Len returns from his Caribbean cruise vacation with perspective then joins Vince in giving in-depth perspective on the Black family sitcom throughout the years, the 'talent' of Jimmy Walker and...The Transformers?
Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby star before the camera for the final time in the uneven, unfocused comedy crime caper (a cromedy?) A PIECE OF THE ACTION from 1977 and co-starring Denise Nicholas, a young Sheryl Lee Ralph and James Earl Jones.
AUDIO PROBLEMS AHEAD - Len and a poorly mic'd Vince gush all over the 1975 Sidney Poitier - Bill Cosby action comedy that features John Amos in beast mode and Jimmy Walker in least mode.
The Mission kicks off with Vince's favorite movie of all-time - Uptown Saturday Night (1974) in time to reflect on the 70s comedy that showed Sidney Poitier's versatility, Harry Belafonte's comedic chops and Bill Cosby at his grimiest (or so we thought).
