A Good Cheap Laff
12 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As already noted, this show is a good time-waster and is better than most new experimental comedies.

Yes, the characterizations are all stereotypes but it's more slapstick in tone than mean. The characters are all idiots and they all seem to be in on the joke. The "counselor" is hilarious, kind of a washed up "Leisure Suit Larry" type.

For whatever reason, Oscar Nunez seems to be making a name for himself as a gay sitcom character - here and on "The Office".

The best episode so far was "Parent's Day". A theme that runs through every episode is kind of a "summer camp" vibe that contrasts sharply with the hardened ghetto hubris of Serenity and "Seabass". Basically the "inmates" in the house are all emasculated by the system and have to act like one big extended family.

I predict a one season run and then Halfway Home will join the vast stable of aborted Comedy Central also-ran comedies such as "Wanderlust" which occasionally run in blocks in the wee hours.
