Storyline

Kim has two problems: her parents want to take her car, and she needs an alibi for nights she's staying out, probably with Daniel. So, she invites an unsuspecting Lindsay to come to dinner. Meanwhile, Karen Scarfolli, who hangs out with Kim and Daniel, bullies Sam unmercifully and gets him into trouble when he tries to remove graffiti she's put on his locker. Things come to a head at the Weir dinner table. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Hurricane Kim rolls in
18 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Here it is, that heavy episode that sets out to humanize the show's raving B. And it's a success, even if you have to work for it. It's actually pretty dark; Kim buddying up to Lindsay throws's Sam's life and the Weir house into chaos. It's a bad day for everyone. But between Bill's presence, and Nick & his damn fruit rollups, there are (blessed) moments of levity; and Kim's broken-home nightmare gives a hard look into here messed-up personal life. And give Busy Phillips credit here, she goes all-out with the character's baggage.

Eventually, the hysterics pay off and all you're left with by end credits is a warm smile. Hard-won indeed.

7/10
