It's about time this show came out. Queen Latifah is playing for the majors, so to speak, so you would've thought this would have already been out by now. Oh well, at least it's coming. Posted Image

I am very excited for this! Remember the 2 hour block on Thursdays?

Martin, Living Single, and New York Undercover? Any word on ever getting Martin or New York Undercover? (been watching the show on TV1 lately and it brings back memories. Posted Image

I was excited about it when I got it in my e-mail and I hope they release all of the seasons. I do remember that block on thursday nights. Martin, The Facts of Life & New York Undercover are high on my future list. Sony probably doing to wait for a very long time to announce The Facts of Life but I wish they will release it in 2006...

lol, it hasn't been a very long time already? I've been holding out for an announcement for that since the days when X-Files and Sex And The City were the only shows out.

I'd want at least the first couple of seasons of this. I think the show went down in quality and originality as it went along. It had a nice, fresh premise when it started but eventually became predictable like most sitcoms, unfortunately. But that cast was fabulous.

For people who are curious, the show was cancelled after Synclaire's wedding episode which was the fourth season finale. Fox then needed a replacement series the next season and LS was rushed back into production for 13 more episodes. A bit of an anti-climax but then one never can get enough of Latifah, can one ?

I don't think I ever saw the last 13 episodes. I vaguely remember that wedding as being the last thing I saw. I even have a "music video" and MP3 of the song that Kyle and Khadijah sing at the wedding.

That lineup triggered a lot of TV talk at the time. A few things I remember said (I can't vouch for truth), is that "Friends" was a result of NBC trying to get a "mainstream" show to compete with Living Single. I also remember lots of talk about how the ratings in black families and larger audiences were so different. The ratings for Living Single were quite bad in the grand scheme of things, but for black families, it was the #1 or #2 show (I forget if it was above Martin).
