I’m sure we all have a favorite Martin episode, I know I do, actually I have more than one! Martin is nostalgic for many reasons, and it is also a monumental show from the 90’s. His creativity and versatility of comedy is evident though characters such as Jerome, Sheneneh, Roscoe, Bill from Marketing and more. He made a lasting impact in television history. Whether he was fighting with Ms.Geri, telling Tommy he didn’t have a job, or breaking out in dance, he was making history with his show. If I had to choose an order of my absolute favorite episodes though, it would go a little something like this…
In this episode Martin runs a stop sign and gets a ticket. Instead of accepting the ticket, he decides to go to court challenge the ticket and represent himself! He calls his friends as witnesses and puts on a classic performance as he pleads insanity as a last result to get out of the ticket.

Martin’s CD player has gone missing. In an attempt to get to the bottom of the it, he invites the gang over for a night of questioning. his episode mirrors the classic scene from New Jack City. In true Nino Brown fashion he insults and interrogates his friends. This episode is even funnier because you can see the cast fighting back their real laughs!
