    A completely pointless episode, but one that definitely had its funny moments. The scenes with Dennis implying that he was probably going to try to "have his way" with women at sea by force was hilarious, as was Mac's reaction to this plan.



    I liked the fact that the episode actually did not take place inside the bar; Sunny needs to leave Paddy's Pub more often and try new things.



    It definitely is not the worst episode of this show, as it was actually really funny, but plotwise this just seemed so amateurish and really thrown together like it was finished at the last moment.moreless
  • "The Gang Buys a Boat"

    9.5
    This episode opened with Mac, Dennis, and Charlie in a mans office preparing to buy a boat. They negotiate with him and ultimately don't get what they want. So now they have to fix the boat up, except for Dennis and Mac of course. They leave Charlie, Frank, and Dee with the boat so they can get boating equipment and Frank throws the keys in the water on accident. This episode is a lot better than the 2 part premiere which we had to wait 2 weeks for and probably will be one of the best in the season. So everyone wants to do something different Dee wants to dance on the boat, Charlie and frank want to get shrimp and endangered catfish for that good endangered tang. Dennis' purpose for buying the boat was to take the women below deck and that way they cant refuse because they have nowhere to run, not that hes gonna hurt them. Mac doesn't really like the idea but eventually gives into it. I'm not gonna spoil the ending but lets just say its exactly what it should be on this show.

    *Spoilers Below*



    2 favorite quotes of the episode:

    Mac: Are you gonna hurt these women

    Dennis: No im not gonna hurt these women! Why would I ever hurt these women?! I feel like your not getting this at all.

    *woman turns*

    Dennis: Well don't look at me like that you certainly wouldn't be in any danger

    Mac: So they are in danger?



    Frank: Anybody want anymore catfish?!

    Charlie: Definitely give me another one of those, and you can taste that sort of endangered tang.moreless
  • Best episode of the season, and reminiscent of "The Gang Hits The Road," which was one of the funniest episodes last season.

    9.0
    I'm probably not the only person who found the two part season premiere somewhat disappointing. It had it's fair share of moments, but I expected a little more, especially since Season 5 was right up there as one of the best seasons of the show yet (although tv.com ratings wouldn't have you believe that.. but then again, I haven't trusted those ratings in years). However, the gang took it back to basics, and we got a simple yet chaotic episode about the gang buying a boat. And just like last year's "The Gang Hits The Road," we follow the group attempting to do something fun and never seeming to get too far away from where they began. In fact, these two episodes could be symbolic of the show as a whole.



    Using the money from d*cktowel.com (from the Kitten Mittens episode last season), Mac, Dennis and Charlie decide to buy a boat to have parties and catch shrimp. However, did anybody think that they'd actually get to enjoy the boat? Think again. Despite their slow journey towards eventual failure, we get some hilarious moments along the way. Dee dancing like an inflatable dancing thing at a used car lot was perfect, and you'd be a statue to not laugh when she starts dancing side by side the inflatable thing. Charlie and Frank were amazing as well, with Charlie becoming obsessed with the trash found underneath the boat ("This must be a horse's tooth or something! And a bullet!") while Frank seems to not understand the difference between tossing something and throwing it overhand. As for Dennis and Mac, we get some great discussions about whether or not Dennis is buying the boat to rape women and scare them into sex or whether it's just the "implication" of that. Mac's face as Dennis tries to explain the difference between the implication of something and the real thing was hilarious, and I have a feeling we were as confused as Mac. Except we were laughing a lot more, I'm sure.



    Scattered all throughout is the gang's ability to effortlessly argue about the most pointless things. The argument on whether they were patronizing each other was great, especially since they carried it out all the way through the episode. And by the time we get to the end, I mean.. it's not really much of a surprise that the gang burnt the boat down. If anything, it was a little predictable (I called it about a minute into the episode), but overall, it was one of the best episodes of the last few seasons and I was glad to see the gang back in their element.moreless
  • "It's the implication!"

    Oh man, how awesome is it to have 2 great episodes of "Sunny" in a row again? This week's installment is completely stand-alone and is packed to the gills with classic "Sunny."



    Using the revenue generated by www.dicktowel.com, Dennis, Mac, and Charlie by a boat.



    I refuse to say more than that.



    Just know that to watch this episode means to know why Sweet Dee can be compared to a wacky-waving-inflatable-arm-flailing-tube-man, why "implications" are so hilariously disturbing, and exactly what happened in the great pirate/horse massacre.



    With the unbelievably and consistently funny plot and dialogue of this episode, I think I have to drop last week's from a 10 to a 9.6 because this episode is a solid 10/10. I haven't laughed so hard at sunny since "Mac And Charlie Die"moreless
