Critic Reviews for Martin: Season 5

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

Martin became a counterbalance, a story set in urban Detroit with a largely black cast. A bit of a blowhard and a paper tiger, Martin is a funny guy who likes to act tough, but is secretly a softy on the inside.

We laughed over Sheneneh's antics, Lil Roscoe's tricks and were thoroughly entertained by all of the characters, especially the ones show creator Martin Lawrence played in disguise.
