Just watched the 2nd episode of this season. It had some good parts and some bad parts. First, I think Rob Lowe's character is awful. I mean... it's just not funny. Him or his character, it's just not doing anything for me. The show got rid of Paul Schneider's Brendanawicz because he was slowly but surely killing the show, and I really hope they get rid of Lowe's character as well. Let him do his much more entertaining movie star character over on Californication this season, that actually looks funny. Ben isn't that great either, but he's a straight man role and at least he seems somewhat like a human being, unlike Lowe. I don't understand what they're doing with him, but I know I don't want it.
The other problem in this episode is the whole Leslie with a flu plot. I'm sorry, but this is retarded. I've had the flu, I'm sure all of us have had the flu in the past... and it didn't fucking make me hallucinate psychedelic imagery everything. That's just... that's stupid. It makes no sense and did not make me laugh. Getting the flu doesn't make you act crazy as a loon. I dunno what they were thinking, it was way over the top. Kinda felt like "Shia LaBouf's mom just ate a pot brownie in Transformers 2."
Ron Swanson and Andy were great as usual, really loved their male bonding scenes this episode. Five stars, bravo, A+, would watch again.
