Girlfriends is a sitcom which fluctuates in its entertainment value but gives you just enough to keep you watching. One of the worst parts of the show is that it has the ability to be great and offer up aspects you don’t usually see in an American sitcom and then it goes and throws in a mediocre dash of story writing which brings down the humor. The show bravely goes where other shows do not and it goes about dealing with serious issues with a smart dose of comedy. I was upset that the show was not smart enough to avoid double standards on issues such as race and sexism but again that is one of the smart aspects of the show, it does not try to fool you by creating a perfect world atmosphere.
