Storyline

Popular comedian Mark Curry plays Mr. Mark Cooper, a single high school teacher and basketball coach living in Oakland, California. Between coaching, teaching, dealing with neighborhood struggles and living with two beautiful female roommates (played by Holly Robinson Peete and Dawnn Lewis), Mr. Cooper keeps a humorous, positive outlook on life and provides advice and fun to the many people in his life that he encounters. The show also stars Omar Gooding as one of Cooper's students and basketball players Earvin Rodman. The show became more family orientated in the second season, adding Raven-Symone and Nell Carter while dropping Dawnn Lewis. Written by knightbk

Trivia

In the episode where Mr. Cooper plays basketball for the Golden State Warriors, the practice scenes were taped at the Warriors' home court in Oakland, but the game itself was recorded at the University of California's gymnasium in Berkeley; it was an actual pre-season game against Phoenix, held in Berkeley because Kevin Johnson, who was playing for the Suns after graduating from Cal, was having his college number retired that night. The scenes of Mark Curry playing were not specially scripted; he did, in fact, actually play in the game. See more »

a funny show which deserved a better ending
21 June 2007 | by (London, England, UK) – See all my reviews

I know a lot of people didn't like Hangin' with Mr Cooper but i did and i thought it was a funny sitcom. Mark Curry was just off the wall, as ex-basketball player Mark cooper, whose injury cuts short his sporting career and thus, he ends up being a science teacher/sports instructor at Oakland college, whilst Holly Robinson Peete proved that she can act in a sitcom, after her early stint in the 80s US hit drama, 21 jump street, playing Vanessa Russell. Dawnn Lewis from A Different World rounded up the cast as Robin Dumars.

The show did lose its momentum slightly when Geneva and her daughter, Nicole played by Raven Symone arrived on the scene, although i thought the romantic subplot involving Mark and Vanessa as the show progressed was interesting. I actually thought they looked cute as a couple; therefore i didn't have anything against it, i was just surprised that it wasn't until so late on in the series that the pair admitted their feelings for each other.The timing of it was rather inadequate and out of sync with the show.

I personally didn't think that Hangin' With Mr Cooper was trying to be like any other(black)sitcom but rather it had it's own agenda; although you could argue that whilst the main character Marion,in In The House was a former American Football player, Mark in 'Hangin' With...' was a ex- professional basketball player, who ends up sharing a house with two other women.

Eventually, the show got cancelled- much to my dismay- because it was and still is one of my favourite sitcoms ever and the ending was rather ill-timed and unfortunate, thus we will never know what the future holds for Mark and Vanessa as a couple.

Nonetheless, Hangin' with Mr Cooper was a fun-filled, humorous show, which should've got and deserved a much better conclusion to the sitcom.
