A masterpiece among some of the other masterpieces!
15 February 2017 | by brooksrob1See all my reviews

After watching this episode "Charlie Work" for the second time; I remembered how good it was...After seeing so few reviews I felt more are needed.

This is Charlie at his most brilliant...It's a twist on early sitcoms, done the Philly way...This is no Lucile Ball stuffing candy in her mouth...This is so many brilliant contrivances and slight of hand tricks, but not skillfully done, More like a Mr. Magoo getting lucky...

The gang, as usual, makes a difficult task 10X's more difficult with their usual antics...Frank is hilarious! His outfits are awesome...

But Charlie steals the show...Probably his best episode and that's saying something considering his body of work...Way better than the Day Man Cometh, IMHO...
