Disjointed cast 

Review of "Disjointed" 10/5/17 by Suzanne
Airs now on Netflix.

This sitcom stars Kathy Baker as an aging hippie who sells medical marijuana. Her son helps her, and she's got other employees. It's just not funny at all. I wonder why Kathy Baker would do this show. It's beneath her.  Just making jokes about people being stoned is not funny.

It's not surprising to me because I don't like most Netflix comedies. However, I had expected more because it's from Chuck Lorre, who has comedy hits like "Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory." I guess that explains why it's not on CBS.

Since it's on Netflix, there is strong language. I guess the series should be lauded for promoting the use of marijuana, which is now legal. Too bad you have to be stoned, I guess, to enjoy it.
