Lethal Weapon: (S01E09) “Jingle Bell Glock”

Review: I want to say that ‘Jingle Bell Glock’ is a very humorous title. This is the episode that starts to raise questions about Miranda’s death. A Mexican cartel drug lord pushed a woman off of a balcony. Turns out the guy who did it was someone Riggs almost caught when he was in Texas….

Lethal Weapon: (S01E08) “Can I get a Witness?”

Review: OMG Murtaugh is a motorcycle guy. He spent the entire episode trying to convince everyone that he was. He brought a motorcycle, which Trish says he can ride on sunny Sundays, and saves Rigg’s butt because of it. Only then did people believe him, though they were still pretty shocked. He took Trish on…

Lethal Weapon: (S01E07) “Fashion Police”

Review: The episode starts with a seemingly normal family on vacation. The father of the family is actually a drug lord or assassin for a drug lord. I forget. He kills a guy in his hotel room and then dumps the body.  Cut to Riggs and Murtaugh.  Riggs is dreaming about his wife and she’s…

Lethal Weapon: (S01E06) “Ties that Bind”

Review: A solid episode overall. Nothing to0 ground shattering.  Murtaugh’s daughter sent bra and panty pictures to her boyfriend. Riggs and Murtaugh confronted him and he had the audacity to not know who Murtaugh was talking about because he has so many girlfriends. Rather than get a beat down, the boyfriend, a known pick pocket,…

Lethal Weapon: (S01E05) “Spilt Milk”

Review: This was another mirror episode but instead of mirroring the partnership it was about presenting someone much like Riggs but showing what can happen without the kind of support system Riggs had and what may happen now that that support system is gone. He is working on a new support system in this new environment but he…

Lethal Weapon: (S01E04) “There Goes The Neighborhood”

Review: “Bad things happen in every neighborhood.” – Trish Murtaugh  I know it’s only episode 4 but I think Lethal Weapon is really hitting it’s stride. It’s balancing the procedural, with the buddy cop comedy, and throwing in a pinch of the feels for Riggs every so often.  The episode starts out with Murtaugh and…

Lethal Weapon: (S01E03) “Best Buds”

Review:  This episode was by far the cutest. Hold on to your hats while I explain myself because I know some crazy stuff happened in the episode.  The episode revolves around the robbery of an armored truck that was carrying money from legitimate pot dealers. Turns out it was the pot dealers themselves that stole…

Lethal Weapon: (S01E02) “Pilot: Surf n Turf Part 2”

Review: Last episode was a back and forth between whether or not Riggs and Murtaugh will be partners. This episode was all about providing the Murtaughs with more information about Riggs and solidifying their “adoption” of him.  The episode starts with a naked man, presumed dead, laying on the beach (certain places conveniently covered by seaweed…sorry hetero ladies…and gay…

Lethal Weapon: (S01E01) “Pilot”

Review: When I heard FOX would be adapting Lethal Weapon into a television series I immediately thought…please don’t let them fudge this up as badly as CBS fudged up Rush Hour. Surprisingly (and delightfully) FOX put their best foot forward with this pilot episode. The episode started off by introducing the audience to Riggs and…
