Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Using comedy and a bit of drama, the original BET scripted series stars actors pretending to be themselves in fictional situations. Second Generation Wayans also attempts to highlight some of the pros and cons that come with being part of a family with a Hollywood legacy when trying to build a career in the entertainment industry, and weave them into individual narratives about romance and relationships.

Some of story combinations work, and there are some light-hearted moments, too. But the conflicts presented here aren't particularly creative, and there isn't much here to make you laugh out loud. Nonetheless, the cast is definitely likable, and no doubt that viewers will be interested in seeing what the new generation of this famous Hollywood family is up to.
