EDIT
The Ghetto Gourmets
AIRED:
When the producer of a Regis & Kathie Lee type morning talk show invites Pops to cook his chili on the program, Marlon and Shawn tag along as his assistants. They're a hit and get invited back, only to discover that the show's hosts, Ken & Kiki, want the boys to do the segment without Pops, who they think is too old to appeal to the "younger demographic." Meanwhile, street hustler T.C. becomes a security guard.moreless

  • Nice one.

    9.1
    This is a really funny Wayans Bros. episode. The two are in fine form here as they start off as Pops' assistants on the, "Ken and Kiki Show." When Pops faints onstage, Shawn and Marlon have no choice but to take over for him and attempt to explain how to cook Pops' chili. Pops awakens and explains that he doesn't use cheap malt liquor in his chili! He uses Champale! When they get invited back, Shawn and Marlon find out it's because Ken and Kiki want to keep them in order to appeal to a younger demographic. Pops delivers the classic line, "Demographic? I can cook Greek!" Shawn and Marlon use their cleverness to outsmart Ken and Kiki. This episode is hilarious, and a good example of how Shawn and Marlon can work together. Also, Pops is excellent in this episode. Champale for everyone!



    Overall rating: 9.1/10.0.moreless

      Marlon: That's always been a dream of mine.
      Producer: To make chili on TV?
      Marlon: No, to be in show biz. Just think, to be known and loved by millions, to have crazed fans stalk you, to have the tabloids write lies about you, and then to live in fear that one day it's all gonna be gone. And I'll be a nobody again. I tell you, I love show biz.
