The One That Started It All
13 August 2017 | by Samuel-ShovelSee all my reviews

I remember the first time watching this show I was immediately drawn in by this pilot. I was laughing hysterically from the get go. The cold open, the choice of title, the jokes, everything just clicked to me and it's been my favorite comedy ever since then.

In this episode, the gang accidentally becomes a gay bar and Charlie tries to convince the waitress he's not racist. As usual, misadventures ensue. One of the more solid episodes of Season 1, this pilot captures the tone and atmosphere of IASIP perfectly.
