the stereotype of stereotypes
27 September 2014 | by egeorge585See all my reviews

This show can easily be summed up: A dad hates being stereotyped by everyone in society and comes home at the end of the day and complains to his entire family that they don't act black enough.... but then he doesn't like people judging him for his skin color.... but wants his family to act black and that just goes in circles and circles and circles. Yes, that is the entire show.

It's sad really, gone are the days we can't have regular sitcoms featuring black families such as Family Matters, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The Bill Cosby Show, unless it is on BET. It almost seems as the civil rights movement has taken a step back within the last 20 years when it comes to television. Cause this isn't a sitcom, it's.... well, exactly what I described above. I understand what this show is trying to prove, and quite honestly the concept is very witty. It's just really horribly executed.

I personally think Anthony Anderson and his terrible character completely ruin what could've been a great show. I think the wife, grandpa and oldest son are really funny and bring a lot to the show but no doubt this will be canned and ABC will further continue to search to fill the fourth spot on their iconic Wednesday night sitcom lineup.

Update: I bothered watching the second episode of the show.... well I started the second episode at least. I'm not a prude and hate when TV shows talk about sex but this episode made it unbearably awkward and is an absolutely TERRIBLE choice for the second episode of any show. Again I have to say some of the other characters are likable but Anthony Andersons character really just ruins it for me. Plus he is the last person I want to see shirtless for an entire episode. Advertisements are saying that this is the #1 new comedy for the season, but I think it's just getting views because people are leaving on their tvs after Modern Family. This show is clearly getting horrible reviews.
