Worst Week is a show that had a short run on CBS recently. It's, in essence, Meet The Parents, the TV Show. A few months ago, it was added to Netflix Instant, so I've revisited it -- twice. Finishing the second reviewing of the finale as I type this.
It's the most cringe-inducing television show I've ever seen in my life. Awkward in every sense of the word. You almost find it unenjoyable -- almost. Sam, the main character, played by Kyle Bornheimer, is a better horrible son-in-law than Ben Stiller could ever attempt to be. His charm, wit, and brilliant under-the-breath double-talking makes it possible for you connect with a character that otherwise deserves to get socked in the face -- a lot.
Sam's wife and her mother are fine characters; they do their job well enough. But the other reason to watch this show is RED.
Kurtwood Smith, to people from my generation, is known from his major role in the TV show "That 70's Show" as the grumpy parent to the main character. His role in this show isn't really a stretch, but it's always nice to have a little more Red in your life.
