Flashback Friday-90’s Television Siblings- Sister,Sister (1994-1999) & Smart Guy (1997-1999)

Hollywood is known for it’s acting dynasties.

In 1990’s, the Mowry’s were a part of the television landscape.

Between 1994 & 1999, elder sisters, Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry- Housley starred in Sister, Sister.  Tia Landry (Tia Mowry-Hardrict) and Tamera Campbell (Tamera Mowry Housley) are twin sisters who are adopted separately and raised to think that they are an only child. Meeting as teenagers, their adopted parents agree to move in together to raise their daughters. Type A Ray Campbell (Tim Reid) and fashion addict Lisa Landry (Jackee Harry) don’t quite get along, but they try, for their daughter’s sake. Add in Marques Houston as Roger Evans, the annoying boy next door who never really gets the message that his attention is unwanted.

In 1997 it was little brother Tahj’s turn. Between 1997 & 1999, he starred in Smart Guy. T.J is a preteen whose intelligence is well above his peers.  Quickly advancing to high school, his presence is annoying to his older siblings Marcus (Jason Weaver) and Tasha (Essence Atkins).

The only thing I can say about these shows is that they are very late 90’s.  Both were interesting, but unlike other shows that transcend the era that the it was filmed in, both shows are stuck in the late 90’s.

Do I recommend them? Yes, if only for nostalgia’s sake.
