Cleveland on speed pills was a little odd, but this episode wound up working pretty well. The intervention was a lot of fun and Cleveland breaking out of the rehab clinic thanks to Holt's Church Lady impression was great! They even had a nice bit of subtle humor with Cleveland's "This soaks deck" remark.
The fight against the Somali pirates at the end was so bizarre...and so much fun. All that was missing was the Popeye music for Cleveland taking the pills.
Hey, CRZ was right! This was a good way to end my TV-watching night!
The whole concept of a Commodores Gold Album/All the Shrimp You Can Eat cruise made this one a winner from the jump. I'm not terribly in the tank for The Cleveland Show, but I thought this one was money.
"It's okay, everyone! He wasn't one of the original Commodores!"
I didn't say my link was a good article on Keenan's history on SNL, which is what your link basically was. I only used that link because I was just replying about that popular sketch of his and nothing more.
