Picks and Pans Review: Buddies
They aren't exactly homeys, and they aren't exactly Friends; they're interracial partners—Dave (David Chappelle) and John (Christopher Gartin), aspiring video-and filmmakers in Chicago. John's loudmouthed mother-in-law (Judith Ivey) thinks Dave is out to steal the stereo, and Dave's dad (Richard Roundtree) has "black-owned" for a mantra, but somehow the cast all get along. Dave's apartment is terrific, but the buddies don't seem at ease together—and the premiere, about buying a sofa, has been done better by IKEA. After the debut, the show will start in its regular time slot (Wednesdays, 9:30 p.m. ET).
