It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia [Show Review]

Frankie Ford – Sea Cruise.

Its focus on comedy aside, I take emotional comfort from Sunny. Sunny is about a collection of sociopaths, who do exactly what those types of people do. This might not seem fertile ground for comedy, and it’s certainly not an appealing show to most people – whom would too closely identify with the characters.

The formula of the comedy is simple: the characters do sociopathic shit. The joke therein is the closely scrutinized explanations of their  “reasoning” processes, the inevitable failure of sociopathic goals, and the very clever writing.

Essentially, Sunny is a bitching satire of many of the popular personalities and perspectives found in American culture [and of idiots in general]. It’s really quite wonderful, for me, to see these things vilified and packaged as comedy. Bad people should be made fun of.

To get a good feel for the show in general, I’d suggest starting with episode ten of season five: The D.E.N.N.I.S. System.
