Entering its second season, LETHAL WEAPON combines action and drama with friendship and humor as it follows classic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, who are working a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. One has everything to live for, the other has nothing to lose - and in the season one finale Murtaugh found out just how far Riggs was willing to go.


Episode 13: Better Living Through Chemistry


Riggs and Murtaugh respond to the murder of an escaped patient of Dr Cahill's, and the question of the medic's competency is brought into question. However, the investigation brings to light a hidden scheme far bigger than they imagined. Meanwhile, Riggs' anger gets the better of him once again, causing Avery to consider whether or not he is fit to serve. Family tensions run high between Murtaugh and Trish, who need to make some big decisions. Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans star.


The great thing about this series is how it can be a very blunt instrument one minute, bludgeoning us with heavy-handed storylines, then a delicate scalpel the next, cutting to the heart of its characters. Both sides are on show here in a story that also delivers a couple of moments of gorgeous comic timing worthy of a sitcom.

The main plotline (and the cases-of-the-week increasingly feel like distractions) has Riggs and Murtaugh visiting yet another hostile bar full of bikers and thugs. “Why can’t we ever get sent into, like, a petting zoo?” wonders Murtaugh, reasonably enough. And for connoisseurs of Riggs’s messed-up psyche, there’s a whopping revelation on the source of his anger.
