Originally posted by It's FalseI'm very torn on this. I'm happy that everyone's seemingly coming back, but...well...they're all 20 years older. Beyond the nostalgia appeal, I can't see this going over that well.
Looking back at the series, it's hard to deny how many careers that show launched. It made stars out of all of the Wayans, Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, Tommy Davidson, and even Jennifer Lopez.
It SHOULD have made a star out of David Alan Grier, but he just never caught on for some reason. I always thought he was a funny guy, but what do I know?
Grier was hilarious. Maya Angelou doing Butterfinger ads was genius.
However, In Living Color was really such a product of the 90's. Try watching it now. It doesn't hold up well.
in a wave of nostalgia I once bought the first two seasons on dvd. They were okay to watch. But the next one was just horrible. Worse than SNL ever did, it felt they just got stuck in doing the same things. Even Homey the Clown was not that funny. Just catchphrase upon catchphrase.
I know it's just three episodes in, but everyone just seems way too one-dimensional. Gordon is nothing but a seething combination of righteousness and disenchantment. Bullock is a caricature of a lousy cop.
