Excellent show, indeed!!
22 October 2006 | by bigmarkiestyleSee all my reviews

This was one of the best television shows on the air!! How nice and beautiful it was to see a TV show that showed three generations of Black males being supportive of and loving one another. Also, here was a show that was not afraid to show those males being affectionate with one another. Gregory Hines was incredibly charming and funny and Brandon Hammond was equally fine. I sincerely hope this show comes to DVD soon. It is well worth revisiting again and again. It is too bad that CBS only saw fit to give us one season of this beautifully done show, but I will be most forgiving if I can at least buy it on DVD (hint, hint!)!!!!
