The Cleveland Show Episode 7: "A Brown Thanksgiving" - Review

In homage to some classic Thanksgiving-themed sitcom episodes, the Brown and Tubbs families get to share more than just a meal for this special day. Stealing the show is Donna's dear Auntie Momma, who seems to be hiding a lot more than just a flatulence problem.

It took a while, but it seems that we finally have our first genuinely memorable episode of The Cleveland Show. Choosing to focus on Cleveland's family was a wise decision as the different members are finally starting to have a little chemistry. Little things like Cleveland Jr.'s reaction to Rallo spraying him with water and the conversation that followed about Amerindians illustrates how the writers are finally starting to feel a little more comfortable with these characters, and seem to be learning how to use them to tell jokes.

Another great Rallo moment was when he tossed Cleveland's father a knife and Cleveland Jr. tossed his dad a spoon to use as a weapon. While the ensuing battle served as a perfect moment for the fantastic introduction of Auntie Momma, the real punch-line of this joke was when Rallo later "tried" to apologize to Cleveland.

Auntie Momma was absolutely hilarious. Everything about her from the way she looked to that ridiculous voice to her charming life lessons, to her powerful and well-timed farts Auntie Momma's got to be the best character to be introduced on this show. Her big secret only made her that much more interesting, and the fact that she got it on with Cleveland's dad made her appearance all the more memorable. Not only did she has a grand entrance, but her flatulence-powered roller-skate exit was the kind of thing you don't see on television every day.

Even Roberta's storyline with Federline was somewhat entertaining. The homeless superhero who stole his car was intriguing enough, and even the canned feel-good message about spending Thanksgiving with your family was done with enough quirkiness to make it work. Also, Federline's ridiculous rhymes and mannerisms were more charming than usual in this episode.
