It’s Friday, and what better way to chill than with interesting series?
“Professor Johnbull” has released two new episodes from season four just at the right time and you can watch them both here.
Episode 3 – Stereotype
Starring the conscience of the series, Professor Johnbull, acted by Kanayo O. Kanayo, Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso), Mai Doya (Funky Mallam), Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko), Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola), Flash (Stephen Odimgbe), Etuk (Imeh Bishop), Samson (Ogus Baba) and Abadnego (Martins Nebo), Stereotype throws up the philosophical issue of fallacy of secundum quid (hasty generalisation).
Issues that will confront viewers as they watch the new episode include posers like: are people necessarily bad because of their ethnic background, geographical locations, place of birth or professional idiosyncrasies? Should people be judged based on their personal character? Or, is it fair to prejudge people before getting to know them? What are the negative effects of lumping people together under a single, negative stereotype? How does Samson wriggle out of the name calling and invective associated with the perceived notoriety of people from his Niger Delta origin?
Episode 4 – Not One of Us
Featuring the lead character in the sitcom, Professor Johnbull, acted by Kanayo O. Kanayo; the scholar’s househelp, Caro (Mercy Johnson-Okojie), the restaurateur, Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso), Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko), Samson (Ogus Baba) and Flash (Stephen Odimgbe) and others, “Not One of Us” throws up posers bordering on the correlation between genetic flaws and intelligence.
The episode also queries the tacit approval of discrimination against people with generic defects by the general society. Is a man’s intellectual ability measured by the size of his body? Do dwarfs and albinos possess any magical power as many believe? Does Flash possess any positive quality besides his rascally postures?
