Home Improvement, “What a Drag” (S7E16 – YouTube)

Similar to the above “very special episodes” in its pandering attitudes about marijuana (coming from Tim Allen, no less…he’s like a real-life Johnny Dakota here), but this Season 7 installment of the long-running, long-unfunny sitcom is also an outlier in that the child is an eager smoker rather than a mere patsy. In fact, the first half of the episode is structured like a mystery – Tim finds a bag of weed in the backyard, and so he and Jill set up a sting, staking out their children from Wilson’s backyard. As in the 7th Heaven episode, the Mom fesses up to being a teenage pothead who only stopped when her friend died from using the stuff, which is just insane.
