Overall the whole show is hilarious on many levels and I love it! Rating **** out of ****. (Tied for Second Favorite Show)
My Rating: 11 out of 10! (above average show)
I am looking for the "Martin" series on DVD. Does anyone know when it will be coming out or if it is out already? Please help.
Martin was the funniest, sitcom in the 90's. I would love to take a look at "Hustle Man", "Brother Man, "Dragon Fly Jones", "Shanana" and "Jerome" again. Please somebody let me know.
Remember, "you killed my mama Bird, Gina" God that was classic. I know there are a lot of Martin fans out there. Let's not forget, "Don't ya know no good." I wish there was more shows on like that again, I am tired of reality shows.
All the characters were very good and I so sorry to see this show end. You can never recapture laugher like that.
All the episodes were funny. I especially loved the one when Martin thought he was being hen-pecked and Gina had the bat to him. I also loved the episode when he went on the hunger strike.
I wonder what the writers of the show are doing now and if they will write something as similar.
Starring: Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, and Tichina Arnold.
Martin Lawrence stars in one of the most hysterical television show ever. The jokes never stop and old jokes are still funny. For instance, Martin and Pam's constant ripping on each other. It was still funny to the last episode. Another instance is when Tommy keeps talking about his job, when he is unemployed. It may not seem funny but when you see it, you'll laugh you're heart out. Why this show was cancelled boggles my mind, and I think it was a completely stupid move to do that. Catch this show on the WB at 10:30 Central Time.
Rank: Tied for 2nd (with "Everybody Loves Raymond")
Martin Lawrence is NOT funny, and that includes all his movies! He is a wannabe "Eddie Murphey" and plays at least two roles in the same production. Eddie could do it, and he was funny, but Martin is almost as a person on dope! He is just saying all kind of stuff that doesn't make sense, and he doesn't concentrate to play his roles seriously! He just jumps around as a kangaroo and talks as if he had smoked some dope or something.
this "show" is NOT in the league as: "Married...With Children" "Friends" "Two guys, a girl and a pizza place" or "Frasier" These shows is funny, and they are not just a lame excuse for some b-movie stars own show. "Martin" is just a show for a stupid and awful actor, who (as anyone else) just makes a show because he had made two movies.
The last thing Martin Lawrence needs to do, its make a CD. Then he is just as: Will Smith, Hillary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, Kirstie Alley, etc etc. Just because they have made one (or two) great movies (or appeared in one), then they have to make their own show and music to become stars as Cameron Diaz or Orlando Bloom.
These "wannabe stars" is just some frustrated young jerks, who tries every thing to become famous. i hate it, and that is what i think "Martin" is a part of! if i should rate this show from 1 to 10 then ill give it: Awful
Unfortunately the show started to lose its hmf after martin was accused of sexual harassment. The last few episodes were just disappointing and was set as more for children audience than adult audience.
"Martin" basically focused on a radio DJ and the comic misadventures he has with his friends. If you already guessed, hilarity ensues from all this. It's real hard to think of anything I didn't like about the show because the show was that good. Everybody on the show, I felt, had very good chemistry with each other and the writing was very strong also. Since "Martin" was popular among many audiences, most notably African-American, I'm surprised this series is not on DVD yet.
Like the same with my one sentence review, "Martin" was on the air back when the Fox channel was still a good network. Now, in my opinion, Fox shows crappy television shows now. We need more shows like "Martin" on that channel.
Whenever an old episode of "Martin" is on the air, try watching it. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
