Who says the sitcom is dead? Not since Arrested Development has a sitcom been this truly hysterical and quick paced that you don't know what to expect next. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, originally premiering on the FX network in 2005, revolves around four friends: Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), and his sister Dee (Kaitlin Olson); all of whom own and run an Irish bar in downtown Philadelphia. They get into all kinds of crazy hijinks through misunderstandings and just plain bad judgement, ranging from being mistaken as a gay bar to Charlie lying about having cancer. Yes, there's nothing really wholly original about the show's premise, but it remains hysterically funny throughout. The second season of the show finds Danny DeVito joining the cast as Dennis and Dee's father, who isn't the sanest of the bunch either. This DVD set compiles the first two seasons of the show, and is definitely worth picking up for viewers who turned it when it first premiered, as well as newer viewers who may be anxiously awaiting the upcoming and long awaited third season of this very funny show.

Anybody can make a comedy about a gang of hard-drinking idiots who get into amusing situations. But it takes genuine perspective and brains to make that kind of humor work on more than one level, to make it pay off with any kind of irony, to make it say something about culture and society and that old cold cruel finger of fate.

Time and again, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" pulls off those mean feats.

Perfect example: Upon learning that his elementary school classmates were possibly molested by their gym teacher, one of the characters is thrown into a crisis of self-esteem, essentially: Why was the coach attracted to the other kids and not him? He was a much cuter kid than they were ... wasn't he???

Much like Ren and Stimpy used to change size and proportion depending on their surroundings, the boys and girl of "Sunny" alternate in their thought processes between brain damaged and strangely elloquent -- but since it's usually in the service of making a cultural or political point, it's a device that works really well.

"Sunny" is easily one of the best sit-coms on the air right now. The masses who continue to mourn the loss of "Arrested Development" would do well to turn their attention to this underseen little gem.

This is a potent blend of high- and lowbrow -- a kind of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" centered around a quartet of boozy brats, or "Friends" with a more realistic amount of toxicity and "pushing 30 desperation."

The dialogue flows like good improvisation and the plotting is always clever and more complicated than you'd expect (in that respect it even one-ups "Curb" whose twists can be viewed from a mile away [though that's admittedly part of "Curb's" charm]).

This comedy series definately isn't for everybody. It's a completely different species than "Two and a Half Men" or "War At Home". This is a thinkers comedy series in that the jokes come fast so you really have to pay attention, but the reward is gut-busting laughs. The charactures are very well defined, as well as the group dynamic (the "gang") so you are immediately sucked in. They have spent a lot of time writing for Season 3, so buy this set and gear up for a new quality season!

On my cable plan I dont get to see the FX channel, which is the channel for this series on cable. Rather, I saw a promo for the 3rd season (look for it with youtube searching for danny devito and fred savage.) It was so funny that it nudged me to buy the 1st two seasons and I dont regret that purchase in the least. Im not one to buy whole seasons of series. But this one really fits my sense of humor. The comedy is pretty low brow, the characters are selfish, bottom of the barrel with little redeeming qualities. And the laughs come easily. Reminds me of what a bunch of drunks would come up with as they riff on different subjects. No holds barred, vulgar as all hell, outrageous like Family Guy meets Arrested Development. Devito isnt really the standout. The other four actors are the draw. At times it remains so over the top that you might get tired of it. But overall, the series is a great diversion. Fantastic show that will never win an emmy.

Take equal parts "Arrested Development" and "Seinfeld" and add in a little "South Park" and you have "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

Not since the departure of "Arrested" has there been such a narcissistic group of characters. In fact, these folks make the Bluth bunch seem downright nice. FX's lowbrow comedy features a trio of friends who co-own an Irish pub - Dennis, Mac, and Charlie (who also co-created and write the series). Adding some estrogen to the mix is Dennis' twin sister Dee, an aspiring actress. They leave nothing sacred and no taboo safe from scorn. Like the Seinfeld gang, they are equal opportunity offenders - other races, religions, elderly, and even the disabled - each is treated with the same nihilistic disdain.

Whether the gang is trying to "altruistically" give teens a safe drinking haven, fighting over who's the sexiest man candy to their suddenly all male-clientele, coaching a team of at-risk youths in a basketball league, tossing flaming poop bombs into neighboring businesses, changing sides while cruising for hot chicks in a pro-choice/life rally, "banging" an inappropriate partner, or running for office hoping to resign with a bribe, each episode is pure comic genius. And the casting of swarthy and height challenged Danny DeVito as the twins father (who'd much rather be a buddy) in the second season is an inspired choice.

Touted as Seinfeld on crack (and two characters even experiment with it to secure unemployment benefits), no character is more put upon then Charlie. Like Kenny from South Park, many of the episodes are devoted to putting him in harm's way ("Charlie Gets Crippled; Charlie Got Molested; Charlie Gets Cancer").
