What You Need To Know:
“The Wagon” episode of Netflix’s TV sitcom MR. IGLESIAS dives right into the topic of alcoholism. Gabe goes to an AA meeting where he meets a woman he finds attractive. However, the woman is the mother of Walt, one of Gabe’s students. So, Gabe tries to avoid her. Meanwhile, Gabe tries to get another teacher, Tony, to go to a gambling recovery group. As they sit in the teacher’s lounge, Gabe accidentally drinks alcohol from the coach’s mug, which Gabe thought contained only water. Gabe feels guilty for breaking his sobriety, but Walt’s mom comforts him.
On some levels, “The Wagon” is an endearing episode. The characters deal compassionately with a sensitive topic that many people in the real world have undergone. The episode extols recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous. Also, one teacher has a classroom rule to “Work Hard and Be Nice.” However, the episode has several off-color or lewd jokes and references, plus brief foul language. Also, a New Age teacher says the Universe has “enlightened” her. MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for “The Wagon” episode of MR. IGLESIAS.
