Wasn't Jackee supposed to have her characeter Sondra spun-off into her own series? I believe that's why they wrote her out of the show (but NBC didn't pick up the series after the pilot).

Did anyone else notice, that in the season 5 episodes that Jackee did not appear in, in the theme song there were still some old clips of her and Mary? (She was no longer credited though.)

I've never seen any of the season 5 eps. she did appear in....was she credited in the theme song, or at the end credits as a "guest star" or something?


I remember watching this when I was 10....the older season reruns were on NBC in the morning, then those ended and all there was were the new season 5 episodes on Saturday nights. I was bummed with those because Sandra was my favorite character.

Personally, I thought the show was still good even though Sandra was gone. I still laughed and enjoyed the series all the way through. Season five is one of my favorite seasons. Has Sandra stayed, would it have been funny? Heck yes! She was a strong element to the show but Marla Gibbs was the foundation and she was hilarious as Mary. I recently rewatch "Knock it off" with specials guests Gary Coleman and IMAN. This was one of my favorite eps from when I was 12. I laughed then and laughed now. Sandra wasn't in the episode but it was still hilarious to me.

Marla played a big role in the direction and focus of the show.
Marla was apparently upset because 227 was supposed to be her show, but Jackee's Sandra wound up being the break-out character. The show started to focus more on Sandra to Marla's chagrin. So the producers decided to try to give Jackee her own spin-off show due to the increasing tensions between Gibbs and Jackee. It ultimately failed on both ends. Jackee's show didn't even get picked up, and 227's ratings tanked after Jackee left.
