Trivia

Dennis' remark, "We don't give a shit about your dream," is a direct call back to the first episode of the first season, "The Gang Gets Racist," in which Dennis stops Dee from telling him her dream by interrupting, "I hate listening to people's dreams. It's like flipping through a stack of photographs. If I'm not in any of them and nobody's having sex, I just... don't care." See more »

End of its always sunny?
10 January 2017 | by (ireland) – See all my reviews

I've been a fan of its always sunny from the beginning and i cannot believe how this first episode has gone.

Maybe its the the fact that the show is gaining a lot of popularity but this episode was absolutely awful.

It was nowhere near the high standards that it once held in comedy from the previous series and i have no idea why the episode was set in a fantasy land.

It was a major disappointment and i hope it was a once off.

The show is based on a dark sense of humour and always has been. I believe that all lives matter but the fact that they made an episode covering this theme seems as if they are just jumping on the band wagon and hoping for the best.
