First was the Murtaugh kick and now someone asked if Murtaugh is the handsome black man. Is Damon Wayans the writer now ?
For me the thing that sticks out even more than the girl thinking Damon Wayans is a "handsome man" . I thought that was sweet. What sticks out to me is the fight Murtah has with his wife. First off it's a stupid fight to have "oh no my wife when she was a teen married some guy". Who cares? She married me and had kids with me and- here the kicker, she's not in anyway interested in him. I'll never understand this fight. At least on shows like Friends Ross was confronted with Pablo in his face. He had to meet him and that inspired jealousy. But this is a name. There's zero reason to be jealous.
Then on top of that with absolutely no inciting introspection or discusison with anyone he decides he doesn't care. Like why not just start there Murtah. I mean dang man I love ya and your wife and your marriage and I actually jive with what you were telling Bailey about how your wise elder act is just that an act. But then getting legit angry at your wife for being divorced is not that big a deal at this point in your marriage.
Ok that fight really is centry to everything I didn't like about this episode. The rest of it was basically everything I want in a basic LW episode. It's not overly deep. It's not overly cheesy. It had stakes I cared about enough to invest. It's not the greatest episode but it's better than average simply by being ideal.
Huh. A tv show about cops that blatantly show harboring a fugitive illegal alien. And make the border agent the bad guy. Only in LA.
