Trivia

Mo'Nique and Dorien Wilson are the only cast members to appear in every episode of the series. Had it not been for her pregnancy and giving birth, it's very likely that Countess Vaughn would've appeared in every episode as well. See more »

Goofs

Technically speaking, there is no way Kim, Nikki, Stevie, and T could have spent five years as students at Santa Monica College. Santa Monica College in reality is only a two year junior college. See more »

This Show Was Funny But It Could Be Very Serious
6 June 2004 | by (Portsmouth, Virginia) – See all my reviews

The first season of the Parkers was the best season! The show went down just like most other black sitcoms. Those "very special" episodes, such as the episode where Chilli from TLC had HIV and Nikki found out that she was adopted were not good and ruined the fun of the show. It was funny when Countess Vaughn acted stupid. Very few people know that one of Countess Vaughn's boyfriends on the show was on a short lived sitcom called "Homeroom" when he was little. But when she acted serious, then the show was not funny at all. Also the series finale was so predictable. Everyone knew since the first episode that The Professor was going to marry Nikki Parker. That whole entire plot was stolen by "A Different World." It would have been neat if the ending would have been like "Who's The Boss?"
