Trailer looks like a typical Sunny Trailer. Concepts and plots for the Season seem funny and outside of the Noir episode not all high concept and back to basics. Where they just take these five assholes stick them somewhere and let them bicker for an entire episode. No other projects are in the way and all five actors were available for the entire time with Howerton even directing two of the episodes. This could possibly be the best season in years, but we'll see how the episodes end up.

I thought last night's episode was pretty great. Any episode where the five of them are stuck in a room with a bewildered stranger is hilarious and all five characters were pretty hilarious. The woman playing the Focus Group Moderator was absolutely hilarious and her "FUCK, MAN.....WHAT?" after Charlie's stupidity was the biggest laugh of the episode. I also loved the collective outrage of the dong not being shown and Frank's line about raw dawg loads caught me off guard. Dee was pretty damn funny the entire episode with her rant about why she hates strong female characters and then talking about what it would be like if she had a dick making me laugh hard.

Dolph was definitely underused and I wish he actually interacted with the cast, but the episode was more about the Gang anyway. Next week is Dee Day and the preview looks hilarious.

great episode and I loved Dees spiel about women. Franks whole thing about community and the way it excited the Moderator only for it to be about jerking off in porn theaters was fantastic.

I wasn't that into the first episode of the season although the frank/charlie parts were good enough. The Mac/Dennis stuff was really predictable and a bit tired. The "twist" was something you saw coming from a mile away and while that can be good it felt lazy.

First two episodes were amazing. The ski episode had it's laughs mostly due to Charlie not getting it. I guess I haven't seen enough 80s ski movies to fully appreciate the gag. I got the gag because South Park already did it, but I enjoyed the Sunny take on it.

I thought Dee Day was a great episode. Even though Dee wasn't in it as much as I was expecting the episode was still absolutely hilarious and I loved the twist ending with her actually correctly concocting the scheme and then giving the guys a second Dee Day after setting the clock early. I love that they've been setting Dee up as the most vindictive and smartest of the gang in recent seasons. This is the only show that can get away with brown/ yellow face since the ignorance and terribleness of the characters is the joke. Frank in the Martina Martinez outfit had me dying as did Dennis without makeup trying to flirt with the congresswoman. I will say that Mac is just not a funny character anymore and all the jokes this season with him being needy and clingy with Dennis have been huge clunkers. I miss when the character thought he was bad ass and was obsessed with karate.

great episode. I agree that Mac doesn't work well anymore.

I'm beating a dead horse, but holy shit Mac is just an obnoxious character this season. He never was my favorite, but he had some funny quirks like the karate and thinking he was a badass. They haven't done that in years and now his only character trait is that he's in love with Dennis. They are definitely making his neediness to Dennis a plot point of the season, but it is absolutely unfunny and hurting the episodes. I was hoping that with Rob getting a shitty looking sitcom on Apple TV that he'd put himself in the background more this season, but he's getting more screen time than the rest of the cast.

The Gang Chokes was a really funny episode besides that. I loved the Dee thrillseeker storyline. Her giddiness at wanting someone to drink the poison was absolutely hilarious and I think Dee's replaced Dennis as my favorite character. I love that they are running with her being possibly more evil than Dennis and god dammit Rob get your wife some more funny plots like this on the regular. Dennis was also great in this one. I love Glenn Howerton as a straight man to the ridiculous antics more than when he's being an evil mastermind. His bewildered reactions to "What are you like 40?" were hilarious. If you tune out Mac, this is on pace to be the best season since 9 or 10.

Mac has been the worst of the gang since season one.

Two episodes back right now. No urgency to catch right up.

this is the best season in several years. Mac is noticeably the least interesting of the characters but unlike other seasons none of the others are really misfiring.

Season is just continuing to role on with another damn good episode. Same problem as usual with Mac being annoyingly one note and needy, but once again the other four were funny enough not to let it ruin the episode. Loved Frank with the gorilla, Dee's terrible comedic texting timing, Dee's trauma with the goats, Charlie peeing on Mac, and then the five of them meeting back up in the Meerkats pods with the Lion King music playing and then Dee finally zinging Mac.

The film noir episode seems to be the best reviewed and received episode this season, but I didn't like it. It felt more like a Community genre homage episode then Sunny and it was written by one of the main writers of Community in Megan Ganz so not a surprise. You could've done the same script pretty much with Jeff Winger as Charlie, Pierce as Frank, Troy/Abed as Mac/Dennis, Britta as Dee, Annie as The Waitress, Chang as the one thug guy, and The Dean as Cricket. The actual Noir aspect was really well done, well directed and thought out and all, but I only laughed when Dee was breaking character and Charlie eating the poison pie. The episode didn't have the group dynamics and comedy I want.

Global Warming episode had one amazing plot and one awful plot. Dee/Charlie plot was the highlight of the season and I missed their chemistry. Dee was hilarious and Kaitlin Olson might be the best pure comedic actor on the show. Her instagram stories where she was trying to be fake happy while raging on Charlie had me dying as did her final story. Charlie is great here too and I loved his nod to the other guy wearing the pizza box hat on the bus. Olson sells his stupidity and aloofness so well. The Mac/Dennis plot stunk and felt like it was included to show off how the actors are in good to great shape for 42/43. Religious Mac was as unfunny and had as many clunky lines as needy Mac. The Dee/Charlie plot was so fantastic that it's still a good episode.

The jumper episode last week was terrific. The best episodes anymore are when they aren't trying to be smart or experimental and just have the characters interact in a confined area.

Double episode finale was a great cap to the best season in years.

Haircut episode was just classic Sunny through and through. Hilarious moments from everyone and all the metaphors for abortion, while not subtle, still made for a great satire. The Laser Tag episode was one of their meta and experimental episodes, but I actually really liked it. Unlike some of these episodes it was actually really funny. All the allusions to Waiting For Godot and to the show itself really worked for me. Loved Dennis' final speech about everyone moving on and doing their own thing and then the fakeout with them returning and blasting Big Mo.

Rob McCelhenney was hinting on twitter last night that they have a deal already made for more seasons and implied that they will start doing more than ten episodes. After this season, I want more. This show managing to still be this good in its 14th season is crazy. The characters not progressing much leads to there still being potential for good story lines and maybe a tiny bit of development. There's still a lot of juice left in this show after it felt stale the last 3 or so seasons.

fantastic season and loved the last two episodes.
