Martin has reruns beginning this upcoming Monday on...I kid you not...MTV2. Mid morning Mon-Fri I think, just google it or check your MTV 2 channel.

Fresh Prince

The Jamie Foxx Show (back when Jamie Foxx was good)
Hangin' w/ Mr. Cooper
The Jeffersons
Sanford & Son
Smart Guy
The Wayans

seems like there was more variety and better shows with all black casts back in the day. most of the stuff now is all Tyler Perry crap. although that new show from Ice Cube does have its moments and it's thank in large part to Terry Crew, LOL. that guy is awesome!

Forgot about Jamie Foxx and The Steve Harvey Show (I really liked both) and Smart Guy and All of Us (Man, LisaRaye and Elise Neal together, that was enough for me). Another decent one was My Wife and Kids.

some shows that need to be put on DVD sets or compilations-- Flip Wilson, That's My Mama, Baby I'm Back, Frank's Place, He's the Mayor, Bustin' Loose..

with all the nostalgia going on for certain shows, i'm surprised that none of them have had attempts to do new versions..


...was there ever a cable TV series or TV-movie in the 90s about a black family who were all wizards?
