Awkwardly simple.
21 August 2008 | by petersaarloosSee all my reviews

"The Jamie Foxx Show", on first glance, isn't all that bad. Garcelle Beauvais is a beautiful actress, Jamie Foxx is a great actor with a very lively character and the rest of the characters sorta fade to the background.

It gets awkward when watching the second episode. It's too simple. The title song says it all; it's simple, my baby rocks my world. That's it. Are we supposed to just watch Garcelle flick around with Jamie, period? Now the character Jamie Foxx is great and although the concept isn't all that original any more after watching Fresh Prince of Bel Air, he does pull it off pretty well.

But do we really want to look at 20 minutes of Jamie Foxx saying funny things? Where's the plot? The interaction? It feels like a bad excuse for a sitcom and after the first episode you'll watch it with a frown on your face.
