Spiraling down the Rabbit Hole
6 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Steve falls off the wagon and goes on a bender after discovering his ex-wife is pregnant and planning to remarry, leaving Jim and Billy to care for Emily during a weekend visitation.

In contrast to the previous episode, "Licked"'s, seemingly being crude because it could be, "Weekend" is purposefully dark, skillfully bringing together recurring plot elements from several previous Legit episodes and going down unexpectedly dark paths.

The highlight of the episode is Steve's "magical mystery tour" down the rabbit hole. which begins at a gun range, moves into alcohol and drug abuse, and, eventually, Steve in his underwear. Most of the episode was funny, but not in a way where I felt comfortable laughing, along the lines of "I could hit these targets better if they had my ex-wife's picture on them," to which the gun nut running the range replies, "Obama won't let us." I was half-expecting Steve to be killed off and this to be the last episode. "Weekend" probably wouldn't have resonated with me as much as it did, however, without the unexpected return of a character from a previous episode, whose return is foreshadowed in a powerful scene involving Jim's paternal status. In some ways, the scenes with Jim and Billy caring for Emily in Steve's absence contrast to the surreal nature of Steve's pathetic spiral.

This was an episode that was much darker than any sitcom you're likely to see on network TV. Regular viewers of Legit will probably appreciate the touches that elevate this episode more than someone who's never watched the show before, but it definitely ranks among the series' better episodes. Highly recommended.
