While Netflix does not release viewing numbers, Disjointed left critics feeling dazed and confused. (But not in the good way.)

“There’s not enough weed in the Golden State to wring consistent laughs from a show that’s mostly as stale as an unwashed bong,” sniffed Brian Lowry of CNN.com.

Despite the critical slings, Deadline says Lorre plans to shop the show to another network, or streaming service.
