Freaking hilarious! !

I was so disappointed when i found out they wouldn't be returning to Netflix. I really loved this show and Kathy bates really showed another side of herself. I think this is more of the true side of her which is why it worked so well. I hope Netflix reconsiders.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Puff, puff, pass on this messy, awkwardly paced sitcom full of obvious punchlines and lazy TV tropes. The creators basically took the well-worn network sitcom format, complete with a cutesy-quirky ensemble cast and a chuckle-happy studio audience, then added in a big-name star (Kathy Bates, who is wasted here) and a heaping helping of "F" words. They've also made the bizarre decision to emulate the timing of commercial breaks by adding jarring interstitial bits such as animated freak-out segments, faux marijuana ads, and fake YouTube videos.

Despite Disjointed's offbeat setting, the humor hits all the most predictable beats -- so, so many jokes about how forgetful stoners can be -- and doesn't have the slightest bit of edge. There's also the curious decision to include a somber PTSD storyline, which drags an already straining show down and gives things a "Very Special Episode" feel.
