Malibu Country (2012–2013)
User ReviewsReview this title
It is easy to watch, funny, a granny with a bite but also funny actress from other series/movies.
Just take it easy, it is lightweight entertainment, it can be a 'whoop' mixing old USA traditions Southern style and the free south California ways.
I liked it. I do not give it a ten, a 2 or a 5, i give it a go. Go on, make a few more! The cast is not yet fully glued to gether but it has promise. The lines/tekst will make or brake, the setting/idea is solid.
Wish i could be on the think tank/writers for this show! :-)
Under this premise, either RM is trying to pass herself off as a 30-something, or she "put her career on hold" in her mid-40's when she had her children. Either way, the premise is too far fetched.
Even if you can put aside the fact that a 60-yr-old is trying to pass herself off as a mother of 15 and 16 year olds, the writing is really bad. Reba (the character) seems to have never met a gay person in her life (but she's okay with it, as any "hip" person would be).
The whole thing is an old, tired regurgitation of the 90's and just does not work. Too bad for Lilly and Sara as they are great, but the rest of the show is just rotten, making it all stink.
I've watched the show and it's good. I agree that right now it's new and some jokes fall flat others do not. But Lily, Jai and Reba are very good and so are the kids. I guess I could do without the neighbor but other than that, I'll keep watching. I really like Jai, he adds some zest to some scenes and the fact that he is of Latin heritage is a plus for me.
