What Would the Gang do?
6 June 2020 | by injury-65447See all my reviews

What a great follow up episode. This show is top quality. It's genius level comedy really.

Reinforces how despicable and absolutely lacking in principles the guys are.

The kid who plays Charlie's supposed son is extremely obnoxious and annoying but I guess that's the whole point of his character. Hard to watch though.

It's a very shouty episode with the protests and the unruly kid. Felt like People were constantly screaming.

I love the final scene where the kid's real father does a callback to the Why Why Why routine from earlier in the episode.

Establishes that the show will not shy away from controversial topics to get laughs.
