Not Quite Sure How Long It'll Last
13 November 2002 | by BoutdatDoughSee all my reviews

I'm not quite sure how long this sitcom will last; however, I do tune in every Monday night. I find the characters to be mediocre; I guess, the show's plot is a little weak, though, and I believe that the writer will soon run out of ideas. For now, though, it's a cute little sitcom that passes the time by on a Monday night. Mona's character is cool, but the hippie look is kind of played out-I know she's supposed to be this funky bi-racial chic, but they could spice up her wardrobe a bit.

The other sister, Dee Dee is a bit annoying, however, they do dress her up nice on the show. I think that her looks are a bit overrated according to the show-I guess she's supposed to be the "prettier" sister, however, I think Mona is prettier, it's just her wardrobe that downplays her character.

Dee Dee's mother, Big Dee Dee, is overly theatrical and her "poshness" is a little overbearing. Overall, like I said, it's good to pass the time. I'm just curious as to how long it'll be on the air.
