I like this show.
14 November 2018 | by mastuhoscgSee all my reviews

I like the series "Sparks". The reason why I like the series so much is because it was very hilarious. I was NOT alive when this series was airing on the now defunct UPN, but I can still appreciate it. My favourite actors on this here program were James Avery (RIP), Kym Whitley, Arif S. Kinchen, Terrence Howard, Miguel Nunez, Jr. & Robin Givens (NO OFFENSE BUT I FOUND OUT SHE WAS A DRAG QUEEN). This show is very cool but ironically, it was short-lived because of the ratings. I even like how this sitcom was Distributed by 20th Century-Fox Television, MTM Enterprises & The Weinberger Company. I knew very little about "Sparks" until I watched episodes of it on YouTube. I'd be very happy if 20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment (IF DISNEY DOES NOT BUY IT) could release both seasons of this show on DVD.
