Steve Zahn is Adrian's newly found half-brother who escaped prison and is accused of killing a woman while on the run. He turns up at Adrian's house seeking his aid.

the moron's half brother
31 January 2018 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

SPOILER: Neither moron brother is of the few laughs i ever got from this show was when brooke adams was in the cast, now she was funny and should be used more often, like every surprise on titus welliver being the murderer...he can always be counted on the be the bad, evil guy...not even a stretch of the imagination can make me believe these morons are half brothers...all the quirks have become so mundane whenever they don't occur no one misses them
