January 17, 2022 9:43 PM - Season 2, Episode 3 - Subscribe

After noticing a change in Eli’s behavior, the Gemstone siblings dig deeper into their father’s mysterious past.

The kids investigate the last night. The men stack wrong; they are soft on fundamentals. The kids forget Eli's birthday. Eli betrays his children. Kelvin enforces discipline. Junior plays a car prank.

Everything between and including BJ describing his roller skating adventures to Judy pulling out her magnifying glass was brilliant.

I also hope that the gravy machine at Fancy Nancy's doesn't exist in the real world.

I did not believe Eli was the murderer at the end of episode 2, but the number of guesses it would have taken me to reach "accidentally cut his balls in an impromptu manscaping session in a hairstylists bathroom" as the source of the blood on his pants approaches infinity.

I can never get enough of the three Gemstone children attempting to problem solve. I would love the actors to do an episode of Taskmaster in character.

miguelcervantes, I've been to a place in Oklahoma where one most definitely does. It's not as sophisticated or nice, seems more like it was strung together by a wannabe mad scientist working at this place, but it dispenses so many goops. It was crustily disgusting.

It feels like every episode makes me reflect with awe upon at least one performer/character combo, and it’s never the same performer. This time around, BJ just left me gobsmacked.
