You knew exactly what time it was when Aretha Franklin proudly proclaimed, “I know my parents love me! Stand behind me come what may.”At the sound of her soulful cry we didn’t just walk to the TV, we ran!
“A Different World” wasn’t just a spin-off of The Cosby Show, it was a series that continuously peeled back the layers on important issues in the lives of young people in our society, and was just simply a well-written, entertaining program. As a huge fan, I’ve seen most episodes of the show, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites. Feel free to share your own!
Rudy and The Snow Queen (Season 1 Episode 6)
Who wouldn’t want Denise Huxtable as an older sister? Better yet, who wouldn’t want Whitley Gilbert as one as well? In this episode from the first season (you know, when Denise went to Hillman) Rudy tries to have the best of both worlds, but in the end, realizes there’s no sibling bond stronger than that of the Huxtables.
