  1. "Halfway House" is occasionally amusing but the characters are not well-formed.

    Watching real people undertake these artificial relationships can be entertaining; watching really, really fake people do it is just dispiriting.

    I agree that it was pretty funny and enjoyable but it simply wasnt well written and the plots around the show were rather generic and stupid. I think people still would enjoy though it they catch it on DVD, I did. Full Review »

    I watched this show a couple times and from what I have seen, it's nothing special. Comedy Central brings out some boring shows because they tend to be humorous for people who have horrible sense of humors. This show is just boring, idiotic, and not funny. Does every show like this have to throw in a elegant racist, enraged fat woman who likes food, a black man who steals stuff, a gay mexican, etc. Why? simply this show is horrible. Comedy Central really needs to jump the gap here and make some good TV shows. Full Review »

    The African Americans in this show over-act in an attempt to fit into the typical stereotype, but they come across as just annoying and unnatural. The premise for this show is clever, I just don't care for most of the cast. Full Review »
