It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

FX sitcom about schlubs in Philly that own / run a bar. Hilarious hijinks ensue re: picking up girls at abortion rallies, rigging pee-wee basketball games, turning a comptroller race into a corruption-ridden slapfight, and fathering babies w/ the girl from the Blair Witch Project. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, A++++++++

I only saw the ones where they entered the guy into a streetfighting contest and where they served liquor to high school students. Really good stuff indeed.

ilx sometime-poster lemin turned me onto this show, and i think it's great, even if casting danny devito was a bit of a mis-step on the producers' part. the abortion rally pick-up episode and the one where charlie gets "cancer" = GOLDEN

This show is great, although the first season was better. The second has been a little too wacky in its plotting - a little too "Seinfeld."

its def. Seinfeld/Curb Your Enthusiasm-style "mean people" humor - only with young hipsters instead of old, rich, middle-class Jews!

Its mildly entertaining but it always feels really forced to me. the characters are all just virtually interchangeable assholes, none of them have any identity (I chalk this up to poor writing)

I had no idea this was the 2nd season!

Yeah, they all take turns being the asshole, but they're the asshole in different ways. Charlie's the loser asshole; Sweet Dee's the asshole w/ a vague conscience (and overactive libido); the good looking one's the suave asshole; and the bearded guy's the bro-down asshole.

god, are we done with the "completely unlikable cast does completely unlikable things" show yet?

I could watch a TV show based in Philadelphia, or I could rub my face with rotting Chinese food.

I just downloaded the first season because I saw Danny DeVito on the Daily Show the other night. I thought it was good, certainly summer stop-gap good, but it's no Entourage.

okay, so despite my comment about rotting chinese food above, i got a bunch of promo copies of this in the mail. and it can be quite funny-- really like the one about welfare, and the gay bar episode, etc.

here's the thing: i am interviewing Dennis (the suave one) and Dee (the chick, Dennis' sister) tomorrow for a magazine. any questions anybody wants to ask?

Charlie is probably one of my most favorite TV characters ever. I, too, thought the second season was a little bit of a let-down. Good to hear they've gotten it back on track for the third.

This season has been as awesome as the first two so far, and Charlie is just amazing. I haven't laughed as painfully hard as anything all year than the "Day Man/Night Man" songs from the episode a couple weeks ago.

I'm amazed at how Charlie's insane screaming ALWAYS makes me laugh. It should've gotten old and annoying by now, but it just gets better.
Great, great show (albeit uneven) and I'm so glad it's managed to last so long. I was sure it wouldn't get a second series, let alone a third, since I've heard so little talk about it.

Øystein, Sunday, 28 October 2007 22:57 (ten years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I love how they always find ways for Charlie to scream and Dennis to take off his shirt.

I've had "Dayman" stuck in my head all day at work today. I'll write a line of code, then a voice in my head goes "fighter of the night-man! (a-aa-aaaah)"
It might drive me insane, but it's fun.

This might be the greatest scene I've ever witnessed on television:

"Who Pooped the Bed?" is an incredible episode. WOLF HAIR.

BODY PROP (nickalicious), Thursday, 13 November 2008 20:56 (nine years ago) Permalink

I've been a little disappointed with the last few weeks of episodes. The first set of episodes was pretty great, though - it all kind of peaked with "Mac & Charlie Die". I have to admit that scene above in the mailroom was amazing, though.

Nhex, Thursday, 13 November 2008 21:00 (nine years ago) Permalink

Tonight was fucking incredible. I didn't actually hear anything they said during the home invasion scene over my own laughter; all I really remember of it was Dennis holding the boombox.

Charlie Kelly is inarguably one of my 5 favorite television characters of all time right behind John Locke and Patrick Star.

Charlie's final song of the Nightman play was one of the most touching things I've ever heard...seriously.

Chardee MacDennis

possibly my #1 favorite, although the Gang Dances Their Asses Off is a close contender

Οὖτις, Thursday, 16 March 2017 17:14 (one year ago) Permalink

The payoff with the whip and the vase in Get Trapped made me laugh. But in Chardee MacDennis, when they nail down the board because eventually Mac always forgets it's been nailed down and tries to flip it ("It's true, I will try to flip it" concedes Mac) ... Later in the episode, after all the lunacy, I had totally forgotten it had been nailed down myself, and when he tried to flip it I cracked up. I mean, after they nail it down and note why I thought to myself, OK, how are they going to make me forget it had been nailed down to make it a good payoff? And somehow they did it! Just slight of hand genius.

makes me sad to see folks crapping on "Frank's Little Beauties" upthread, I think that one's a classic. one of their better pre-credits scenes ("strange man...titty opportunity") and just in general I dig the whole loose vibe of the episode, the rest of the gang trying to pin everything on Frank ("face all busted to bits"), Frank's continual paranoia that he'll be accused of being a molester (particularly his little ditty about how "It's not OK to diddle kids"), the guys helping the one boy in the pageant (laser show + techno beats + "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall" = comedic gold). Not to mention one of Dee's greatest lines - "Your mother is a dumb, shit-mouth bitch." Girl: "You just said a lot of bad words."

Οὖτις is OTM that Chardee Macdennis is the best episode. Love the sequel too. Least favourites are probably Being Frank and the Ponderosa Trial.

I finally caught up with the 12th season and ... yeah, not feeling it. A lot felt off, like the actors all had better things to do, both literally and figuratively. It seemed like they were trying to fit in their scenes between other commitments (sometimes in a meta way, given Glenn's stint on "Fargo" and his character's Fargo-based double life), and a lot of the jokes felt particularly lazy (like the dildo bike, which was used not just in South Park but Burn After Reading as well, go figure) or really uncomfortable (like not once but twice using the graphic fantasy gunning down of a person - a child - of color for a cheap shock gag). There were some high points, but also a lot of awkward lows, and if the final episode were the final episode (apparently there will be at least 2 more seasons) I would be OK with that. But hey, 12 seasons, even with a few duds, is a pretty good run for any show.
