Default The episode LOVE TAPS...Gina being abused

OMG, imagine my surprise when I heard Gina's boyfriend tell Dwayne and Ron, "Y'all are SOFT!" Solomon...that reminded me of that crap we had been seeing posted on those other threads.


So, I guess the word SOFT is supposed to have meant "wimpy."

Yep that's what it means. Later on down the line the same guy plays a nerdy character. I have no idea why tv shows do that.

Really, which episode did he appear in?

I too hate when a show uses the same actor for different roles. A la Good Times.

He was in the episode where Charmaine and Terrell cheat on their French test.

And then he is brought back again for a followup episode in which he wants to make up with Gina. Good Times would have actor do roles, then bring them back as somebody else but when they wanted the original character to come back, they would hire someone else to play the role. The only exception would be Teddy Wilson. He played Sweet Daddy then played a club owner then reverted back to Sweet Daddy again.
