best show ever
3 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

oh my god, this was my favorite show!! i was so sad it was canceled. i watched it everyday after school! "Smart Guy" is the show of aten-year-old super-genius who copes with everything a high school student would typically overcome, such as peer pressure, school work, making friends, etc. Yvette is the Junior overachiever of the family, other than the main focused character, T.J. He is a very clever ten year old sophomore in high school. However, sometimes being a super-genius can give the kid a tough life. Marcus is T.J's only and older brother whose hobbies are writing music and, apparently, dating girls, for what I can remember. He has a passion and gift for writing and singing music, but has trouble focusing on schoolwork. Flloyd Henderson, the father, is a hardworking widower whose job is working with roofs, and works hard to keep a roof under his family's head and to keep his family well balanced and from falling apart. Morus(my personal favorite character) is a rather clueless, but has a dry sense of humor who never goes home and is the best friend of Marcus. My favorite episode, I must say, is the one where Yvette and Nina(her best friend) get a job at the local mall, but discover that their boss is racist by asking Nina to watch African-American people when they come into the store. It has a very meaningful message that a lot of people should be aware of, which is, simply, that racism is wrong. Overall, it was a fantastic show with dry humor(to my liking) and great characters that shouldn't have been canceled in the first place!
