One of the greatest SitComs of all time
The Gregory Hines show was a fantastic family comedy. The automatic click between the actors was reminiscent of the way the Cosby Show actors clicked right off the bat.
Gregory Hines played a single father raising a bright son, with his brother and father "helping" along. His character's business as a book publisher added a lot of comedic interaction as well. All of the sub-characters were a perfect choice, from the restaurant owner to his business partner. It was a sitcom that crossed the racial lines. If it had been given a chance, it probably would have had a long run.
This had to be one of the best Sitcoms of all time. Its so sad that an executive had to make sure it didn't work out. I watched it every week, sometimes having to scan the TV guide, trying to find out what night they had it on "this week".
I know there was only one season of episodes, but I wish they would release them on DVD - I would buy them!
