The principal cast members are appealing enough, providing perhaps some hope that the material will mature and measure up to them in future episodes. For now, though, it’s mostly hammer-over-the-head time.
Okay for some reason I seem to be in the minority on this one, but I Like it and I like the Actors on here as well. I have laughed at something in every episode. That hasn't been the case with some of the older show like Big Bang and Mom.. I hope this gets a 2nd season to grow that is the REAL problem with the Networks they don't give shows a chance to grow.
Setting aside the producers’ aspirationally post-racial pitch, Truth Be Told looks and moves very much like another ho-hum sitcom; there are a few laughs here and there, performed by a likable assemblage of actors--but the same could be said about almost any sitcom in any season. Even if you factor in some skin tone and conversational pitfalls, nothing here seems all that groundbreaking.
Not a single scene feels authentic, even if we excuse the overexplanations we often see in comedy pilots. This show is not provocative. It is not a conversation-starter, it is not thoughtful, it is not sharp, it is not enlightening.
Granted, some of the jokes are lame, but I found this show to be overall pretty enjoyable. The show breaches topics that a lot of shows stray away from(race, religion, sexuality) The best part of the way it approaches these topics is that it does it with a sense of humor yet allows different points of view to be expressed.
This show could really be more! The actors are all wonderful! The writing is the issue! Maybe hire the Wayans Brothers? That would be my suggestion,as well as give the little girl a bigger part! ****'s not the actors,I love them all..change the writers,and bring it back with a new reboot!
This isn't a great show, but at points it's watchable. That's a win in today's network TV sitcom landscape. Still, it's disheartening that the once proud Peacock has been reduced to this, a sitcom built on cliches and politically incorrect conversations. Ugh.
Two major flaws in this series from the onset: Canned laughter (which needs to be excised from television permanently), and both actresses. Is it important to be attractive in a sitcom? No. Is it necessary to understand the art of comedy? Yes. My advice... rewrite the show to center on the two men, possibly raising a child together (i.e. remake of My Two Dads?), and if you can't gather enough living people to laugh at your work, call the time of death.
HAHAHAHAHA! Hold on give me a moment to recover after watching this... Alright, I'm good. This show is a joke, no I did not say that wrong. The show doesn't have jokes, it IS a joke. Wow, I had a great laugh after watching the show, not because it was funny, but because it took me by surprise that a show this bad could air on Television. I think I would rather watch a lizard crawling up a fat man's anus crack (whatever that is), than watch this show again. Nothing more to say here, 0/10
