Ice Cube and Terry Crews
CAN’T LOSE!

Terry Crews and the rest of the cast of the new TBS comedy “Are We There Yet?” have done what many thought impossible.

Since the early days of TV, it’s been accepted that it takes a week to film a sitcom episode. That thinking might change with “Are We There Yet?” filming three episodes a week.

“For years everyone in Hollywood said this kind of schedule was impossible. But we did it. I do have to admit, it’s really not as hard as you think. But it takes a lot of coordination,” Crews says. “Our thing was ‘It’s comedy. Relax.’ We aren’t doing Shakespeare.”

If you’ve seen either of the “ARE WE THERE YET” films that Ice Cube has starred in, the TBS version follows suit. NICK (Terry Crews Character) marries a single mom SUZANNA (played by Essence Atkins) of two kids. The children like Nick enough to give him a hard time every now and then, while “the married life” encroaches on his fantasy side.

No– Nick isn’t playing off on his new wife, but he certainly isn’t shy about calling out her “bed time appearance”. The wrapped and pinned down hair do that Suzanna wears to bed is a little sobering for the newlywed husband who cracked on her saying, “In the daytime you look like Halle Berry – but at bedtime you look like Tyler Perry”. lol!

Two months ago I went to a house party around the time that Erykah Badu was under scrutiny for her “Naked Grassy Knoll” video, and as stunning as her naked body was, (mother of 3 kids), there was a guy at the party that was miffed because Erykah’s hair was covered by a rising stocking cap. Erykah was just keeping it real. But because of “the stocking cap factor” – ol’ boy at the party missed the concept & deeper message of the video. Terry Crews represented “that young mans stand” with his Halle Berry/Tyler Perry crack on his wife.

It’s a sitcom show. It’s taped on a set. Kind of like the way “MY WIFE & KIDS” show looked. What’s most impressive about this project than others before it, is the unprecedented pace at which they are taping/producing the show. ICE CUBE is a genius when it comes to “not wasting time or money”. His professional antics are catchy and his progress is on going…

Are we there yet?
I’m Qui
…and I’m on my way!

Ice Cube is a great filmmaker to study. KNOWLEDGE is KEY. WE must support WE.

“ARE WE THERE YET” comes on TBS Wednesday nights @ 9/8c
