Before The Cosby Show, there was Up and Coming
12 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before The Cosby Show, there was Up and Coming. I was only 12 years old when this series first aired. I vaguely remember the details about the show but I do remember always looking forward to catching it on PBS. It was the only show like it at the time and I remember being glued to my 12" black and white TV. It was nice seeing a middle class Black American family on TV. For some reason, after all these years, this show came to mind tonight and I was wondering if IMDb had any information about it. I would love to see these episodes again. From the earlier comment, I don't recall Lawrence Fishburne being on the show but wonder what his thoughts are today about the show and how it may or may not have had an impact on his career.
