  • 227 gets serious

    Normally, 227 strayed away from serious topics and focused on mild comedy. In this episode, the series deals with the issue of teenage drug dealers in the community. An unsuspecting Calvin gets involved as he is paid $50 to collect a package of money as long as he doesn't open the envelope. However, Mary and Pearl gets suspicious when Calvin comes with the package and he has new shoes and $50. When they alledge that his friend is dealing, Calvin and Brenda go on the defense.

    Later on in the show, Calvin learns the truth and the dealer admits that he uses anyone he can to elude the police and others. The ending of the episode was written great. As most would think, that no one would have ever heard of the character again, his mom walks into the community meeting like normal and does a great call for action.

    Well written and scripted.
