    I am fine with my fellow TV.com users giving this episode ahigh score. I have no problem with them enjoying it, but I just hated this episode. There was no story, I like my comedies to be well-written and have a point. I did not find the chaos and the drinking and the yelling funny. Maybe that is why I couldn't stand the episode. Maybe. I just think Sunny has gotten lazy. They believe they are so gifted comedically that anything they give us will be gold, but I don't feel that way back about them.

    Sorry, but I absolutely hated this.moreless

    This episode opens with the gang being bored, like many other episodes, so they expect mac to have some sort of scheme for them to get involved in. When he doesn't, they decide to play CharDee McDennis, a game they created before frank joined the gang. This is the first episode to take place ENTIRELY inside the bar, before there have been some episodes that took place inside the bar mostly but at one point they went outside(The gang dances their asses off, the gang gets held hostage). When I saw who wrote this i knew it would be a great episode and it actually exceeded my expectations. I'm not even gonna begin to explain how the board game works because that would take too long so your gonna have to watch the episode to find out, and hopefully you won't be disappointed, and if you are disappointed with this episode then this just isn't your show and you just need to move on.



    Favourite part of the episode: "Dennis is asshole, why charlie hate."



    Least favourite part of the episode: This has nothing to do with the quality of the episode but id just like to point this out. They are selling the Chardee McDennis board game on the website. Now why is this a problem you ask? Its the exact same price as the season 6 blu ray. So your basically paying 40 dollars for some wood when you could probably just make it yourself for way cheaper. Im a huge fan of the show but I would never pay that much for that.

    This episode was hilarious! I laughed and laughed and laughed. I also realized I've played a similar game when drunk. It involved standing in front of a dart board while someone threw darts at my head. They should make this game. Drunken morons the world over would buy it. They'd get hurt, but it would be their own fault!

  • The game of games!

    For me, it's always evident when one of the main cast members writes an episode. The gang just seems a lot more loose and the writing seems remarkably tight. Sometimes, when somebody else steps in that's not one of the actors, the episode can feel a little different than the earlier episodes, and while I'm not sure we'll ever get another Season 1 or 2 type episode, the insanity that the show brings on a week to week basis now is incredible.

    This episode is pretty simple: the gang is bored so they break out an old board game they made up awhile ago when they were bored. The game is called "Chardee Macdennis," and the rules barely matter. The whole point of the game is to win and get as drunk as possible in the process. The gang clearly knows how to play, and while we may be a bit confused watching, the fun of the episode is watching the gang just go bananas.

    There was just too many funny moments throughout the episode: Mac trying to pull up the board even though it was nailed down, Charlie eating the grapes instead of just holding them in his mouth, the fancy-schmancy music played during the pre-level interludes... the episode just felt fun and moved at such a rapid pace that it feels like we just barely got to have fun with them.

    I've been reading some reviews that people wrote about the episode and am mind-boggled to see some call this the worst of the season. I would go as far to say that it's one of the better ones, up there with "Frank Reynolds' Little Beauties" and "Sweet Dee Gets Audited."moreless
