227 was a popular situation comedy that ran from 1985 to 1990 which starred Marla Gibbs, Hal Williams, Jackee Harry, Regina King, Alain Reed and Helen Martin. The show was about the tenants who resided in building number 227,  the ladies in the apartment were big time gossips. Mary (Gibbs) was the biggest gossip, Pearl (Martin) was the elder who had hilarious one-liners and Lester (Williams) was husband to Mary and construction company owner.

But what happened behind the scenes? A hell of a lot! Just you listen!

Listen to all that happened between Marla Gibbs and Jackee Harry, and how the other characters in later seasons were added but could still never measure up to Jackee. It's quite a story.

There's no place like home. I mean no place, child!
