When Dee points to a location on the globe, the North and South American continents are clearly on the opposite side of where she landed, yet Philadelphia is chosen. See more »

Yeah because I was making Cupid's arrow, dude.
Why does it have a big vein running through it?
Because that's the streak as it flies through the air.

Sunny is back, and (not surprisingly) just as good as before
There's a curse I've noticed throughout television that I like to call "The Curse of 7", which basically means that a good TV show can only last 7 seasons before it starts to dip in quality. From the early days of television (Twilight Zone, I Love Lucy) to modern classics (Breaking Bad, Arrested Development), it seems like all great shows stop before reaching their 8th season. And many shows that were once great seemed to turn bad towards it's 7th season (The Simpsons, The Office). However, some shows have broken this curse, and one of those is It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the story of 5 narcissistic, deranged, and possibly mentally insane "friends" who run Paddy's Pub, probably the worst bar in Philadelphia.
If you've seen basically any other episode of Sunny, then you probably get the gist of this episode: "The Gang" creates a scheme to get money which creates awkward social experiences, arguing, insanity, beer, and call backs to older episodes. Original? No. Hilarious? Of course!
The only real con I can find within the episode (as previously stated) is that it doesn't try anything new, which is understandable. Shows usually want to play it safe when it comes to premiere episodes. Doing what you know best usually creates a good final product. But this isn't a good final product: it's a fantastic final product.
The episode contains great acting, amazing writing, hilarious call backs, original situations (even in after over 100 episodes), and some pretty damn good and out-of-nowhere twists. I won't spoil them for you, because you just have to experience them. You'll also learn why the episode has "Electric Boogaloo" tagged at the end of it. As expected, it's hilarious.
It's Always Sunny recently won a People's Choice Award for best Cable TV Comedy (one of the few good choices the awards show made), and there's a reason for that, because Sunny is one of the funniest shows on TV.If you haven't seen Chardee Macdennis 2: Electric Boogaloo yet, I highly recommend you do. If you don't, that's probably alright because you've almost definitely already seen these plot points mentioned. And if there's one thing this episode proves, it's that It's Always Sunny hasn't lost it's stride, even after 11 years.
