I must admit that the premise of the show sounds weird. However, somehow it works. The cast is great with a few familiar faces.

I love this show. (And I am hard to please.) It's the perfect thing to watch at the end of a long day of work. Even though it's a situation comedy, they don't shy away from issues of race. I hope that they make another season.

CGReviewed in the United States on October 20, 2019
5.0 out of 5 starsFinally a Great show!
BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING CAST. THE HUMOR IS SPOT ON WITH THE VERY SERIOUS ISSUES IT BRINGS UP AT TIMES.
I HOPE THERES A 2ND SEASON BUT THESE DAYS ALL PEOPLE WANT TO SEE IS STUPID TEENAGER DRIVEN SEXUAL SHOWS.
ONE OF A KIND SHOW THOUGH....BUY IT IF YOU WANT TO WATCH SOMETHING THAT ACTUALLY HAS PURPOSE.
