Magazine editor Khadijah (Queen Latifah) continues to preside over the merry mayhem in her crowded Brooklyn brownstone as Living Single enters its second season. After avoiding making a commitment to her erstwhile boyfriend Scooter (Cress Williams), she finally decides that he's stable enough to suit her when he lands a job as a PR man for a big record company; alas, the couple is soon rent asunder when Scooter departs on a six-month promotional tour with a female R&B group, never to be seen again. . .at least until Living Single's final season. Meanwhile, the eternally bickering Max (Erika Alexander) and Kyle (T.C. Carson) try to make sense of their "one-night stand" from the previous season, concluding that they're now in love--or at least that's what they think until they start sniping at one another again. On the professional front, Max survives a series of humiliating temp jobs until she finally lands a good position with the Public Defender's office, where her new boss is her former flame Preston August (played by Phil Morris of Seinfeld fame. Also, Khadijah's impressionable cousin Synclaire (Kim Coles) continues to date Overton (John Henton),even going on lengthy vacations with him; but she refuses to go to bed with her sweetheart, a fact that proves startling to her worldlier roommate Regine (Kim Fields Freeman). Synclaire also manages to secure a few acting assignments in some decidedly off-off-Broadway productions, one of which requires her to appear in the nude. And getting back to Regine, our favorite gold-digger continues to primp and preen in hopes of landing a wealthy husband, but experiences more than a few setbacks in this pursuit, notably when she is forced to undergo breast-reduction surgery to cure her aching back. Although the popularity of Living Single did not hinge upon its guest stars, mention should made of the prominent persons appearing in various Season Two episodes, among them composer Branford Marsalis, New York Mets player Bobby Bonilla and boxer Roberto Duran in "Who's Scooping Who?" Also, Rosie O'Donnell shows up as an old friend of Khadijah who disrupts the equilibrium of Flavor magazine when she is hired as a columnist in the episode "There's No Ship Like Kinship", while a young Will Ferrell appears as the"Roomate from Hell" in "Talk Showdown." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
