Think of it as ''Series/{{Friends}}'' before ''Friends'' ever existed.

''Living Single'' is a sitcom that ran from 1993 to 1998, beginning a year before ''Friends''. It featured an ensemble cast of New York twentysomethings living in the middle-class Park Slope section of Brooklyn. The one obvious distinction is that the cast was African-American, but the audience was never hit over the head with it (too hard). The show gained points for showing Blacks succeeding in corporate America, from law to stocks to entrepreneurship.

** What turns this into a behind-the-scenes CrowningMomentOfAwesome is that Queen Latifah vetoed '''every''' attempt on the part of the writers to make jokes or storylines about Synclaire's (Kim Coles) weight gain over the course of the series.

One of the show's main draws was its realistic depiction of women. The show passes the UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest with flying colors, the ladies have a varying range of body types, and it's never a [[HollywoodHomely plot point.]] The two male characters live next door, and while they're seen as annoying at first, they soon develop friendships with the women and eventually romance.

* OddCouple: Regine and Tripp (as Khadijah remained impartial between them), Regine is feminine, snobbish, and uptight while Tripp is a laid-back stereotypical bachelor/homeboy.
