FtL 506 – Suburban Beat

80’s housewives team up to crack an incredibly inappropriate case, but tbf the cops are shit.

Our first Failure to Launch for 2020 is the super-1985 Suburban Beat, the story of 4 suburban housewives thrown together by circumstance (they wanted to) to solve the murder of their friend.

I say friend, but to be honest they’re kinda glib about the whole thing. This quickly changes, however, as the details of the murder become more and more serious, forcing them to come face to face with the dark underbelly of Middle America-

I lied. They stay just as glib, but the rest of that stuff happens.
