She played Mary Jenkins, a housewife who lived with her contractor husband, Lester and their 14-year-old daughter Brenda. Mary's best friend was Rose Lee Holloway, who used to sit out with her on the stoop of the apartment building (#227) and discuss many things, especially Sandra Clark, the wise-cracking, hyperactive, and often scatter-brained woman from upstairs. Rose had a daughter named Tiffany. Next door to the Jenkins was the gossipping, yet loving, Pearl Shay, a crotchety busybody who lived with her grandson Calvin Dobbs, who was Brenda's first love. Throughout the final two seasons, several new characters appeared.

    Theme Song
    There's no place like home.
    With your family around you, you're never alone.
    When you know that your loved,
    You don't need to roam,
    Cause there's no place like home

    Time's are changing everyday.
    We won't get by with the same old ways (Oh, no!).
    Pulling together will make it right.
    With help from are friends I know we'll get by,

    Cause there's no place like home.
    With your family around you you're never alone.
    When you know that your loved,
    You don't need to roam.
    Cause there ain't no place like,
    (Better believe it)
    There ain't no place like
    (Better believe it)
    Cause there ain't no place like,
    There's no place like home!

    "I mean no place child".

Every episode somehow manages to blow my mind in new and exciting ways, and the show always remains fresh. The characters are each unique and amazing, the overall story is unmatched in modern television (likely all-time television), and the individual plot lines for the episodes are outstanding. Once I discovered this show, I stopped watching all other TV shows, because no other show can make me feel the things I do watching this one. I've yet to find a single flaw in any of the 30 amazing episodes of this series, thus I give 227 a 10/10. Not even a question. Expand
