    Premise: Lives of students at Hillman College, a historically black college
    Bonet left after the first season when she became pregnant, forcing a major revamping of the show.
    In season two, the two main white characters were also written out.
    The producers had to come up with various excuses to keep the main characters hanging around Hillman after their graduation.
    Dwayne Wayne wore those stupid flip-up glasses.
    After Debbie Allen became a producer in season two, she drew on her experiences at Howard University to have the show reflect social and political life at a historically black university.
    The Hollywood Reporter said Allen transformed the show 'from a bland Cosby spin-off into a lively, socially responsible, ensemble situation comedy.'
    It was the top-rated series in African-American households four of its six seasons.
    It won an Image Award as outstanding comedy series (1991).
