Release to DVD... please!
4 January 2007 | by (Oklahoma City) – See all my reviews

I have vague memories of "House of Buggin," but I remember it kept me in stitches throughout the whole show. What I do remember is what I believe was the pilot episode: a skit about a modern day Latino gang rivaling against The Jets from "West Side Story." I about lost my mind when John and the rest of "the Jets" came sneaking up, snapping their fingers and threatening to "rumble" with switch blades... the modern gang had guns.

Throughout the years, Fox has had a mean habit of cancelling really promising shows prematurely. I believe this show was one of the few that could have stood the test of time. It was NOT an "In Living Color" ripoff, anymore than "In Living Color" was a rip off of "Saturday Night Live," or "Saturday Night Live" was a rip off of "Laugh In," and etc. But perhaps, America was not ready for John being incapable of saying the word "regularly" and other Latino stereotypes that are now systematically mocked on "Mind of Mencia." Come on, Fox! Dig this one out of your vaults and put it on DVD already!
