'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Kinda-Sorta Kills Someone Off

February 26th, 2015 12:29pm EST
'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Kinda-Sorta
Is anyone else noticing that "It's Always Sunny's" title gags are starting to lose a little steam?

As solid as this season has been (astoundingly solid, considering how badly most shows sag once they hit the decade mark), that "Sunny" trademark of turning the episode title into a punchline has't been the same lately.

Episode titles like "Charlie Work" and "Psycho Pete Returns" just hang there. They describe the episode just fine, but there's no punch.

Remember how things were in the early seasons? Like when Dennis and Dee quit the bar to start new, super-successful dream jobs. Then, sec...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Gets Flanderized

February 19th, 2015 11:36am EST
'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Gets Flander
Ever heard of Flanderization? It's a real thing, birthed in the seedy time-suck that is TVTropes.org.

Essentially: the longer a TV show airs, the more likely its characters will become caricatures of their former selves. Specifically, a caricature of that character's biggest defining trait.

Ned Flanders (who went from gentle guy next door to ultra-conservative Christian loon) being the example that gives the trope its name.

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is acutely aware of Flanderization. It'd have to be, as "The Gang Misses the Boat" is one long ode to a show that's since turned f...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'Sunny' Delivers An Episode-Long, Absolutely Brilliant Porn Joke

February 12th, 2015 11:22am EST
'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'Sunny' Delivers An E
An episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" where the Gang gets all government surveillance-y on everybody sounds pretty amusing.

But an episode like "The Gang Spies Like U.S.," which uses a surveillance gimmick to disguise that it's nothing but jokes about Asian porn? So much better.

That's what "Sunny" gave us last night. Mac and Dennis are fed up with the the Chinese fish factory that's apparently been across the street from Paddy's Pub forever.

They invite along Dee to do some spying, which sets off Frank and Charlie's alarms (because when does anyone invite Dee to do anything?...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Jews, Penis Jewelry, And Other Online Dating No-Nos

January 22nd, 2015 9:59am EST
'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Jews, Penis Jewelry,
When it comes to online dating, which is the biggest faux pas?

Having your cock ring slip off mid-date? Sleeping with hordes of what could colloquially be referred to as "toad men?" Screaming that you're going to "rate" everyone in an upscale restaurant? It really sounds like "rape" if you scream it loud enough.

Well, we're not going to answer this great moral quandary. And neither is "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," even as "The Gang Group Dates" demonstrates just how badly the Gang can torpedo an online date.

Here's the situation: Dee introduces the Gang to a site called Bunchers, ...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Premiere Recap: Seriously, The Gang Should Be Dead Of Alcohol Poisoning

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Premiere Recap: Seriously, T
That metallic crinkle-crinkle-crinkle noise you hear is the tenth season of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," having arrived at last. And having waded through a waist-high sea of beer cans to get here.

The episode: "The Gang Beats Boggs." The situation: the Gang... beating Boggs. Specifically, the record set by former Boston Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs- drinking 50 beers on a single cross-country flight.

Or maybe 60. Or maybe 70. None of the gang is really clear on what the record is. According to some sources, it's 64.

So "The Gang Beats Boggs" is a kind of semi-bottle episode (...

The trailer begins with Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day) visiting Nick's old boss Harkin (Spacey) in prison seeking his help masterminding a new plot to kidnap the son of an investor who ripped them off and hold him for ransom.

Charlie Day Gives A Fantastic And Hilarious Commencement Speech At Merrimack College

May 21st, 2014 3:42pm EDT
Charlie Day
Always Sunny star and producer Charlie Day steps up to the podium to give a commence speech for the graduating class of his alma mater, Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusettes.

His speech is snarky, fun, a bit crude, but most of all, inspiring. Like many celebrities who give speeches, Charlie's speech is actually a learning experience. As he himself says, it's not particularly eloquent or refined - but it doesn't need to be, and if it was, it simply wouldn't have been the same.

He tells the students about a young Charlie Day who faced some very relatable crossroads, who was h...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Gets Quarantined

October 17th, 2013 2:18pm EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
If "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award" was the Sunny creators' way of putting the Television Academy on notice, "The Gang Gets Quarantined" is an exercise in providing some excellent material for Glenn Howerton's Emmy nomination reel. As a whole, it's not one of the best episodes in recent memory, but thanks to Howerton's performance and some really funny moments, it manages to stay just above average.

