Strong satirical bite, but the formula is starting to get a bit repetitive
29 July 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This season of "Sunny" was off to a great start with "The Gang Gets Handicapped" and "The Gang Goes Jihad," but the last two or three episodes haven't really been up to par in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, they're still very funny and irreverent, but it seems like the show is starting to follow a standard formula: they take some kind of social element (gun control, abortion, drugs, welfare, religion, cancer, the handicapped, etc.) and lampoon it.

In this episode Mac (Rob McElhenney) finds a water stain in the back of the gang's pub and Frank (Danny DeVito) decides to exploit it for money because it looks a bit like the Virgin Mary. Mac is reluctant to do so because he fears it will send him to hell, but Charlie (Charlie Day) assures him that he's already going to hell.

The money begins coming in but not very much, so Frank decides that they need to find a Catholic priest to give the water stain his blessing in order to attract more attention. Dee (Kaitlin Olsen) has an old friend who is a priest and decides to try to coerce him into a romance in order to take advantage of him - however, because he is a priest, he is unable to give in to his feelings for her, which results in one of the cruelest endings I've ever seen on any television show.

I still love "Sunny" but I found this episode to be one of the weaker ones.
