Very funny show
2 December 2003 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I remember being a big fan of this show when it was on. The situation of the black guy and his two kids marrying the jewish mom and her daughter was great but it was made much better because the cast was very talented. I recall the daughter being very hot. Some episodes I remember were when younger brother Lester (who was becoming the show's main focus) stole some hip sneakers (called "Cranks" I believe), when Lester and the daughter Katie were spooked at a horror film at home, and when Lester becomes a racist after reading about Malcolm X. Another great one was the two brothers saving the daughter from a smooth-talking boyfriend. The one negative was Nancy Walker as the grandmother, she did very well but at times was a little too much to take. For the final season Cleavon Little replaced the original father, and as much of a big fan I am of Little, he looked rather sickly and seemed to have lost a lot of the fire. I'd love to have some of these episodes on tape again, if anyone has them, give me an email and maybe we can work out a trade or something.
