So, if you’re on season 12 we can skip immediate from ‘what is this’ to ‘is there any way that this show is still vital after all this time’.
Me, I’ve been waiting for this show to fall on its face for about 5 seasons and I have yet to be really disappointed, except by an episode here or there.
Two episodes in, season 12 is rock solid. The fact that episode 1 a) happened, b) was any good, and c) didn’t result in the show getting pulled off the air is a minor miracle. The gang *turns black* — is there a more (foolishly, pointlessly, self-destructively) ambitious thing to try to pull off in 22 minutes of an FX comedy? And the waterslide show, it was like, ‘hey, let’s spend 2 minutes worrying everyone that we’re doing a corny waterpark episode that looks like a regular show and then end with AIDS BLOOD.’
You know what you’re getting here, and it’s just amazing that there’s any of it left. This is the best television sitcom of all-time.
