    I was surprised to see Abishola's son in this episode. Isn't he supposed to be in Nigeria with his father?

    Good question. Has he already gone and come back or he didn't leave yet? Or they're showing the episodes out of order. ???

    He is supposed to go during his summer vacation. Maybe the will coincide with the summer hiatus.

    A very good episode last night.

    I don't like seeing Kemi like that, but it is often the case that it adds to the quality of a show and of the talent of a comic actor to show the character not being funny.

    The group at the church mentioned Genesis but unless multiple books of the Bible were mentioned, Jonah is in Jonah--AND he was swallowed by a fish, not a whale. Also, Christians shouldn't be gossiping.

    And Abishola shouldn't be doing anything with Bob until they are married. She said she would wait. Now they're in bed together?

    Abishola weakened in the no sex before marriage so not a surprise.

    The allusion to Jonah wasn’t necessarily part of the lesson on genesis. It was used by Chewie’s mother. No one said it was in genesis.

    Finally, some people still call it a whale. There are lots of translations of the Bible. LDS teaches it as a whale to children, for example.

    Finally. It’s a comedy not a documentary.

    I got the impression Jonah was mentioned somehow so I don't know whether they covered material from two books or the writers were lazy.

    Or she just brought up Jonah to be mean spirited. Not everyone talks linearly and logically. She didn’t say when they discussed Jonah that night. Sheesh. Have some fun.

    Read the cat's message.

    Another good episode but I can't believe Abishola's going through with it. Everyone knows that unless they skip over it, we're going to have to endure her going through college and medical school. Although I've known a few TV series that actually did skip to the future. There's almost no way even a successful series is going to last that long ("Supernatural" and "Smallville" are a few examples I can think of, and the Fox animated comedies) and we're going to "drop out" in the middle.

    I was impressed with Gloria's story but it was a shame what ended up happening. But the actress has played so many nurses.

    It's kind of funny how Tunde treated Bob when he came over to fix the dishwasher but as someone who needs "a guy" to come over anytime stuff needs fixing, I had sympathy for Bob. And I don't really have the money to pay "a guy" but I don't know how to do stuff. I needed plenty of help once I went beyond the Series 2 TiVo, though I had always avoided VCRs that were separate because they would be so hard to deal with. The Series 2 I could handle on my own, as it turned out.

    I went looking to see if there was a writing/director change as the last few episodes have moved from a solid comedy theme to comedy with some serious storylines.

    But what I found is that the actor that plays Kami was originally brought in by Chuck Lorre as a consultant because he did a Google search for Nigerian comics. Then after auditioning and landing the role of Kami and consulting on the pilot, Lorre made her a writer and co-creator.

    Since it's Chuck Lorre sitcom on CBS, it'll probably have a long run just because I think CBS gives Lorre a lot of leeway.

    Abishola is getting on my last nerve. At least she had a tender moment with her son at the end, but her uptight demanding attitude has finally pushed me over the edge. The only way I can stand her is if she occasionally is more relaxed, but there weren't enough of those last night. I don't think there were any except that very last scene.

    Her friends I can still stand, so I could at least enjoy her chasing her son around with that phone app. Or maybe Bob was with her in one of those scenes. Bob I always like.

    Billy Gardell is doing an Ozempic commercial. He's really good. Of course, he always is.

    I just saw that today also. It's always kinda weird when a well-known, and currently very employed actor, does something like this. Especially a TV person.

    Tonight is the penultimate episode of this season.

    Abishola was a lot more fun this time. Not to mention pretty. People say she is pretty but normally I don't see it.

    Bob's brother and sister moved out? It seems like they live with Bob.

    It does seem pointless for Bob's mom to have her own house when Bob has such a big place.

    It was so funny Tunde and Olu have become too American.
