Comedy like it oughta be
Think Arrested Development but with political satire. Think Blazing Saddles. B-Shop the series is quick, smart and damn funny - and its especially good to see a comedy that mostly features a cast of color delivering some jokes that require a little thought Any show that can move among comedic dirty talk, anger issues, abortion and urban female sexuality in a half hour is doing more than most comedies can pull of in three weeks of airing. The performances are great all around, particularly Omar Gooding and Toni Trucks who are both filling in difficult roles. With respect to Cube and Eve, those to make the characters their own. The show has style, and like The Simpons, it has enough jokes that on multiple viewings you can catch the ones you missed the first time around. With the movies winding down - THANKFULLY - the franchise is actually reinvigorated, and I can't wait to see where B- Shop the series is going.
