Once again, it sounds like episode number 2 has the better potential. I almost wish they wouldn't air them back to back like this in a way so we could have our Sunny fix longer, but I'll take it any way FX chooses to dish it out.

...And yet another non-Charlie member of the gang has (apparently, going by the title) banged the waitress. I eagerly await "Sweet Dee Bangs the Waitress" in Season 5...

It amazes me the waitress still associates with any of them after the shit they've done to her.

I love the description of basically how this show came to be at the beginning of the first ep from Dee (I'm gonna buy a camcorder and film all those characters I created over the last few years and put it on YouTube so I can get discovered )

I LOVED the first episode... you just knew Charlie was going to bean her with that volleyball... but it was still funny.

The second episode... was funny too, but there were long stretches where I didn't laugh. It seems like ever since FX went to the whole "back-to-back episodes" thing, there's one good one and one "not quite as good" one.

Of course, Sunny is funnier than every other show on TV, save 30 Rock and The Office (most of the time), so a "not quite as good" episode is worth 1000 Worst Weeks.

"Let's see, W...W..."
"My name doesn't start with a W."
"Here it is! Waitress (Coffee Shop). Ohh, one star, not good."

Also, the whole bit where Dennis and Charlie are listening in to Mac and the waitress on the walkie talkie had me in stitches. I think, in general, though, this pair of episodes wasn't quite as strong as last week's. But I'm glad to see Green Man return!

That was hilarious. You know, I've seen more than my fair share of porn and always wondered who got off on that balls/ass shot. Guess Dennis does.

Another two solid episodes. Loved Mac's unapologetic explanation for why the two sluts got picked to be on the billboard.

The second ep was great, and Wasted Charlie is my new favorite gimmick from this show. I hope it's brought back.

Not sure what it is about the waitress, but I find her to be incredibly cute and never fail to feel bad for her during episodes she's in. This time, though, she sort of one-upped the gang, which was nice.

They need to do the same thing for Rickety Cricket - his life has been so thoroughly destroyed and he's so pathetic that it's getting hard to laugh when the gang screws him over yet again.

It was strange to see a Dee and Frank-free episode. A by-product of Kaitlin Olson's back injury?

I am in the camp of liking the second episode better.

*FAP* *FAP* *FAP* was hilarious...reminds me of Dave Attel's line "Like a boot stuck in mud only wetter."

"I got Chinese Checkers"
"Uhhh yeah....that's....kind of....foriegn to....me"

"I think he wants to be you getting banged by me in your apartment"
"Uuuhhhh ewww...that's like roleplay!"

"The further and wider I go, that flatter I become! Like a starfish!"

I absolutly love this show!

Over and out!

She's definitely a cutie.



(And Charlie's real-life wife, which makes her disgust for "Charlie" that much funnier.)

I found the YouTube stuff in the first ep to be hilarious, but didn't find the billboard plot quite as funny. The second episode was excellent all around.

Billboard episode with the youtube videos was great, the waitress episode was good too but I liked the first one better. GREEN MAN!!!

I also like how Dennis was sporting the track suit he and Mac wore during a scene in Hundred Dollar Baby.
