Wow, Marla Gibbs is on now interviewing for her maid position

that she played on the original show. Nice surprise.

 

Jackee Harry is on too and she and Marla were on 227. I

loved that show too. Marla, turns 88 next month.

I think it's a flop.

It was a cheap imitation.  All of it.

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

It’s really bad. Pretty hokey. Not a good remake or even an attempt.

The episode of the Jeffersons that they duplicated I had just seen last week, on TV One.  aside from his much larger frame, Foxx sounded just like Sherman Hemsley.

      I switched on the show just to see.  Was not too impressed and changed the channel after a while  The lines were spoken as though they were reciting in some speech contest.  No one seemed to have any feeling to the words!   

      I do think Jamie F. was funny and it even seemed that he went off script and improvised a bit!!
