    I love Tyler Perry's work, but am having difficulty enjoying the new comedy show with Mama Hattie and the rest of the cast. I have noticed that sometimes, the time it takes one character to answer/react to something said creates a gap that affects the effectiveness of the come-back; the outcome is not funny. Another thing I have noticed is that the acting, especially Mama Hattie's is over worked. I attribute that to the probability that certain acting techniques used on stage, may have to be modified for TV. If I were to watch the show live on stage, I would probably find it irresistibly funny since, as you know, the movements and expressions (and makeup) for a stage have to be more emphasized due to the fact that I am watching the scene from a distance, whereas on TV we have close-ups, and our behaviors can be detected with minimum effort. This is just my humble opinion.

      I love all the shows. Hattie is so funny especially when they thought she burn down that restaurant. Love Tyler Perry.

      Hattie Mae is one of the best breakout characters from the Madea series. Madea works because there is only one Madea and no variations. The Hattie Mae character of the Madea Gets A Job is the best. The fact that she had such a colorful life before she ended up there at the home makes her a more endearing person. Her personality gives us a peek into her past, which leaves the door open for endless story possibilities. Character assassination is the reason why most spin offs fail. The audience loves and identifies with the character on a particular show. One of the most successful spin offs from a hit show was Frasier from Cheers. Why, because the audience loved the character Frasier Crane so when they did the spin off It was about Frazier Crane the psychiatrist and not just a vehicle for the actor Kelsey Grammer. Now, with that said no actor other than Kelsey Grammer could have made Frasier the success that it became. It was his mannerism and the way he interpreted the character that brought him to life just as Patrice Lovely has done with Hattie Mae. Hattie Mae storyline should be completely different from the House of Pain. Patrice Lovely playing Hattie Mae as sassy and still sexy with a side of quirk from Madea Gets a Job is one of the best character interpretations that have hit the tube in a long time. They both need a stronger theme and not just a vehicle. That also include the cast as well. A great cast makes for a long running series. Its all about Hattie.
