Doesn't stand up to the test of time

Author: Gram from England
15 May 2008

As an after school show I'm sure this was successful but out of context (13 years later) it doesn't offer anything. I'm a huge fan of the wayans bro's but without a good set of writers they don't have the same independence as Will Smith in fresh prince. I like John Witherspoon (Pops) too and think he made a huge contribution to the success of boondocks but after seeing him take off in that it really makes you see that he was a bit flat on this.

Maybe I'm being silly in trying to critique an after school show as a comedy but its certain that the actors in this show are suffering from a lack of something that they all found later on in other projects.

Crazy as a loon in one silly sitcom

Author: raysond from Chapel Hill, North Carolina
25 April 2002

Cool? Hilarious? Crazy as a loon? You bet. The Wayans Brothers Show was all that and a whole lot more. For the five seasons that it ran on the WB,you'll never what those two were up to conjure up next. You can tell that Shawn was the cool on and in control,and Marlon was the total nut. Their dad? He was something. After they got caught and stuff,their dad would talk to them,and the next get out that big 70's belt from his pants saying,"violence? I'll show you violence!" as the two ran for the nearest exit. It was funny,but it was one crazy sitcom that had me laughing out loud and then some.

Better than the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Author: ECHO-16 from France
17 May 1999

I just saw 5 episodes. But it's the best sitcom I have ever seen. It's even better than the first episodes of the fresh prince of Bel-air. If you like Hip Hop and its culture and you like to laugh at it, this show is for you!

This is great show.

Author: Walter Clark from Saint Petersburg, FL
24 July 1999

The Wayans Brothers is my favorite show. Marlon Wayans is my favorite actor. Need I say more. This show has got to be the funniest I've ever seen. Well, a tie with "In Living Color," which Marlon was also in. The Wayans really know how to entertain people and that's what makes the Wayans brother so great. Marlon will do anything and Shawn has his own style of humor. I give this how a 10.

Marlen gets dumber every year.

Author: Peter Terry from US
7 April 1999

A good show to watch. Though the newer episodes don't make me laugh any more, they always entertain me. "The Wayans Bros" have always been fun to watch. And the show gets more interesting every year. I hope this show runs for as long as Shawn and Marlen are young. Also, I hope Marlen starts acting more like he used to. I give this show a 9 out of 10. Watch it on the "WB" television network!
