In this “reimagining” of the beloved occasionally moderately funny 80’s comedy series, a disillusioned high-powered executive, tired of a life of moral compromise, leaves Wall Street to run a cozy little hotel in a small Vermont town. His dream of rural tranquility is shattered when he runs afoul of Larry, Darryl, and Darryl, local psychotic inbred marijuana-smugglers who rule the town. While initially packing up his Benz and running for his life, Bob soon recognizes the clear moral choice before him, and is reborn as a shotgun-wielding avenger/hotelier in a place where violence is the only law, and everybody’s baked. This is not your uncle from North Jersey’s Newhart.
Read the whole thing for the A-Team, the Beverly Hillbillies, and Knight Rider.
