A good series but is missing something.
2 May 2000 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

This is a good series and it is sad to see it go next season but there is just something missing in the series. It's not as funny as The Cosby Show but the cast members on there this last season are grown up and we all liked seeing Cosby as "America's Favorite Dad" as the TBS Superstation says. I guess that's it or there's something else. I just don't laugh as much as I do at The Cosby Show. But all in all, it was a good series and it's sad to see it go. Perhaps Bill Cosby and Phyllicia Rashad will do more work together since they have made a great team on both series.
