Even fathers and sons make strange bedfellows
10 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Strange Bedfellows" guest stars gorgeous Margaret Avery as Lamont's new girlfriend Denise, convincing him to phone a late night talk show to share his political views on the neighborhood. The next morning Ah Chew (Pat Morita, third of seven) enthuses about his radio appearance, then Mr. Cambridge (Edmund Cambridge) drops by to offer Lamont an opportunity to run for district state assemblyman. Lamont is flattered but feels unqualified, never graduating high school. Fred's ears perk up at the mention of a fundraising dinner, plus the annual salary of $20,000. Running for office leaves Lamont little time for his father, who is doubly disappointed to learn that his son will have to move to Sacramento if he wins. A television debate opposite opponent Harriet Radner (Brunetta Barnett) gives Fred the chance to bring the campaign to a stop. A shame that Margaret Avery never did another episode.
