Published on 08/04/2019

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has become a sensation. Brought to us by creator and actor Rob McElhenney, who developed it with Glenn Howerton, we have the most absurd adventures of five disgustingly selfish and obnoxious characters. Each actor from Kaitlin Olson, Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney to the fabulous Danny DeVito bring something new to the table. So, if you haven’t tuned in yet to see these bar owners of the Philadelphia bar, Paddy’s Pub, here’s why you should.

Concept Behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

The 12th season aired in 2017 and the show was renewed in 2016 for up to season 14! So, yeah, you could say the show is pretty popular. Anyway, it began with Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton’s idea that a guy would pretend to have cancer in order to borrow some sugar for all the coffee he made. From there, they made the pilot they would pitch to networks. FX Network ordered the first season after their pitch. Ever since then, fans have been watching the ridiculous antics of “The Gang” and cringing at their offensive acts.

Where To Begin With It’s Always Sunny

Where To Begin With Its Always Sunny

“Dennis and Dee Go on Welfare”
Season 2: Episode 3

Dennis and Dee (siblings on the show) decide they can get what appears to be easy money from the government. They purposely go on Welfare, hence the title. However, things do not go as planned, and the two become addicted to crack. What sounds down right depressing comes out as a hysterical and twisted episode.

“Sweet Dee’s Dating a Retarded Person”
Season 3: Episode 9

If you haven’t picked up on it by now, the show is anything but politically correct. The titles usually explain each episode’s plot quite well. Yes, Dee finds herself dating a rapper that may or may not be mentally challenged. Also, it’s important to note that in this episode we see that Charlie (Charlie Day) who is illiterate, somehow has been secretly writing a musical called, “The Nightman Cometh.” This will come back in another bizarre episode.

“Mac & Charlie Die”
Season 4: Episode 5 and 6

This two part extraordinaire involved Charlie and Mac faking their own deaths in order to hide from Mac’s paroled father. In other news, Dennis and Frank create a glory hole in the men’s bathroom of the bar. So, as you can imagine, things get pretty wild.

“The Nightman Cometh”
Season 4: Episode 13

This episode was so loved, the group took it on tour to 6 different cities. Basically, Charlie writes this elaborate but ridiculous musical that he forces everyone to be in. The group botches up the whole play and there’s some argument as to whether Charlie intended for one moment to be a rape scene or not. Probably, the angriest we have ever seen Charlie become…but you need to watch it to appreciate the full effect of their onstage debauchery.

“The D.E.N.N.I.S. System”
Season 5: Episode 10

Trying to explain how he’s so skillful with women, Dennis breaks down his system. It’s a twisted operation he has going on, no doubt about it. Each letter stands for a different step. There’s, Demonstrate value, Engage physically, Nurture dependence, Neglect emotionally, Inspire hope, and last, Separate entirely

“Charlie Kelly: King of the Rats”
Season 6: Episode 10

Charlie, the illiterate one, always ends up doing the gross work at the bar, including bashing rats. In this episode, he ponders whether a human’s life is actually more valuable than a rat’s. Also, the gang tries to throw him a surprise party involving his strange dreams and desires.

Jonathan Storm of The Philadelphia Inquirer said of the show, “It’s like Seinfeld on crack.” Now, even FX attached the popular tagline. Luckily for the crew, Danny DeVito joined the show after the first season and is credited with saving the show. Thank goodness for that! So, what are you doing? Go watch!



  1. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, awesome blog!

    You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Kudos!

  4. First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!
