one of the worst shows i've ever seen, no exaggeration


This show is absolutley terrible. Completely horrible. There is nothing good that I can say about this *beep* I watched the pilot thinking "eh, nothing else on, how bad can it be?" That was a huge mistake. I'm getting so sick of Tyler Perry. Everything he makes completely sucks ass, he just needs to stop. All of his movies are horrible, and don't even get me started on House of Payne. And why does he have to put his name in front of everything he does? No one cares. Seriously, how long can this go on?

I agree.

Tyler Perry thinks he's funny, but he's not. He's just annoying.

Am I not 'turtely' enough for the "Turtle Club"?

reply

I agree. This show sucks.

reply

LOL, white people hating on Brown 'cause he's funnier than they is:)

Let's write something on the carpet. I know, let's write MOTHER SUCKS!

reply

What does it matter if we are white or black? Why do most black people have to bring race into the picture anytime someone criticizes something they like?

By the way, I know 5 year olds who are both funnier AND wittier than Tyler and his stupid characters. No joke, I'm not just saying that to make him look bad.

You guys hate on his shows and movies, but they gross so much money. They are amazing and moving. I would love to see you guys go through the crap Perry went through and write scripts. So guys, when are "your hit movies" coming out?

hmmmm....
people are always looking for excuses to explain away differences of opinion.
for the race record, i know waaaay too many black people who do not like TP's shows. i am one of them. i know few who do not like his movies. i am one of them. i know less who do not like TP at all. i am one of them. so what's wrong with that. I have never ever liked him. And i don't think (and never thought) he was funny. period.

on the positive side though, they kept showing Why Did I Get Married on cable so i finally watched it. I liked it a lot. so score one and the only one for him.

as for the browns, b/c i think that's what this thread is about, i have never ever watched it. never ever plan to. i would rather projectile vommit all day then watch it. i can't even look at the commercials for it. TP aside, i have NEVER EVER liked those buffoonery fools called the browns! wow!! i only came here to see people's opions on the show.

by the way, i'm not a hater; i'm just telling it like it is.

reply

oh, and 1 more thing, imagine my surprise (but not really), dismay and disgust when i was scrolling through my guide and saw 1 or 2 hours of house of payne, 1 hour of the browns; and then here's the kicker: The Tyler Perry Show. wtf!!!!!! this is a third show for him............. a talk show of some sorts.
BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

reply

Speaking of the worst TV shows of 2010...."Meet The Browns",and "House Of Payne" are on the list...right up there with "Frankie and Neffe".

reply

Just because Tyler Perry had a bad life does not make his shows or movies enjoyable. I feel bad for anything that TP went through. Maybe it would be powerful to hear TP talk about those experiences. However, no amount of empathy for TP's situation will ever make "Meet the Browns" funny.

Additionally, the fact that TP's movies and shows gross tons of money is irrelevant to the issue of whether or not they are enjoyable. Plenty of terrible things make tons of money. For example, The Hills' Lauren Conrad wrote a best seller. A BEST SELLER! Paris Hilton makes tons of money for making appearances at night clubs. The Jonas Brothers are a tremendously profitable band.
The fact that "Meet the Browns" makes TP money does not make the show's punchlines any funnier.

WarBringer, the only group of people who 'bring race into the picture anytime someone criticizes something they like' are YOUR people (Whites). Get your self-important, deluded, Attention-Whoring facts straight.

By the way, I know 5 year olds who are both funner, smarter, AND wittier than you, your pathetic Screename, and your equally pathetic Sig. No joke. I'm not just saying that in response to your *beep* either.

Get a *beep* Life, racist...

Obviously not, as that self-proclaimed black person started it first.

reply

...Obviously SO, as your people were the 'self-proclaimed' group who built an entire Society/Civilization off of 'bringing race into the picture,' so do yourself a favor and spare me that indignant, puerile, self-important, reverse-racism bull.

You people and your slight differences disgust me.

Wow... he's funnier than -THEY- is? Jesus *beep* christ this isn't the ghetto, learn some basic english please you racist fool.


I hate it when people get on here and bash shows esp when they still come on.


