Another episode back on par
11 August 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

After a string of disappointing episodes they really picked up in time for the season finale (which is next week). In "Charlie Goes America All Over Everybody's Ass," Dennis begins smoking in the bar, which upsets Charlie and Dee, who both think smoking should be illegal. As Charlie and Dee start campaigning to be pro-American and anti-smoking, Mac, Dennis and Frank decide to take advantage of the New Orleans disaster by opening a "New Orleans bar" - where anything goes and there are no restrictions on freedom.

But soon, as they realize, absolute freedom has a price when people begin going wild and Frank's Vietnam buddies start playing Russian roulette in the basement.

This is one of the better episodes. It's a satirical statement on blind American patriotism, but it also realizes that freedom can never be completely "free" or people will take advantage of it.

As a political comment it's surprisingly effective - if not as subtle as other episodes - and the jokes are very funny. Charlie running out into the street yelling "Attaca!" is going to go down as one of the season highlights.

I can't wait for the finale next week.
