Storyline

Stand-up comedian Rodney Carrington would like to take you to the middle of real, everyday America. In the tradition of "Home Improvement" and "Roseanne" comes a down-to-earth guy's guy who, with his own heartland intelligence, speaks the truth. Rodney is quitting or getting fired from jobs he hates while doing stand-up in dive bars at night. He may not have much money, but he still finds excitement. He's not afraid to walk into a department store naked on a dare. Not afraid to take credit for flowers someone else sent his wife. Not afraid to get between his fighting boys. Not afraid to tell his wife he wants to make stand-up his career. He's going to figure out how to find happiness while being the best damn husband, dad and son he knows how to be.

Family Fare
15 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the other comments and the only way I can account for the variance in viewpoint is the differences in expectancy. I had not seen the comedian before to the best of my knowledge so this was just another sitcom with unknown faces to me. It was good family entertainment, story-telling, based on something one could expect to occur in the home. I really appreciate not having to make excuses for poor behavior of actors on screen (and off) to children; there was no risqué content. I hope that wasn't just this one episode by a fluke, I hope there's more like this to come. We need decency back for (at least) family viewing, even if it means some people will call it flat and others call it predictable. I'm old enough to remember Ozzie and Harriet, and by today's sophisticated and earthy world view Ozzie and Harriet would be slaughtered by commentary and then summarily canceled. In America our tastes have become more sophisticated, but that shouldn't be blindly taken as a good thing. Almost nobody blushes at anything any more, and it seems to take more shock and awe (even in family situations) to satiate our appetites. We're like the frog put in water with the temperature slowly raised to where it's boiling before we are aware (if we are ever aware). My opinion is that it's our loss (just like it's the frogs loss); our loss that we think this show is missing anything; what we need back is our appreciation for a simple story-line made up of genuine family situations. In the show I saw someone who looked how I think Mac Davis would have aged to this point in time (after all these years since his variety show). In IMDb Mac wasn't listed in the cast of Rodney, but when I checked under Mac's page he had guested on three episodes. IMDb is wonderful for answering questions that arise. Summary: We need decency back for (at least) family viewing, even if it means some people will call it flat and others call it predictable. Flat and predictable are an element in life, a good one that makes us feel secure, when someone plays that back at us on screen we should call it a good thing. The fastest of the thrill rides at Disneyland is partly appreciated because of its contrast to the other rides, a point we're losing about Disneyland, about stories, and life.
