1 I think the show JTS when Toni and Todd got married. It just seem totally out of character for Toni to marry a dude like Todd. I know he was a doctor, but still, they had like zero chemistry and Toni is too shallow to have married a dude that short and corny. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 1, 2014, 6:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 I realize that Los Angeles must be different from the rest of the world, but the Girlfriends cast needs to get a reality check. You can't treat people the way they treat each other and still hang out with them. Maya calling everyone bitch, Joan harping and moralizing, Toni's spoiled ass demanding everything from her husband and not spending her "Not Going Back to Fresno" ($250,000!!!!) fund to help get them out of debt. (BTW, according to the show, he doesn't even know she has an account with that amount in it...) Lynn is a slutty, lazy idiot who spent a whole season with one guy who wouldn't sleep with her (good for him!) and another season with a guy SHE had to support (good for him!). When Lynn's not slutting around, she's mooching off each of her friends--the running joke is "Who's going to take Lynn?" What is she, five? They all back-stab each other: Toni telling the boss that Joan's boyfriend is a sex addict, Joan telling Toni's boyfriend that Toni cheated, all of them not speaking to each other for months over dumb crap that normal people talk through. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 1, 2014, 6:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Soooooo Joan, Lynn, and Maya bust up William's marriage (not once, but TWICE) and then they act like all is well? They just frolick on as if nothing happened and as if they didn't ruin their friend's marriage (and I am using the term "friend" loosely, because they act more like enemies). They don't even notice til after a couple of months that William isn't even speaking to them. Then they're just nonchalant like it isn't a big deal and like William is wrong for being mad. Wow. "Girlfriends" indeed! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 1, 2014, 6:14 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Wtf is with the girls announcing that they're black every 5 seconds? We know you're black (and two of you are biracial) so unless viewers are blind, we don't need you reminding us every other minute! All that aside, how could Maya act so incredibly ghetto and dress like she's going out to the club when she's an executive assistant in corporate America? Swedleson never said anything, it's like he didn't even notice that Maya worked there! When Peaches became Joan's assistant, nobody at the law firm seemed to notice that either. Wtf? And Lynn is supposed to be smart but is a bum bitch who can't even afford her own lunch. The "Lynn is a broke ho" jokes got old real quick. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 1, 2014, 6:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Joan and Davis had the best chemistry in my opinion. I hated when she decided she just wanted to be friends. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 1, 2014, 6:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Monica is annoying. I don't know what the hell the writers were thinking when putting her in more episodes. Wait, yes I do, they thought that maybe the viewers would be too dumb to notice that they were trying to use her to fill Toni's spot. News flash, you can't introduce Monica to us as being this evil golddigger villian who seduced William and hates all the Girlfriends, then 3 seasons later expect everybody to just embrace her like she's been their homegirl since Day 1. WTF? "Let's make Joan and Monica suddenly become BFF's! Since Toni's gone, they'll suddenly be pals!" -- Submitted By: () on September 1, 2014, 3:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I got annoyed when Joan used to say stuff like, "Why do you guys have to give white people something to talk about?" Umm, HELLO, you're HALF white!!! Wtf? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 1, 2014, 1:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 The first Jabari looked and seemed like he actually could've been Maya and Darnell's son. Them replacing him was kind of random and didn't mesh well. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 1, 2014, 1:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

11 Why did everybody get all mad at William for not dressing up like Santa for Jabari?? First of all, Jabari was getting a little too damn old to be still believing in Santa Claus ANYWAY. He was like 9 or something. Secondly, last time I checked, William is NOT Jabari's dad! Darnell is! So why didn't Darnell do it? Why didn't they get mad at Darnell instead of William? They didn't speak to William for like 2 episodes because of that mess. If I was William I wouldn't have apologized. What was he supposed to say, "Sorry I had better shit to do on Christmas Eve"? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 11:33 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
