Lon - Where are you at with Sunny? Last I knew you were undecided on if you thought it was funny...but you hadn't watched many episodes yet (if I remember right).
I was put-off for the longest while because it felt like the show was nothing more than a bunch of narcissistic sociopaths shouting at each other for half an hour at a time -- but then I caught on to the joke. It's SUPPOSED to be about a bunch of narcissistic sociopaths shouting at each other in a concerted effort to satirize the traditional sitcom formula. There's never a happy ending, the gang never comes together for a unified understanding, and it's all played ironically against traditionally happy "Leave it to Beaver"-style music. Even Rob McElhenney got fat in an effort to go against the grain of sitcom stars becoming better looking (thanks to increased paydays and all the benefits money brings with it) as their shows become successful.
I even have a favorite character (Dennis, because he's so damned narcissistic, though Charlie's a close second), a number of favorite episodes and have even amassed a great deal of Sunny trivia. To wit, some of my favorite episodes are:
Chardee MacDennis - the Game of Games (Dennis cracks me up start to finish in this one -- check out his face when they're screaming during warm-up for the game )
Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life (more because of Charlie in this episode, though; Charlie gagging while doing a stand-up bit makes me bust out laughing every time)
Frank's Pretty Woman (y'know the woman who playd Roxy also played Josie on Beekman's World? Like I said -- trivai!)
And there are several others. Anyway, yeah. I was slow to catch on, but now that I have, I'm a fan.
