A newly divorced working man-turned-entrepreneur balances the clashing culture of his all-American ex-wife, his over-bearing mother, his free-loading uncle, his cousin, his son and his school's "tough and sexy", assistant principal.
George Lopez as a stand-up comic has made me laugh harder than any other, ever. Mucus-expelling, gasping for breath stuff. His family sitcom "George Lopez" (2002-2007) was hilarious, terrifically written, had a great cast, and was largely ignored by Emmy.
Now we have "Lopez", a far superior and more snot-inducing successor, with no laugh track provided or needed. George is now looking for "relevance" as an older entertainer and Vegas escapee in a world of Los Angeles Twits. He's surrounded in his rented mansion by a new family of fringe-dwelling friends and ex-cons (led by Manolo, beautifully played by Anthony 'Citric' Campos), a creepy landlord, and George's manager, an earnest, WASPish woman-child (Hayley Huntley).
Quote of the series so far: "...there's no sliding scale of racism..."
Watch and repeat.
