"All right, suburbia always looks bleak, but when mom dips into dad's meth stash, and he goes nuts and puts her head through the bathroom mirror, things are off to a rough start for the third issue of this hilariously dark sitcom-and things get a lot more grisly from there. Our typical American housewife has finally had just a little too much of her hideous, deranged family, and she takes a simple word of advice from TV's perfect 1950s mom-'Discipline.'"
