Pop-Pop: The Final Solution
The description on IMDB says, “Charlie finds out that he was adopted and meets his biological father, who is dating the waitress.”
The Season 8 premiere of Sunny opens with the Reynolds twins having to decide whether or not to euthanize Pop-Pop, their ex-Nazi grandfather who is currently in a coma and on life support. While Dennis and Dee wrestle with the decision whether or not to pull the plug, Frank, Mac, and Charlie attempt to locate Pop-Pop’s Nazi treasure. In the end, Pop-Pop was removed from life support but he lived to goose-step another day.
If you were hoping to catch a glimpse of the rotund goodness that is Mac’s belly, demurely peeking out from beneath a food-stained t-shirt, then I have some bad news for you: Mac isn’t fat anymore. The now svelte and clean-shaven Mac was donning a special pair of sunglasses to perfect his ocular pat-down skills, due to his “unfortunate weight loss [putting the bar] in extreme risk”.
The episode would not have been complete without the Reynolds’ oven-warming home movies featuring Dennis and Dee, engulfed in a sea of adorable Aryan children, Nazi-saluting in unison at a White Pride summer camp.
Guest stars included Sunny writer, David Hornsby, as Rickety Cricket and Tom Bower (The Laramie Project) reprising his role as Pop-Pop.
As usual, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia did not disappoint. I laughed, I cringed, I seriously considered whether or not my grandfather might have been a Nazi.
