I was highly disappointed with this show. Everyone keeps saying this brings a "new" or "more appealing" light to African-Americans but I disagree. Shows like, My Wife & Kids, The Bernie Mac Show, Everybody Hates Chris and The Parkers have a positive influence even though they are re-runs. Even very old shows like Good Times and yes The Cosby Show had a positive light but also depicted REALITY!
The Reeds are unrelatable, not because they are classy but DRY. They ALL lack a sense of personality and I think that may be because of the writers. Still, I'm a fan of Tracey Ellis-Ross because of her old show Girlfriends but...it has got me thinking was her success based on her acting, the writing or her co-actors?
I recommend this show if you need a good nap though!!!
