User Reviews

Bring on Season 2
27 August 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Leave it to Whoopi to toss the "P.C." guidelines out the window. The show is refreshing and drop dead funny. At times the humor is in your face, just as life can be. Can it be offensive? I don't think so. It's just refreshing to see and hear someone say what is on everyone's mind at the time.

The show basically points out that you can't take life too seriously.

The characters are all folks that we can identify with and may even know in passing in everyday life. The cast blends and works well off of each other. The chemistry for this ensemble works.

So tune in and enjoy the show.
