Storyline

Considered by many to be CBS' answer to the "Cosby Show", Charlie & Co. followed the Richmond family, headed by dad Charlie, played by funny-man Flip Wilson a blue-collar worker and his wife, Diana, played by Gladys Knight. Though it was seen as more realistic and relateable than the upscale Huxtable family, Charlie & Co. was not able to latch on to the public the way Cosby had. Written by <journal101@yahoo.com>

Cruel and inhumane punishment.
15 January 2002 | by 14jadeSee all my reviews

I try not to be too harsh, but this is one time I must make an exception. This show has to be one of the most horrific I can ever remember. I mean, I actually felt physical pain from the one episode I watched. Even then, I didn't make it though the entire 30 minutes. I truly feel sorry for the actors who were cast for this Titanic, especially the late comedian Flip Wilson and famed singer Gladys Knight. The actors, for the most part, were able to move on, thank God. They shouldn't have to be held accountable, and at least they got a check or two for their humiliation. I blame the writers, who are conveniently left off of the credits. I know it was quite embarrassing, but they could at least admit to their mistake. For those of you who can't remember, this was CBS' answer to `The Cosby Show,' and a sorry one it was. I can still hear the rip from `The Cosby Show' cloth in 2002.

I'm sure this show might catch the interest of some die-hard Steve Urkel fans, but don't worry about catching any reruns soon. It won't even make the cut on BET.
