Guys, I have a confession to make.
After binge-watching the same five TV shows for months, I completely ignored my list of new recommendations and moved on to an old sitcom that most people have never seen or heard of. Critics have called it "uninspired" and "somewhat stale." And currently, the short-lived series has a 33 percent score on the Tomatometer—but after watching it for myself, I’d say that this sitcom is a highly underrated gem. What show is this, you ask?
Allow me to introduce you to the ‘90s sitcom, Between Brothers (or as I like to call it, the remixed version of Living Single). Set in Chicago, the show centers on four middle-class Black men in their twenties. The tight-knit group includes sports writer Charles Winston (Kadeem Hardison), his playboy brother, James Winston (Dondré T. Whitfield), their freeloading friend, Mitchell Ford (Tommy Davidson), and meteorologist Dusty Canyon (Kelly Perine). While these men have very different personalities, they consistently support each other as they deal with the challenges of their personal and professional lives.
Since there are only two seasons, I flew through the entire series in less than a week. From the stellar casting to the laugh-out-loud moments, I genuinely feel like this show deserves a lot more credit. Read on to see why.
