It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Wow, the latest season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has just flown by as we're already at the penultimate episode of this year. And it's been a strong season, one of their best ever, which leads to high hopes for "The Gang Makes Lethal Weapon 6," which sounds amazing from the outset. Alas.
This season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has been on fire, so it will be interesting to see what 'Game of Thrones' creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss bring to Paddy's Pub as they're the writers of tonight's episode "Flowers for Charlie." Hopefully they'll steer clear of too many winks at Westeros.
We're more than halfway done with Season 9 of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' and it's already looking like an all-timer. They show and its creators have been on fire, and maybe the ten-episode season or something kicked it up a notch. Tonight's episode, "The Gang Gets Quarantined" wasn't as sharp as previous episodes, but it was solid -- perhaps this was their Halloween episode.
Tonight's 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is spin on the old arthouse hit 'Run Lola Run' as it shows what goes inside the gang's head as they confront a robbery. With this ninth season proving very strong, tonight's episode "The Gang Save the Day" continues this streak with smart laughs throughout.
Though 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has been on for nine seasons, the show has only once been nominated for an Emmy (a Primetime Emmy for "Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or a Variety Program" at that), and tonight's episode pokes fun at the show's lack of awards and at trying desperately to get an award.
'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is kicking off its ninth (but probably not final) season on the new Fox channel FXX, which means it's possible many thought they had their DVR's set to record this, but didn't reprogram their machines. Alas, this new channel may take some getting used to, but it takes no time to settle back into the antics of the 'Philly' crew in "The Gang Broke Dee."
