Ruth’s Alternative Caring is re-opening its doors. A trailer for Part 2 of the marijuana dispensary comedy “Disjointed” has dropped and promises plenty of new cannabis-fueled shenanigans for Ruth (Kathy Bates) and her co-workers — as well as some social commentary.
“I’m getting back to my roots. The whole planet’s gone to hell. I’m pissed off,” longtime legalization advocate Ruth announces. Now that she’s achieved her dream of opening a legit pot business, she’s ready to dive into other causes. According to a list seen in the clip, “Polar Ice Caps/Ice Caps in General” and “Protestant Reformation (Too Late?)” are among the topics she’s most passionate about.

In part two of the 20-episode series, Ruth’s Alternative Caring has reopened after having been shut down by the DEA, keeping Ruth and her “budtenders” in business. “Disjointed” also stars Chris Redd,
You might have seen that Disjointed (debuting this Friday) stars the great Kathy Bates and airs on Netflix, and assumed that it must be innovative in some way. But don’t be fooled: This is basically a lame CBS sitcom dressed up in hip, streaming-service clothing. Chuck Lorre (of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory fame) is an executive producer here,
“Head to Ruth’s joint and buy as many joints as you’d like!” is a slogan Ruth herself might share in the series: an easy, obvious joke for a show built (mostly) around simple pleasures.

Optimists could argue “disjointed” refers to the the pieced together family of pot dealers, smokers, and breeders who all work out of Ruth’s shop. That’s a nice thought, but after binging four episodes,
Academy Award winner Kathy Bates plays Ruth, a lifelong advocate for legalization who is finally living her dream as the owner of an Los Angeles cannabis dispensary, Ruth’s Alternative Caring. Joining her are three charismatic “budtenders”, her entrepreneurial twenty-something year old son and a very troubled security guard.
Disjointed arrives on Netflix on August 25th.
You could make these jokes all day and apparently, so can “Disjointed,” the latest Netflix multicam comedy premiering later this month. Kathy Bates stars as the proprietor of “Ruth’s Alternative Caring,” an L.A.-area pot dispensary, a woman who runs the store along with a handful of ragtag employees.

Long-term friendships are probably the most treasured definition of a kind of ideal relationship that an individual could ever develop in their lives. This is certainly so for late twenty-somethings Sasha and Paige, the perky protagonists in director Susanna Fogel’s spry, down-to-earth dramedy Life Partners. Charming, quirky and breezily spirited, Fogel presents a chippy but honest character study of female empowerment that is certainly infectious and relatable. Life Partners is a precise look at the subtle anxieties of growing up and possibly growing apart relating to contemporary womanhood.
Fogel establishes a clear cut blueprint for long-time best buddies Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) whose closeness and continued bonding are puzzling given the fact that they are opposite souls with different philosophies on life.
