  • Gambling is wrong - but its OK for reverands to do it and the whole of Bed Stuy

    Doc discovers that Chris has a natural talent for picking the basketball game winners, making Chris everyone's favorite odds-maker also known as 'Chrissy the Black'. Things change when Paulie the local bookie shows up to see Chris and tells Chris that Doc better lose the next game. Meanwhile, Tonya tries to beat Drew at checkers after he keeps teasing her when he wins, so bets Drew $3 she'll win the next game and Julius bets on a basketball game advised by 'Chrissy the Black's' words of wisdom. So the whole Rock household is gambling! Even though Rochelle hates it! And when she finds out a hilarious interrogation takes place that leads to Chris getting in trouble - again...
  • One of the best episodes of the series hands down!

    Jason Alexander directorial debut on the show pays off big time, as he produces one of the finest episodes of the season. The scene between Rochelle and the bookie had me in fits of laughter, hell we were rolling around the floor, Go Chrissy the Black! lol! Not to mention the whole family interrogation scene by Rochelle was brilliant. Overall the show which was dipping has been rinkindled with a new fire! Go Paulie the Bookie!
