Jesus' followers start production of their magic tomato sauce while Ms. Tudi gets into online dating.

Ms. Tudi joins a Christian dating site and matches with Vic. She goes on a date and doses him with the tomato sauce in hopes of getting him off their case but instead causes him to fall in love with her. She tries to tell him she drugged him but he accuses her of being brainwashed by Jesus.

Man fuck this show with the heat of ten suns for its continued flagrant use of the somewhat acceptable version of the n-word coupled with a Nestle-Quik sized heaping helping of stereotypes everywhere you look, but I do continue to enjoy Jesus himself.

Nevermind the sesame street plots and predictable lines, the scene in Vic's apartment was great not only for the assuredly nasty green eggs and ham pasta sauce Vic correctly pegged as pukeworthy, but for the smattering of tacky 70's gear that litters his residence with an authenticity well done enough that it reminds me of two guys I knew in real life that would be seeing themselves in the mirror if they were watching this hopefully soon to be canceled mess. Seeing that blurry two-dialed black and white UHF/VHF television in the background as the power of god's love in the sauce had Vic up and singing actually made me wonder what a "That 70's show" with black people would feel like if it aired new in 2015.

Jesus' "breh" is getting really funny though. And Boonie's unabashed promotion of self-love made me laugh.

I really have no idea what they were going for making this. Jesus is such a fantastic character, and the other characters are great too, but what they're doing with them is so stupid.

this hopefully soon to be canceled mess.

I'm pretty sure it's been destroying the ratings so I don't see it getting canceled.

Indeed. However, that doesn't mean it won't get cancelled.
