This review is from: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 8 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The series as a whole is not everyone's cup of tea, but for millions of viewers like myself, we've been hooked since it first hit the scene (personally, I think the second season sealed the deal). The Gang's absurd schemes--and the behavior that follows--are a huge part of the show's success, but what I love most about Always Sunny is the acting and chemistry between the characters.
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.
