Demand more from your sitcom writers, and actors/actresses
31 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only reason I watched this show, is because they replaced a great show (American Dad) with this highly predictable comedy that isn't funny, and I keep hoping that American Dad will one day find its place back in the only line up on television that I truly watch. This show makes no sense. Why do these characters who are just recently divorced want to jump back in to the dating game, all the while demonstrating that they haven't learned from the their last failed relationships. Why didn't they try to just work it out with their previous spouses? Oh I know because they are all looking for the so called "THE ONE". It seems to me With the exception of the one guy Jack "Gator" Gately (I really don't know any of these actors/actresses, not from other shows or any place) who's girl left him because she's shallow and was cheating, no one else gave a strong argument for their splits. All the characters in this show are shallow, their dating choices are based sole on looks. The spouses that they had before were all hot. The women in this show is supposedly suppose to be intelligent because she can always out wit the guys, in insults and problem solving, but it's the looks and money that fuels her dating interest, it fuels all of their motivation for dating someone. I understand that we are attracted to people based on that, but do we all have to pretend that only hot people walk the earth turning our heads? People say "Oh it's just television". That is true, but when you can predict every punch line and situation about to happen, you have to ask your self, were is the evolution of the art of joke telling in sitcoms? And I feel very sorry for the actor Shaun Majumder. I feel he's doing what blacks had to do back when they were first allowed to play in films, steppin and fetching (you know all the yes masa and mammy talk). The whole accent thing is a put down, and a let down, and it shows me that America still believes that such degrading unfunny racial satire is still OK. Not saying you can't make fun of one for being different, that is the black art of comedy, nor am I saying it's racially biased and driven. What I am saying is that we need to be more intelligent and diverse when it comes to putting down those who are different. Stop recycling the same old racist jokes, stop recycling the same Idea that men are stupid and clueless around women, stop recycling the girl sidekick, who none of her male friends seems to be attracted to, until two seasons in. And I predict that if this show goes on for that long she and this gator guy will realize they were the "one" for each other all along, sounds like another miserable show I never watched but know that it's the bases for some of this, "Freinds".

Happy TV watching ya ll.
