Change of pace with fantastic results
8 November 2018 | by lucanoonanSee all my reviews

A lot of the negative reviews of this episode, and of this season in general, have been very transparent. They seem to think that sunny is ~getting political all of a sudden~ as if it hasn't been being political since the very first episode. They also don't seem to realize that they are the type of people the show has been mocking the entire time. It's sad, really. But even though getting political is nothing new for Sunny, the general tone and seriousness of this episode is definitely new. And boy does it pay off.You can clearly see all of the 7 months of hard work Rob put into that dance, and how important he views Mac's coming out arc. He doesn't take LGBT fans for granted, he takes them very seriously and has taken it upon himself to deliver possibly the best episode of television ever made about the topic. Not only is the dance scene beautiful, cinematic, and emotional, but the rest of the episode is too. Rob's acting is perfect at conveying the complexities of Mac's struggle, there are perfect callbacks to other episodes that have narrative payoff, and despite how seriously the subject is treated, there were still jokes that made me laugh out loud! A complaint I do understand is that the gang aren't in the episode enough, but to me that does not make it a worse episode, it just makes it different, and I feel like this episode was about MAC and having the rest of the gang in it much more, especially Dennis what with Mac's complex feelings for him, wouldn't have worked. This truly was a love letter from Rob to the LGBT community, and it was so poignant. I hope that this finally gets Sunny more Emmy nods, or overall more recognition, but even if it doesn't, and even if there are people who don't "get" the episode (which is...very ironic considering Frank's behaviour in the episode), RCG knew this would be the case, and they did it anyway, because it's what they believe in.
