Trivia

True Jackson's catchphrase "He said what now"?! comes from when Keke Palmer was told of the news of her casting. She couldn't believe it and told the producers "You said what now?!" - the producers loved it so much they made it her character's catchphrase. See more »

Not So Good Sitcom
9 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been reading the user comments and threads on the message board even though I have seen the show. I just found the posts amusing.

I saw the show last night and unfortunately for True Jackson and Nick...these posts have been more amusing than the show. It's just not funny. Not only because the jokes aren't any good but the jokes aren't delivered well either. The actor playing Jimmy tries the hardest to sell a joke but even then he oversells it. Not even because of his acting, mainly because the jokes are so bad that if you try to sell it you'll easily oversell it.

Literally everything about this show is weak. The writing, the directing, the acting, the blocking, the camera work, the editing.

Throughout the entire show I noticed how something was getting in the way of the storytelling and the jokes.

It's a bad show. AND it was actually funny because the actors could act and the lead had star power.

I didn't laugh at all because I didn't hear an actual joke.

Keke Palmer is not even good in this show. She is not a bad actress but she sucks in this show.

Another reason for this was poor writing. Punchlines weren't set up well enough. Silly gags were used to get a cheap laugh. They'd look for a joke in the wrong places.

That's not the only way the writing got to me last night.

Seriousness like that last point aside, the show is just plain bad. In every way.

And there isn't a good enough reason for me to watch this terrible show again unless I want to see how a show can be this bad.
