I really wanted to "love that girl." I used to like Tatyana Ali on the Fresh Prince, and when I found out it was going to be co-produced by Martin, I thought that surely it would be funny.
I was so wrong.
While Tatyana is funny, she is not hilarious enough to carry the whole show as a comedy. She would need a phenomenal supporting cast to provide a lot of the comedy, which unfortunately, she doesn't have. The characters are frankly, not funny. They're also flat. I don't know much about them and I really don't care to. The gay guy friends are over-the- top stereotypical and more annoying than funny. The "comedian" out of work brother, the ghetto receptionist and the dad all are uninteresting. Worst of all, the girl who plays her best friend. Eeesh...maybe she's a great actress in other roles, but the character/writing isn't working for her.
I'm putting a lot of focus on bad casting choices but I think the writing is awful too. Can't they take a cue from other classic shows on TVone like "Martin" and "Living Single" to understand the kind of writing and characters work for a show? The only way I see this show making it past season 1 is if "that girl" makes some new friends, kicks her brother out and changes jobs...
Also, the introduction of the show bothers me. What is up with the 60's theme music and flowers. Is Tatyana Ali's character a hippie? Nope. Does the show take place in the 60's? Nope. Imagine staring "Martin" with a 1950's Doo-Wop song... it just doesn't make sense!
