A different take on the original
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was actually pretty funny and interesting. I think the reason it did not last long was the era and people were expecting it to be the exact same as the original. It was refreshing during that period of time when African Americans were finally receiving a place in our society. Their presence was somewhat sporadic, but the mid to late eighties found a place in our homes. I thought this show delivered what its intent was, to do a show staring African Americans. It included a cast to fulfill all racial cultures. The show did not just focus on the life of someone in an African American society, it showcased a wide array of diversity. I wish someone would show this program again along with others like it.
