I was caught off guard, wasn't expecting a show that had prime time potential!
6 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

That was unexpected, right from the beginning I was preparing for that "cringe feeling" you get when a shows pilot starts to fail, but boy was I surprised. I love the shows dialogue and how they use it as its main premise, I could even see the show kick it up a notch on its "edge factor" and it wouldn't be a problem as long as they stay within the shows formula. To have conversations on highly controversial subjects in a show that's heavy on clichés and making it work is a fun watch. An example of how these writers insert these sensitive topics like "the war on terrorism" convincingly into the dialogue, is to have a character in a conversation completely "go off topic", because they desperately wanted to get their point across. That topic is then quickly debated from both sides with arguments that's been recycled from popular media only to have the conversation re-directed back to its original topic leaving us with no conclusion as the show keeps moving forward all in a clever comedic way. This formula is repeated but works because it does something that we in the real world don't do and that's to openly talk about the issues that going on locally and internationally, it's also what makes the show so entertaining, and as a person who grew up watching "in living color", it sure was a treat to see David Alan Grier on here playing as the main characters father, hopefully he stays on. As long as they never pick a side and they remain unbiased, this show might have the potential to become a long running sitcom.