One of those funny moments is the cold open, which finds the original gang doin' a little East Coast swing. It's been a while since we've seen them harmonizing their hearts out (my...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: Mac Day

October 3rd, 2013 3:14pm EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Yesterday was no ordinary day in Philadelphia — it was Mac Day. Mac Day, as we discovered, was just one of the five days that the gang created for each member to make everyone else do whatever the days' honoree wants. At first blush, it seems like a strangely generous setup for such a selfish group of people. But as Mac Day rolls along, it becomes apparent that each member of the gang is simply going through the motions until it's their day, all while filing away the events of their friends' days to use as fuel for future mockery.   

Being the religious one of the group, Mac patterns the s...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap -- Gun Fever Too: Still Hot

September 12th, 2013 10:42am EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Last night on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the gang addressed the hot-button issue of gun control in the same fashion that the rest of the world does: they formed two opposing sides who yelled at each other about how stupid and wrong they are.

Frank set everything in motion with his appearance on "Good Morning Philadelphia" (hoagie in hand), where he described his recent experience being held up by gun-toting thugs. Crediting his survival to his two pieces that are on him at all times, he urged everyone to get down to Gunther's Guns to arm themselves. This whipped the rest of the g...

Several celebrities attended the "Pacific Rim" premiere in Hollywood on Tuesday. Rinko Kikuchi, above, wore a slinky black embroidered dress that showed off her legs.

Not familiar with the Japanese actress? She received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for her role in the 2006 film "Babel."

"Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam also attended the premiere, looking dapper in a black suit with his hair slicked back and a short beard.

During a press tour for the film, the actor admitted he smacked Kikuchi's stuntwoman in the face during a fight scene, giving her a black eye three d...

First Trailer For 2014 Block-Buster 'The Lego Movie' Released

"In 2014 The World's Greatest Heroes Will Join Forces For The Biggest Movie Ever Assembled," begins the trailer for next summer's literal block-buster The LEGO Movie.

The first trailer for the film was released on Tuesday (with the slightly different international version making its debut on Wednesday), and if the new feature-length adventure is anything like the recent Batman TV specials, it's sure to please.

The story features on Emmet, an "ordinary" LEGO Minifigure who is mistaken for the legendary "MasterBuilder" and thrust into an adventure to stop an evil tyrand from destroying the...

New 'Pacific Rim' Trailer Promises To 'Cancel The Apocalypse'

April 30th, 2013 12:07pm EDT
Pacific Rim
A full-length, action-packed trailer has been released for Pacific Rim... and it's everything you hoped it would be.

In the new trailer, we get to see tons of robot-on-giant monster fighting as well as extended looks at how Jaegers (that's the name of the giant robots) are piloted from the inside.

We also get more than a few lines from Charlie Day of Always Sunny in Philadelphia, although we admit it's hard to take the comedian seriously in a role as a technician.

There's also hints at the relationship between Charlie Hunnam's and Rinko Kikuchi's characters, who are pilots rushed into ...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'The Gang Recycles Their Trash'

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
After a Hopper incident that caused me to miss the premiere of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” (insert a Liam McPoyle slow-mo “Noooooooo!” here), the DVR gods were merciful and finally allowed me to get in on some Season 8 action. Although, while watching the cold open of this season’s second episode, I was a little concerned that, through some sort of weird, wormhole-y, space-time mix-up, I’d actually recorded an episode from Season 3, specifically “The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby.” As Dennis, Mac and Dee waded through the trash piled up behind Paddy’s, Dennis’s remarks about their “thr...

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are set to reunite for a follow-up to Horrible Bosses after the screenwriters agreed to pen a sequel, according to a report.

Now the movie's writers, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, have signed a deal to create a follow-up - and the male leads are expected to star in the sequel, according to The Hollywood Re...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'The High School Reunion Part 2: The Gang's Revenge'

December 16th, 2011 11:28am EST
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” closed out its seventh season last night with the conclusion of last week’s high school reunion tale, and thankfully the second half was better than the first. Still, it didn’t come close to the high expectations I had for it. I may eventually come around on this (as I did with “The Nightman Cometh,” an episode I inexplicably didn’t like upon first viewing), but for now I’m calling it the series’ weakest season ender yet. (Oh, there will be rankings. Just wait.)

Picking up from where we left off last week, the gang is collectively humiliated. Dennis a...

