Main Cast Reviews  Jasmine Guy, Kadeem Hardison, Darryl M. Bell Categories  Comedy Duration  1987 - 1993 72

Review
This series takes a look at a group of students at a mainly Black university. The storylines are about their college adventures. There is a dramatic element to this series and the audience sometimes learned something by the end of the show. This series launched the careers of Lisa Bonet and Kadeem Hardison. The chemistry within the cast was awesome.
