My Favorite Things: Malcolm & Eddie (TV Series)

They say that somethings get better with time. That seem to not be the case when it came to The CW. The CW used to be UPN, UPN used to be one of the most amazing channels in TV. This was before the days of one million channels. This is the channel that BET should have been. It was black star power. With the diversity that is the black culture. They had amazing shows, Girlfriends and Half & Half to just name two of the endless hits. They had the youth. They had the future. That was till they closed down and joined together with The WB and became what it is today. Whatever it is today.  So whack now. The CW. It moved to a new range of people. Girls in they teens that like to watch corny stuff. 

One of the shows that was on the great UPN was Malcolm & Eddie. Malcolm McGee (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) is a responsible and sensible twenty something who ends up sharing an apartment and a business venture with relentlessly enthusiastic tow truck owner Eddie Sherman (Eddie Griffin) in Kansas City, Missouri (which is Eddie Griffin's hometown). A fast talker with outlandish frenetic energy, Eddie's charming naiveté always seems to get the two into hot water. But no matter what the situation, these opposites always end up bailing each other out.

Crackle currently have Season One for free to watch. I hope they add the other three.   Check the show out and let me know what you think.
