    Things are about to get interesting. Or maybe not. Bob got his high powered lawyer and it turns out Abishola's husband has her own high-powered lawyer. And when Bob's lawyer got scared, that was funny. But it's starting to look like there may be hope.

    Abishola is not happy with her pastor. That could be bad.

    Goodwin and his cousin were no help but at least they were funny.

    Did you not watch to the end of the show before posting?

    I did, but I don't even remember now what happened at the end. I posted about what may be about to happen.

    Please tell me that was the last episode of "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist". At least the "music" was recorded and they weren't singing it. Actually, the first song was pretty close to my taste.

    I'm confused. Abishola's family are good Christians, but Christians don't believe in reincarnation. Nigerians apparently do.

    There's something about the third song that makes me think of Dr. Seuss. I don't think the actual song was used in any of the animated Dr. Seuss TV specials but there's something about it that reminds me of those.

    Not a fan of musicals, or musical interludes in normal shows, but this was okay. Didn't last too long, and fit the scene. Plus watching Billy Gardell shake & jive in that last segment was worth it! :D

    Bob [​IMG] Abishola got a shout-out today on Jeopardy!:up:

    This latest episode, with the dancing, is the only episode that I thought was lame. I hope it doesn't continue, otherwise it will be a jump the shark moment.

    I'm fairly confident this isn't the start of Bob {Glees} Abishola. :rolleyes:

    I didn't think anyone would know it and I might not have gotten it except the name of the company was mentioned several times this week, either in the dialogue or just on screen.

    Compression socks I would have known even if I didn't know the company name.

    Oh, great, the kids have taken over the dancing.

    I never thought I'd see the day Abishola would let her son do what he wants. And she took Bob literally when he mentioned the hat. Of course she's smart, but occasionally these things get in the way and make her funny.

    Once again, the Nigerian employees were funny. This time it was soccer (and I'm amazed the younger man called it that).

    I can't help but think in real life how dumb it would be to let the father take the son out of the country.
    Once the kid is gone, the dad could keep him forever. And his character seems the type to do it.

    This week's episode was really good. I could have done without Bob's siblings but his mom's comments about her children were fun.

    Interesting that someone from Africa is willing to waste food. I'm pretty sure there are plenty of starving people in Nigeria.

    I hadn't considered that Dele's father wouldn't bring him back but other than that I think it's a good idea to see where he came from.

    I was so relieved Kemi hadn't changed glasses. Whatever was wrong with that one pair was very distracting. It may have been some kind of reflection or maybe there really are yellow frames.

    I had to look up Dele's name because I've never seen it spelled before.

    There are plenty of people starving in this country and we waste huge amounts of food.

    Some people say there is no true poverty in this country. Africa is where people are said to be starving.

    This week's episode was good.

    Abishola's mom's difficulty with using a computer, Goodwin's American accent (I wish he'd use that more often, because these African accents are so hard to understand sometimes), Bob taking advice from Tunde.

    This week's may have been the best yet. Or maybe not. No, there have been funnier episodes.

    But Abishola being in charge was certain to be a disaster. We know what she's like. None of those nurses or nursing assistants (if there were nursing assistants, which many of the ones working were when I was a patient) were able to live up to her high standards and many of them managed to change shifts to get away from her. In Nigeria, based on what we are told on this show, the work ethic is such she probably would have been successful.

    But she doesn't really want to be in charge. She wants to take care of patients. I disagree that she should be a doctor. I always wondered why someone as smart as she was didn't try to do that, but for those watching this show, that would just be too much. I think she could be a nurse practitioner. That would likely require less education but given how long this series might last, she might still not be finished. And I know we don't want to go through eight years of medical school and who knows how many years of residency.

    I had wondered how Tunde and Olu made their money. Now we know. I loved Dele's response when asked if he would cure cancer. Abishola would settle for nothing less!
