This episode showcases Mama Jefferson.
18 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is remarkable since it centers around the character played by Zara Cully who is marvelous. Ms. Cully carries the episode which is truly funny while maintaining the dignity of the main character. This episode also deals with the theme of sibling conflict which on the surface may seem silly and trite but underscores the fundamental irrationality that drive such disputes. It is not the nature of the disputes that are remarkable. Rather it is the characters themselves who are made to appear humorous given the trivial nature of their disputes. The other characters are also humorous as they try to deal with a self-centered but fragile woman whose transparent manipulations, which on the surface seem ridiculous, become the basis of a humorous and well acted episode.
