Product Description

Living Single: The Complete First Season (DVD)

Best friends and "sista-girls", this group of seemingly mismatched women have found the recipe for twenty-something happiness. Enjoy all 27 Season One episodes (plus terrific Bonus Featurette) of the comedy series about four fly women living large and living single. From " round the way" to "Rodeo Drive", Regine (Kim Fields) has a new look (and a new man!) for every occasion. Hard-nosed attorney Maxine Shaw (Erika Alexander) has an appetite for winning, both in and out of the courtroom. Sweet cousin Synclaire (Kim Coles), legendary for both her charm...and her naivete. And rounding out the crew is Khadijah James (Queen Latifah), a burgeoning entrepreneur who holds Flavor Magazine, and the household, together. Smart, sassy and single --- now that's Living.


When it appeared on the Fox TV network in 1993, Living Single was one of the first sitcoms to portray the everyday doings of a group of African America friends living ordinary American lives. It also pretty much launched the acting career of rap artist Queen Latifah (who performed its theme song) before she moved onto a thriving profession as a movie star. The format was nothing new, but it quickly became a hit and ran for five successful seasons. The setting was the office of urban-lifestyle Flavor magazine, where Khadijah James (Latifah) was editor, and the New York apartment Khadijah shared with roommates Synclaire (Kim Coles) and Regine (Kim Fields). There were frequent drop-ins by Khadijah's friend Maxine (Erika Alexander) and the duo of bickering best-friends from the apartment upstairs Kyle (Terrence T.C. Carson) and Overton (John Henton). From that formulaic setup came the good-natured storylines that allowed for plenty of Friends-like repartee (although Friends didn't premiere until the next year). It was also a little Seineld-like (which was just hitting stride in 1993), except that Living Single did not adhere to Seinfeld's "no hugging, no learning" policy. In episodes with titles like "Crappy Birthday," "Whose Date Is It Anyway," "Fatal Distraction," and "A Tale of Two Tattles," Khadijah and company engaged in familiar sitcom ensemble wise-cracking, back-stabbing, name-calling, and grudge-holding that elicited plenty of "WOOOOO!" responses from the studio audience, but everyone always went back to being supportive pals for the denouements. The series made it clear that Latifah was a charismatic and charmingly telegenic personality who had no problem sharing screen time with her co-stars. The bickering is most fun in episodes heavy on scenes between the gossip queen Regine and the upscale, quick-witted lawyer Maxine. The Ralph Kramden/Ed Norton dynamic between Overton and Kyle also makes for lively sitcom chemistry. There's no episode commentary on this first season, 27-episode four-disc set. The only extra is a 13-minute documentary, "How Ya Livin'? Season one of Living Single," which features new interviews with series creator Yvette Lee Bowser and some of the cast members (but not Queen Latifah). --Ted Fry

This is one of my favorite tv shows. It's centered around four single women and two single men, all in their twenties, who happen to be childless. I'm ecstatic by the release of this dvd. If only we can get Martin released on dvd....

Living Single was one of my favorite shows when it used to come on FOX and I'm so excited it came out Season 1 has been released on DVD. Living Single was such a positive depiction of African Americans. You had goal oriented people who were trying to live life in the city. Dealing with career challenges, and relationships. It was a show anyone could relate to regardless of race. This show had such a wonderful cast that had awesome chemistry. Erika Alexander as Attorney Maxine Shaw, Kim Fields as the Diva Regine, Kim Coles as the dense, but very funny Synclaire James cousin of Kadijah played by Queen Latifah. T.C. Carson as the suave ladies man Kyle, and John Henton as the handyman Overton who is in love with Synclaire. What I liked about the show is the women with the exception of Maxine were not skinny women. Kadijah always wore nice outfits to the office and looked nice when she dressed casual and even though she was an average sized woman, had no problem dating. I really liked that.

Kadijah was owner of Flava Magazine, and Synclaire worked with her as the office assistant. One of my favorite episodes is when Synclaire runs the office while Kadijah is out sick. Despite everything that happened she managed to get that Shoe La La account. Kyle works in the finance industry, and even though it's not mentioned a lot, there was one episode that showed his desire to move up in the company, and his willingness to play poker with his coworkers. Regine worked, but she was really known for her outfits, her wigs, and her love life. First episode found her dealing with the fact she was dating a married man, then another episode had her dating a man that had a young daughter.

I loved the interaction between Kyle and Maxine.

The first season of Living Single is now available on DVD for the very first time. Living Single premiered on the Fox Television Network in late 1993. The show aired immediately after Martin. The show became an instant hit sandwiched in between Martin and New York Undercover.

The first season DVD set includes all 27 episodes from the shows first season. The packaging is very colorful and impressive. It's really a great set. Living Single airs in syndication all over the world. The first season quickly introduced the world to the ensemble cast. Queen Latifah starred as Kadijah, a magazine publisher. Kim Fields starred on the show as Regine. Regine was also a career woman, but her character was best known for her love life and her ever changing wigs. Ericka Alexander starred as Max, a successful lawyer, and Kim Coles starred as Kadijah's cousin Synclaire. The four working class women were kept company by their neighbors Kyle and Overton--who in later seasons would become love interests to women in the cast.

Living Single was the first successful show about a group of working class, educated black women. In addition to the 27 season one episodes the DVD box set also includes a featurette titled "How Ya Living" Season One of Living Single. This featurette includes all of the shows cast members-with the exception of Queen Latifah. One can assume that she was too busy, but her absence in the featurette is not explained. It's a nice short featurette in which the shows creator Yvette Lee Bowser and the cast discuss the show.

Living Single-The Complete First Season is a very satisfying release and fans of the show will be pleased with this release.
