Excellent treatment
11 June 2017 | by ciitkb-33326See all my reviews

This episode dealt with Charlie's family having to understand their son's decision to join a religion unknown to them. The son, Tommie has joined the Hare Krishna movement and the parents, especially Charlie do not take it well. I was carefully looking at their treatment of the Hare Krishna group as I have had some experience with them myself, and I must say it was the most balanced and meticulous depiction of the 'sect' I have ever seen. Real mature. And David Hunt Stafford has played a marvelous role.

The rest of the episode also fits in well with this main plot and allows Lou's character to shine. The pacing is pretty good and so is the story-telling. Perfect 10 from my side. Bravo!!
