Lou Gossett as Florida's brother Wilbert
8 January 2017 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Michael's Big Fall" guest stars Lou Gossett (previously seen as "Thelma's Young Man") as Uncle Wilbert, Florida's younger brother from Detroit, filling in for the absent John Amos. Wilbert usually shows up when James is away, with everyone worried about Michael's late afternoons, JJ believing it's a girl and Wilbert figuring he's only studying for a future destined for the Supreme Court. Michael returns home with his report card, not intending for his mother to see it. Even worse, the Jenkins family pays Florida a most unpleasant visit, to request that her son stop beating up on their 'straight A' brat. That and cutting class just isn't in Michael's nature, so Florida and Wilbert talk to his teacher Mrs. Baker (Norma Donaldson), who questions how much they drive the boy to reach a goal that he might not feel he's ready for. Lou Gossett was a fine replacement for John Amos, sadly making his second and last appearance on the show.
