a terrible show! Ricky Ricardo, I am very disappointed in you. Desi Arnaz was cool but why did have to make such a bad show like "The Mothers-In-Law"? The dialogue is simple, the jokes are very hard to laugh at, the cast is horrible, and the theme song is also horrible and not-so-well known! I actually borrowed this from my mom when I first watched a few episodes from the DVD set to see if it's any good until...I hated it! I was like "What the hell was I watching?" If anything else, I think people should watch something like "The Lucy Show", which is one of my favorite shows, rather than this crap! Trust me, "The Mothers-In-Law" is not a show you wanna watch, it might make you feel strange!
