Once famous football player must rent part of his house in order to support himself. A single mother and her two kids are the latest tenants. He also owns a sports clinic that he barely manages to run with a little help from his friends.
I saw this sitcom the other day on a local TV affiliate, and it's easy to understand why it only lasted three seasons.
This black family TV sitcom, starring Terry Crews and Essence Atkins as middle-class parents of two preteen children, just simply isn't funny at all. Although I liked Crews in his previous role as dad to the teen-aged Chris Rock in "Everybody Hates Chris" and think that Essence Atkins is a stunning black actress, the straight characters they portray as parents in this show are rather listless, and the two children are just as vapid and bland. With its tedious story lines, insipid characters, and overall lack of humor, you'll most likely find yourself reaching for your remote after about 10 minutes of viewing (if that long).
Just flat out dull.
