Product Description

GIRLFRIENDS is a sophisticated comedy series that invites viewers into the lives of four professional African American women living in Los Angeles who are struggling with the weighty issues of life - men, love, money -- and more men. As they search for happiness in all its elusive forms, the four girlfriends rely on each other for support, reality checks, advice and for the laughter that everyone needs to make it in this crazy place we call the modern world.

Amazon.com

Like Sex & the City, Living Single, and Friends, Girlfriends focuses on a group of best pals whose lives are forever intertwined, for better or for worse. On the first season of Girlfriends--which aired during 2000-2001--we are introduced to a comely group of women. There's Joan (Tracee Ellis Ross, daughter of Diana Ross), a sensible attorney who's unlucky in love; her sassy assistant Maya (Golden Brooks); Joan's happy-go-lucky roommate Lynn (Persia White); and their man-eating friend Toni (Jill Marie Jones). That the women are African American is incidental, because their stories are universal. The adore each other, but each is seeking love and validation, not that the two necessarily go hand in hand. While their escapades lead to many laughs, the writers include enough poignant moments that the show has some heart. Even when Toni goes on a date with Joan's ex--a major violation amongst any group of girlfriends--the women manage to work their issues out in a way that is realistic enough to be recognizable, but comedic enough that we laugh at their antics. The four-disc set includes all 22 episodes from its debut season, including "Never a Bridesmaid," in which Joan and Maya collaborate to coordinate a wedding together. Executive produced by Kelsey Grammer (Frasier, Cheers), the sitcom is smart and well cast. There is genuine chemistry between the four leads, and Reggie Hayes has wonderful comic timing as their much-put upon best male friend William. Ross, who shares her mother's fine-boned beauty, proves to be deceptively good with physical comedy. That she is gorgeous is lost on Joan, who in real life would be working her looks to her utmost advantage. More than just girlfriends, Joan, Maya, Lynn, and Toni are great friends. --Jae-Ha Kim

For years now I've been out of touch with the "Girlfriends" TV show. For one, they kept moving it from Monday to some other day, then from one time to another, so I'd never know when to set the VCR. Whenever I could finally catch it, I'd never know what was going on, since "Girlfriends", like another show I'd like to see, "Providence", was serial in nature, in that it had a running story line. I finally gave up trying to watch it on TV, in fact, I've given up watching TV, period. However, I never really gave up wanting to just start over with the show, either through syndication or other means. I'm very happy then, that the DVD of the first season of "Girlfriends" is here at last.

I've just finished the first season through the four DVDs sent to me by Netflix rental. It left with quite the cliffhanger, giving me the feeling that things aren't going to be quite the same between the four women from here out. The writing for this show is great. It's about the lives of four black women of varying socioeconomic and marital status who have managed to forge a great relationship with each other: Attorney Joan, her best friend from childhood, Toni; their friend from college, Lynn; Joan's secretary Maya, and Joan's colleague William is there to offer the male perspective.

Tracee Ellis Ross, as Joan, is a fantastic comic actress; I love those segments where she thinks out loud to the audience! That she's the daughter of a show business legend makes for a good Jeopardy question, however the younger Ms. Ross has carved out a niche of her own as one of the new queens of comedy! And don't we all know people like Joan, the peacemaker who's always trying to fix someone's problems, with the best of intentions.

I absolutely LOVE this show! When it first aired I was thinking it was going to be a corny show with no substance. Usually shows that depict African American women are too stereotypical or they are totally unrealistic. This show gets it right FINALLY. I love Tracee Ellis Ross and the other actresses on this show because they keep it REAL. I knew Kelsey Grammer was a winner when I watched his show Frazier (another good sitcom) and I am pleased with his job as producer of an all black show. He has done an excellent job of portraying black women in a positive light which isn't always the case in Hollywood. Go Tracee, Golden, Persia, Jill Marie, and Reggie! This has been the best black show on television since the Cosby's and A Different World!!! Keep it coming!!!!

BTW-CW when are the REST of the seasons coming out? Don't make the fans wait too long!!!!!!

Although season 1 of Girlfriends was a tad off the mark, they were probably just going thru growing pains. They really hit the mark in seasons 2 thru 6. Why they took 6 years to start releasing the first DVD is puzzling to me. I started taping them about 2 years ago, but gave that up due to the bulkiness of vhs tapes. I will be ordering the season 1, and hopefully they will release the other seasons. If anyone finds out why they took 6 years to release Girlfriends on DVD please share it with us.

I had stumbled on to this show two years ago was surprised that it was accually funny. Usually I don't watch much tv shows because they are a cookie cutter of other shows on prime time. If I had seen one comedy or drama I had seen them all. I fell in love with this show because of the development of the characters (though the first season was off a bit), smart, and it's funny. This show is not the usual redundancy of prime time.

I agree w/ the other reviewers that the 1st season was a bit off. But, if you are a huge fan, I too suggest that you buy the 1st season. It will encourage Paramount to release the others. If you are not yet a fan, I'd still suggest getting it. It can be good background in case you have recently started watching it.

Finally, Paramount is releasing my favorite show in DVD!! I screamed out loud when I read the news. My friends and I pop popcorn and watch the show every week. It's the one of the few times of week we just get together and have fun. It's our weekly ritual. I suggest everyone buy this because then Paramount will release the other seasons. The first season wasn't the best, but buying it will be worth it to get the other ones. So go out and BUY IT!!! Because I will!!!

I called UPN (before it turned to the CW) almost every day and wrote email after email asking them to release the show on dvd and that by doing so it would make millions of fans around the world happy. After awhile I gave up because I kept getting the run around over the phone and stopped getting a reply from the emails I was sending. Then two days ago out the blue I decided to check out the website and to my surprise they finally decided to release it. I like to think that I (along with many other fans I'm sure) had a little something to do with this phenomenon. At last my fellow Girlfriends fans...victory is ours!
