"Tyler Perry's If Loving You Is Wrong" review by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays 9/8c on OWN

I was really hoping I'd like this because I enjoy a good soap opera, and I'd heard that Tyler Perry's other show "The Haves and the Have Nots" is pretty good. However, I'm sorry to say that this is the worst soap opera I've ever seen (possibly the worst drama), and that includes low budget online soaps.

It's hard to even know where to begin because the acting, the timing, the dialogue, the plot - all are very bad. Embarrassingly bad. The first episode starts out with a really sexy scene between two of the characters, who are having an affair.  That was fine, but once they started talking, I wonder if I had somehow tuned into a soft porn channel because that's how bad the acting and writing are.

I really like Aiden Turner (featured in the photo above), who plays the cuckolded husband, and also Charles Malik Whitfield, who's been in many great shows. Turner starred in "All My Children". He's gorgeous and has a wonderful accent, and he's learned to act over the years. His talents, as all of the actors, are wasted in this. It even made me wonder if there was no script and they were all just ad-libbing or something. April Parker-Jones is another very fine actress in this (she was great in "Jericho" and has been on "The Young & The Restless" quite a few times).

I would give this one a miss unless you really love Tyler Perry or unless you want to watch something while you get drunk that you can laugh at because it's so bad.
