Dave Johnson is just about the friendliest guy you could expect to meet. After moving his family from the Midwest to a tough Los Angeles neighborhood, it turns out not all of its residents appreciate his neighborly ways.
His new neighbor Calvin, in particular, is caught off-guard and worries that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block.
The great thing about the first two seasons of this show was how NON-political they were. They showed some cultural differences between back/white but none of it was politicized or really made about race to any great degree. This made the show enjoyable as a SITCOM. You know.. comedy.
But they've ruined this with the season 3 premier which was nothing BUT political and about race.
It's just moronic when television producers or stars think they need to "educate" the public on a sitcom. And it's even more telling when the sitcom contains a great many characters of color.. there's always a "moral" a "lesson" which I find more of a drag than anything. You really don't see these "morals" or "lessons" on sitcoms with a primarily white cast.
I'm not a fan of tuning in to be "preached" to, even if you are preaching a more favorable view in my opinion --- Basically I detest being told what I SHOULD think.. even if I already think it. I turn on my television, or tune to a channel for a show, to be entertained. Throwing entertainment out the window in favor of trying to "teach a moral lesson" to viewers is always a mistake. I'd watch this show for a decade if it remained entertaining and non-political as the first two seasons. But if the season 3 premier is any indicator of what season 3 will become.. I'll drop this show faster than anything - and they'll need to rename it to "Neighborhood-ish".
How about using a sitcom to ENTERTAIN rather than preach???
