House of Payne.....is actually a house of family, fun & love- despite serious true life storylines which include crack addiction, teenage growing pains and beyond. the plot revolves around a man, CJ (Allen Payne) who moves in with his aunt Ella and uncle Curtis along with his wife ( A crack addict who burned down their house) & 2 children, all the family members are hilarious while comforting each other and finding resolution to various situations. If you've never seen an episode of this hit show during the first season run, order this 20 episode volume, you'll be glad you did... it is addictive and certainly entertaining!

House Of Payne - Volume One, Episodes 1-20

i watched alot of this series and it is just as advertized. this show is putting the huxatable family and all in the family sitcom back in its day mixed altogether in one brand new tv series. the show does have real to life dramatic situations and humourous reactions. like bill cosby the show is not too preachy and yet it gets to the point about moral values and christian beliefs. it is not as funny like sanford and son is. still the show is fun to watch and benefits the viewers of real to life situations and how to handle them the payneful way instead of the painful way.

This is funny. Its a great family show and always teaches something. It's great to see traditional roles being played by African Amer. vs thugs, etc. Our children need to see, Anerica needs to see that they can be firemen and middle class etc instead of seeing every Africam American playing criminals like mainstream America often portrays!

I love Tyler Perry's show and movies. They are funny and very positive for the whole family to enjoy. There is a message to learn form and I believe with his humor that he is trying to show the whole that God has a sense of humor.

Is it Tyler Perry's fault that America think this is funny? No way. Is it Tyler Perry's fault that lower-income people don't have discriminating senses of humor? Nyet. Is it Tyler Perry's fault that watching these programs will lower your IQ while it entertains you? Not on your life, buster.

Tyler Perry is giving the audience WHAT THEY WANT. You and your educated ways and your East Coast academic mindset aren't in vogue anymore. So take that college degree, set it on fire and sit down and prepare yourself to be taken to a different place. A place where fat people get very close to making you laugh and everyone has nice clothes and haircuts and you will you reflect on things for a while. It can also inspire you to think that you could be a writer on a Tyler Perry sitcom because they don't have high barriers to entry when it comes to needing to have actual writing skills. And that's why Tyler Perry is a man of the people, he's not being elitist and superior, he's being lowbrow and common THAT'S THE POINT PEOPLE!

So tired of the traditional media judging us.

Tyler Perry is America's version of Belgian TV producer Melange. Melange was famous for giving people what they wanted and cashing big check because of it. If you don't like that, maybe you should do something yourself. Tyler really does make it look easy.

Tyler Perry is the man. "THE HOUSE OF PAYNE" is
funnier than ever. *Uncle Curtis* will keep you in stitches.
When your watching this show you have to laugh, from beginning
to end. As you stay dedicated to the show, you will find out
that each episode comes with a meaning. "Tyler Perry" always leave
us with a message that we can relate to, while making us laugh at the same time.
Keep The Laughs Coming TYLER!!!!!!!

I had fun watching most of these shows. There were a few instances of bad language -- but not foul. There were two episodes that I would prohibit my children from watching. One was about impotence, and the other was about masturbation. Still, this is a funny series. I wonder if these Payne's will ever meet Martin & Gena Payne?
