Is It Any Good?

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

The series offers a humorous portrayal of what it is like to be a family whose occupation is to serve the community in a way that is guided by faith. It also underscores the idea that despite their chosen occupation, preachers and their families still have the same passions and problems as anyone else.

Much of the show reflects an African-American church experience, but it offers lots of positive messages about family and serving the community that appeals to all kinds of people. Ultimately, if you're inspired to watch something that's lighthearted and fun, this show could be the answer.
