*Clears throat* “We are liviiiing, single…oooooh in a ’90s kind of world, I’m glad I got my girls! Keep ya head up WHAT! Keep ya head–”
Okay, you get it. I’m sure you know the intro song to one of the best black TV comedies of the ’90s, “Living Single.” It had all the right qualities to stay stuck in your mind, from the glimpse of Brooklyn, to the dancing lady working it in the background and all the colors. I loved it. And that’s just one of many things that I loved about the show, but the biggest thing that stuck with me were the characters. They were successful, silly AND single folks doing it big in NYC and every Thursday on FOX, you could find me and thousands of other people watching. But the show has been kaput for almost 15 years, so where is the cast now?
