Tyler Perry's Worse Show Ever

I really enjoy Tyler Perry's work and usually find it to be entertaining, funny and enlightening. This show is a huge disappointment. While it covers some very serious life situations, it minimizes their importance and severity with poor acting . The dialogue is repetitive and not true to life. It portrays minorities in a terrible light that is neither accurate or entertaining. It's so unbelievably bad that you can't determine if if it's bad intentionally or just one of the worse mistakes TP has ever made.
