Unsung

Full Force

Few musical artists can boast a career as wide-ranging, influential and yet truly ‘unsung’ as Brooklyn's Full Force. For more than three decades the pioneering three brother, three cousin collective have broken ground as writers, producers and performers. They’ve helped launch the careers of pop stars as diverse as Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, the Backstreet Boys and Cheryl Pepsii Riley, while reviving the career of the Godfather himself, James Brown. They gained cult status after portraying hilarious bullies in the classic comedy "House Party", by playing up their buffed out & Jheri curled image, and rocked the dance floor with irresistible jams like ‘Ain’t My Type of Hype’ and ‘Alice, I Want You Just For Me!’ Their credits read like a who’s who of contemporary pop music. But behind the scenes, the band members have battled career ups and downs, along with health issues that have imperiled one member’s survival. On this remarkable episode of Unsung’, one of popular music’s most prolific musical families gets busy one more time.

The men eventually figure out what is going on, and show up at her door to confront her. Regine apologizes for the deception, and Cole orders her to choose between them. She picks Warner, causing Cole to have an on-air breakdown. Meanwhile, Overton, Max and Khadijah drive Kyle crazy when they invest money with his firm.

Tibby or Not Tibby

Overton receives an unexpected visit from his beloved Uncle Tibby. He is not impressed with Synclaire, as he believes she is trying to "get her hooks" into Overton. He urges Overton to dump her immediately. Synclaire overhears this, and is deeply hurt. Overton assures her that he is not swayed by his uncle's opinion, and offers to prepare a special dinner to get Tibby to warm up to Synclaire. When Tibby continues to criticize her, Overton orders him to leave. He explains that he cannot go home, as his wife threw him out for offering his brutally honest opinion about her children's choir. He apologizes to Synclaire, and admits that the fact that she reminds him of his wife may have been to blame for his attitude. Overton and Synclaire urge him to call his wife and patch things up. Kyle reluctantly gives Max the expensive bracelet (engraved with the message, "To Max, Always on my mind. Kyle") he purchased before their break-up. She pawns it to buy fake crocodile skin boots, and taunts him. After Kyle repurchases it for his new flame, Regine notes that Max seems to have regrets.

Friends Like These

Flavor. Max is extremely jealous, and warns that Jackie is an opportunist who will hit Khadijah up for a loan. In college, Jackie convinced Max and Khadijah to start a sandwich business, only to drop it after two weeks. Khadijah is furious at Max for interfering in her affairs. A few days later, Jackie asks Khadijah to loan her money for a tattoo business. Khadijah turns her down, and orders her to return the 200 dollars she had borrowed from Synclaire. She tells Jackie that she needs to get her priorities straight and stop changing directions every few weeks. Jackie decides to go mooch off her parents. Just as Max boasts that Jackie never comes through, talk show host Arsenio Hall shows up at the apartment for the interview Jackie had promised to arrange. Overton buys several fish for the apartment. Kyle grows attached to them, and decides to get his own fish, Kyle Barker. When the new fish eats all the others, a guilt-ridden Kyle buys Overton a puppy, even though Kyle is allergic to dogs.

Shrink to Fit

Khadijah takes a second job as a night security guard at an old-folks home to pay for improvements in Flavor, which faces stiff competition from a copycat magazine called Savor. These worries are compounded when she learns that Scooter is dating another woman. Khadijah develops insomnia, and behaves extremely erratically. She follows her mother's advice and begins seeing a psychiatrist, Dr. Bryce. She shows up at the office in a wig because she fears that her friends would treat her like a mental patient if they knew about her session (which proves to be true). Dr. Bryce notes that Khadijah seems to put everyone else's needs ahead of her own, and believes that she is suffering from a mild form of depression. Even when Savor flops, Khadijah's mood does not improve. She admits that she has begun to think about all she has sacrificed for her magazine, and wonders if it is worth it. She agrees to continue to see Dr. Bryce, but the doctor first instructs her to take a one-week vacation. Synclaire's gig as a clown at a child's party forces Overton to confront his clown phobia, which dates back to a nasty childhood incident involving a circus elephant.

Regine takes her friends to a Brian McKnight concert after getting free tickets from a co-worker. Kyle and Max get thrown out after they get into a shouting match and nearly come to blows. In the security offices, they look back on their relationship. Max claims that she only cares about food, shelter, her career and good sex. Kyle tries to offer her a ride home, but she refuses to give in. Russell learns that he is to be deported back to Jamaica. He enlists the help of the Flavor staff, who can save him by proving that he is an essential employee. Their pathetic display fails to fool the INS officer, but Synclaire comes to the rescue by claiming that he is needed to help Flavor produce an issue in patois.

