Mindblowing
15 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I can assure you I went into this show not expecting much, but what I was left with was so brilliantly devious that I could not stop smiling or talking about it until it aired again the next week, when my smile would only grow wider until it became injuriously wide. I needed jaw surgery shortly thereafter.

The mysteries on this show (The Cosby Mysteries) feature Cosby. Obviously. However, in a shockingly post-modern turn of non-customary non-post-modernity, Cosby doesn't actually play himself, but Guy Fawkes, a detective who looks remarkably like Bill Cosby. He is joined by Most Deaf, a popular Rapper (apparently) who is an unpopular actor.

In every show, Fawkes solves a mystery which is usually so complex, so brilliant and so shocking that I shake my head and cry out at the top of my voice, "That Bill Cosby should be president!" I implore you all to watch this series. It is rarely on.
