Finally, BET offers its viewers something new and exciting.
6 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Reed Between The Lines"is one of the most refreshing and entertaining sitcoms to premier on BET in a very long time. Airing on Tuesday nights at 10pm, Tracee Ellis Ross and Malcolm Jamal Warner star as Carla and Alex Reed, both doctors (one a psychologist) the other (a college professor)as a loving, devoted married couple raising three children. Melissa DeSousa ("The Best Man") also stars as the pretty acupuncturist and friend of Carla Reed along with Anna Maria Horsford ("Friday" and "The Wayans Bros") as Ms. Helen, Dr. Reed's witty and sassy receptionist. Malcolm Jamal Warner and Tracee Ellis Ross have wonderful screen presence and chemistry that makes them stand out as a believable husband and wife couple. So far, the show touches on very important issues such as family values, discipline, love, commitment, etc. "RBTL" is a cool t.v. series that is unique and original in its own way. The writing is fairly decent and the acting is done well, especially by the adorable Reed children. Although there are no real surprises to the show, it is still definitely worth the watch. It is a fun show that depicts African American family life in a positive and genuine way and is also a step up from most of the ridiculous programming that's shown on BET. I rate this show an 8 out of 10.
