  • One Of The Best Scripts Of The Lot -

    9.5
    This one is in my top 10, but I haven’t decided exactly where it lands. It’s one of the few really well-written (Arguably, THE best-written) scripts of the series, and the Performers make the most of it, especially Foxx. Writer Ilunga Adell covers all the bases, and there’s not a ‘loose end’ in sight. The whole episode is hilarious, but there are some scenes that are really outstanding, laugh-wise. When Fred and Bubba sneak up to the house, to see who Lamont’s ‘hot date’ is, and Bubba has a ‘big one’, himself, with the shock of what he’s witnessed; At Marilyn’s home, when Fred goes into the bedroom, to watch TV, and finds Marilyn’s Parents in bed, asleep; And, when Fred confronts Marilyn’s Father, later, over Fred’s being a “strange man” are all side-splitters. Catch this one if you can. It’s quality TV comedy – Both Writing, and Performing.moreless
