A Wonderful Family Show
20 October 2009 | by divadiahannSee all my reviews

I was so glad to see The Gregory Hines Show on CBS for several reasons. One principle reason was watching a handsome, intelligent but witty widowed father raising his equally handsome and witty young son. I also loved the interaction between the 3-generations of family-grandfather/father/son of which Ben's brother was added to enhance the humor and story lines. Another principle reason I enjoyed the show so much was seeing the genuine love from the male standpoint in an African American family setting. Ben and his son Matty often spoke of the deceased wife/mother in many tender ways and their father/son relationship was heart-warming. Even the tough-love of Ben and Carl's father was laced with the unspoken love and concern for his now grown-up sons. I also liked how in the closing episode Gregory's outstanding dancing was featured in a surreal-dream type way. I sincerely hope that CBS or its syndication affiliate will release this show on DVD-I will definitely add this show to my collection.
