  • Its definitely a rare show...

    2.5
    Its rare in the sense that this show has exactly 2 types of fans - people who will beat you up and throw your ass in a dumpster if you insult the show, and people who will buy you a beer if you insult it. Theres no one who thinks its 'okay'.

    This is an honest review I'm not just someone jumping on the hate bandwagon.

    The first two season were decent. fresh. ( The second, for me, was better coz i love danny). The succeeding seasons are so bad, its painful to watch. The show is just pointless. The insults used to be kinda funny, but now its as if the cast really are racist. There is 0 substance. Its a bit funny if you think about the scenarios, but the delivery is horrible. They really are trying too hard.



    Sunny in Philly about 5 friends who own a bar in philly and about the stuff that happens to them. It has potential, but it has miles, nay, lightyears to go before it even reaches the level of 'Seinfeld'.

    I thought the most overated show out there was HIMYM but HIMYM is much better than this farce.

    South Park and Family Guy are two of the most racist, offensive and dirtiest comedies out there, but they are also hilarious! sunny in philly ... is merely racist,offensive and dirty.



    The part thats bad is, i can see its being improvised. people should only know that from wikis or something, but i can see the stuff is being made up as it goes along.



    IMO, I DO NOT recommend you waste your time on this "Comedy Show".moreless

    greatest comedy show all time bar none, hands down, class dismissed
  • As far as laughs per minute go, It's Always Sunny is quite possibly the funniest show of all time.

    It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia follows five "best friends" who own what is considered the "worst bar in Philly". All of them are just as despicable and horrible as each other. All off them somewhat distinctive in their roles of pure assholeness. Mac being the delusional, egocentric and repressed homosexual. Charlie being the always unpredictable wild card, who is probably the most humanised in his ongoing romantic pursue for a local waitress. Dennis with his worringly lack of empathy for anything is sociapathic even for this group of nihilists, to the point where theres hints of psychosis. Dee being the dartboard for verbal abuse from the rest of the gang (when they dont have other petty quarrels with one another) simply for being female. Frank is certainly the greediest of the bunch, described as a troll and conducts the most appaling money making schemes you're likely to see any time soon. If you were to poll the favourite characters in Sunny, it would be almost a five way tie. Everyone I ask has a different favourite character.



    The show itself is up to its tenth season, and in what can now be considered the most consistent sitcom ever made, classic episodes are still being made. There isn't a weak season in the entire run. It starts with a bang, hilarious from the get go, up until season 2, where the beloved Frank (played by Danny DeVito) is introduced, which put the show into King of Comedy tier. The earlier seasons have a one note formula with simple concepts (which is great in some sense, because they can truly focus on the comedy) but before they start feeling repetitive, the latter seasons become more experimental and go beyond their comfort zone. Though this is somewhat risky, when it pays off it pays off big time. However I'd be lying if I said this means there wouldnt be any subpar episodes. To my knowledge though I can think of only two unwatchable episodes. Thats 2/114! For a show with this many episodes thats truly impressive.



    Its Always Sunny is maybe the most politically incorrect show since South Park. No subject is taboo, and even though there is no strong language or nudity, it's certainly not for the faint of heart. What I love the most about the show is it doesn't try and pull on your heart strings ever like so many sitcoms. It knows you have come to sit down and laugh your ass off so every last second is spent attempting to make this happen. If you wanted emotion your time investment would have been used better on many of the brilliant dramas currently airing.



    The show has fantastic concepts for episodes, and though the executions are not always amazing, they knock the ball out the park with the left field twists and reveals. Need I remind the makes this is a sitcom, not a high quality TV drama? Not that I'm complaining!moreless

    So basically you're saying that you have a favourite tv show and Sunny is not like that show. You have your taste and that's ok.



    The characters are definitely not one-dimensional, but you'd have to actually watch the show to recognize that. I guess you'd like the characters' traits to be served on a plate for you. In real life, nobody is one-dimensional, everybody has some depth. But still, 90% of the time we are just being ourselves. It's the same in this show, they are who they are, but if the circumstances are right, they will reveal their deeper nature. I'd say that's pretty realistic.



    Talking about realistic, the dialogs in this show are one of the most natural I've seen (they often improvise, so that's no surprise). In most tv shows and films you just know "people don't talk like that". So again, I would definitely not say Sunny is not realistic. Unless you mean their actual shenanigans, because yes, they are unlikely to happen in everyday situations, but you don't watch tv shows to experience typical situations.moreless

    What's the Best Comedy Block on TV Right Now? (POLL)

    There are lots of comedy couplings on the air, but some of them should think about breaking up.

  • BIG QUESTIONS

    What's Next for FX, Now That Justified and Sons of Anarchy Are Gone?

    Without those two tentpoles, the network's programming slate is full of question marks, aging offerings, and a weird mix of good shows with bad ratings and bad shows with solid ratings.
