The Neighborhood was not as funny as I was expecting, but it had its moments, and it has the potential to get better. The actor playing Cedric the Entertainer's oldest son looks old enough to be his brother, so the casting could have been better in that respect. Frankly, it reminds me of a version of Blackish or The Jeffersons (George vs. the Willises), but I that's okay. And the show has gotten better.
If I was to make changes, I would have made the oldest son Calvin's son, and I would not have given Dave and Jemma a child. I'm sorry, but the kid is a really bad actor, even for kid standards, but I also do not think that children are entertaining in sitcoms at all. They're just a lazy grab at the cute factor which is never enough to make me watch anything.
