Horrifyingly bad. I made it to 10 minutes. Acting and writing were really crappy.

I caught a bit of this with my Mom- David Allen Greer was a sight for sore eyes! He’s not actually that much older than Jaime Fox, but they had him shave his head and grow his beard out (white) which aged him.

I'm just finishing up the pilot. I . . . wish it was better. Jamie Foxx and David Allen Grier are so talented, but I don't think this is it. The daughter was stilted, and Luenell's over-the-top-ness comes off as extremely creepy in the role of a counselor on a family show.


It's relying heavily on tropes, (resentful teen daughter, a "caught-in-bed" misunderstanding, aunt dodging bill collectors, workaholic dad makes things right by showing he listened to her favorite artist). Tropes aren't necessarily bad, but the show isn't doing anything interesting with them. The second show is about church/religions--Crooked Pastors and a Wacky Yoga Instructor show up, but I probably won't finish the ep.

I watched the entire season.  It's not long. 🙂 It gets better as it goes along.  However, I found the last episode on the subject of police actions toward black persons poorly done.  The tone was all over the place, and the resolution didn't work.  

The acting varies greatly throughout the show. Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier are great.  Some of the other actors are very wooden.  Sometimes it the stilted dialog.  Still, there are some real misses in the acting. 

The preacher episode makes no sense.  I can certainly understand the family going to church, but I cannot see them choosing a church with that preacher.
