Half & Half

Show Summary

Half & Half stars Essence Atkins and Rachel True as half-sisters Mona and Dee Dee who have only one thing in common: their father. Growing up separately, these two virtual strangers suddenly become neighbors in the same San Francisco apartment building and experience the challenges of sisterhood for the first time.

Mona, a budding music executive, was raised by her single mother, Phyllis, to be an independent woman who does things in her own free-spirited and sometimes sardonic By contrast, younger sister Dee Dee is a privileged honor-roll college student who grew up in a two-parent home, but searches for her own identity out of the shadow of her overbearing mother, Big Dee Dee.

Now in their twenties, these two vastly contrasting women are discovering the advantages and joys that the special bond of sisterhood offers. But their relationship is not without its problems, as they often clash on everything from morals to money to men. Meanwhile, Spencer, Mona's best friend, becomes the conscience of the group and helps build a bridge between the women.moreless

    I loved this show so much, I even got the opportunity to meet Spencer when he stayed at the Embassy Suites on the Parkway in even checked him in. He is so handsome and such a Gentleman.
  • I love them all

    I love, love, love, love this show! Very rarely have I enjoyed a show where I truly love every character! They each have their own quirky little ways, and collaboratively they are hilarious.
  • Funny and independent!

    Each role is extreme and different, the scenes are random so you can't really expect what's going to happen next until you watch, and the show itself is something fresh to the table of tv. That's why I watched! A great comedy...
  • Great show, not the same old family routine.

    9.5
    I didn't get hooked on this show until the past year. Our local CBS station runs it at 2am. I started watching it when I was up that late. (I am a night person). I was hooked and watch it every night. It is well written and the actors are spot on.



    The first time through, I was waiting to see who Mona chose, and thought I must of missed one. Later I realized that it had been the last show. How dare they leave us hanging. I thought maybe she finally saw it light as was calling Spencer. It would have been a great ending, they should have taped one.



    I now have my husband hooked on the show. We are also watching the new show from the movie "Are We There Yet?". It stars Essence Atkins (Dee Dee) with Terry Crews(Everybody Hates Chris) with Telma Hopkins (Phyllis) playing his mother. It has been renewed for the fall. It started slow but has great potential.moreless
  • Talented group of comedic actors!

    I just discovered this show a year after it stopped airing. I didn't have UPN, so I never even knew about it. I now watch it on a local FOX station, and I absolutely love it! I love all of the characters, especially Mona, Adam, and Big Dee Dee. Spencer is so cute and funny! I can't believe I missed out on such a great show for almost four years! If there are episodes available on DVD to purchase I would love to buy a box set containing each and every episode, because I haven't had the pleasure to see them all! I wish Rachel True was staring on a new show. She is such a talented comedic actress.moreless
