'Raising Hope' season finale - 'Don't Vote for This Episode'Most teenagers go through phases where they're almost impossible to relate to, but Jimmy took it to a whole new level on the season premiere of 'Raising Hope' (Tue., 9PM ET on FOX). In a flashback to Jimmy's 18th birthday, we discovered that his parents were terrified of him.

For a family as poor as this one has been presented, we're not sure how Jimmy came up with enough money to get his black outlandish clothing and face make-up, but we can't deny how hilarious it was when they finally revealed his face as he shouted to Burt, "GET OUT!"

As an exaggeration of what most parents face, it brings a moment of relief that their own teenagers weren't quite that crazy. Luckily, Jimmy outgrew this phase. It was a huge departure from the gentle soul we've come to know this season, but at least his dim-witted charm was on display in his name: Drakkar Noir.

"Like the men's perfume, right?" Virginia asked him timidly.

"It means black dragon ship!" Jimmy shouted. At least Maw-Maw appeared completely unfazed by his appearance or behavior, and she was lucid at the time. At her age, though, she's probably seen it all by now anyway.
