This week’s turn back TV show is the classic family comedy, Sister, Sister, starring identical twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry. It ran for six seasons, from 1994-1999.
The show is about sisters, Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell, who were separated at birth and adopted by different households. At the age of 14, while shopping at a mall, the sisters literally run into each other. One sister was with her single adoptive father, Ray (Tim Reid), and the other sister was with her single adoptive mother, Lisa (Jackée Harry). Ray and Lisa determine that the girls have been separated from one another for too long so it’s now time for them to be raised together. They all move in together, however, the parents maintain a platonic relationship throughout the series. The show begins with the twins as young teens and ends with them in college.
Sister, Sister’s storylines are still very relatable to kids today, with topics like dating, sibling rivalry, peer pressure, driving, plus other youth antics and drama.
Because every parent is unique and kids’ sensibilities and maturity vary, we always recommend that parents or guardians do their own research before allowing kids to start a new TV show. What is acceptable for one parent or child may not be for another. Our age recommendation for Sister, Sister would be 9+
