The second act of the episode features a sequence 10 minutes and 13 seconds in length composed of nine shots carefully stitched together to look like one continuous take. The longest take, from Charlie closing the front door begin the health inspector through to bringing her into the basement, is nearly six minutes long. See more »
When Charlie first walks into the bar, Dennis is painting the third line of the sign. As the camera shifts frame from Charlie, to Dennis, to Charlie, then back again, fewer words on the sign are shown. See more »
A masterpiece among some of the other masterpieces!
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...
