What is It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia?

Wikipedia wrote:The series follows "The Gang", a group of five depraved underachievers: twins Dennis Reynolds and Deandra "Sweet Dee" Reynolds; their friends Charlie Kelly, "Mac", and, from season 2 onward, Frank Reynolds, the man who raised Dennis and Dee. The Gang runs the dilapidated Paddy's Pub, an Irish bar in South Philadelphia.

Each member of the gang shows varying degrees of dishonesty, egotism, selfishness, greed, pettiness, ignorance, laziness and unethical behavior, and they are often engaged in controversial activities. Episodes usually find them hatching elaborate schemes, conspiring against one another and others for personal gain, vengeance, or simply for the entertainment of watching one another's downfall. They habitually inflict mental, emotional and physical pain. They regularly use blackmail to manipulate one another and others outside of the group.

Their unity is never solid - any of them would quickly dump any one of the others for quick profit or personal gain regardless of the consequences. Everything they do results in contention among themselves and much of the show's dialogue involves the characters arguing or yelling at one another. Despite their lack of success or achievement, The Gang maintain high opinions of themselves and display an obsessive interest in their own reputations and public images. Despite this high sense of self-worth, The Gang has no sense of shame when attempting to get what they want and often engages in activities which others would find humiliating, disgusting, or even preposterous, such as smoking crack cocaine in order to qualify for welfare, seducing a priest, driving while eating cereal, hiding naked inside a leather couch in order to spy on someone, even huffing glue and eating cat food.


In short it's a show about the worst people in the world and it's often hilarious.


Where can I watch it?

Seasons 1-11 are on Netflix right now and season 12 has just started airing on Wednesday nights in America. While past events are occasionally referenced, episodes of Sunny are almost entirely self-contained with no learning or character development on the part of The Gang. If anything their behaviour continues to degenerate.


Why should I watch it?


You will watch it.


Because of the implication.

Sunny. :wub:

Consistently the funniest show on TV.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Nice. Hope it keeps it up then.

Both episodes have had a real focus on creepy Dennis, so Im semi expecting him to have a full breakdown by the end of the series.

I've really liked every episode of Sunny I've seen (not many of them) and have the first series on DVD. However, getting hold of any of the others is pretty tough - I've regularly checked Amazon for season 2 but no dice or silly price. It seems that going onto Netflix has killed any desire to sell DVDs, which is no fun for someone like me, who'd like them :(

I think Netflix is really the only realistic way you're going to be able to pay for IASIP. Physical media is being shifted away from.

It can be hit or miss at times but when its good, its strawberry floating good. Still think Dennis and Dee getting hooked on crack in S2 was my favourite :lol:

Started watching this on Netflix a couple of years ago, blew through the whole series in no time at all, definitely the funniest show on tv for me.

Going through S2 just now, just watched the one where they get held hostage by the McPoyles (:vom:).

I've often wondered how that level of unpleasantness could hold up for 9 (now 10) series, this thread gives me comfort that they manage it without any issue.

Such horrible people. Horrible.

But very funny.

Really Charlie is the only one who isn't a sociopath.

That's why it's so funny. They are all (I guess with exception to Charlie) horrible, insecure people. But they are all likable at the same time. It's all very well done imo. Bar a few episodes I can't think of many that I don't thoroughly enjoy. Easily one of my favourite shows. Some when I watched it even in the later seasons would have me laughing so hard I was teary eyed. :wub:

Franks 'dont diddle the kids' song was incredible. The morticians makeup he had on while singing it was just perfect :lol:
