Added DiffLines:

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Dwayne comes across as a borderline abusive jerk. Granted, Whitley could be very bitchy and annoying, but nearly all of the things he did to break her out of that were downright cruel--forcing her to not speak for a whole day because he's tired of her incessant yammering? The first thing she said when she could talk again should have been, "It's over."

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Dwayne's mother. While there's no denying that Whitley is incredibly rude to her when they first meet, having mistaken her for a housekeeper, she is just as rude in return. Whitley profusely and sincerely tries to apologize for her actions and she responds by rolling her eyes, ''right in her face'', and she is consistently nasty to her throughout the remainder of the show's tenure, despite the fact that Whitley is conversely consistently nice to her in an effort to make amends. It's gets particularly ugly after Dwayne and Whitley marry, when she sends them ''a funeral wreath'', and according to Dwayne, hangs up on him everytime he calls.

** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: On the same token, the show was also praised for tackling issues that its fellow sitcoms (including its own parent show) wouldn't touch.



* StrangledByTheRedString: Ron's romances with Kim, and later Freddie, both of which came out of nowhere with zero hint of a previous attraction between Ron and either woman. In particular, he and Freddie couldn't stand each other (this was NOT an example of BelligerentSexualTension), yet suddenly couldn't keep their hands off each other--at a time when he was involved with Kim!
** Maybe not out of nowhere. Ron began to realize his attraction to Kim when she began dating Matthew, getting more jealous than either of them expected. Kim didn't dump Matthew for Ron either. That relationship had to dissolve on its' own. As for Freddie, when they were stuck at the radio station during the hurricane, their walls came down long enough for them to find common ground, even sharing a kiss. This was almost a full season before they start messing around, and about six episodes before Ron and Kim even get serious.

to:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: RomanticFalseLead Kinu. The viewer is supposed to hate her as she's an obstacle to Dwayne and Whitley getting together, and she does in fact get nastier as time goes on. But who can blame her with her boyfriend blatantly ogling and drooling over another woman who's constantly hanging around and trying to interfere in their relationship? As bitchy as she gets, she never says or does anything to harm Whitley, she just wants her to leave them alone.

* ContractualPurity: Lisa Bonet.

to:

* ContractualPurity: Lisa Bonet. She was written out of the show due to her pregnancy. At first, Debbie Allen wanted to include it, but Bill Cosby stated unequivocally that while Lisa Bonet could be pregnant, Denise Huxtable would ''not'' be pregnant out of wedlock. Cue her dropping out, moving back home and taking a year off ''both'' shows while exploring the jungle.
