The Farting Sex Tourist - S1-E4

Stupidity: Joel finds prints in Serbian and is stressed because they'll never find someone to translate Serbian in Santa Clarita, goes to great lengths to interact with the principal's Serbian grandmother, etc. Google translate can understand Serbian just fine, but this doesn't even occur to him.

Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up - S2-E28

Stupidity: The whole plot is based upon 6 people not being able to spot the seventh (odd man out). We can eliminate the couples, the driver remembers the pretty blond getting on the bus and the crazy old guy would stick in anybodies memory, so it leaves only the sour old guy in the coat and hat as the martian.Also all the troopers has to do was ask for IDs which they do but quit after they ask the crazy old guy for his.

Haven picture

Who, What, Where, Wendigo? - S2-E10

Stupidity: Dwight, Audrey, and Nathan all know Dwight's trouble is that all bullets are attracted to him, so why is he with them when they go looking for the killer, knowing every one is using a gun?

Sleigh House - S1-E9

Stupidity: Smoke and flames travel up. Why then did Vic attempt and eventually escape by going up the laundry chute? Seems that exit would have been filled with smoke and soon after fire.

Suggested correction: True, but Vic had no other way to escape as she was surrounded by flames and all exits were blocked by fire. The laundry chute was the only logical way to try an escape from the inferno, desperate as it may be.
