Bob Hearts Abishola (S01E12) “There’s My Nigerians”


bha - Bob Hearts Abishola (S01E12) "There's My Nigerians"

There’s My Nigerians!!!

Hi Guys. So we have another episode of Bob Hearts Abishola on our hands, and here is a recap!

Who else is excited? I know I certainly am. Friendly warning, this article contains spoilers.

I don’t know about you guys but I particularly love Dottie and Abishola’s scenes. I think they have have great chemistry. In the opening scene, we see Abishola trying to get Dottie to move her limbs to no avail. Even the promise of a full beer (half if she succeeds and the other half at dinner) didn’t do the trick.  Abishola  deduces that Dottie is depressed and asks Bob to arrange for Dottie to work or to meet with friends to cheer her up and hopefully hasten her recovery.

Bob arranges to have two friends from Dottie’s club, Jen and Trish (Wendie Malick and Marilu Henner) pay a visit. This backfires however and we see Dottie is even more depressed than she was.

Olu and Tunde pay a visit. They bring Dottie some Nigerian food and try to cheer her up. Dottie decides to get out of the house and go to her club with Olu and Tunde. When they arrive at the house, Dottie screams “There’s My Nigerians”.  At the club, there is a discussion about Bob and Abishola’s possible marriage, wherein Dottie angers her guests by mentioning the need for a prenup. Olu and Tunde are visibly upset stating that Abishola would become a part of the Wheeler Family and as such should be entitled to some of the wealth. We see them angrily but generously drop Dottie at Bob’s house.

Meanwhile, Chukwuemeka gives Kemi a necklace after a night of sex. Kemi is excited and flaunts the necklace in front of her colleagues. Emeka however returns the next day to demand for the necklace. He says his mother saw the receipts and wants him to return it. Kemi is having none of that tho. She insists its hers and she isn’t giving it back.


As usual, Chuck Lorre delivers good comedy.  I still believe there is a lot of work to be done. For instance, Kemi and Emeka are two entirely different tribes and yet they greet each other using the same language. Also, you cannot have Nigerians who cannot properly pronounce Nigerian names. It is a bit irking to watch.


In all, It was a good episode, a solid 7/10.

Bob hearts Abishola returns January 20 for its 13th and final episode for the season
