Allison Munn was kind enough to sit with us and reflect on her experience shooting tonight’s episode, “The Gang Misses the Boat.” A show like Sunny doesn’t always have a chance to feature sweet, normal folks like Allison. And boy is she normal. I mean, I’m no therapist but I’d say she’s totally got her shit together. Absolutely nothing strange about this lady whatsoever.
I have no idea who this man is or what he’s doing on our official Behind the Scenes channel (click here to subscribe) but I guess the higher-ups approved it. Chalk it up to “right place, right time” for this nobody waiter, as he was able to snag an entire interview here:
Let’s hope this lucky bastard doesn’t let the sudden fame get to his head, or else he’s going to have a tough time remembering that lunch order I left on his voicemail twenty minutes ago.
What happens when the Gang misses the boat? Is it a literal boat, or one of those figurative boats representing what 10 seasons of late night basic cable comedy does to your mind and soul? Well listen, it’s not this blog’s purpose to answer such ludicrous questions.
Though it is entirely possible that at 10pm tonight you will be subject to a thorough examination of the decade-long bond between friends, who for the first time are realizing just how many barnacles have accumulated on the hull of their relationship. See that was a figurative boat. That said, it’s way more likely you’re gonna see Frank dressed up as a jungle cat. Heyooo, full steam ahead!
If you’ve been watching Sunny at all, you’re probably aware of the term “Charlie Work” — but have you actually seen Charlie Work? Well the answer is no, obviously, because tonight is the first time we get a full, uncut view into the Work of Charlie.
Paddy’s is due for its annual health inspection, and it’s up to Charlie to make sure the bar maintains its perfect rating. Will the rest of the gang ruin it all with their side-grifting? That’s where I’m going to leave it. Anything else would be a spoiler and I’m not The Walking Dead’s Facebook so I can’t pull that kind of stuff.
Instead, please enjoy this lovely interview with Jennifer Elise Cox, who you’ll likely recognize as “Gecko Tattoo Girl” from our season ten premiere. She was also in a show that rhymed with “Lady Lunch” but I already blew the budget of this blog post buying the rights to mention Walking Dead’s Facebook. Worth it!
Get yourselves ready for brand new Sunny tonight at 10, only on FXX.
We usually don’t see a lot of luck with these Twitter question videos. It seems something always gets in the way of providing real answers to the fans. Hopefully this time around it’ll be smooth sailing as Rob takes a break from his quantum physics essay concerning fourth dimensional time enhancement to do some standard, no frills, Q&A.
Well there you go. Sorry if we didn’t get to all of your questions, though just to quickly answer most of them right now: “No, The Waitress’ name is not Nikki Potnick” and “No, Pepe Silvia is not supposed to stand for Pennsylvania.” So if either of those answers pertain to your question, just go back and re-read it in your favorite cast member’s voice!
One of the perks of working behind the scenes on a show like Sunny is you get to visit a lot of unique locations. Of course we have all of our standing sets such as Paddy’s, Guigino’s, and other staples that get used over and over. But our crew relishes the opportunity to set up shop in a completely new environment. Take, for example, the dirty abandoned asylum in tonight’s episode, where we caught up with Kaitlin to have her explain just what it means when the Sunny crew goes out on location:
Holy shit, what did they do to Cricket’s face? There’s a certain point where it’s just going to be easier to render that guy in CG. The preview only provides a brief glimpse of the horror show that Cricket has become, so you’ll have to wait until 10pm to see the full thing.
Speaking of faces, tonight’s episode finally gives a face to the name we last heard way back in “The High School Reunion.” Dominic Burgess guest-stars as the Gang’s long lost friend, Psycho Pete. Will we see the Freight Train back up and running at full steam tonight? Only one way to find out: get good and unzipped for new It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia at 10pm, only on FXX.
Also stay tuned after Sunny for “Man Seeking Woman”, FXX’s new comedy starring Jay Baruchel. So far it’s getting someawesomepress. So if you start watching it now you can rub it in your friends’ faces when they say “yo have you heard of thi--” “YES, DARRYL, I HAVE HEARD OF IT!”
While wrapping up shooting “The Gang Beats Boggs,” the guys took a moment to reflect on the titular man behind the legend: Wade Boggs. It was surprising to see that though his wikipedia page is filled with details of his illustrious baseball career, there seems to be no mention at all of what could possibly his most daring feat: drinking 57 beers on a cross-country flight.
Check the video below for Rob, Charlie and Glenn pondering on Boggs’ immortal liver, plus a special message to anyone who thinks they can beat Boggs in real life:
When Mary Elizabeth Ellis was on set for last week’s episode, we had no idea she was going to drop this bomb on us. You’d be surprised at the amount of effort that goes into protecting this show’s secrets. Like for instance if I leaked that the Frank you see on Sunny is not Danny DeVito, but a realistic android purchased with dick towel money, I’d probably be stripped of my job and taken out.
