The critics may be lavishing praise on Fox's new television series "South Central," but many real-life residents of the area gave the Tuesday night premiere mixed reviews. "I'm ambiguous about it," said Bobby Glanton Smith, a consultant for the Marcus Garvey School. "It was intriguing enough that I would watch more episodes, but it had somewhat troubling stereotypical aspects, particularly the son who seemed lazy and had no direction. Hopefully the characters will develop in later episodes."

Television pilots are a dime a dozen but "South Central" was clearly different and provocative from the start. Using the traditional half-hour comedy length, but actually far more of a dramedy about a struggling black family in the Los Angeles community, it faced a tough road. The series finally begins pre-production for the Fox Broadcasting Co.
