Poor Jimmy!
30 January 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Jimmy and the Boss go fishing. Jimmy hates it and complains constantly. White verbally abuses him and refuses to listen to anything Jimmy says. They have not caught a fish all day and thy are both cranky. They make their way to a resort where Perry used to go years before. The place is totally run down and is frequented by three crazy people. A thug, a man who seems to think the Civil War is still going on, and an older woman in a wheelchair. They are at each other's throats over something. They convince Jimmy there is a ghost in the house and Jimmy buys it, but Perry won't budge (he smells a story). Apparently there is money buried somewhere and the three are after it and don't want strangers around. In the basement is a skeleton which is a man one of the nuts has murdered. Thre are so many plot holes in this, but that's pretty much true of all of the episodes. Still, it is funny watching White and the kid spar.
