Definitely underrated!, 18 December 2001

House of Buggin', staring John Leguizamo, was proof of the importance of advertisment. If you weren't living in NY, Miami, or LA most of your life, the show might have been alien to you. Even so, you couldn't help but smile at the spoof of Ricki Lake, featuring a verbal exchange between 'Fidel Castro' and 'Gen. Manuel Noriega.' I often looked forward to "Iggy & Loco's 'Totally True Urban Legends.'"

Other hilarious skits bore titles such as WomYn; Vogu-E; a skit where the show's actors enlist in "Big Brothers" who bully the kids they're assigned to, as well as a dramatic re-telling of a 'true' story where Rap music turns an All-American boy into a gun toting, brutal gangsta and a 'vice-versa' story where John Leguizamo's character is kidnapped by Hasidic Jews and converts (during the blindfolded/smell-test, he guessed everything that was put under his nose to be a pork food product--hehehe!). An entertaining slam of everything that has anything to do with inner-city life.

I have fond memories of this show, and am saddened by it's short life. Hopefully, reruns will one day grace Comedy Central.
