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 love it! and jess the cast feels likable to me while the things they do certainly may not be

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.

I have laughed my ass off at the three episodes of this that I've seen. I need to Netflix this shit.

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?

they are both very nice people. and sometimes that stuff in the mugs is actually real beer, i found out!

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.

mh, Monday, 22 October 2007 22:03 (ten years ago) Permalink

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.

You're a master of karate and friendship for everyone!
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.

I like this show! Season 4 is 4 episodes in already! "The Gang Solve the Gas Crisis" is one of the best of the whole series.

Charlie is married to the waitress in real life! Also, there is an episode later this season called "The Nightman Cometh"!

yeah when this show is "on" it's pretty hard to beat, lols-wise. there were more than a few stinkers peppered throughout seasons 2 & 3. much <3 for charlie tho. i want to hug that little guy.

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

Love the scene earlier in that episode when Charlie is explaining to Mac his system for sorting the mail.

"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.

BODY PROP (nickalicious), Friday, 14 November 2008 07:46 (nine years ago) Permalink

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

BODY PROP (nickalicious), Friday, 14 November 2008 07:47 (nine years ago) Permalink

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

The best thing to do now is a throwaway joke more than halfway into the season where its revealed that Dennis has the doll and has been having sex with himself all the time. Such an obviously funny thing to do and I'm sorry if I spoiled a really good joke before it happens.

The Waitress is Getting Married is a good starter episode. Or The Gang Give Frank an Intervention. Season 5 is probably the best one.

Could have sworn that was done by both Coen brothers and South Park first.

Finally caught up with the first episode of the new season. A little stiff, but the sex doll stuff was really funny.

I'm sorry. I tried this, a few episodes from the mid-seasons, and I couldn't find it funny. So much shouting!

Nah it was mostly quite forced. I spent a lot of it being confused and distracted by the escape room being set up in Dennis and Mac's appartment. Are there ones that really do this?

ha yeah that took me a second too, I was like "why are they in their apartment"

but the gendered problem-solving (or lack thereof) stuff was funny

OK, whatever stands as the worst episode of this show, this most recent one is down there with it.

The plane one had ambitions to do something clever, different and interesting I guess, mostly didn't come off at all though. Agreed Frank showing up in the toilet was the only real laugh.

chap, Sunday, 23 September 2018 11:05 (three weeks ago) Permalink

What was interesting, clever or different about an episode that not only was little more than a meta riff on a previous episode, but whose ostensible subject of satire - women-led gross out comedies - also seemed weirdly out of date? As was the women's march, which was (incredibly) almost two years ago. Even the call back to the waiter they torment fell flat. Like anyone gives a shit about that guy.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 23 September 2018 15:32 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Mac lifting Dee by the crotch was the biggest laugh of the season so far.

chap, Friday, 28 September 2018 08:11 (two weeks ago) Permalink

This episode was pretty funny/true to form. Even if the repeated gag of Frank coming back into the room on the phone was used maybe too much.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 28 September 2018 12:51 (two weeks ago) Permalink
