Freddie Wednesdays 8:30 Eastern time &:30 Eastern time 7:30 Central time.
"Freddie" Stars Freddie Pinze Jr. and Brian Austin Green. I was very excited
watch this show because I enjoyed Freddie Prinze Jr. and thought he was a
great comic actor. I had my doubts about Brian Austin Green in a sitcom
had only seen him in dramas, but I have to say Brian Austin Green does a
job in the role of Freddie's best friend, Chris, who only cares about his
next romantic conquest.
The show revolves around Freddie Moreno, played by Prinze,
owns a very trendy Chicago restaurant. Freddie is very excited to finally
able to move out of the house he grew up in, which was full of women, and
the life of a bachelor. Freddie's circumstances change when his brother
and kind-hearted Freddie takes in his pregnant sister, played by Jaqueline
Abraders (NYPD Blue), and her 13- year-old daughter, played by Chloe Suez ( the
Freddie also takes in his sister-in-law, played by Mädchen Amick (Twin
and their grandma, played by Jenny Gago.
It's hard for Freddie to continue
bachelor lifestyle when all the women in his life always find something
with every woman he dates. Grandma in particular is very harsh on his
Grandma also refuses to speak English and will only speak Spanish, even
she understands every word of English.
The cast has great comic timing and
a great ensemble. The show is very funny and should do well against its
Wednesday competition on NBC. The competition of the two more established
on CBS, King of Queens and Yes Dear, may prove tougher to beat. The show's
only problem could be that the Grandma only speaks Spanish on the show, and
translate what she says with subtitles; viewers may not want to watch a
where they have to read subtitles for one of the show's characters
they do translate it well and Grandma gets some very funny jokes). This
a 4 on a scale of 1 to 5.
