Trivia

An unaired pilot episode was filmed with two different actresses portraying main characters. Leslie Silva and Christina Cox played Toni Childs and Lynn Searcy, respectively. Clips from the original pilot could be seen during commercials advertising the 2000-2001 lineup of shows to air on UPN Monday nights. By the time the show premiered, however, Jill Marie Jones had replaced Leslie Silva as Toni, Persia White had replaced Christina Cox as Lynn, and the original pilot never aired. See more »

An Outstanding, Beautifully Written Show
16 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

I cannot say enough good things about this show.

It is so funny, but so realistic at the same time. Not since Living Single has there been a show that captures the life of the Black middle class as well Girlfriends.

Some say this show is stereotypical, but to build likeable characters, sometimes you have to start with a framework everyone easily can understand. The story arc has taken these basic stereotypes and built full characters that diehard viewers have come to really love. We really did care when William quit his job at the firm, as we did when Joan was stuck trying to decide between her actor boyfriend and his agent.

Anyone open-minded person who appreciated Frasier would love this show.

I only hope that it a) enjoys a much longer life with the same or better quality of writing and b) old episodes are made available on DVD.
