Between "Roc" and "King of Queens", the movie remake of the classic sitcom, "The Honeymooners" was totally unecessary.
Charles S. Dutton caputes the spirit of a modern day "Ralph Kramden" with his thrifty qualities; holding on tight to his money, constant arguements with his family ... Though the love between "Roc" and "Eleanor" is displayed more often and in depth than "Ralph & Alice".
Like with Bill Cosby's sitcoms, "Roc" manages to take issues like homelessness, drugs, unemployment and wrapped them up in a package that allows you to get lost in the episode. Also, we get see "fogotten" personalities like Kim Fields, Richard Roundtree and Oscar Brown Jr. in delightful guest starring roles.
This show goes in the same category as: Frank's Place, The Cosby Show, Cosby, A Different World, Linc's and South Central.
