Best episode of Seasons 1 & 2 - thanks to Charlie
18 January 2007 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

This episode beats "The Gang Exploits a Miracle" (by my ranking, #3) and "The Gang Runs for Office" (ranking #2). It is by far the funniest episode of both seasons. This episode is completely Charlie's (referring to his writing credit).

Only Charlie Day could come up with an episode as well thought out as this one:

1. All the characters retained their vain, conceited personalities. (A very important factor.)

2. All the characters stuck to their goals.

3. Each one had a subplot that contributed to the main plot (the subplots did not go off at a tangent).

4. The finale was executed perfectly (in its chaotic, crazy way).

5. The most important thing: it still had offensive parts! (That's the best part of "It's Always Sunny…" – each episode has at least one controversial topic to offend someone)

Three cheers for Charlie!
