This 'Smart Guy' is funny!
3 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like this show a lot! it's funny, clever,and original. Tahj Mowry makes an excellent performance as the ten-year old whiz kid, T.J Henderson, skipping elementry school to go to high school. With John Marshall Jones as Floyd, the supportive single father, Jason Weaver as Marcus, T.J's older brother who is not a whiz at school, but a whiz on women, Essence Atkins as Evette, the clever older sister, and Mo Tibbs, Marcus's care free, clueless friend who practically lives at the Henderson house. i think this show is one of the most original T.V. shows on T.V.

I give this show 9.4/10 stars for being an awesome show!
