Wonderful episode.
13 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful, amusing, entertaining episode. Under the guise of a spoof, the episode explores some sensitive issues relating to self-esteem, stereotyping, and feelings of inferiority and does so in a manner that engages the audience and gives cause for thought, while at the same time having the opportunity to enjoy some sharp humor. This episode is made even more impressive by the farcical nature of the story which pokes fun in a manner that is not only unoffensive but gives cause for laughter. Sherman Hemsley shines as the featured character around whom the story revolves. Although he takes himself seriously, when forced to confront issues that cause him shame he rises to the occasion and becomes an inspiration and positive role model for others. And of course Marla Gibbs again shows that she is one of the finest comediennes in TV history.
