So are they just re-doing Season 1 episodes with a new cast?

I mean, I'd watch that in a heart beat, but this sounds oddly familiar.

That would be hilarious, but I don't think so. The Sunny Wiki has some stills from this episode and it has the regular cast. I just chose to use the "new cast" promo pic for this post.

The promos with the new cast have been cracking me up... I've missed this show, glad it's back on.

Wasn't the best season opener by a long shot, still glad to have the gang back...

Okay, I now that of all the shows out there, this is probably not one to nitpick continuity errors. But why wasn't Dee afraid of old people anymore? And Pop pop was in a old folks home, why's he got an apartment?

This was definitely a weak episode, but I alwasy enjoy it and am really glad it's back.

Show was okay, no real hilarious moments for me. Sunny is at its best when it's dark and dangerous and last night's was neither.

Felt like a throw back to season 1 in tone. I loved it.

Cricket was great. "I mostly just clean up the poops, wash out the cages that kind of thing"

Is that Chael Sonnen?! I'm missing something. Time to go watch those promos, I guess...

Not a very strong opening, but I did like Mac's throwaway line about his "sudden and unfortunate" weight loss with no other explanation.

I loved Charlie's speech about the painting at the end with the braces. That was the definite highlight of the episode.
