Trailer Watch: Kathy Bates Celebrates 420 in “Disjointed” Part 2

“Disjointed”: Robert Voets/Netflix

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.

But it’s not like Ruth could ever forget her first love. The trailer also teases one mother of a 420 celebration, complete with singing, dancing, and cannabis leaf-patterned umbrellas. “You don’t

‘Disjointed’ Trailer: Kathy Bates Lights Up Again in New Season of Netflix’s Stoner Comedy
Pivoting off of the success of the Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda vehicle “Grace and Frankie,” Netflix is filling out its roster of comedies starring beloved older actresses with stoner sitcom “Disjointed.” In it, Kathy Bates plays Ruth a former advocate for legalizing marijuana who opens a dispensary in Los Angeles with the help of her son. The newly released trailer promises plenty of high-induced hijinks, with Ruth parading around in a weed-adorned headdress in an epic 4/20 celebration. “Wet Hot American Summer” star Ken Marino makes a guest appearance in the trailer, although his wig-choice seems questionable at best.

Disjointed Review: Don't Puff Puff, Just Pass on Netflix's Half-Baked Sitcom

Disjointed Review: Don't Puff Puff, Just Pass on Netflix's Half-Baked Sitcom
You know how they say smoking marijuana can make anything funny? Well, whoever said that never watched Netflix’s appallingly bad new weed-com Disjointed. Because it would take a tractor-trailer full of ganja to make this mess tolerable.

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,

‘Disjointed’ Review: You Need to Be Stoned to Enjoy Kathy Bates’ Netflix Comedy, and That’s Not High Praise

‘Disjointed’ Review: You Need to Be Stoned to Enjoy Kathy Bates’ Netflix Comedy, and That’s Not High Praise
Disjointed” is a title sporting so many puns that unpacking them proves irresistible. (Pun-haters to the back.) The core word “joint” refers to both a marijuana cigarette and the slang term for any ‘ol place at all; like, say, the dispensary where Kathy Bates’ long-term pot advocate, Ruth, legally sells medicinal and recreational weed in the new Netflix comedy.

“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.

Fans of equally elementary wordplay are probably sold, but not so fast — the new Netflix comedy unveils a harsh buzz upon further pun-vestigation. 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,

‘Life Partners’ charmingly explores the balance of a proven friendship

Life Partners

Starring: Leighton Meester, Gillian Jacobs, Adam Brody, Gabourey Sidibe, Beth Dover, Mark Feuerstein, Kate McKinnon, Abby Elliott, Greer Grammer, Elizabeth Ho

Directed by: Susanna Fogel

USA, 2014

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.
