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

23 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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

23 August 2017 12:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

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, »

Netflix is ramping up its sitcom slate with its new original series “Disjointed,” starring Kathy Bates as Ruth Feldman, a lifelong marijuana legalization advocate and new dispensary proprietor.

The trailer shows Bates with long, wavy gray hair — à la Lily Tomlin in “Grace & Frankie” — wearing colorful, pot leaf-adorned hippie garb as she finds her footing as the proud new owner of Ruth’s Alternative Living, accompanied by her three “budtenders,” her twenty-something-year-old son, and a troubled security guard. The trailer promises some PG-13, if not R-rated, content: “What the f—, it’s cool,” Ruth says nonchalantly at the end.

From Chuck Lorre and David Javerbaum, the 30-minute show will also star Tone BellAaron MotenElizabeth AlderferDougie Baldwin, and Elizabeth Ho.

Disjointed” marks one of the first original sitcoms to come from Netflix, whose previous forays into the genre include “Fuller House,” a sequel series to the original ABC hit; Ashton Kutcher-starrer “The Ranch,” currently »
