One of the best written shows from "Mama's" early years
26 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Any of the episodes centering around Naomi's job at Food Circus are hilarious, but this one is especially sharp. While wooing her customers with good tidings, in an attempt to win Friendly Employee of the Month, Naomi inadvertently attracts an admirer who makes obscene phone calls to Mama's house. At first, everyone blames Naomi's innate good nature and appeal as the cause of the calls, until Mama, Aunt Fran and even Vint get propositioned too. There are some great family dynamics in this one, with scenes involving everyone and lots of side-splitting, snide comments from Thelma. I usually prefer the later, better-produced shows featuring neighbor Iola and Bubba, yet this early episode is as good as any from the series.
