Some self-inflicted chaos unfolds in Wrexham thanks to co-chairmen Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, much to the frustration of Executive Director Humphrey Ker.

This was one of the funniest episodes, and I love Humphrey Ker. Poor Shaun's wife. Great work by the Shaun re-enactor!

It almost seems like a bad comic pitch if it weren't real: take an Always Sunny comic sensibility and watch how it clashes with the deep and abiding British passion for forms, regulations, and procedure.

I know he’s a controversial figure to footie fans in the UK, but I enjoyed the focus on Shaun trying to cope with Rob’s shenanigans (and by extension Humphrey’s discomfort). The Shaun stand-in was hilarious.

I also enjoy that the show doesn’t shrink from giving us a picture of them being annoying from time to time and the inherent culture clash. Stars—they really aren’t just like us.

I love the setup for this one.

Memorial urinal! With a plaque! With his face! Followed by a big ol' surprisingly cheap blimp!

"I am referring all questions to Rob."

"It's kinda fun to listen to a game on the radio, like it's 1947 or something... I missed the one goal because I was in the bathroom."

"So far Shaun's been gone for two days and there's already been a healthy dose of lies and subterfuge."

"I have not really been killing it in my time as the Hand."

Rob's the king and Ryan's the queen? Honestly, woulda figured it'd be the other way around.
