  • This is a good show that sure made me want t.v.

    8.5
    I feel that the crew of actors was a timeless classic. Clifton Davis was one of the greatest actors of its time. This show revolved around a barber shop. The mailman of the show was hilarious. It had me laugh out loud. I knew that it was going to be underappreciated as soon as it started. This portrayed african americans in a more mature and intellegent walk of life. I wish i could find a way to see reruns. If you were to watch this show you would surely be proud to say that THAT'S MY MAMA. It was all that. -NarutoShippudenmoreless
