Trivia

In Martin's apartment for the first couple of seasons, before Gina moved in and redecorated, Martin had two rap music posters up on his walls. In the hallway by the kitchen was a CD sized poster of the rap group The UMCs' debut album Fruits of Nature released in 1991. In Martin's dining room area on the back wall, was a album poster of rapper Tupac Shakur's debut solo album 2PACALYPSE NOW also released in 1991. It was mostly obscured by a glass frame that separted the rooms but it is still visible. See more »
