Show Summary

"George Lopez," the hit family comedy starring popular standup comedian George Lopez, is on ABC. The series is from Bruce Helford, Deborah Oppenheimer and Robert Borden – all from ABC's long-running hit comedy series, "The Drew Carey Show" – and actress/producer Sandra Bullock ("Miss Congeniality," "Speed").

George Lopez is a guy who has made lemonade from lemons at every turn. Since he became plant manager at an L.A. airplane parts factory, he has handled a complicated and tumultuous job, a strong but challenging marriage, two rebellious children and a mother who can't keep track of her own lies about his childhood -- all with his sense of humor intact.

His affable compadre, Ernie (Valente Rodriguez, "Erin Brokovich"), still ribs George about his high-powered management position at the plant, but always lends a hand when George needs him. Ernie, who still lives with his mother and father, has learned some fathering skills of his own after foster-parenting a troubled twelve-year-old boy.

Though their marriage has had some close calls, George and his devoted wife, Angie (Constance Marie), still chose to renew their vows recently. Angie deals with his questionable decisions and freewheeling approach to parenthood and his mother's insensitive wisecracks with the patience of a saint -- and some guidance from her father, Vic (Emiliano Díez) -- but her drive to build a still unprofitable wedding-planning business has nearly driven their family to the poor house.

George's biggest test, both at work and home, is dealing with his tough and acerbic but loving mother, Benny (Belita Moreno, "Perfect Strangers"), while sifting through her vast assortment of lies about his family and childhood. After rediscovering and losing his father to kidney disease and learning of a long lost sister, George constantly wonders what, or who, is around the next corner.

After running away from home, being expelled from school and falling in love with a handsome jock, sixteen year-old Carmen's (Masiela Lusha) free-spirited, teenage rebellion has left her parents at a total loss about what to do next. Always the practical joker, thirteen-year-old Max clearly maintains the sense of humor he inherited from his father, but continues to struggle with dyslexia and constantly tests his parents' limits by being drawn toward the wrong crowd.

    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

    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
