I wanted to actually give it a 1/10, but I decided to add an extra point because Tyler went out of his way to make sure that all of his "sexy" people look really good! Also, I have never laughed so hard at unintentionally funny scenes in all of my TV life. Between the poor acting, poor writing, 1970's camera work, and numerous awkward pauses between beats, it's just too much FAIL to readily recommend.
I like Tyler Perry. Let's be clear on that. BUT, this show is terrible. But, if you like to laugh, you should do fine watching this!
There is one redeeming quality that I can say that would be a plus for the show though, the actors really try their best. You can see where they may lack professional experience, but you can also see the sincerity. I truly and honestly think that Tyler should hire an independent team of writers for this show. Television is not the Stage. The beats and flow operate totally different from a live stage play. Just like film and television have a distinct contrast, his shows need to feel less like live stage plays. I do hope he meets success though, because I like Tyler Perry as a person. This show, not so much.
