Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
This suburban sitcom centers on three couples minus children, aka DINKs (double income, no kids). Onscreen labels are superimposed to define just where each couple is in its relationship: "The Veterans" are Sheri (Dedee Pfeiffer), who does facials, and architect Dean (D.W. Moffett), married for five years, in upscale Oak Park, Illinois. "The Newlyweds" are attorney Mel (James Lesure) and psychiatrist Malena (Holly Robinson Peete), who thinks she might be pregnant one month after marriage. The unmarried "Commitment-Phobics" are divorced teacher Bobbie (Tamala Jones) and restaurateur Reggie (Edafe Blackmon), Mel's brother, who doesn't want to give Bobbi the keys to his lakefront pad. It's mostly lovey-dovey, sweetness and light, as they all interact, interrelate, and confront life's little crises with an endless onslaught of half-hearted one-liners. Premiered March 17,1998 on NBC.
