This is a great show, and quite funny. I have learned that some people would consider this show as a "black Saturday Night Live", and I would agree. An endless number of sketches appear in this show. You've got Fire Marshal Bill (the crazy and dangerous fireman played by Jim Carrey), the Miss Benita sketches (the gossipy woman who saw her friends and said nice things to them, and then gave the home viewers dirty remarks about her friends, played by Kim Wayans), Homey the Clown with his famous line "Homey don't play that!" (Damon Wayans), Men On sketches (with David ALan Grier and Damon Wayans as the two gay men, giving their own opinions about certain things), Anton Jackson, the disgusting homeless guy played by Damon Wayans, Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, the elderly couple played by David Alan Grier and Kim Wayans, where those sketches started out with them chatting with a relative of theirs, and they start tossing insults at each other when their relatives leave. That is a funny one as well. I also love the Cousin Elsie sketches, with Kim Wayans. Cousin Elsie was so funny and did that gross gesture with her tongue constantly. (Be glad she did not try to give you a kiss like that!!!) I also love the sketches of Ugly Wanda, with Jamie Foxx. And, some others were perfect as well. During the first three seasons of the show (1990-93), the Wayans family members made this show quite funny with the many skits they did (from what I heard). But, by the show's 4th season (1993-94), things had changed. The theme song was given a new sound, the Wayans family had all left after the 3rd season (there were some new cast members of the show on the following season who were not quite famous yet), and the new sketches for the last season were not quite as funny as the ones the Wayans family did during the previous three seasons. Some of the familiar sketches stayed in, those being Fire Marshal Bill and Ugly Wanda and several others. But, after the last of the Wayans family left at the end of the 3rd season (I assume in late '93), the humor went out of it, and as I said, some of the newer sketches for the 4th season (1993-94) were not as funny and humorous, which had caused the ratings to go down and by late summer of '94, the show was discontinued. I believe that if the Wayans family had stayed on, the show probably would have kept its humor intact and might have continued on for several more seasons, but with the new cast members and sketches for the 1993-94 season, it went downhill. But think of it this way: The show may have had a short run, but a lot of fun sketches and humor had happened, and it's now available on DVD. I would just love to have this show on DVD sometime soon.
