So a musical body switch episode where they're all black people? Whatever, I'm glad this show is back

Never seen The Wiz!... but I thought tonight's opener was hilarious!

"And her come those policeman again!".... I mean... just wow.

I thought they actually mentioned that, then remembered it was from Olson's other show.

That ending made me laugh.

Great episode! Dare I say this was brilliant in respect of straddling today's racial problems? They covered every social problem between the races while still being non-partisan and not look like they were favoring either viewpoint. Only a show like this could do this type of episode as no major network would have the balls in fear of offending somebody.

They even found a way to make Black Lives Matter/All Lives Matter hilarious. Was a fantastic episode.

Love the show. Hated this episode. Just hated it.

Probably because I despise musicals. Singing shitty songs at random points in conversations.

Thought this episode was fantastic. Pretty much had a grin on my face throughout its entirety. A surprise season opener - looking forward to seeing how the season plays out.

I thought it was ok... there was definitely some funny stuff, but I prefer they do a "normal" episode instead (well, normal by Sunny's standards anyway). They did stuff like this a few times last season and it didn't do much for me.

No comments yet?

I got a lot of laughs out of this one, especially the finale with the "AIDS blood" in the water.

at Benioff and Weiss' cameos.

Charlie thinking a 16 ounce water bottle would be sufficent lubrication for that monster water slide.

I agree on the ending. The payoff of Frank telling the whole park he had AIDS was hilarious.

IMO this was top 3 funniest Sunny's ever. I laughed out loud numerous times. This season is 2 for 2.

Aids! Aids! Coming through! Not gay, the vaginal kind!

Right up there with The Simpsons trip to Mount Splashmore.
