Throwback Thursday-Hanging With Mr. Cooper

In the 1970’s, Three’s Company introduced to audiences the idea of a single straight guy living with two women.

In the 1990’s, that premise was given a new twist with Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper (1992-1997).

Mark Cooper (Mark Curry) used to play in the NBA. Now his professional role is substitute teacher/gym coach. When he goes home, Mark spends time with his female roommates Robin Dunmars (Dawnn Lewis) and Vanessa Russell (Holly Robinson-Peete). When the cost staying in their rented house becomes too great for the three of them, Mark’s cousin, Geneva Lee (Sandra Quarterman) and her young daughter Nicole (Raven-Symone) join the household. Needing some additional testosterone, Tyler Foster (Marquise Wilson) was added in the second season as the pesky kid next door who is always dropping by.

While the initial premise might have been taken from Three’s Company, this show had a 90’s twist that made it enjoyable for five seasons.

Do I recommend it? For old times sake, perhaps.
