  • While comparing her accomplishments with her husband's, Thelma doesn't feel as if she's done as much with her life as Reuben. She then receives an opportunity to become the host of a TV cooking show.moreless

    This is definitely an Anna Maria Horsford episode. During the course of the series, the writers got a lot of mileage out of the running gag that involved Thelma's cooking. Sometimes the character triumphed in the kitchen, but often, she did not. In this episode, Thelma gets the chance to host her own cooking show on TV, and in the process, Horsford gets to demonstrate her flair for physical comedy. We see her literally mix it up with costars Sherman Hemsley and Clifton Davis during the live on-air cooking segment that becomes a disaster. She spills flour all over the deacon; she starts a fire; and she causes a microwave to explode.moreless
