It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, often abbreviated as It's Always Sunny or simply Sunny, is an American sitcom that premiered on FX on August 4, 2005. New episodes continue to air on FX, with reruns playing on Comedy Central, general broadcast syndication, and WGN America—the first cable-to-cable syndication deal for a sitcom. The show was created, developed, and produced by Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day, all of whom star in the show. The series follows the exploits of "The Gang", a group of self-centered friends who run Paddy's Pub, a relatively unsuccessful Irish bar in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
From Wiki: Synopsis
The series follows "The Gang," a group of five depraved underachievers: twins Dennis Reynolds and Deandra "Dee" Reynolds; their friends Charlie Kelly, Ronald "Mac" McDonald. From season 2 onwards they are joined by Frank Reynolds, Dennis and Dee's father. The gang run the dilapidated Paddy's Pub, an Irish bar in South Philadelphia. Each member of the gang shows varying degrees of dishonesty, egotism, selfishness, greed, manipulation, pettiness, ignorance, laziness and unethical behavior, and they are often engaged in controversial issues. Episodes usually find them hatching elaborate schemes, conspiring against one another and others for personal gain, vengeance, or simply for the entertainment of watching one another's downfall. They habitually inflict mental, emotional and often physical pain. They regularly use blackmail to manipulate one another and others outside of the group.
Their unity is never solid; any of them would quickly dump any one of the others for quick profit or personal gain regardless of the consequences. Everything they do results in competition among themselves and a considerable amount of the show's dialogue involves the characters arguing or yelling over one another. Despite their lack of worldly success, the people in the Gang generally maintain high opinions of themselves and display an often obsessive interest in their own reputations and public images. Despite this high sense of self-worth, the Gang often has little sense of shame when attempting to get what they want and will often engage in activities which others would find humiliating, disgusting, or even preposterous, such as smoking crack cocaine in order to qualify for welfare, seducing a priest, or hiding naked inside a leather couch in order to spy on someone.
Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia carries a TV-MA in America due to strong, explicit language (including racial and ethnic slurs), explicit sexual content (including nudity, sexual intercourse, and references to deviant sexualities), crude humor (often making light of serious issues, such as abortion, suicide, death, and racism), some bloody comic violence, and scenes of drug abuse.
It's very funny alot of the humor is shock value but some episodes are hilarious!