12 On what planet can you call your boss a bitch (to their face) and not get fired? Or not show up to work because your gay cousin Ronnie had to do your extensions? Maybe in the Girlfriends universe, this is normal, but in real life, Maya would have gotten her ass fired from the law firm after like 3 days. Let's be real, even though Joan was Maya's friend, she was still her BOSS. What kind of secretary just gets up and leaves her desk all the time, leaving the phone unattended, and nobody says shit? Joan just cracks a smile or invites her into her office to talk about Toni or William. Come to think of it, both Maya and Joan would have been fired in real life. I don't know any law firms that allow the employees to just hang out in the office with the door shut all day gossiping about men, or to randomly leave work early to go confront people at Japanese restaurants. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 11:29 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
13 The show was at it's best during Seasons 2-4. Season 1 is great in it's own right, but the cast and writers were trying to navigate and establish the personalities of the actresses. It's above average though. In Season 2, we started to get a feel of who the girls were and the construction of the situations and the writing improved even more. It was very realistic, easy to relate to, and was less heavy handed than Season 1. The Season 2 episode where Darnell finds out about Stan and gets emotional is definitely one of the best scenes of the entire show. The show remained great up until the end of Season 6, when Toni left. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 11:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 The show is called "Girlfriends", not "Joan and Friends", so why the hell was everything (weddings, births, ceremonies, celebration dinners, parties, baby showers, etc) always held at Joan's house??? I know Joan is supposed to be the "motherly" one of the group, but why couldn't they ever have dinner at one of the other girl's house for a change? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 11:11 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 One of the funniest episodes is "He Loves Her, He Loves Me Not", the one where Donna (Jill Scott) meets the girlfriends and has dinner with them and sees how well Joan and William get along (had their own inside jokes, lingo etc) and Donna feels that William is in love with Joan but he just doesn't know it yet. After Donna is all weirded out by Joan and William's Cinco de Mayo songs ("what the hell is going on?!?") on the ride home she tells William that he's in love with Joan. William denies it all throughout the episode, which was pretty realistic. But then, a few episodes later, he suddenly concludes he IS in love with her. This led to William dating Joan which should have NEVER happened. And how do you just decide you love somebody just because somebody else says you are?? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 11:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 What the hell was up with all the blatant Chili's product placement in the last couple of seasons? I realize that Chili's was probably a Girlfriends sponsor, but at least make the placement be kind of subtle and not so obvious! "Darnell, where are you? I can't wait to see you. Do you have my Chili's baby back ribs?" "Jabari, stop! You gonna make me spill my Presidente Margarita! You know I don't play about my Chili's!" And every time they went out to eat in the last season, it was at Chili's. Was it the only restaurant in Lancaster?? I like Chili's as much as the next guy, but it was getting ridiculous. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 11:00 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Definitely jumped the shark when Toni left (which was at the end of Season 6). The Season 6 finale was actually very good. It was a change of pace, and had a big twist at the end. But Season 7 was bland, boring, pointless, etc and so was Season 8 because Toni was gone, and as a result, the balance of the girls was thrown off. When JMJ left the show, it made you realize just how annoying Joan really was, and just how pointless Lynn's character had really become. It also made you realize that even though Toni's character was shallow, selfish, materialistic etc she was still entertaining and that the show began to sink without her. Girlfriends suddenly seemed like a totally different show (and NOT in a good way). -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 10:55 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
18 There is no way Maya could go around calling everyone "bitch" so nonchalantly in real life. Calling someone a bitch in front of your son. REAL classy. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 10:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 At least FOUR characters from Family Matters made an appearance on Girlfriends (Waldo/Peaches, Laura/Sicily, Harriet as Lynn's stepmother, Eddie/Antwan). I had no problem with this, I'm just glad that Urkel never showed up on Joan's doorstep or I would have never watched again. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
20 The episode where Joan quits the law firm and then goes to work at Wienercycle (corn dog place in a food court) is hilarious, especially the jokes about how Joan looked like Cat in the Hat in their uniform. But it was very stupid of Joan to do. How could she act so pretentious and all-knowing, but pull a stunt like that? If you're supposed to be the Mother Hen of the group, then ACT like it. Who quits a prestigious law firm to work at a fast food place in the mall. Then she began sitting around the house, with her hair uncombed, in a big bathrobe and slippers, and oversized Peabody glasses, trying to give out advice to people. She sounded ridiculous giving out "nuggets of wisdom" when her own life was so fucked up. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
