Yet another addition to Stupid Sitcoms >:(
Where to begin? Where to begin? First of all, George Lopez is playing a stereotypical, overprotective and completely oblivious husband and father; second of all George's mother is not only a foul mouth, sassy bitch (that'd be too nice), but she's also an unappreciative, unforgiving, and intolerable skank. Third, the daughter has no character of her own; she's just there to be the Meg Griffin of the show (ironic because I actually like Family Guy, for the most part), get bullied, get undermined, get in trouble for no good reason, you know those traits you'd find in characters that don't have a backbone. The son adds nothing to the plot of any episode, George's brother is just there to get tortured and Angie is just there to look pretty. If this show had a talking dog and an evil baby, it'd be a live action Family Guy done wrong. I like George Lopez as an actor, I think he's really funny, but this show doesn't do him justice, especially considering the fact that this was his idea of a sitcom. The jokes here don't make me want to laugh, they make me want to punch the person who told the joke in the face (including George himself). I don't recommend watching this show unless you think a skank like George's Mom is funny or you like to laugh at the misery of a victim of bullying and boarderline child abuse.moreless
The older you get, the more boring it is.
Just a few years ago, this was my favorite show. Now watching it, I can't understand why, it has its moments, and when it has those moments, god are they hilarious, but that's only 40 percent of the time, the 60 percent is spent with uninteresting plots, redundant jokes, and spotty acting
He's more than just another comedian.
Even though Nick has been doing bad lately, Nick@Nite is one of the best places to find comedy, containing classics such as the Nanny, and Family Matters. They also have great modern shows such as Everybody Hates Chris. This show is no exception. The show itself is about a man named George Lopez who lives his life with his wife, two kids, and his grandma. It does sound like one of those poor family sitcoms, but the thing that sets this show apart from is competitors is the fact on how original the dialogue and humor is. It feels very fresh, although somewhat hard to understand. The characters themselves are wonderfully developed in many ways possible, and while the plots are somewhat rehashes. it is somehow able to correlate with the character development, and the hilarious humor. The plots are kind of boring, but they are spiced in many ways possible. The characters are also great, and possibly my favorite is Benny. She is just downright funny, and gets the most laughs out of me (surprisingly). If there was one thing I didn't like about the show, it would be some of the dialogue. Some people do get it here and there, but for me, it's kind of hard to understand at times.
Despite this, George Lopez is one of the funniest shows out there. The humor is fresh and great, the characters are well-developed and all-rounded, and there is just a sense of originality, that sets it apart from other family sitcoms. If want to kill time, George Lopez is one of the best ways to serve you entertainment.
Presentation: 9/10 Plot does seem boring, but the original characters bring the score out.
Characters: 10/10 The characters are really funny, but at the same time, develop through out the show.
Voice: 10/10 Dialogue is perfectly spelled out, and all the scripts feel refreshing.
Entertainment: 9/10 Jokes can be a little confusing at times, but most of the time, it's just downright hilarious.
Lasting Appeal: 9.5/10 If you are looking for some good family sitcoms, George Lopez should probably be the first place to start at.
FINAL SCORE: 9.5/10 Incrediblemoreless
A very funny show that still shows a strong family bond.
George Lopez is one of my all time favorite sitcoms. It's about an airplane parts factory manager named George Lopez, who had a horrible childhood because of his drunken mother Benny Lopez, which makes raising his children, Carmen, his eldest child and spoiled brat, and Max, a dyslexic little boy, somewhat challenging.
A large portion of the humor of this show comes from Benny, who is, as Angie described, "the woman responsible for everything that's wrong with I swear this show would lose a lot of humor without Benny and George's constant bickering. And yet deep down, Benny does love her whole family.moreless
One of my favorites:)
Oh man i love this show and when i got into it thats when i found out it was cancelled:(.So this show is about a factory worker named George Lopez with an evil mom a wife and rebellous children and he tries to juggle his life. This show is just plain HILAROUS!!!!! He tries to handle his mother named Benny who abused him as a child and can be a smart mouth at times:P. His wife is very communitive and talkitive and sensitve at times with the childeren running aroun thinking they can do what ever they want:)
Anyway i love this show and sorry about this review im not good at making reviews:pmoreless
Overall a pretty good show
I like this show. It's pretty funny and for the most part the characters were hilarious and likeable. I also like the serious points of the show. There are some lessons you could learn from some of the episodes. The general theme of the show was a bit generic, though. It was kind of like the other family sitcoms on TV. Also, I really think Carmen got really irritating and annoying after the second or third season. Come to think of it, she was always annoying, but moreso after this point. She always had some new problem that she would be crying about every single episode. Most of the problems she had were typical teenage drama. She was a gigantic drama queen and a total brat and I used to hate when some of the episodes were centered around her. What a freaking spoiled ungrateful brat she was..I was so happy when she finally left for college..
Another thing I didn't really like was when they would continually mention how Manny, Georges father, walked out on him and his mom when he was 2. They mentioned it in almost every episode, it was pretty redundant and I kinda felt like enough was enough already. And I know that George and Benny's relationship is supposed to be "humorous" but I kind of felt like after awhile Benny was overdoing it and she was kind of crossing the line with George. I mean, he was her son, she needed to at least show some respect...
Overall, I think this show is great. My favorite characters are Max, Ernie, and George. They are probably the funniest characters on the show.moreless
