It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!

Comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has to be the funniest show on television today. It's about four twenty-something year old friends and an Irish bar. Three of the four of them own the bar in Philadelphia, while the fourth is a bartender/server. The cast contains three guys and a gal, of which prior to this show I've been unfamiliar with their work. The show just wrapped up its second season on network FX where they've added Danny DeVito to the cast. Danny Devito plays the father to one of the bar owners and the gal server, where he is divorcing their mother and needs something else to focus on.

Each character is very different and brings something unique to the table. Dennis is the narcissistic twin brother of Deandra a.k.a Dee who, being the only female, gives the guys a piece of her mind whenever she sees fit. Mac is lighthearted and immoral at the same time. Last but not least Charlie is the easy target they all pick on, and happens to be my favorite character. The show covers unconventional and controversial topics, but in a comedic manner. Show topics like "Charlie Has Cancer" where Charlie pretends to be sick with cancer in order to win the sympathy and heart of a girl. "The Gang Runs For Office" is where the four of them get involved in politics, knowing they cannot win their haphazard cause, just to make an extra buck. One of my personal favorites "Charlie Gets Molested" is where they mistakening think Charlie was molested by a teacher back in high school and have an intervention for him years later.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is a great show where the writing is wity and hilarious, and the characters are addictive. When in season the 30 minute comedy airs on FX, Thursdays at 10:00 pm. Currently the show is airing re-runs on FX, Sundays at 11:00 pm where there are usually back-to-back episodes.
