I lost my shit when Frank admitted he'd eaten the crow

Mac staying behind to oil his glove was awesome.

Man, Ryan Howard is almost skinny now. He kinda looks weird.

Mac's "God ... Dammit!" when the bird swooped in and caught the rabbit made me lose my head.

If time travel is ever invented the first thing on my list is to go back to my senior year of high school and make "I have cash in my pocket and desire in my heart" my yearbook quote.

One of the best episodes of the season. And this has been a pretty strong season. I loved the parallel story threads of things getting better and better for Dennis and Charlie, while getting simultaneously worse and worse for Mac, Frank, and Sweet Dee. It was also nice to switch up the usual pairings, since we hardly ever get a Dennis-and-Charlie story any more.

My favorite moment? The text message.

"No...nononononononononoNO."

<Yes!>

I lost it when Frank had his moment with the rabbit. He has the ability to contort his face into the most bizarre positions.

"I would have let you turn me into swiss cheese." Christ. That was both disturbing and hilarious.

Charlie making it rain and then nibbling on asparagus was just glorious.
post #207 of 260
favorite moment was when it showed Dennis having a catch with Utley. The whole Dennis and Charlie montage at the benefit saved the episode for me.
post #208 of 260
Charlie freaking out in the trunk was great.

The unexpected use of "Glory Days" during the montage was exceptional.

Love how Dee fell for the rabbit and Mac's "God....Damnit" was delivered perfectly.

Yeah, I loved his progression through the episode. First he is indifferent to animals, then he loves them because a rabbit stared at him in a creepy way for 10 minutes, then he hates them because he ate infected crow meat. Perfect logic for the character.

I was disappointed by the bunny getting eaten by the hawk at the end but only because it was kind of lazy, I've seen basically that same joke where someone bonds with an animal then releases it and it gets snatched up or killed right away on TV a few times. 3rd Rock from the Sun did it and I think The Simpsons did, as soon as they let the bunny go I was like "Oh, here comes the hawk or whatever" and then it actually happened and I was like "Well, they sure phoned that joke in." But whatever, Mac's reaction was still funny.

How has no one mentioned Tom freakin Sizemore in this? I like how Sunny gets these seemingly washed up actors in fun little parts sometimes.
post #211 of 260
My DVR cut off at the end so I only saw Dennis and Charlie hanging on each other after Utley and Howard left. What else happened?

Dee released the rabbit at Mac's insistance, only to see it get carried off by a hawk.

Charlie and Dennis chartered a private plane back to Philly and texted a picture of Dennis and Chase Utley to Mac just to taunt him.

Mac, Dee and Frank were about to hitch a ride with Tom Sizemore when the episode ended.

With "The League" having an hour long finale this week. Does anyone know if that means we get an hour long Philly Finale next week?

I can't explain how jazzed I am that the Christmas special is being aired as the season 6 finale. Now I can finally own it when season 6 hits DVD, and not pay the outrageous price for the special on DVD.

So then, this week is the real season finale.

Kinda sucks for them to do that with the christmas special, especially if your like me and bought it on DVD last year (it wasn't really all that expensive...maybe 12 bucks as long as you didn't get it on Blu).

I completely lost track with this show for most of this season, and only just played catch up with it over the last few days. I'm not at all a TV person by any stretch (part of why I lost track with this show so easily: I'm completely not used to following TV shows at all), but this show is just amazing.

The whole Lethal Weapon 5 bit completely blindsided me. Absolutely pitch perfect and had me giggling like a lunatic for hours and hours afterward. Is it wrong of me to not only find the gang's Lethal Weapon 5 to be a vastly better film than Lethal Weapons 3 and 4, but also to consider it a canonical entry in the franchise?* Its "tainted tap water" plot is certainly no more out there than Riggs and Murtaugh opening LW4 by battling some comic book supervillain wannabe with a flamethrower that's rampaging in the middle of downtown L.A. for seemingly no real reason at all. The prospect of an extended version can only further cement this for me.

