I didn't start a thread for the season premier because I was disappointed in it. But episode #2 here in season five had me laughing out loud from beginning to end.
To summarize, the gang feels that a trip to the Grand Canyon is long overdue, so off they go and hilarity ensues. It took me nearly half the episode to realize that they were never going to actually leave the city at any point.
Top notch from Mac's bullseye on the cyclist to Charlie's lack of peaches in his diet to Dee's pee jar. Luckily Dee's new car came with a hitch!
I dunno--I thought Frank Shockmastering his way into the pool last week was pretty damn funny.
I found the explanation of and total failure of Mac's "ocular pat-down," Charlie's lack of experience with fruit, and Sweet Dee's drunken, creepy, rendition of "Runaway Train" were the highlights for me this week.
I missed this show.

We really liked it. Fred Savage is pretty great in his role. It's a shame he's been off TV for so long. (Yeah, I know he's been directing, but he's so enjoyable as a comedic actor). Episode two was pretty good too.
