First Two Seasons are Good,Gets Weaker and Less Funny as it Continues,
1 April 2010 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Cleveland Show is a decent television series with some good episodes,a few great episodes and a fair share of very weak episodes.The show started off very promising,I really enjoy the first season,the second season was pretty good,it dropped down in comedy largely in the that's season,and the fourth season was painfully unfunny and filled with very weak storyline's.I think the show didn't have great material to work with,Cleveland was not the right character to give a spin off to,I think of so many Family Guy characters that could have a much better series,I think the writers are aware of this because they changed Cleveland's personality to a huge degree,I think at times he was just very unlikeable,and he isn't the only character that I found unlikeable (Donna,Holt,Cleveland Jr,etc.).My favourite characters on the show were definitely Rallo and Tim (the only character voiced by Seth MacFarlane),Rallo was usually the side story character and I normally enjoyed his role in an episode more than the actual plot.The shows best moments is when they make a reference to Family Guy,when a character from the show makes a cameo or Cleveland mentions a moment from the show,but that wasn't a good sign that does moments are the ones I loved the most,because it shows that I had to be reminded of a different show to enjoy.I watched to Cleveland Show because I watch anything they Seth MacFarlanes involved with,but the show is very hit and miss and it's watchable if there's nothing else on,but not worth buying a box set or anything like that.

Cleveland leaves Quahog with his son Cleveland Jr. to star a new life with in his hometown Stoolbend,where he meets Donna Tubbs,an old love interest of his.They get married,but now Cleveland is forced to deal with her disrespectful children,Roberta and Rallo.

Best Episode: Die Semi-Hard Worst Episode: Dancing with the Stools
