Conflict over Christmas and Chanukah (and throw in a little Kwanza), Judaism and Christianity, divorce and child custody, race and class, Baptist and Episcopalian, all in 20 minutes. One of my favorite episodes of Girlfriends, one of my favorite TV shows. Love the Jewish mother guilt, especially since it is so much like Catholic Cuban mother guilt, African American mother guilt, or any kind of mother guilt. All I can say is that I have only seen the wonderful classic holiday film It’s a Wonderful Life two, three times, but have watched this way more times than I can count.
BTW, the woman who plays Joan, Tracee Ellis Ross, is one of Diana Ross’s daughters.
