    Deserved. A lot more funnier than Jamie Foxx’s Netflix show.

    This show is hilarious! I wasn’t sure if I would like it after realizing that it is full of stereotypes but it is irresistibly funny, couldn’t stop laughing and couldn’t stop watching. I’m a homebody when I’m off from work so I started and finished the whole season in one weekend. So glad they are bringing it back, would’ve been upset if not for all of the stated reasons and because Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger.

    Forgot to mention that the entire cast is great, from the leads and supporters to just occasional appearers, they carefully casted every role including the children. Everyone contributes laughs in their own way. The interaction between Wanda Sykes and Mike Epps is just plain funny and Kim is the perfect mediator…Kim has another hit on her hands!

    The funniest show on Netflix. The only sitcom I can rewatch on Netflix. It’s like getting a daily dose of the golden girls
