So guys, I just got into this show, and I did a cafe society search here to see if there were any threads, and I only came up with one talking about the new season, so I figure that we need a thread here to collect all of the “Sunny” fans to see if we have enough people to talk about it regularly!
At any rate, I reaaaaaaly am liking this show. It’s not good in the way Arrested Development was. Arrested Development simply had so many more layers. Maybe Sunny can get that good over time (There will be many more seasons).
So here are some highlights of the show for me:
This guy is nothing but non-stop comedy. He’s obviously the loser of the group, but the beauty is that they don’t treat him particularly more mean-spirited than they do anyone else. What I’d love to know is how the hell he ever got enough money to open a bar with these guys.
Secondly, his apartment is the best. What’s even more hilarious is how he’s always wearing long johns in his apartment. Apparenty, a friend told me that he now wears the same thing in his place in every episode. Another thing I love about the show is how so many scenes are set in his place! Frank lives there too now, so that’s pretty awesome.
Thirdly, his acting in the last episode (gas crisis) was amazing. Watching him explain how he’d “count” the gas is the funniest shit i’ve seen. His dressing up as a Texan is great too.
And let’s not forget Danny Devito! I guess I always thought he was kinda funny, but I think this role is going to be memorable for him. I am particularly thinking of how he’s been able to deliver some of the best lines of the show. My favorite was in response to the idea of his daughter taking boxercise classes “What the hell kinda queer shit is that?!” It’s so dismissive and wrong! I love it! His behavior in the fancy restaurant where they confront him about not being his dad is priceless. The way he says “whore” is hilarious. I don’t know if it’s intentional or simply his accent but it tends to come out as “whooer” which really cracks me up.
Then you’ve got Dennis which is a pretty funny character too. I think his best episode was the one where they all went to prom.
A lot of people didn’t like the Manhunter episode. I can understand that but there were some highlights
“They. Drew. First. Bloooooood!”
talking about not wanting to eat a black guy
“Is it racist if we don’t want to eat a black guy?”
“Well shit Charlie! It is now!”
Anyway, there are simply too many to name here really. Every episode has been very solid in my opinion. I’ve been very impressed. Anyone got any favorite moments they want to share? I’d love to hear some. I’ve yet to watch all of the third season, but I don’t care about spoilers.
