  • So clever

    10
    Such a low rating for this episode, I wonder if people even got what it really was about (not that it's not pretty obvious). So packed with references and metaphores, like this one:



    "Why have we never received this form? Well, we've actually sent you the form many times in the past, and as I recall, it always comes back covered in fecal matter, urine, and racial



    Or Mac exploding, failing so miserably at being "pretty and benign". Or the "will they or won't they" thing between Mac and Dee (check out who they are married to in real life). Definitely one of my favourite episodes.moreless
  • Loved this...

    9.0
    Totally agree with Dayman90, this was by far the best Sunny episode in quite some time. Loved the scene at Suds, pretty much the epitome of every lame happy hour bar in your financial district... and of course, a clear metaphor for some of the more "popular" comedies out there.



    "what's with all the loud fake color? I mean where's the subtlety?" - Mac
  • The Gang Desperately

    7.0
    The episode certainly had its moments, I liked the analysis of the bar, and the African-American friend issue, but there were too many stupid attempts at being edgy that just came off as stupid attempts at being edgy.



    Funny, but I expect more from this show.
  • Comedy at it's best!

    9.5
    Best episode of the season so far for sure and best in a while. Really great formula to this episode can't believe they've never won an emmy let alone even been nominated! BS!
