This week, the gang does a podcast and talks about why It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Matters. We dive into the history of the FX Original series, how it picked up where Seinfeld left off and made it darker, and why after all these years it’s a series that still holds on tight. In the same vein as our Archer episode, we have a conversation about shows about bad people doing bad things and how it works as a comedy when it’s done right. There is even a little Day Man.
If you’re unfamiliar, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been on air since 2005. The show follows egocentric Mac, Charlie, Dennis, Frank, and Dee, who make depravity into pretty much an art form. known as “The Gang,” they’re the owners of the unsuccessful Paddy’s Pub; a group of degenerates who loves nothing more than to scheme, conspire and mostly revel in each other’s misery. Whether gaming the welfare system, exploiting dumpster babies, pretending to be crippled, impersonating officers, or faking funerals, The Gang never stoops too low in the name of making a buck. We dive into the worst moments of the series, the best, and why it remains one of our favorite shows to this day.
