Trivia

Much of this episode was edited to look like one long, continuous shot, seemingly as a nod to the critically acclaimed film Birdman, with similar music from the film playing in the episode. However, this episode was shot before Birdman came out and the music was added in later. See more »

Goofs

As Charlie takes the truck driver to the 'patio' they pass a green topped stool with silver duct tape on it; when Charlie returns, incidentally slamming the same stool down, the tape is missing. See more »

A masterpiece among some of the other masterpieces!
15 February 2017 | by brooksrob1See all my reviews

After watching this episode "Charlie Work" for the second time; I remembered how good it was...After seeing so few reviews I felt more are needed.

This is Charlie at his most brilliant...It's a twist on early sitcoms, done the Philly way...This is no Lucile Ball stuffing candy in her mouth...This is so many brilliant contrivances and slight of hand tricks, but not skillfully done, More like a Mr. Magoo getting lucky...

The gang, as usual, makes a difficult task 10X's more difficult with their usual antics...Frank is hilarious! His outfits are awesome...

But Charlie steals the show...Probably his best episode and that's saying something considering his body of work...Way better than the Day Man Cometh, IMHO...
