I thank God every day for blessing me with that gene.
I would wager that the majority of fans, for this show, have been there since the original pilot aired a decade ago on HBO. It’s like an exclusive club where we all belong. We’re happy to have new members and don’t care if someone doesn’t want to join.
I know many people over the years who have tuned in. They fall into one of two categories, either they do not like it, for whatever reason (don’t have the gene
), or, they are dishonest and claim to like it but really don’t get it and end up bailing.
This is not the type of show worth wasting time trying to convince someone that it is funny. I recommend, for newbies, to watch a complete season, or story arc, and decide from there. For this season, however, one would definitely have to watch last season also, to fully appreciate the members of the Black family.
