Subpar generic sitcom that relatively succeeded because there were fewer channels imo.

R4 I revisited it yesterday and it was interesting soothing and mildly funny.

I would not have predicted that Brenda would grow up to be one of the best middle-aged actresses in Hollywood.

No doubt r17. She sucked as Brenda on the show.

I really enjoyed the first 3 seasons. Things took a slide when Countess Vag showed up.

This evening I’ll watch Mary treat Brenda like shit.

The 1985 Christmas episode is on Pluto now.

The toy store episode with Pee Wee Herman is hilarious. Oh MaaaaaaaaaaaaRY!

Mary kept Bren-da on a short choke collar. She and Lester punished her for being female.

Usually in these sitcoms the straight man is supporting. But on this show Marla Gibbs played straight man to Jackee Harry and she did it brilliantly. When sitcom actors could ACT. Sandra Clark was an absolute riot and the fictional character shares my namesake.

It’s the best show ever.

I watch it every evening on Pluto Black Comedies

R5 Marla Gibbs and Jackee Harry had great comedic timing though.

I realized Regina King was a great actress from Poetic Justice. Her and Tupac Shakur acted circles around ajanet. They actually seemed like real people, real young black people living and working South Central. Poetic Justice was really brought down by Janet’s bad acting.

I loved Brenda. Smart, nice girl with classic 80s hair and outfits. Go, Brenda!

Sign of the times: Jackee looked fat-ish to my 80s teenaged eyes; now, with morbid obesity everywhere, I realize how slim and trim she basically was.

R35 She is a big bone curvy woman who always wore her weight well.

R37 lowkey. I haven’t seen him in a while. I hope he is well.

I was just watching Karen Valentine in "Gidget Grows Up". I had no idea she was in "Room 227", but I haven't seen that since I was a kid.