The best part about it was that not only were Mac and Dennis completely stressing over absolutely nothing with regards to the blackface (maybe its just me, but I was totally expecting it to look WAY more offensive than it actually wound up turning out to be: it was actually kinda tasteful and well done in a bizarre sort of way, or at least about as much as it could've been), but that Frank's corrupt Native American casino owner villain was probably about several thousand times more racially offensive and absolutely NO ONE in the gang seemed to even remotely pick up on this or give two shits, not even in passing. I love that.

And no way in hell was that sex scene not a reference to The Room. No way. In hell. I don't care what Howerton might claim to the contrary.

I also find Charlie's batshit fear of leaving Philly to be one of my favorite things about his character, something I dearly wished the show riffed on a lot more before finally getting him out to Atlantic City this season. That the gang had to tie him up, bag his head, and lock him in the trunk just to get him to go with them (along with Charlie afterwards shrieking "Why are there TREES everywhere?!" in complete, stark terror at the sight of what's probably his first time ever in an actual forest) had me in stitches almost as much as Dee's sloberingly drunken rendition of Runaway Train did last season.

And yeah, I totally geeked at the sight of Sizemore. Holy fucking hell was he great.

*Don't worry, I'm only half kidding. I think...

I agree that sucks for those who bought it. I never saw it for 12 bucks, ever. It was always around 20. But, that doesn't matter, because I wouldn't pay 12 for it anyway. I wouldn't have paid more than 5 bucks for it. As it's really just the length of two episodes, why should I spend much more than how much two episodes would cost? I guess I just had a huge issue with the fact that I can buy a new season for 25 bucks or less and the Christmas Special was nearly that much on its own.

So I downloaded it fully anticipating it would be packaged with the 5th season set. I am glad my assumptions were just a year off.

"I'll have a bump."

Quite liked Charlie's belief that the sperm eats the egg to get strong.

Happy they were aware that a baby would mess up their chemistry.
post #218 of 260
Was glad to see the Bridge people return. Especially the conversation about the jean shorts. Dee constantly ripping on guys to wear them down into having sex is a great revelation. So was the Tranny and Miller High Life guy being the actual parents.

"please don't throw me in the trash"

It was a pretty good episode to wrap up what has been a down season. They finished strong starting with the Halloween episode. Here's to a return to form next year.

For real? I found this season quite refreshing, and a gigantic step up from some of 3 and most of 4 and 5.

I dunno...something felt off in the early going. The show is still the best thing on the network and I'm not saying it wasn't a funny season. It just took a while for them to get into stride. Once they did it was as good as it's always been.
post #221 of 260
i agree with paul, and decided it was the opening two parter with dennis getting married. It felt off to me for some reason.

I also think it sucks this week was the real finale, and they are re-airing a year old special thats already on dvd as if its new.

I still think the opener would have been better if they had aired it as an hour long insted of a 2 parter and kept Mac's angry religious storyline going.

And yeah as discussed above, re-running the Christmas episode as the finale stinks. Especially if you bought the DVD last year and plan on getting the Season 6 DVD when it comes out.

But this did feel like the true finale with the picture of the real baby at the end.

Loved every second of this ep, especially the fact that Dee drunkly berates people into sleeping with her. The coke party/interrogation was glorious. It time a new potential popped up, I smiled at their respective past story lines. And I had totally forgotten Dee hooked up with the old Asian guy. Dennis was indeed on fire with his Thor speech and Bernie plot. And the picture of the actual baby was a nice capper. Sucks that I already own the X-Mas special, but happy that others will get to see it. It's glorious.

Good season, but not great. Still ranks higher than the past few seasons overall, though Seasons 4 & 5 still have some of my all-time favorite episodes. There's no way this season can be called bad though. Not even close.
post #224 of 260
Oh, by no means was I saying it was a bad season. I just think it was down from the past. It's still the best show on the network by a country mile.
post #225 of 260
LOUIE and JUSTIFIED are way too good to declare SUNNY best by that wide a margin, especially since this season was a bit of a step down at times. Still plenty of greatness though, and I really liked this finale (not counting the christmas thing as a true season finale, even if that's technically what they're making it).
post #226 of 260
The slight zoom on Mac's face at the end was a little sappy but really sweet, I like how in the midst of all the insanity he and Kaitlin Olson still had that little "Hey guys, we're new parents!" moment on TV.

