Review of "Marlon" 9/26/17 by
airs this Summer on NBC
This aired in August on NBC. I hope it comes back because
it's a pretty funny sitcom. I don't find most sitcoms today
to be very funny. I'm not saying it's the most hilarious
show out there, but it did make me laugh.
Marlon Wayans pulls out all the stops playing a guy
similar to himself (although a lot more annoying, probably).
His character is a childish guy who lives with his friend
but still keeps close ties to his wife and children.
He seems not to be able to grow up. If it weren't a
sitcom, he would be pretty pathetic.
I really enjoyed the show and its characters. I hope NBC
makes more funny shows like this! It's a shame they didn't
have the confidence in it to make it a real series during
the year rather than just running them at the end of the
Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans
(“In Living Color,” “Scary Movie”), this update to the
classic family comedy centers on a loving (but sometimes
inappropriate) father committed to co-parenting his two kids
with his very-together ex-wife. While his misguided fatherly
advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and
unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way
sometimes, for Marlon family really always does come first —
even if he’s the biggest kid of all.
