My reaction
Synopsis: the day to day life of a large family in Brooklyn
How I saw it: any number of times on television; on video (rented from Netflix), over the past week
Concept: Good.
Story: Indifferent. They’ve just about run out of good ideas by this point.
Characters: Indifferent. The kids often act out of character for the sake of creating (cliche) drama.
Dialog: Great.
Pacing: Great.
Cinematography: Indifferent.
Special effects/design: Indifferent.
Acting: Good.
Music: Good.
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good). The humor is still great, but it’s now usually in the context of crap sitcom stories. And it’s a shame that Alvin’s only in a few episodes, and Grandpa Huxtable only shows up once all season.
Objective Rating: 2.8/4 (Good).
