This was a great sitcom...
11 October 2006 | by alboone2See all my reviews

I was an extra on this show for nearly every episode so I saw it from various perspectives. First, on the set, I found the principle actors, especially Gregory Hines, Bill Cobbs, Wendell Pierce, and Brandon Hammond to be very generous and personable people. Next, while watching the show, anyone could see each cast member enjoyed their role on this wholesome family show. I'd dare say that none of these actors would so much enjoy being involved the filth being called entertainment these days. We need better family sitcoms like The Gregory Hines Show on television today. If this show comes out on DVD, I'll be one of the first in line to purchase it. May Gregory rest in peace. He was a good and genuine man.
