I'm with you Thomas, I liked the show, wish that it would have lasted longer than 2 seasons.

What did you like about it? Clifton Davis is such a bore. His dryness was overshadowed by Sherman Hemsley on Amen so it wasn't that noticeable. But on That;s my Mama he was boring and so was his mother

Only the mailman and Junior kept the show somewhat watchable

I liked the show period, I liked the interaction between Clifton and his mom, Clifton and Earl. Junior really didn't do much for me, maybe it's because he didn't have that many lines and he was always in and out. The one person I could have done without was Leonard. I loved the first Leonard they had, he fit in more I think.

Please, no one is trying to buy TMM unless it's a ABC episode with commercials.

Plus the DVD was edited. I was reading a Jet magazine and there is a scene from a episode in the Jet that I never saw on the DVD. I still saw the same lady but not the way she was shown in the jet

ITA , Junior was that tag character that most tv shows have that viewers talk about. He was like extra icing. Leonard was okay with me. Geeky he played well.

There are some funny moments on this show,but I don't think this show was very good.It was mediocre.Great cast,but the writing wasn't consistently good.The other day,I was watching one of the episodes in Season Two.The characters were on a road trip to a wedding,they got lost and had to stay in a run-down hotel for the night.On paper,this *sounds* like it would be a great episode but the episode was silly and unfunny.

I saw that episode when they were driving to Philadelphia. I've had it since I was 12 years. My local affiliate WFTS 28 in Tampa was airing it. I thought it was a good episode. The show, I guess was mediocre but I still liked it. I thought that season two did lose a few points. Some season one elements were missing. It's almost like TV ONE's "Love that girl". Since Tatyana Ali left, her presence to me is missed. I like the character "Imunique" but she is better as a side character and Tatyana's character "Tiana" needs to be there.

I actually thought that the episode where they were on the road trip was the best episode of the second season. Of course it's not saying much because Season Two is not good!

That was actually one of the better episodes since they were not in that house like most of the eps

Clifton Davis was a babe magnet, all the stuff on him being dry maybe true, but the fact that women liked him surpassed that.

Well why was the show cancelled in mid season 2 while Ugly JJ's show was on for 6 years?

Clifton Davis was nice looking! I never saw this show in reruns, only first run in the early 70's! But I do remember Clifton Davis being handsome.
