I just started the new season and I didn't even recognize Dee in the second episode when she was standing next to the Escape Room person.

This season has been a rushed mess, but ... I did not see this finale coming. Not one bit.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 8 November 2018 18:33 (one year ago) link

Yeah, that episode was everything I needed it to be.

I Never Promised You A Hose Harden (Eric H.), Friday, 9 November 2018 14:28 (one year ago) link

I didnt know what to make of that ending.

Οὖτις, Friday, 9 November 2018 15:05 (one year ago) link

I kinda disagree. I found the season spotty but not much more than the last season or three, and had plenty of highlights for me.

but while I thought the dance sequence was amazing, I found the rest of the episode shockingly short on jokes. Just having Frank bleeding a lot didn't really do it for me.

dan selzer, Friday, 9 November 2018 16:03 (one year ago) link

yeah it just wasn't funny. I kept thinking there was gonna be some joke at the end of the dance sequence that would tie it all together but... nope

Οὖτις, Friday, 9 November 2018 16:07 (one year ago) link

the dance sequence reminded me of their dance routine at the high school reunion

Οὖτις, Friday, 9 November 2018 16:07 (one year ago) link

Except that one did have a punchline where it turned out to be all in their head but actually terrible. This one did not. It actually reminded me a bit of the end of "Beau Travail!"

I did think the rest of the episode was terrible and even wondered if that was on purpose. A running gag of Frank sticking things up his nose to stop bleeding? Lame.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 9 November 2018 16:35 (one year ago) link

exactly

I'm basically in agreement with AV on this one. The tepid, meh-ness of the episode that led up to it, which set you up to expect another "lol they're not really killing George Michael choreography like they think they are" punchline, allowed Mac's earnest butterfly moment to soar on its own barely coherent terms.

I get why people wouldn't want that from this particular show. But, as a gay man who also has had a history of setting up self-sabotaging apparatuses to keep me from reaching self-actualization, it resonated like a tuning fork in my chest.

I Never Promised You A Hose Harden (Eric H.), Friday, 9 November 2018 16:38 (one year ago) link

yeah this is not a show that has ever trafficked in earnestness or genuine emotion so it was sort of jarring to see the sequence played (for lack of a better term lol) straight

Οὖτις, Friday, 9 November 2018 16:42 (one year ago) link

That's categorically not true. Dee wheeling down the hospital corridor with her surrogate alone.

I Never Promised You A Hose Harden (Eric H.), Friday, 9 November 2018 16:59 (one year ago) link

Frankly, it's the only thing that kept me coming back after roughly season 5.

I Never Promised You A Hose Harden (Eric H.), Friday, 9 November 2018 16:59 (one year ago) link

that seems like a bizarre reading of this show (and that sequence in particular as well) to me but whatever

Οὖτις, Friday, 9 November 2018 18:18 (one year ago) link

You only get so much mileage/goodwill on the premise of "these are the worst people in the world!" in my book.

I Never Promised You A Hose Harden (Eric H.), Friday, 9 November 2018 18:35 (one year ago) link

there have always been some strangely touching musical moments in the show, even if they're often undercut with jokes (unlike this one). I thought the dance scene was moving and i'm glad they played it straight.

vulture had a great article about the preparation that went into that scene and Rob McElhenney's absurd commitment to his work: https://www.vulture.com/2018/11/its-always-sunny-mac-dance-season-13-finale.html

fred-a van vleet (voodoo chili), Friday, 9 November 2018 18:50 (one year ago) link

I guess I wasn't impressed with the dance sequence since I generally find modern dance totally ridiculous/boring but yknow ymmv

Οὖτις, Friday, 9 November 2018 18:50 (one year ago) link

Sincerity is totally your thing tho.

I Never Promised You A Hose Harden (Eric H.), Friday, 9 November 2018 18:51 (one year ago) link

haha um

Οὖτις, Friday, 9 November 2018 18:56 (one year ago) link

The #metoo and prius episode the following week were awesome. I generally enjoyed the whole season even if it wasn’t laughs all the time.

Just finished the clip show (loved). Hated the metoo and home alone episodes.

Yerac, Tuesday, 13 November 2018 01:52 (one year ago) link

Mac no longer having tattoos has been distracting.

Yerac, Tuesday, 13 November 2018 01:52 (one year ago) link

favs this season were metoo and escape room I think

k3vin k., Tuesday, 13 November 2018 01:55 (one year ago) link

mac, dee and dennis are looking too healthy and rich. Only Charlie and Frank are keeping the dirtbag vibe going.

Yerac, Tuesday, 13 November 2018 02:01 (one year ago) link

the minds behind the Frinkiac really need to tackle this show

one month passes...

I finally watched the latest season. I fucking died at Charlie eating Chinese food with a chopstick in each hand

Pierrot with a thousand farces (wins), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 22:10 (ten months ago) link

the latest was a bad season with a single, truly canonic episode as a finale
ROI definitely getting dicey tho

:(

skipped it this go round. maybe for the best.

constitutional crises they fly at u face (will), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 23:17 (ten months ago) link

I laughed about as much as I did the previous couple of seasons (probably more than the last one)

Pierrot with a thousand farces (wins), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 23:21 (ten months ago) link

I like that they’re out of the holding pattern of eternal post-David Seinfeld they seemed to be getting into, where it’s literally all callbacks

Pierrot with a thousand farces (wins), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 23:23 (ten months ago) link

Except the Wade Boggs airplane episode redux.

love craptually (Eric H.), Wednesday, 9 January 2019 00:02 (ten months ago) link

and that one episode where they throw a lampshade on all the callbacks

bros before HOOS (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 9 January 2019 05:43 (ten months ago) link

you know seasons 2-8 are great, 9 still has some great stuff but after that it's kind of shitty-

oh fuck why does this sound familiar

blood, loud screaming and nudity (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 10 January 2019 07:51 (ten months ago) link

boggs, escape room, metoo, and dance sequence all good. pretty ropey season overall

three months pass...

because of "The Gang Gets Trapped" I constantly refer to the burger place up the street from us as "the hamburger store"

neither is it really good

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 3 November 2019 20:06 (one month ago) link

Didnt even know it was out :(

Οὖτις, Monday, 4 November 2019 01:32 (one month ago) link

The Waiter would now be in the list of side characters poll if done again.

'The Gang Chokes' and 'Dee Day' where both pretty good and tie back well into previous episodes if you are a fan.

earlnash, Monday, 4 November 2019 02:24 (one month ago) link

noir episode was incredible

"brown lightning"

Οὖτις, Thursday, 7 November 2019 19:41 (four weeks ago) link

The texting ep was pretty good.

Pauline Male (Eric H.), Thursday, 7 November 2019 19:47 (four weeks ago) link

noir episode was incredible

^^^^

k3vin k., Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:20 (two weeks ago) link

loved how every line dee delivered was completely off, until her very last line of the episode, which was the best-delivered noir line of the whole thing
