I must admit that A DIFFERENT WORLD started relatively bland and humourless, mainly because the producers were trying to make a predominantly black college experience acceptable to a "mainstream" audience.

The early episodes of this sitcom were bland, as they focused on Denise Huxtable's (Lisa Bonet) experiences at Hillman College.

This was a really terrific show it was kind of lame in the first season, but once they got rid of dull Denise it was better.

Despite the fact that I've never seen every episode, I still enjoyed it.

In the first season (the only one with Denise in it) the show was kinda boring and average.

I tuned in day after day, week after week, with my "record" button beneath my poised fingers to watch this wildly entertaining and enigmatic character take shape.

NBC made a mistake during the last season of the show by confusing the audience.

It was fascinating to watch what Debbie Allen and Bill Cosby did to improve the additional seasons of the show and take on everything from racism to Black Greek life to elitism to black history to relationships.

It seemed more of a bad free-form type of program that had no plot, rhyme, reason, or lasting message.

I would have stopped watching the show if she had married the senator, they were boring.
