Spread the word: Netflix has secured the rights to stream some of the best black comedies of the 90’s and 2000’s, including my favorites Moesha. Sister Sisterand The Parkers, which I remember very well as a little girl. I still remember running to my room to turn on the TV and sing R&B themed songs for each show (they were so energetic and catchy that I memorized the lyrics word for word), and how wonderful it was to see TV comedies focused on my demographics. . There weren’t many black TV shows, with black female leaders dealing with things that focused on things I personally struggled with.
I was quite young when these three performances had their initial runs (I was born in 1995), but thanks to the repetitions during the 2000s, I had to meet them and why they were so loved by the audience who watched each show during their original I remember seeing elevations and bumpers Sister Sister when he was syndicated on the Disney Channel. I remember watching N (now TeenNick) Moesha, In 2009, BET was introduced The Parkers.

What resonated with me as he watched these performances was how much they focused on the things I was struggling with at that age. Sister Sister much focused on low self-esteem and insecurity; in one such episode, the twins joined an unpopular cheerleading team and were nervous about playing until their parents explained that they didn’t have to worry about what others thought.
One of my favorite episodes Moesha was when she got Saturn from her father, even though she wanted a Jeep. When I saw the exaggerated Moesha, I made myself realize that I had done the same; I always appreciated the things my mother bought me. The Parkers he also had an episode where a clown died in a mad accident and pulled his mother out of funk; I grew up many moments when I felt like the world had gotten me, or to be negligible, and it was a moment that counted your blessings. From time to time (especially today), this episode came to my mind because this report was conspired, even though the conspiracy of the episode was a little crazy. In my opinion, it also includes one of the most fun moments at the show:
This means so much to me that these shows are coming to Netflix in the coming months, because until now it was impossible for me to kiss them and spend my childhood. Sadly, not everyone will be available at once (Moesha debuts on August 1), but this gives me time to finish watching each session before the next one enters the service.
