One of my favorite shows from my childhood is Sister Sister. The show starred Tia and Tamera Mowry as Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell. They were identical twins who were separated at birth and adopted by different families: Tia, the studious and responsible twin was raised by her mother Lisa Landry, a wacky seamstress and clothing designer. Tamera was raised by Ray Campbell, a stern and low-key owner of a limousine service. The twins know nothing about each other until age 14 when they have a chance encounter in a clothing store. Knowing that they twins can’t very well be separated now, Ray invites the rather financially struggling Lisa and Tia to live with him and Tamera. Lots of things happen to this rather unconventional family, but most of all, there is love.
I first got into the show in the fall of 2002 when the Disney Channel began airing reruns of it. I was hooked on the humor. The twins always got into crazy situations, but of course remained close and loving through it all.. The parents with their opposite personalities played very nicely off of each other. It was exactly the type of show I like in that it was hilarious and heartwarming.