Thanks for Giving

Everyone is surprised by Regine's companion at Thanksgiving dinner--a charming, overweight parcel delivery guy named Darryl who does not meet any of image-conscious Regine's usual date criteria. When Scooter calls Khadijah and tells her that he wants to ask her something at the dinner, she and her friends believe that he is going to propose. She is shocked when he instead tells her that he has been offered a chance to manage a female R&B group and accompany it on a world tour. Scooter becomes angry when Khadijah does not offer her blessing. The group breaks off into boy and girl factions, who each rant about the opposite sex. When everyone re-assembles for dinner, Darryl's touching prayer prompts Khadijah to re-consider and allow Scooter to pursue his dream.

Kyle asks Overton to program his two girlfriends' numbers into his new cellular phone. Overton makes the girls aware of each other's existence when he accidentally calls one when he believed he was speaking with the other.

Love Thy Neighbor

Kyle convinces Overton to double date with his old girlfriend and her cousin, Summer. Overton and Summer hit it off at dinner, but he feels as though he is cheating on Synclaire. Kyle reminds him that Synclaire has never shown any romantic interest in him, and encourages him to ask Summer out. When the girls run into Overton and Summer, Synclaire becomes very sad. After she makes many catty remarks about Summer and her hat, her friends suggest that she is jealous, and encourage her to make a move. Synclaire refuses to interfere, and instead hurts Overton's feelings by sending a tape deck he was to repair to Dr. Fix-It. The girls urge her to share her feelings with Overton. After he sends Summer away, Synclaire asks him to come downstairs. She initially tries to say something profound, but finally gives up and plants a kiss on him. Meanwhile, the upstairs neighbors annoy Khadijah and Regine by having sex constantly. The girls are impressed to learn that an elderly couple is responsible. When the couple moves away, a very handsome man rents the apartment, and soon has Khadijah, Regine and Max drawing battle lines.

Mystery Date

Overton and Synclaire's relationship gets off to a rocky start, thanks to bad advice from their friends. Regine tells Synclaire that her aggressive behavior (kissing Overton) will drive him away, while Kyle convinces Overton to show up late for their date to the flea market to avoid seeming needy. Both believe they have been stood up, and sulk for days. Khadijah, Max and Regine continue to throw themselves at Hamilton, especially after learning that he is a medical student. Regine cooks him a gourmet meal, while Khadijah purposely allows Hamilton to tie the ball up (and put his hands all over her) during their one-on-one game in the hallway. Kyle decides to throw a party to get Overton and Synclaire back together, and entices the others to come by inviting Hamilton. Overton and Synclaire apologize for the misunderstanding, and Hamilton asks Khadijah out for drinks. Unfortunately, he proves to be too good to be true--he is a cheapskate and a bore.

Hand That Robs the Cradle

While the girls are at the cafe, an attractive young man named Brendan approaches Max. He is an NYU freshman who met her at the job fair, and asks for the opportunity to discuss points of the law. Khadijah insists that Brendan is hitting on Max. Max later admits that Brendan asked her out. After her friends make many, many jokes, Max claims that she turned Brendan down. A few days later, the girls catch Max at the cafe with him. Khadijah is angry with Max for lying, but Max points out that her friends were not exactly supportive. When Regine opines that Max is ashamed of Brendan, she agrees to bring him to a party for Flavor advertisers (which Regine has planned, despite her complaints about Khadijah's $200 budget). Max is less than forthcoming about Brendan's age, so he storms out. She follows him into the elevator to apologize, and concedes that her behavior is immature. She decides not to let others' opinions dictate her actions. Kyle is distraught when he learns that he needs glasses. He refuses to wear them, but changes his mind when he identifies a party guest across the room as his future wife, only to find that it is Max.

Rubin Hurricane Cater

In 1966, at the height of his boxing career, Rubin Carter and 17 year old friend John Artis were convicted and sentenced to life in prison for a crime they vehemently denied having any involvement in: the late night murder of a bartender and two patrons at the Lafayette Bar and Grill in Paterson, NJ. In the mid 70’s, following the release of his best selling biography, there was an outcry for Rubin's release by celebrities that included Muhammad Ali and Bob Dylan. Was Rubin Carter really the violent loose cannon that everyone had made him out to be? If he was truly innocent, how could he have been sent to prison for as many years as he was?
