    I finally saw the episode. I keep hoping one of these days all of Bob's relatives will just disappear. I like Bob too much to make this just a show about the Nigerians, but I would certainly continue watching just them. And the nurse with an attitude.

    It was nice to see Abishola's son for a change.

    Tunde had the best lines in the episode. Also, the lunch lady whatever her name is was funny in the man's room.

    I really thought the jeweler was going to get even when they came back for the ring. No such luck. Bob shouldn't have taken the ring back because there could have been a short delay.

    Am I the only one who still can't see these two as a couple?

    I couldn't believe one of the names in the credits. I guess Susan Ruttan was going to get old.

    Totally agree about Bob's family, they add nothing (even comedy) to the show.

    I suppose I liked seeing Bob's brother actually work. But the only good thing about going to that very noisy club was the two Nigerians being funny.

    I agree that Bob should have let Abishola talk. She's intelligent enough to have conversations with those business people. Actually, I didn't know she had done so much with her life until last night. Did they ever tell us?

    Love the “two Nigerians.”

    They never told us about her background other than her marriage. They did have to cut season one short. Maybe it was going to be covered there.

    Whatever show it was, another show mentioned genital mutilation. I hope this show never mentions that. That is something that happens in Nigeria.

    They have to start writing the sister different. She's become so annoying, my love for this show is waning.

    The brother and sister have always been annoying. I liked the idea of the other nurse working with Mama. They're funny together. :D

    I wish they'd get rid of these two and put Goodwin and his cousin in charge of the company, reporting to Bob. Goodwin has brains and his cousin will be good for laughs regardless.
    They are. I've never liked that nurse so much. But we had no reason to "like" her.

    If I haven't said it (I might have) I first remember her as the secretary whose boyfriend was an African-American cop from up North in a small Southern town where all the white people were morons. She has had so many roles over the years. Including Will Smith's mom on "Fresh Prince" for a few guest appearances.

    Ha! Carter Country. Handle it Roy! Handle it! Handle it!

    I too don't really like Bob's family. They could get rid of them all and the show wouldn't skip a beat.

    As a side note, this show has the worst opening credits I've ever seen. I have no idea what the actual actors names are who play in the show since they are all mashed together in that awful opening.

    You've got to admit the music is good, though.

    Bob's family is annoying, and the brother/sister are not even funny. Unfortunately, they seem to be giving them even more screen time. Ugh.

    I thought we were finally going to get an episode without the worthless kids. Nope. But it was mostly good, and I liked the comments about how the kids other than Bob were worthless. Bob saved his family's company and I respect him for what he has done. Unlike a certain Donald who was given his Daddy's company to run and went bankrupt multiple times.

    Still, someone is seeing something I'm not seeing. Normally when a couple bickers like that, you know they're going to still end up together. I still can't see Bob and Abishola as a couple, as much as I enjoy the separate storylines. There's just something missing for me when those two are together.

    I miss Molly. Every night at the top of the screen (Roamio) when I am choosing what to watch, there is a list of shows on right now or shows I might be interested in, and there is Bob when he was Mike.

    91 when I was in school was a B. And when I was in college it was normally 90 that was an A, but one professor decided 93 was an A and said if you think that's what A should be in high school, no. A should be 90 in high school and 93 in college. And after one day in his class and hearing his expectations, I knew I wasn't likely to even make a B with him and I changed professors.

    Glad it's not just me! I like the mother because, well maybe partially because she's played by Ebersole. But the brother and sister are beyond obnoxious and annoying. I'm good with everybody else. I've always liked Vernee Watson and agree that she and Ebersole are a good match in scenes.

    I really enjoyed the vacuum cleaner robot subplot. I was sad when he sent it away.

    I was pleased to see Bob's former mother-in-law from "Mike and Molly" on "Call Me Kat".

    Well, they did it. They finally found a way to make Bob's brother funny. As for what they did with the wrong size socks, I don't see why they couldn't have added a new line for babies, but I guess an insurance scam is the most profitable route.

    Bob wouldn't go for it. He's too moral. And I thought Abishola wouldn't stay over because of her faith.

    Goodwin and his cousin were funny as usual. And Tunde and his wife when Bob couldn't possibly say anything about the food that would please them.

    But Kemi's contribution was by far the biggest. And it's so funny she's the lunch lady trying to diagnose Bob when Abishola is a nurse sitting right there. Kemi is annoying in a good way, meaning she's entertaining. Meanwhile, Abishola is just uptight and I still have trouble seeing her and Bob having a permanent relationship.

    And then Bob gets to the CVS and finds out Kemi's boyfriend will no longer wait on him. Bob just couldn't get a break in this episode.

    I haven't had time to watch this week's episode yet but when I heard the stars would be on "Let's Make a Deal" I just had to see that. They were at home an appeared by technology, and a contestant won depending on how many of certain items each of the stars had at home. When the host introduced them he said he was going to have difficulty pronouncing one of the names. So he said it really slowly. "Bil-ly Gar-dell". He knew this man because they had worked together before.

    I was about to watch two at once and then realized I would miss "Jeopardy" if I did. If I went to bed at the normal time, which of course I'm going to do unless it's New Year's Eve. And they would have to do a two-part episode. Maybe I'll see the rest tonight.

    The first part, where Abishola's husband comes to Detroit, may have been the best episode yet.

    There's no way she's going to go along with his macho attitude. She's changed.

    That woman, or the women, in the Nigerian market looked so much like Abishola I thought maybe that was her in the past.

    I thought maybe Abishola was developing a more pleasant relationship with her son. Nope. She's the way she has always been.

    Bob was pleasant enough to the man but there's a real challenge ahead.
