Felt like old Sunny, not the best episode they've done but definitely back on track

As a hockey and Sunny fan this episode was great. Cricket, Waitress, and Ben on the podcast were great.

The Mac training montage was great.

I liked the callback to Cricket's neck getting cut.

I felt this was the most unfunny episode of Sunny that I can remember.

Pretty good episode. The podcast stuff had me laughing.

AS has not been bringing the funny this season. I'm almost to the point where I'm regretting recommending this to others..

Granted there have been a few bright spots, but it's been pretty damn painful the rest of the time.

It's been tame and unfocused this season.

The first two episodes were the worst episodes of Sunny yet, it improved a little in episode 3 and imo, episode 4 at least felt like previous seasons (the pay off for the podcast was weak as hell, though).

Didn't dig it much but then again this season as a whole has been kinda of week. Had some good laughs but just so far I don't feel this is a great season. I did like the duster showing up again.

The podcast stuff was a cut above the hockey stuff. For some reason Dee playing with the sound effects had me cracking up.

This season clearly needs more of the waitress.

Mac instantly twirling the hockey stick like it's a weapon cracked me up.

Shouldn't you guys be in the "The Office" thread

I think it's as good as it's always been.

I think it shows up on Hulu, but only after 8 days.

I'm surprised by the hate. I thought last season was just OK, with The League being miles funnier.... I think Sunny has rebounded this year with some very decent eps so far (The League is still awesome too though). I loved the marriage storyline and the boat episode was classic. This week was decent, the Mac and Charlie stuff was hilarious.

I thought last season rated as one of the best personally, and it easily bested The League for me. This season, The League is miles ahead and Sunny seems to have lost its footing.

I think it's pretty narrow for me, but I'd put The League slightly ahead. The last two Sunnys have been great, but the marriage crap sucked. The first ep of The League was lame, but the rest have been great.

Just got around to watching this today. The bit with Mac skating up and pulling out the tape was fucking classic.

I have a theory that the odd numbered seasons of this show are amazing, but the even numbered seasons are sometimes downright awful.

I feel like my theory is ringing true at the moment.

Season Four had Wildcard (the BEST episode of Sunny, followed only by "The Gang Runs for Office" from season TWO) so your theory is wrong.
