The beloved UPN series starring Mo’Nique (Nikki) and Countess Vaughn (Kim) as a lovable mother-daughter duo attending college together was a hilarious HOOT with one of the longest running gags ever: Nikki chasing Professor Oglevee (played by Dorian Wilson) who curved her for SEASONS before falling for her at the very end.
For years, this was the running joke of all running jokes on the hit show that propped Stanley Oglevee up as THEE CATCH worth (literally) stalking but, uh, upon further review–16 years later–many fans of the show disagree as you’ll see on the flip side.
Netflix announced the show acquisition along with “Moesha” (Aug. 1), “The Game” (Aug. 15), “Girlfriends” (Sept. 11), and “Half & Half”/”One on One” (Oct. 15) in a viral reveal on social media.
“The goal of Strong Black Lead is to celebrate and lift up Black Hollywood. These trailblazing shows are a huge part of that story. From the classic clown episode of “The Parkers” to “Moesha”s mind-tripping meet-up with Brandy, we’re thrilled that our members can now enjoy these amazing classics,” gushed Netflix’s Bradley Edwards, Manager, Content Acquisition and Jasmyn Lawson, Manager, Strong Black Lead.
Are you loving “The Parkers” on Netflix? Do you think Professor Oglevee deserves to get dragged for his treatment of Nikki (16 years later) or is Twitter doing too much? Tell us in the comments and peep the hilariously petty PROFESSA dragging on the flip.
