Sherri: The Complete Season One DVD Review

 Sherri: The Complete Season One DVD Review



Synopsis: Actress, comedienne, author and co-host of ABC's THE VIEW; Sherri Shepherd stars as Sherri Robinson, a single mother who juggles caring for her six-year-old son, Bo (Brandon Khalil), and working part-time as a paralegal, while still following her dream to become a full-time comedienne/actress. Recently separated from her cheating husband, Kevin (Malcolm-Jamal Warner), Sherri finds solace and support from her girlfriends at the office: Celia (Tammy Townsend), Angie (Elizabeth Regen), and even her overbearing supervisor, Summer (Kali Rocha). Sherri s life becomes even more complicated when Kevin reveals that Paula (Kate Reinders), the 20-year-old he had an affair with, is pregnant.

SHERRI: THE COMPLETE SEASON 1 features all 13 hilarious episodes of the inaugural season plus extras on 2 discs!

Review: We just reviewed the Lifetime show Rita Rocks.  That show is kinda cute and charming.  Sherri, on the other hand, is not.  Lets start with Sherri Shepherd herself...she is a regular on 'The View' and she is so overtly obnoxious that its hard to watch her.  She had an arguement once on that show where she insisted that perhap the earth wasn't round.  She's insane.  That said, we wanted to give her show a fair shake, so I put aside her off-screen personality to see if this series could work.

This series doesn't work.  Its basically a bitter, man-hating sit-com.  Yes, men cheat on their wives..so do women on their husbands.  Its horrible, but hardly an interesting basis for a weekly show.  There isn't anything interesting that happens from episode to episode and Sherri's "acting" is dry and forced. 

Unfortunately, this show doesn't rate well with us.  Lifetime generally has a high-level of programming.  This show is just the exception.   Baba Booey.

Rating: 2 out of 5 Stars
