To this day, the FOX Thursday night lineup of Martin, Living Single, and New York Undercover is known as the Holy Trinity in the hood—a block of television that targeted people of color and won.
Martin stands out from that bunch as one of the greatest programs to ever grace television and has definitely stood up to the test of time. To this day, the show (through syndication) continue to make millions of people laugh.
Martin and Gina portrayed the trials and tribulations of a young couple just trying to survive in Detroit. They were a ride-or-die couple no matter what obstacles they faced. And their friends Tommy, Cole, and Pam were loyal in whatever nonsense the couple got into.
But how well do you really know Martin?
Take our quiz below and find out whether or not you should “get the steppin'” and binge watch some old Martin shows and finally get all caught up.
Martin went on a rent strike because his rent was increased and the landlord refused to fix any of the appliances around the apartment. How much was the increase?
Martin repeatedly told the gang "I can't pay the five!" Martin's rent went up by $5.00, nothing more.
