I couldn't make it through the first episode without cringing.

Can't say much to the real issues adressed in this show, but it is funny for sure. And Beth is proving, that she ain't a one hit wonder.

The show is hilarious and well thought out. Each episode has a learning lesson.

The show is corny but funny. We recently (2 years ago) moved from the country of Upstate NY to the ghetto of Indianapolis and there is a lot of relatability in the show. We definitely feel like the Dave and Gemma. Although their neighborhood is a lot nicer than ours and we have a lot more violence and death.

It's a little bit basic. I'm watching from the uk and it's my easy light watch for the week. I've watched every episode so far and I'm in S2 ep17 so it can't be that bad. Some people may say there some reverse racism contained within it but it is more that the jokes are based around race. Because it based on race it would not appeal to most uk audiences because we are not such a racially divide society like the USA still is.

I really like this corny show.

The Neighborhood is an overly sitcomy cliche fest. The script is predictable, the acting is completely overdone, and the laugh track is intrusive. It's like a parody specifically written to be cheesier than the cheesiest multicam sitcom. This just screams of a show trying to be "woke", hip and topical, but to me it feels more like a show out of its time.

The best shows with a culturally diverse cast (Including The Neighborhood)

The Neighborhood

It starts with when Dave Johnson, a male white, moves to a black neighborhood with his family and reminded that racism is real. Ironically its him facing the white prejudice in an effort to get closer with his neighbor Calvin Butler. The show comes with light humor as the two families evolve together. Small details of black household culture become visible as the series continue. The age gap doesn’t seem to matter as Grover, an elementary school student bonds with his neighbors Marty and Malcolm. Same goes with the female protagonists Gemma and Tina.

Four Weddings and Funeral

Based on a novel with the same name, the story describes how an American girl falls in love with a Pakistani-British man while visiting her best friend in London. The cast portrays a pretty diverse group including white, black, and brown people of different origins. The cultural mix is well-highlighted as the show presents British, Pakistani, and American ethnicities of the characters. The tension caused by Maya and Kash’s romantic encounter breaks the friends and then brings them closer. Get ready to hop on an emotional roller coaster!

The Big Bang Theory

An iconic sitcom and also my all time favorite TV show is a barrel of laughs. I dare you to watch one episode and not laugh all the way through it. Although majorly focused on American characters, one of the lead character and the cast, Raj, hails from India. The influence of parents and the culture of typical Indian family is quite dominant in his life. The show also brings some guest characters as part of Raj’s life or not to forget Sheldon’s another best friend of Vietnamese origin. The show ended with twelve seasons last year leaving its fans in tears but can still be enjoyed as much as when it was first aired.

Enjoy these shows and let me know about your favorite scenes!

 

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
