A great fun show...
8 October 2009 | by Ryan_McLellandSee all my reviews

I guess I have an updated Ebonics guide...or whatever else the moron before me said - because this show is amazing. It's funny, good humored, and, yes, slapsticky. It's the fish out of water story of two rappers and a mom in a white community. Red and Meth love their house...but hate everyone who lives around them. They simply want to do what the want and make money.

The show was cancelled too quickly. It was NOT because of low ratings. Method Man and Redman hated how the show was edited and hated that a laugh track was added. They bashed the network over and over and over again causing Fox to shelve the show - even four episodes left.

I guess the show is not for everyone. If you don't 'get it' that I guess that's okay but not worth bashing it over. I find Mef and Doc hilarious, they have great chemistry, and yes they have their own slang - but they have it not just for the show but in their records, performances, and films. They are two guys having a great time in their careers.

With the release of Blackout 2 this year - one can only hope that perhaps this show will get a DVD release in the future. The lack of comments on IMDb does show me that perhaps it is not as popular as it should be. Do yourselves a favor - if you are fans of Method and Red then FIND THIS SHOW. You won't be disappointed.

The show also features Lahmard Tate (he was the "Dad" in Don't Be A Menace...), Anna Maria Horsford (well known for roles in Friday and Amen. She played Redman's mom in How High and plays Meth's mom here), Beth Littleford (The Daily Show), with awesome guest appearances by Brian Posehn, Kenny Loggins (who ROCKED it!), Chaka Khan, Carmen Elektra, and Elisa Neal.

It sure isn't Fresh Prince of Bel Air...thank God for that!
