Fantastic
20 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent series. The characters are all delightful.The writing of Yvette Lee Bowser is outstanding , just as it was on Living Single. Essence Atkins(Dee Dee) and Rachel True(Mona) were excellent choices for the parts they play. You can easily fall in love with any of the cast. Spencer played by Chico Benymon is funny as hell.Valarie Pettiford who plays Big Dee Dee is one of a kind.The writing is clever and witty. The thing I love about the show is that its not corny and silly. Its just good. I routinely laugh out loud when watching this show. You will love her.Another great thing about the show is all the fresh faces. They did a good job having new guest stars pop in and out. Thelma Hopkins(Phyliss, Mona's Mom) was also a good character. You may remember here from Give Me a Break. The give and take between her and Pettiford produced some of the best one liners you will ever hear on TV. I'm still enjoying this show on syndication.
