Product Description

When Mr. Brown discovers a letter from his deceased father asking him to “take care of the old,” he dutifully opens a senior-care facility. Then he finds the second page of his father’s letter, finishing the sentence “…Thunderbird in the garage.” So begins Mr. Brown’s big adventure.

Amazon.com

Tyler Perry didn't get to where he is by doing things in half measures. Meet the Browns, Perry's looser, cruder companion piece to the successful House of Payne, is a profoundly odd series, an inspirational sitcom that isn't averse to scraping its jokes from somewhere underneath the barrel. While the lessons learned are suitable for all audiences, cautious parents should have earmuffs at the ready. Based on Perry's play of the same name (and its 2008 film adaptation), the show follows the misadventures of Mr. Brown (David Mann), a sartorially challenged busybody with a heart of gold who turns his house into a retirement home, with the aid of his daughter Cora (Mann's real-life wife Tamela). Quickly assembling an assortment of oddball tenants--including an iron-jawed military man, a delusional ex-starlet, and a Paris Hilton-ish party girl fulfilling her community service--the Browns and company weather comedic crises both small and large. While most series struggle with an early bout of trial and error, this first season sees more than its fair share of awkward changeups, with initially prominent characters that wink out of existence and motivations that change on a whim. By the second half of these initial 20 episodes, however, Meet the Browns has found a groove of sorts, with its talented cast (particularly David Mann, whose pratfalls are a wonder to behold) smoothly rolling with the changes and bringing their A game to both the comedic and dramatic moments. Still, audiences may find it hard to figure out how to respond to a show where, at any given moment, a character is liable to either burst into a beautiful gospel number, or writhe around on the floor for 10 minutes after being slipped a laxative. Pick a card, folks. --Andrew Wright

I bought this for my dad. So far he likes it. I plan to get season two for him as soon as possible. Boxed sets are more convenient.

I love Mr. Brown. God bless him. The show is funny without being vulgar or rude. Tyler Perry does it again.

The character Mr. Brown has me in tears - true belly laughs with his antics.
The only down side to the episodes is the dark side of life that IS NOT FUNNY (ACTUALLY DISTURBING) - Example:
Thematic subject matter relating to sexual immorality; domestic violence; child sexual and physical abuse; and teen pregnacy with no clear guidance morally but down plays the significance of these societal problems.

I will have to weigh any future purchases with "home much comedy is worth putting up with the other cleverly disguised garbage." There should be clear ratings of this material and description of the content so one is not sucked into believing this is just lightweight entertainment.

You must see my review on " Tyler Perry's House of Payne complete series 1-8 ". (copy and paste title in Amazon's search box).
I spilled my heart out writing that review of Tyler Perry shows, movies and plays. There are people who don't understand how this television show, Meet The Browns and all Tyler Perry productions, mimics a very funny, people of Color television show, from the 50's. Back then, organizations fought to get it off the air because of stereo typing, yet today we seem to have revive that genre and loving it.
