Not quite quality TV

Wow! Where do I start. I REALLY want to like this show because I feel that black folk make the best comedians. I grew up watching Martin, Family Matters, Fresh Prince, Living Single, etc and I feel that those shows were pure comedy. You can't watch those shows and not laugh.

However, when I watch this, I can't help but notice the lack of realism. For one, race is clearly an important theme here. The white people on this show are usually weird in some way. With the exception of Juoquin, the others just seem a bit off. Then you have Leroy who has a personality where he Just Doesn't Quite Get It. His jokes are funny at times but his character is always loud, obnoxious, and foolish (like Curtis Payne). But then you have the two surgeons (Will & Sasha). A scenario that kinda reminds me of The Cosby Show. These two are very bold, wise, goal-oriented, and successful. Not only that but they could qualify for models. In other words, they're perfect. It's just hard for me to decipher this show as realistic.

The acting isn't exactly on point. There are times where it seems like they're not trying hard enough but then there's times where it seems like they're trying too hard.

The comedy of this show isn't always funny. I would actually admit to laughing about once every 10-15 times they play that little fake audience laughter.

I really want to like this show. I'll catch it every good once in awhile (mainly because Sasha so fine) and watch but I'm not too sure how anyone can really enjoy it 100%. I DO feel that it has potential but they have to change a lot of stuff.
