George Lopez - The Complete First and Second Seasons
This is your standard sitcom. I have to admit that the few times I watched it in
the past, I didn't stay with it because I didn't find it that funny.
After watching the pilot, I had to reconsider. It was pretty funny. I
watched other episodes and did laugh. It's the kind of show you may not go out
of your way for, but you might not change the channel, either. Especially
since nowadays there are very few sitcoms out there, and most of them are really
Sandra Bullock, who is producer of the series, appears occasionally on the show
as Accident Amy. That is a definite plus. The characters are all likable.
The show is about new plant manager George, who used to be one of the regular
workers. His mom is one of the workers, too, and she is pretty mean. Most
of the jokes are about family situations, or George's poor upbringing, or about
how scary his mom is.
The disk set is good to have, but it should have more extras. There are only
two: a gag reel (outtakes and bloopers) and a feature "Inside the Comic Mind:
What Shapes George's Comic Outlook"
If you are tired of all the dramas and reality shows on TV, this show is worth
checking out for some laughs!