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
In the first half of the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” Season 7 finale, the gang heads to their high school reunion. Although there were plenty of familiar names and faces and some good moments, the episode wasn’t up to the level that I expect from “Sunny” – especially for a season-ender. Hopefully, the second half will wrap up this season in the proper demented and darkly funny fashion.

It’s always been apparent that high school was a pivotal time for the gang, and none of them seem to have changed very much since those days. Dee may have physically changed – from the Aluminum M...

Sorry for the delay with today's recap, folks. I was having some Internet problems. I blame Obama.

This week, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” tries a theme episode – the action-movie-within-an-action-movie, “Thunder Gun Express” – with mixed results. Although there are some funny moments, it never reaches the level of the brilliant “Community” theme episodes, against which all theme episodes must now be measured. Compared to its own attempts at themes or gimmicks, this installment of “Sunny” is certainly better than “Frank’s Brother” or “The Gang Cracks the Liberty Bell,” but not near...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'How Mac Got Fat'

While last week’s episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” started in the middle and never looked back, this week’s installment is told mostly in flashback. Via the classic church confessional setup, Mac finally acknowledges the elephant in the room: that he is the elephant in the room. (Oh, snap!)

Although Mac now realizes that the extra mass around his waist isn’t muscle, he isn’t about to take responsibility for being fat. As that poor priest quickly discovers, “How Mac Got Fat” is a convoluted story, told from Mac’s POV, that explains why the Paddy’s gang of “sinners and pricks...

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” shook up its formula this week with "The Gang Gets Trapped," a creative yet odd episode that caught up with the gang in media res. For a story that was pretty much all "middle"—with no flashback to its beginning and an awkward ending—it was easy to follow, wildly entertaining and jam-packed with laugh-out-loud moments.

The episode takes place entirely in an unknown person's home, and begins with Dennis and Dee trapped in the closet with R. Kelly nowhere to be found and Frank hiding under a bed. With a clever bit of exposition, Dennis quickly ge...

This week, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” asks the questions: Would Paddy's Pub have more business if it had a Facebook page? Why does Dennis seem like a Facebook novice, when he should have long been using any number of social media sites to lure women down to the bang bunker? Is shushing just about the most annoying thing a person can do to another person? Can a man blow a sign off a building? Some of these are answered; the most vexing one is not. I mean, seriously, how has Dennis overlooked the woman-hunting power of the Internet thus far? Wasn't he on MySpace back when Frank creat...

This week on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the gang introduces us to Chardee MacDennis. Although that sounds like a character from some terrible young adult fiction series, it’s not. It’s a game. Actually, to quote Charlie, “it’s not just a game, it’s a war.”

It seems that once upon a time, the gang created their own board game – a game that is once again being dusted off as an antidote to mind-numbing boredom. I immediately love this idea because I remember back to when I was a kid and how my friends and I would occasionally attempt to create the “best game ever” and fail miser...

Although it's not on the same level as the first few episodes of this season, the latest episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is definitely a step up from the meh-ness of last week's "Frank's Brother."

In "The Storm of the Century," we get to see how each member of the gang reacts to a potential crisis—in this case, the kind of media-hyped storm that drives people with perfectly normal digestive systems to run out and stock up on a year's supply of toilet paper.

It's revealed that Paddy's basement is equipped with a bunker, which Dee insisted upon prior to Y2K (the "robopocay...

Danny DeVito in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
It seems that after the frenzied hilarity of the first three episodes and last week’s rather dark turn, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is taking a breather with a rather lackluster decade-spanning flashback fantasy. But given that this season has been strong right out of the gate, that’s perfectly OK.

Much like the other fantasy ep, “The Gang Cracks the Liberty Bell,” “Frank’s Brother” probably won’t end up on a lot of “best of” lists nor does it really warrant repeated viewings. Still, it’s not without its charm. However, most of that charm doesn’t come from any of the main charac...

In its fourth episode, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" takes a quick meta-moment to acknowledge to the audience that it's really pushing the envelope this year. It seems a bit odd (and maybe a little late) to make that acknowledgement on a show that's always tested the boundaries of good taste. So what is the gang doing now that warrants poking a hole in the fourth wall? Oh, just throwing a baby funeral. That it's fake doesn't make it any less uncomfortable.

The not-really-dead baby in question is the one Dee gave birth to last season, and the one she's claimed (and intends to contin...
