The Funniest Show You're Not Watching

The season premiere of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" was last night. If you aren't watching this show on FX, you should start now and then watch all the back episodes from the last 2 seasons.

The show follows the lives of 4 young bar owners (Dennis, Sweet Dee, Charlie and Mac) who find themselves in all sorts of appalling, selfish situations. In the past they've tried to sell a Nazi Uniform, make terrorist films, feign illness, and in this most recent episode, they exploit a dumpster baby into modeling. When the baby's skin isn't dark enough they attempt to take him tanning. While all this is happening Frank and Charlie are off rummaging through the dump for items they can resell, filling their apartment with so much trash that they are forced to sleep in the streets.

Danny DiVito also stars in the series and plays Frank the hilariously abrasive father of Dee and Dennis.

The show's appeal comes from its simply tasteless stories and its characters utter greed and laziness. Right up my alley!

The show's on Thursday nights at 10 on FX. TUNE IN!
