I always enjoyed watching this show. I didn't watch it in the
80's, but later, in reruns. It is very funny, and it also manages to talk about
many feminist issues. The actresses are great on the show and do a wonderful
job. It's much more than just a younger version of "Golden Girls"! Also, it is
one of the few realistic shows set in the south.
Although the women, of course, are the main characters, my favorite was always
Anthony. He just cracked me up.
The fifth season is when the show was at its prime. I'm glad Shout! Factory is
bringing these out for the fans. The show is still very funny, even though it's
over 20 years old.
Unfortunately, the DVD does not have any extras or features. That is too bad,
especially since most of the cast is still alive and would probably be happy to
talk about the show.
Nonetheless, any fan of good comedy should love this set!
