Last Season sucked... This season starts off like ....
8 January 2017 | by namikazedanteSee all my reviews

I don't know what to say more than that the gang is finally back !

Last season yeah it sucked real hard. With maybe one or two good episodes. But oh boy ! The first episode of this season just caught me off guard.

I mean just read what the episode is about and you will just think to yourself ''This is what Sunny is all about and I like it''.

I am like all others who hate this crap all TV shows has started to do. The singing thing. Which is so lame and always are lame. But when the gang did it. It was actually fun and done in a really good way. I loved it. And there were many laughs and very good jokes throughout the episode. I was even surprised in a funny way how it all ended too.

This was a good start !
