The show was fresh, sometimes frantic and always whacked-out humor that sizzled with wit wisdom and a sometimes serious comedic slap in the face! I enjoyed the wit and cynicism, that this show brought out as well as crossing various ethnic, moral and mental lines in it's path. This show was guaranteed to make you laugh from beginning to end. My favorite characters were Fire Marshall Bill ("let me show 'ya something!") and Homie the Clown ("Homey don't play dat"). When this show first premiered it was a runaway success. Not only did it have great writing, but it proved to be the springboard for several comedians who would make their mark in film and television. The writing was always sharp. What made the show so great was the writers' and actors' willingness to break boundaries and make fun of all these ethnic stereotypes, and do it in an intelligent and witty fashion. It also ultimately gave a cross section of the politics, the fashion, the trends, and the happenings that occurred in the 1990's in standard comedic form. The cultural taboos of society were dissected, ridiculed and sarcastically played out without any reservations. We laughed at the rich, poor, handicapped, gays, men, women, children, religions, social injustices and politics. Nothing was sacred.
