Started out decent then went bad
3 May 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Around the first 5-10 episodes of The Wayans Bros. were okay. Back then it was just Shawn, Marlon, Pops, and Lisa as the main characters. I enjoyed the show much more then. It was a little like Kenan and Kel only with better acting and less annoyingness. Then they went ahead and got rid of Lisa and bought in new characters. They also changed the diner, too. It also seems they didn't have a proper decision on the characters they want. For instance, they replaced Lou with Dee (and that sucks!). I know this show is from eight years ago but I've only just got down to watching it as Trouble have started showing it daily. They pull of a funny laugh-out-loud joke every now and then but the show to me was much better in the beginning.
