He would enjoy administering the single antidote to Leia. He would enjoy it very much indeed..


Dennis being a maniac is like my favourite thing about this show.

At first I wasn't really into the episode because it felt too predictable. She's gonna get big, go back to her old ways and crash, return to status quo. But holy poo poo did that payoff come out of nowhere and was amazing.

Also, I'm sure it's obvious, but I feel it's worth pointing out anyway that Dennis was literally perusing through a "binder full of men" while looking for someone for Dee.

I thought it was suspicious the paparazzi would care about Dee's appearance on Conan, but I ignored it figuring "its just tv." Then the reveal came and I realized I was Dee all along.

Bravo, show. Bravo.

Frank as shown time and time again that he will spend as much as his fortune as needed when it comes to his kids .... being taught humiliating, awful "lessons." Remember when he bought all of those luxurious and extravagant Christmas gifts that Dennis and Dee had always wanted, for himself?

I was expecting that it was going to be Dennis pulling the strings at the end. But that was way better.

I think that's exactly what the show expected us to think. That and her gagging on Conan.

Barf Wight posted:

Hahaha holy poo poo Dennis actually trying to do the loving D.E.N.N.I.S system on his sister, more specifically that speech at the plane was very reminiscent of his Inspire Hope speech from when he was D.E.N.N.I.S-ing the pharmacist.

That was a great callback.

Criminal Minded posted:

That is the cruelest episode of television I have ever seen.

Which for this show is fantastic.

I was thinking the same thing alongside the Scott Tenorman episode of South Park.

That reveal made the whole episode worth it. I really wasn't 100% sold on Dee's rise to fame, and I think for a lot of us the ending was less, "Oh wow they got me" and more "Hhahaha I loving knew it!"

Just saw it, fantastic ending I really thought she was going to end up choking on Conan. Like it would cut from going on stage to her and the gang at the bar where they would be showing her choking on tv over and over...was pleasantly surprised.

Overall though it was a decent ep, middle kinda lost my attention for a bit.

Can you believe they are already in their 9th season? And going so strong!

This has to be one of the best season openers for Sunny ... I'll have to re-watch the first seasons now.

And I really hope they are following up on "Broke Dennis" - this would be hilarious!

I think the whole series went up in December. As a general rule FX isn't great about giving Netflix new seasons in a timely manner. Though Season 4 of The League is already up.

Most comedies start drastically dropping in quality after 6 or 7 seasons, but not Sunny. I think last season might have been the best so far.

If you watch the episode of Conan with Charlie Day guesting for Pacific Rim they actually recorded Conan's line during the interview.

The highschool reunion episode is on right now. I loving love it. I just realized that the reason Brad was giving out name tags was just so he could beat the poo poo out of Charlie had he shown up. Then I was reminded Mac is Ronald McDonald.

The look of childish glee on Mac's face during Landslide's set, when he says "I bet his diarrhea is really nasty!" is amazing. He's so happy to think such gross thoughts!

When Charlie says to Dee, "You're in that sweet spot between suicidal and already dead that comedians seem to thrive in" it seemed too true to be funny.

Hell, Seinfeld started to show signs of fatigue by Season 8. Always Sunny has arguably had it's two best seasons with 7 and 8 and there doesn't seem to be any indication of a slowdown in quality though I kinda hope they do wrap it up with Season 10 because nothing lasts forever.

They can stop doing Always Sunny when I'm dead.

There's honestly no show I like half as much as Always Sunny. I don't want it to end, they've only just begun their second act, after all.

trying to resist the fear

I consider Sunny to be very similar to Seinfeld in many ways, a spiritual successor of sorts, and I guess it's no surprise that Seinfeld is my favorite show and Sunny is close behind.

But yeah, in terms of pure 20-minute episodes, Seinfeld had 180 and Sunny will hit 100 midway through this season. Seinfeld hit that milestone midway through Season 6, before Larry David even left and it was still dishing out some of the best episodes like The Race.

Sunny has a comparatively smaller but just as memorable set of regulars that make up fictional Philly, but their devotion to the lore of their own show is right up there with Seinfeld.
