Summary
The show bridged the gap between black and white audiences by at once exploiting stereotypes and then proving how ridiculous they could be, without being politically correct or preachy, and never without the aid of top-notch humor. The writing was spectacular, each of the performers were incredibly talented, and the chemistry between them showed. The first season of the comedy show that crossed every line with their crude humor and introduced a new generation of comedy talent
