Foxy Brown - 8/9/14

This week, Colin takes us back to the groovy '70's with the Blaxsploitation classic Foxy Brown (1974).  Foxy (Pam Grier), a "whole lot of woman" - as described by one character, goes on a revenge rampage after her undercover cop-boyfriend is gunned down by thugs from a heroin syndicate.  This was Grier's follow up to her breakout role in Coffy the year prior, and was initially titled "Burn, Coffy, Burn".  Hear how it all went down when Foxy Brown came to town on this week's episode.  Can you dig it?
