  • A pretty darn funny episode.

    In this early Wayans Bros. episode, Shawn and Marlon drop Pops off at the airport. However, while they're waiting around, an ignorant airport worker mistakes Marlon for New York Knicks player John Starks. Marlon quickly decides to capitalize on this error, enjoying a first-class seat on the airplane, and bringing Shawn along as his "manager." Everyone on the plane is fooled by Marlon's act except a young kid who wants John Starks's autograph on his basketball card and knows that John Starks and Marlon actually look nothing alike. Marlon tries to prove the kid wrong by having the captain "make a basket" with his arms while he shoots a soda can into it. Marlon misses horribly, which makes it all the funnier. Also hilarious in this episode is when Pops tries to convince everyone on the plane that he's Johnny Mathis, and even sings "Misty." Also, many good jokes about Shawn being "whipped" by his girlfriend Lisa (*whip noise). My only criticism of this episode is that some of the racial humor was kind of over-the-top, and could have been done in better taste. Still, an enjoyable episode.

    Overall rating: 8.5/10.0.moreless
  • This episode is extremely hilarious!

    Marlon and Shawn are dropping off their father Pops at the air port. While their father is going to the washroom, Marlon is given two air plane tickets for first class after he is mistaken for a famous athlete. So, Marlon and Shawn are now living the high life while they are in first class. They think Marlon is John Starks and Shawn is his manager. But it doesn't go as well as Marlon and Shawn thought it would be, especially when Pops is on the same flight.

    I think this episode was so funny and entertaining. It is one of my favourite Wayans Bros episodes. I loved it!moreless
