Storyline

"Moesha" is a sitcom (which, in later years, took more of a dramatic turn) that follows the life and times of a black teenager living in the Leimert Park section of Los Angeles, CA. For years since her mother died, Moesha Mitchell has taken care of her father Frank and younger brother Myles. So when a teacher at her school, Dee, marries Frank, Moesha feels her territory being encroached upon by a new step mother. As time went on, the two females of the house would learn to appreciate and cherish each other's presence. Moesha's boy-crazy best friends Kim and Niecy as well as her eternally hungry neighbor and pal Hakeem are there to support Mo throughout all of the drama she finds herself in--and there's always plenty. Andell, a local smoothie shop owner, is another close confidante of Moesha's, lending her wisdom to the teen when needed. Over the years, it was Frank who Moesha would clash with most. He has quite a hard time witnessing his "pumpkin" grow up, and often hates her ... Written by JC

This Was Not A Realistic Sitcom!
11 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Brandy Norwood was a much better actress on "Thea." Ray J was a much better actor on "The Sinbad Show." And Countess Vaughn was a much better actress on "227." This show was annoying the first episode. Dee shouldn't have been so mean to Moesha! She was just Moesha's step mother. And the show got worse a little later during the first season when Moesha turned down a brand new Saturn because she wanted a jeep. (Spoiled Brat!) But the show really started getting crazy when Shar Jackson became a regular and Kim stopped trying to talk to Hakeem every episode. When they made Ray J. a regular on the show, the show became too crazy. Ray J. would do something horrible and get in trouble every episode. Then Frank admitted that he was D Money's dad. The show became out of control with guest appearances of Lil Bow Wow as D Money's 1/2 brother. It was so out of control that Sheryl Lee Ralph left the show. Of course Moesha was still conceited. But what made this show end so horribly was the fact that the show ended with a cliffhanger! Who was pregnant? Who kidnapped Miles? Countess Vaughn left for "The Parkers" just in time! RIP Lamont Bentley!