Yeah I know man the nerve of these people who actually have opinions on TV shows. What are they thinking with their opinions and freedom of speech and stuff. The nerve!

reply

I am white & I happen to love this show! I also love House of Payne. Nothing could be dumber than the shows everyone is raving about lately like Modern Family, The B in Apt. 23, The Neighbors, and The Middle. Talk about stupid shows! I also enjoy Tyler Perry's movies. I am from Atlanta & he is in the local news often for all the nice things he does for less fortunate people. I personally knew a woman who was a waitress at Red Lobster. She was really old enough to retire, but couldn't afford to. She didn't even know who Tyler Perry was. He ate at Red Lobster & left her a $200 tip! Never said a word, never acted like he was anyone famous; just acted like a regular ole customer. She didn't know he was famous till she showed the credit card receipt to a co worker & they told her who he was. I think he is extrememly talented & generous. If everyone here doesn't like him or the show then why are you all on here posting anyway?

reply

Well his shows must not be that bad cause if they were they would be cancelled already. So somebody watches them. I hate it when people get on here and bash shows esp when they still come on.

reply

Just stating my opinion on it.

Tmkforrest I agree.

Tmkforrest I agree.

Well all I can say I just watched two episodes of this for the first time and in fact sitting here watching it with my mother now. She thinks its 'hilarious'. I havent laughed once and its the most painful two hours I had in a long time watching. This and House of Pain seems to be very standard, bland comedies that were done in the 70s. I cant believe people like them today. I dont get it, but my own mother likes it lol, so someone is into it. But again, she likes Perrys movies and I cant stand them. I got through two of them and it was enough.

These shows feel too much like minstel shows to me. I dont get why Perry is so sucessful, but that said, if people enjoy what he does and delivers for them, I cant be too mad at him.

But his material his crap IMO.

Your tombstone won't read: Had great taste in movies & tv shows. No one cares!!

reply

I could see giving it a chance watching 1 episode,not liking it & not watching it again. but ppl that dislike eveything he does will keep watching faithfully every week! & then come to the board to complain. makes no sense to me. & they seem to know the characters & plots better than ppl that actually enjoy the show.

I agree Miss Lovie.

reply

I agree with you Miss Lovie some of them will watch it over and over again even though they say they hate it so much - I wonder if they know thats a sign of insanity; doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.

I have to disagree with you OP, unless you hardly watch TV, there are many worse shows -pointless, too corny to fully describe, with the laugh track every ten seconds so annoying you want to burn the tv - and you people love them though

The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.

reply

Couldn't think of two better words to describe this and pretty much anything else this guy makes. The 30 second commercials alone are near torture when they come on. His movies are terrible too. I had to sit through that stupid married movie on my to Acapulco a few spring breaks ago; I figured I would have enjoyed pretty much anything they played on that flight considering where I was going, but boy was I wrong.

reply

I change the channel whenever a commercial for The House of Payne or Meet the Browns comes on.

And the reason Tyler Perry is able to keep his shows on the air is because he has money from his movies to KEEP them on.

Am I not 'turtely' enough for the "Turtle Club"?

reply

It never ceases to amaze me when people long-windedly complain about TV shows that they don't like...as if they are being forced to watch them. I think what really bothers these whining naysayers is that they know that others enjoy it, and that the shows are still a success without their approval or support. Meet The Browns is a hit for TBS, and probably will remain on the air indefinitely. Don't like it? *shrugs* Oh well. Either don't watch it, or continue to be irked.

He will stop making this stuff, when he starts losing money. As long as he is raking in more and more money, you will see him more, and considering that TBS just ordered more from him, and this is being sent out in syndication, you will be bothered by more of his products being around.
Just think of his name always being in front of his work, as a special blessing just for you. Since you hate his work so much, it will make it easy for you to avoid it.

Let's all kiss and make up, after you find the mouthwash.

excuse me??! i haven't watched many of tyler perry's movies but I know that diary of a mad black woman was a great movie so you need to stop being so negative. stop hatin and get a hobby

reply

Diary of a Mad Black Woman was a very good film, I watched it by accident and ended up getting engulfed in it's cleverness.

This show, on the other hand, is the worst sitcom I have ever seen in my life I think. It seems like they say "ready, get set, ACT!" when they "act," if that's what you want to call it.
