Did You Know?


In the scene where Sweet Dee performs at a stand up club for the second time, there are some connections to the television show Breaking Bad. In the scene Sweet Dee opens for a comedian named "Landslide," played by the actor Lavell Crawford. Crawford also plays Saul Goodman's security guard Huell Babineaux in Breaking Bad. In the same scene, Sweet Dee's brother Dennis brings a man he wants to set her up with, a man named Walt. The lead character in Breaking Bad is Walter White or often "Walt" for short. The man, Walt, also bares a striking resemblance to Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. See more »

On a Sunny Scale I've got to give this a full 10
14 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

At the start of episode Dee is drunk, eating, smoking, messy hair, no makeup, not bathing and basically near suicide. The gang says, 'Dee, you know what you look like' Dee drunkingly replies, 'I KNOW, A BIRD, I GET IT, I LOOK LIKE A BIRD!! What's hilarious (and what I love about 'It's Always Sunny')the Gang is completely oblivious to as why Dee is near suicide from lack of esteem? The Gang IS the cause of Dee's Pain! The gang has never once even treated her like a human or given her an iota of respect! The Best part of this episode is Kaitlin Olson's 'Dee Reynolds' performance whether she's doing stand-up jokes drunk on stage or all of the crazy sound effects she's making. Why hasn't she or this show Won an Emmy by now?? Why is it always low-brow humourless (imho) shows like 'Raymond' that wins? Anyway, Kaitlin (as Dee) in this show is excellent and shows all of her acting chops. The turnaround and Ending is hilarious, unexpected and just horrible!! I loved it! On a side note, Kaitlin Olson is very trim, nice figure, but slightly 'lanky'. I bet in real life when she was a teen in school everyone called her 'A Bird' out of cruelty. Boy, is she a Swan Now!! Mac is indeed a lucky Man! Charlie's real life wife 'The Waitress' ain't too bad either! It amazes me that 4 actors in a show that hate each other are married with children off-set. Might be therapeutic of some sorts?
