I just got this in the mail today, watched it, it's hilarious, as good as any episode. It's 40 minutes, the length of two episodes. The ending is a little weak, the rest is spectacular. That's really all there is to it. If you're willing to pay a standard DVD price for two episodes, go for it, I promise you won't be disappointed. If you don't think it's worth it, no one's twisting your arm, you have no right to complain.
What I think happened is this: The Always Sunny gang wanted to make a Christmas episode for broadcast, but when the suits saw this episode they balked and said "no way" to airing it. I mean, this thing pushes more boundaries than ever! So the gang added some minimal dvd extras (very minimal) and packaged it for a DVD release. (Possibly this was prompted by the suits at the network to recoup production costs, but maybe not.) Anyway it is an attempted cash grab and not worth the $20.
The clay-mation scene near the end was a GREAT idea, but I feel, a missed opportunity. It started well, but they went for gross and violent instead of just being Always Sunny. It was the one part I was really hoping to see, but it turned out to be a let down, and not funny at all.
The DVD Extras are s few deleted scenes with Mac and Charlie as kids, and a "Sing-a-Long With Always Sunny" which is HORRIBLE. They shot the 'Sing-a-Long' segment with odd lenses and tried to make it look like a Stephen King Horror movie, complete with odd sound effects. EPIC FAIL! Not funny, or even entertaining. Always Sunny is not about a nunch of serial killers! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
As the actual episode goes it is pretty good, but not great. There are some "Christmas Past" flashbacks that allow the viewer to possibly understand why all these people are so damaged. Dee and Dennis do not have well written parts in this one, It's mostly Mac and Charlie with some decent Frank bits thrown in.Read more ›
Charlie and Mac realize that the Christmases they've had in the past weren't true Christmas traditions, in turn they try to make their pasts right. Dennis and Dee are tired of Frank buying Christmas presents they wanted for himself, and find his old partner, Eugene, that he cheated out of millions of dollars to help show Frank that he's a bad man and needs to shape up or he will die alone.
A Very Sunny Christmas is no exception. Directed by Fred Savage (for those of you who know the name, yes it's who you think it is; for the rest of you it's Kevin from The Wonder Years) A Very Sunny Christmas fits right along with anything in the Philadelphia catalogue. It's groundbreaking, it pushes the envelope, and it's very funny. I can't point out the news articles they used for this, but because of the fact that they don't just use national news (brilliant!) at times the show is at times hard to determine where they got news from. I choose not to dock the crew for this because of the fact that the show is always funny, and, here, reminds us of how some people have it, or don't have it, at Christmas. It's always important for us to remember that not everyone has it as good as us at Christmas, and that's something that Sunny tries to show us in this series, in a very funny way.Read more ›