So are they married now? Did she not change her name and they just gave the baby his last name? Oh yeah, and Axel Lee?
post #227 of 260
Loved the whole episode but my favorite line was as everybody is leaving the hospital. Bill Ponderosa and Ben the soldier are crowded around the coke baggie and Bills is saying, "We'll get more. We'll get more."

Yeah saying "a country mile" may have been a bit much. Especially in the case of Louie. But I stand by my statement that Sunny is the best show on the network.
post #229 of 260
I prefer Archer as my favorite show in FX. And I love FX. Sons, League, Sunny, Justified, and Archer. Most of my shows are on FX. Great ending to the season.
post #230 of 260
Shit, I forgot Archer. Looking forward to the new season of that.

"Without the sunglasses, Weekend At Bernie's would be a very dark, strange tale."

So, so true.
post #232 of 260
While it's maybe not been their best season, it's been their most consistent for a while. The opening 2 parter was just ok, but after that it's been of a pretty high standard.

LOVED the conversation with Cutty from the Wire about the cut-offs. "You gotta take 'em off...you gotta take 'em off SON!"

I think Dennis has quickly become my favourite character. The conversation about the "Implications" when they buy the boat was great, as was his story about making out with an incredibly young girl at the movies. The Thor speech was just the icing on the cake.

Y'know, the show is sooo steeped in sarcasm and irreverence that I didn't--and don't--believe that was supposed to be a sincere moment. I felt like it was more about them taking the piss out of every network show that would play up such a sappy moment.

Yes. Yes. And Yes!
post #234 of 260
I'm constantly changing my mind about which character is my favourite, they've ALL got their moments, but I keep coming back to Frank. I have to rewatch every episode just so I can concentrate on DeVito's reactions. They're almost always counter to how a normal person would react. It's such an amazing physical performance.
post #235 of 260
I'd have to go with Charlie if only because he elevates any storyline in which he's paired with another character alone. His interactions with Mac in episodes like "Mac and Charlie: White Trash" are priceless. But he's equally priceless when paired with Dennis in episodes like "The Gang Hits the Road" or "The Gang Gets Extreme". The same could be said of Charlie's pairings with Frank ("The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby") and Dee ("Charlie Goes America All Over Everybody's Ass").

That being said, I think Dennis is hilarious.

And Mac (although people find him to be the weak link a lot of the time).

And Sweet Dee.

And Frank.

... I really love this show.
post #236 of 260
It's hard for me to pick a favorite. But if I had to it would probably be Dennis.

Charlie
Frank
Dennis

post #238 of 260
The great thing about watching Mac is that he can seemingly never keep a straight face. A lot of the time he seems to deliver his line and then need to look elsewhere, he's always on the verge of cracking up.

My favorite example of that is in the "Mac and Charlie Die" episode. While the two are hiding out on the roof, Charlie explains that he'll simply slurp up his hot dogs when all his teeth fall out. You can clearly see Mac lose it. As a result, I do the same thing.

Season 7 preview. Everything sounds amazing, but are they serious about Mac?!

 

Quote:

Rob McElhenney gained fifty pounds to play Mac this season. Why? For the sheer comedy of playing his character as a fat guy. “It’s been disgusting to watch him go through with this adventure,” said Charlie Day. “We were a little on the fence about it for his own personal health and safety,” he added, “but it has definitely made Mac a lot funnier.”

About goddamn time! There are some decent sitcoms on TV but this is by far my favourite. Whenever I need cheering up, I pop on an old episode.

Can't wait!

 

He kinda looks like Tyler Labine now.

Fat Mac, a realistic Pretty Woman, Frank's Brother....sign me up.

post #247 of 260

I laughed my ass off after just reading about the idea of fat Mac. Can't wait to see how he looks and how much shit the gang gives him all season. Love this show.

post #248 of 260

You just know fat Mac is going to be in total denial about his fatness for at least a few episodes.  At least Dennis will be there with his typical, unwavering support.  Should be marvelous.

Whatever it is really nice episode.

post #250 of 260

 Howerton and McElhenney were at Dunn's memorial service. Aside from the sadness of the event, Fat Mac is a glorious sight
