Disgusting
13 December 2014 | by (Chesapeake, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This has to be the laziest show ever made, and that's saying something considering we live in a world with House of Payne and Meet the Browns. At least those shows have somewhat comprehensible plot lines and structured characters... the people on this show are pitiful in their attempts at anything remotely related to acting or storytelling. It makes me wonder how low all-black sitcoms will go in the future, because there's obviously no end in sight and no one behind the cameras saying "this is awful." Sitcoms with black families, such as Family Matters and The Cosby Show were lovable. They were also historic. The reason? They didn't ram it down your throat that the characters were black, and that's how it should be. Shows like The First Family are the exact opposite. They exist only to inform you that the people involved are black people, talking like black people, dealing with black people problems and doing black people things. The derogation of white characters is also something that needs to be addressed. How can a race of people who were repeatedly insulted in television and film turn around and do it to another race? That's hypocrisy on a whole new level. The fact that it's being done in this day and age and that it's allowed is mindblowing. If it were the other way around the show would have been off the air before it had a chance to post its ratings.

Garbage like this shouldn't be supported, by anyone. It's lazy, racist and unfunny.
