    I must say that I watched season 1 and 2 every single day for a few years before my mom bought the season 3 DVD. I was completely anticipating this episode and I really liked it. My anticipation of this episode really helped me find humor in it that nobody else did. Mac did such a good job with Dee, and I laugh every time when he just acts like he did in her apartment. His rudeness really is my favorite attribute he has. I have to say that they really vamped up the connection of Charlie and Frank which is now reflects their characters stories. So we can say that the Charlie moments are going to have to involve Frank in some way now. When I first saw this series Charlie was my favorite but I slowly found Dennis to be my favorite after a while. I've got to say that Glenn's acting ability is what makes this show work. This episode was classic Dennis.moreless
  • Dee and Mac exploit a baby they find in the Skip, Dennis tricks an Activist and Charlie is convinced that Frank is his Dad

    8.1
    The most Immoral comedy ever returns and is still as funny as ever. As usual you can't believe some of the things the character's do instead of running their bar. Dee and Mac exploit a baby they find in the Dumpster who they end up calling DB. When after trying to make him a tv baby by going to an agent and being told that white babies didn't appeal right now, to take him to a tanning Parlour is beyond ridiculous. Where as Dennis's plot was manipulative the baby thing was just exploitative and you literally were left shouting 'you gotta be kidding me, nooo, what are you doing!' at the TV while simultaneously laughing. Charlie and Frank's story this week revolved around rummaging around in the trash and dressing up like tramps after Charlie finds a Saracen sword at the dump. This leads to further discussions of Frank being Charlie's father. This is funny but the least likely plot strand as it serves more to intersect with the Dumpster baby story with the child services at the end. How cool is that Saracen sword though!?



    Another good episode, I look forward to the next one.moreless
  • Strong season 3 opener

    9.3
    The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby is another very funny episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This episode see's Mac and Dee looking after a baby that was left in the trash, Frank and Charlie looking through bins for anything and Denis taking up an environmental course. The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby will make you laugh from start to finish in particular the parts where Charlie and Frank are looking through bins. The Mac and Dee story is the strongest with a lot of great scenes and the revelation of Charlie's paternity is a funny touch. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is probably the best comedy on television right now and this episode keeps the memento of the series going.moreless
