Trivia

In an episode where Max's ex-boyfriend comes over for dinner with his new girlfriend, Regine tells the woman that she looks familiar and asks what school she attended. She replies "Eastland" boarding school, and Regine says, "Hmm, never heard of it," while looking towards the camera. This is a reference to actress Kim Fields's role on the sitcom The Facts of Life (1979), which is set at the fictitious "Eastland School for Girls." See more »

Quotes

Khadijah: [to Regine] Look, you're gonna have a hard time finding "the one." You're a snob from the projects! Believe me, that's rare.

Living Single on DVD!
10 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first season of Living Single is finally finally on DVD! I'm so excited, I already ordered it off Amazon. Hope you all are enjoying it too.

Also has anybody noticed how many random cast connections there are between this show and A Different World? I swear, I've counted like eight. There's Cree Summer who was Freddie on ADW as Summer the girl Overton dates right before he and Synclaire get together; Charnele Brown (Kim Reese) as Khadijah's friend who works at Flava and then wants to tattoo permanent makeup for a living; Jasmine Guy (Whitley Gilbert) played a psychologist that Khadijah's goes to see when she's way over-stressed; and Kadeem Harrison (Dwayne Wayne) is a hotshot reporter that tries to beat Kadijah out for the scoop on this fighter who pays off his opponents. Also the adorable, but pathetic Ivan Ennis is Bumper Robinson who played Dorian Haywood (the guy who wouldn't get with Jada Pinkett Smith's Lena unless they were married) I could go on and on .........

See how many you can count!

~ Smooches ~

"I laughed, I cried and when you opened that coffin, girl, I damn near died!" - Overton after seeing Synclaire perform in The Calling Hours or (as it was renamed) A Funny Thing Happened on the Way To The Funeral...starring Synclaire James!
