PROS: Some very funny episodes here. My favorites are "The Gang Recycles Their Trash," "The Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre" (impending nuptials to Liam McPoyle!), "The Gang Gets Analyzed," "Charlie's Mom Has Cancer" (including Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs' star turn as a touchy-feely healer), and "Charlie Rules the World" (an MMORPG with avatars for all the gang).
CONS: Only ten episodes, but that is not too far off par for this series. "Frank's Back in Business" and "The Gang Dines out" in particular feel perfunctory and phoned-in.
DEBATABLE: Some of the funniest episodes have distinct antecedents. "The Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre" will be much funnier to people who understand Dennis' prior interaction with Maureen Ponderosa and the gang's uneasy history with the McPoyle clan. "The Gang Gets Analyzed" harks back to a much earlier episode about a group intervention but if anything, the second time is even funnier so I forgive them. "The Gang Recycles Their Trash" in particular lifts dialog from earlier episodes in earlier years, particularly "The Gang Solves the Gas Crisis" from 2008 (selling gasoline door-to-door). This repetition was done on purpose but some people missed the joke and found the plagiarism lazy rather than comic.
MORE PROS: Really good bells-and-whistles. Four of the ten episodes have full commentary.Read more ›
Before I jump in, I must say that the series hit its peak with seasons 4 through 6; Season 7 isn't great on the surface, but the more you watch it, the funnier it becomes. This will most likely be the case with season 8. Some of the episodes don't leap out at you the way previous seasons did; there are a ton of references to previous seasons and feature some characters we haven't seen in a while, like Pop Pop, The Lawyer, Maureen Ponderosa, and the McPoyle twins. The Gang still get themselves into strange and dark situations, and even though people have become jaded to the kind of outrageousness that brought the show so much notoriety in the past, the chemistry is still there. I'm eagerly awaiting season 9, and while this is definitely not for beginners, it is worth adding to your collection if you love the show as much as I do.

Always Sunny is a show that may have increased in scale of deviancy and depravity, but has still remained true to core values it displayed from the very first episode. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Super Jet Ski Fun Monkeys
