After sharing that the shows are heading to Netflix and noting how important they were as Black-led sitcoms, the actors reminisce about some of the most memorable moments from the series.
Ross talks about “Joan surprising William in his new house” on Girlfriends. “I was dressed up as Spider-Man and I was hanging from his ceiling swinging,” she says.
Jackson shares the moment on Moesha when “Niecy kissed Hakeem, which I don’t approve of, but it happened.”
