    As a fan of all things sitcoms, I was happy this show came about.
    Mary was a very good mother, even if she was overprotective towards her daughter Brenda.
    Lester was a loving and supporting husband who basically ran his own company.
    Her friends were great.
    Rose as the man hungry yet shy woman, Pearl as the wise old yet funny woman and Sandra as the man hungry not so shy woman rounded out the show.
    And who could forget Calvin, the hearthrob of the show that never was given a chance to truly develop.
    They dealt with problems and showed strong values when some shows strayed away from it.
    Unlike The Cosby Show, 227 did not mind talking about church and going to church or paticapating in church.
    This show was a personal favorite of mine, that has yet to be matched in the black family sitcom era.
    I miss this show alot and am very angry that only Season 1 is out on dvd.
