4.0 out of 5 stars Girlfriends, there through thick and thin October 31, 2010
By rmcrae
Debuting on the former UPN network in the fall of 2000, Girlfriends chronicled the comedic highs and dramatic lows of four successful black women living in Los Angeles.

Joan Clayton (Tracee Ellis Ross, daughter of the legendary diva Diana Ross) is a sweet, although at times neurotic, lawyer dealing with relationship problems, but is always there for her friends when they need her. Maya Wilkes (Golden Brooks) is Joan's sassy friend and assistant who isn't afraid to speak her mind with some great one-liners.

Toni Childs (Jill Marie Jones) is Joan's childhood friend who grew up in a poor Fresno (the trapdoor to hell, as she calls it) family, but is now a wealthy and snobby real estate agent. Lynn Searcy (Persia White), Joan and Toni's former college roommate, is a free spirit always looking for a couch to crash on. She's got several degrees, but the girl's allergic to getting a job. William Dent (Reggie Hayes), the only male friend aka "honorary girlfriend", also works at Joan's firm and keeps everybody laughing with his dry wit and love for girl on girl action. Don't ask.

Would you believe Kelsey Grammar was the executive producer of the show? My mouth dropped open in surprise when I learned that. Go 'head, Frasier! The things I enjoyed the most about the show were the interactions between the friends. Each of them had their flaws (Toni's self-absorption and materialism in particular), but they still possessed likeable qualities.

Joan always overanalyzed things in her friend and romantic relationships (not to mention she could be a total spaz at times), but it's clear that she has a good heart and only wants the best for everybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous - shame it ended ! December 11, 2009
By JAM401
At last......
this fantastic TV series is available to buy as a complete boxset.

I've laughed out loud with the girls and cried too as they've gone through life's ups and downs.

Loved all the main characters (Monica was a particular joy!), they blended so well together.

Shame it had to end.

I've been waiting for this boxset ever since the release of the 4th season. I was sooooooooooooo happy to see this boxset being released the same day as the 8th season being released. This show is absolutely great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Final Season Not Included... June 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
The DVDs are good but there is a little skipping in some of them and the 8th Season is not included in the Complete Girlfriend Series collection. Also the title that reads on the DVD player for the DVDs says "Golden Girls" so I am not sure if the DVDs were recorded over other DVDs. I wish I had known that the complete season was not in the package or I would have contouned looking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a television series May 1, 2013
By A.K.
Verified Purchase
I actually want to rate this 4.5 stars due to errors on two of my discs. I believe that to be a manufacturer's defect. On to the review:

What's funny is that this show was supposed to be the all-Black answer to "Sex and the City". It quickly became a force to be reckoned with all on its own. The four lead actresses Tracee Ellis Ross (Joan), Golden Brooks (Maya), Persia White (Lynn), and Jill Marie Jones (Toni) are great all throughout. They're sexy, stylish, intelligent, ambitious, educated...and flawed. And it's the flaws in each of their characters, portrayed so wonderfully through smart and witty writing, that sets this show apart from its "competition". Issues that are unique to the African-American experience give this show a layer that blends well with the comedy and inevitable drama.

Another tidbit: unlike the girls from SATC, we see where these women have gotten their education and are able to afford their lifestyles, extravagant and otherwise. We see them go through economical highs and lows, and career changes--very realistic. SATC, on the other hand, not so much. How DOES Carrie Bradshaw manage to have several pairs of Manolo Blahnik shoes? Own an apartment on, I believe, the East side of Manhattan? All by writing a weekly newspaper column? Gimme a break! Is that part of the reason she was so attached to John Preston, going as far to refer to him as "Mr. Big"? I'm just saying...

Unfortunately, this show "jumped the shark" after the 6th season, when Jill Marie Jones departed from the series. Like any ensemble, the show lost a bit of its heart when she left. The character of Toni and her entire story arc was crucial to the show, and Jones was beautiful and charismatic.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved the DVD set of Girlfriends July 8, 2014
By Shola
Verified Purchase
I loved the DVD set of Girlfriends. The television series was truly comparable to my life in my thirties. Mara Brock Akil truly knows that African-American woman in her thirties strive to be successful, ambitious, vulnerable, intelligent and willing to go there with others. But at the same time capturing that African-American women want to have it all just like their Caucasian/Sex in the City sisters.

I bought this for my wife who loves the series and was upset when it went of the air after eight seasons. She is in heaven watching many of the early episodes from the first few seasons that she never saw before. Her words; "It was simply one of the best sitcoms on TV. It's like the black version of Sex and The City.
