Easy to Watch and Funny
3 October 2019 | by sandbeeSee all my reviews

I like this new series. I've been a fan of Billy Gardell for awhile now. M & M just cemented his line timing and sense of humor for me. It's got some good lines, some good jokes and very good timing on delivery of those jokes. I'm undecided on the aunt and uncle yet but I like Abishola and her son both. I even like her co-workers that she talks to about some of the Bob/husband/life things. Vernee Watson-Johnson is one of her co-workers and I've liked her since I saw her in Welcome Back Kotter. There are some strong actors in this show with good scripting and funny, endearing lines. The characters have a real quality about them and the actors are good enough to get you involved in the show.
