Modern Day Lucy
20 May 2005 | by robert-carroll-jrSee all my reviews

I LOVE THIS SHOW! I have seen every episode and I laugh out loud each and every time I do. The show is sheer entertaining! It is not meant to give any meaning, it is just what it is, a side-splitting comedy. The characters are very believable and the guest stars are stupendous! I LOVE Mo'Nique as Nikki Parker and Countess Vaughn as her dim-witted daughter who can sang, Kim Parker (you will fall in love each and every time you see them) they are hilarious and a GREAT team of actors! HEYYY!! Dang Mama! The shows originality is overwhelming (Definately a CLASSIC)! I would love to own ALL seasons! The sets are colorful, the plots are simple and hysterical! I would love to see the series come back! They should do an encore, like they have done for the Brady Bunch and Eight is Enough!
