    I saw taht, but my question was really, is he actually that fat or is that a fat suit? it looks real as shit. i mean if he did pork up i get it. I did see where he thought he was putting on bulk for his 'avatar' guy lol. but it looks so damned real.. that's what I should be asking

    while I'm on the subject (hint, i'd never seen this show until a month ago so i started watching from the beginning).

    Do i understand it right that mac on the show is the creator and EP of the series?

    It's real. It's easy to get fat.

    If you want to see something impressive watch The Machinist and Batman Begins back to back.

    I thought it looked real. but holy shit he porked up big time.

    I kept thinking he was my favorite, then charlie was, then sweet dee, then frank, fuck it i think I like them all equally and that's strange.

    I love this show so much, like I said in my other comment (profile comment) my sister used to love this show and I scoffed at it until a month ago. Now I'm loving it and she's worm food so i can't even say I'm sorry

    it's honestly as close as possible to saying the kinds of things my real friends would say when i was that age. so un-pc it's refreshing

    and truly I couldn't stand danny devito until i saw this character

    i saw some clips of that, that dude became fucking gross for that role in the machinist. THAT was impressive

    Damn, check it out. Do you not like the actors in it or something, or is it just a chance thing?

    You'd enjoy it, based on how much I assume you love giant Native American men throwing water fountains.

    It's also a great movie.

    Devito was great in Twins, Throw Mama from the Train, Romancing the Stone, War of the Roses, Matilda, Hoffa... Pretty much everything.

    But he is certainly fantastic as Frank. I hope there's more Frank and Pondy episodes next season.

    mac getting fat spoiler (open)
    the initial joke was Rob (Mac) wanted all of them to get fat and have danny devito get really skinny for that season. no one else wanted to do it, so Mac got fat on his own. they have an episode where Mac talks to a priest about why he got fat, in the context of their world. but the genesis was Robs idea of all of them being fat

    The characters that play Mac, Dennis and Charlie are all the creators and executive producers of the show. They also write it.

    Mac created the show and shot an original pilot for cheap. Howerton then convinced him to retool the show and Charlie started writing with them. When it went to series, they all became EPs. There have been a lot of writers on the show. David Hornsby, who plays Cricket, is one of the regulars. The guys from Game of Thrones wrote "Flowers for Charlie." Fred Savage directed a lot of episodes.

    Here's a clip from the original pilot.

    I thought I read/heard Mac purposely got fat for that season. He since lost the weight, hasn't he?
