It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: The First Decade – Seasons 1-10 Set Review
Take the best elements from Seinfeld and Arrested Development and you have It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Combining the social-degenerate-buddy formula (three men, one woman) with the beyond-dysfunctional-family element, Philadelphia creates scenarios that are so hysterical, wrong, appalling, familiar, embarrassing, uncomfortable, and entertaining, the show is addictive like staring at a car wreck when you know you shouldn’t, but you just can’t look away; it’s invigorating like a fresh, loud, wake-up slap on the face. The writing, the quick timing, and the performances are so natural, one wonders if anyone is even acting (but hopes to heaven they are). Danny DeVito joined the cast in the second season, in one of the best roles on TV. DeVito is “Frank,” the buddy dad that just wants to be part of the gang, the dad that looks good on paper, but the experience for his kids is more like taking care of a vicious dog that isn’t potty-trained. Three of his four talented cohorts (Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Rob McElhenney) not only star in the series, but write it as well. Thanks to their new take on old themes and a willingness to stretch the boundaries of appropriateness and exploit the audiences’ inner insecurities, originality is back on TV.
The Perfect Blend
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia does an incredible job of blending the comedic styles of two beloved sitcoms, Seinfeld and Arrested Development. The combination of the social-degenerate-buddy formula and the beyond-dysfunctional-family dynamic creates a unique and captivating viewing experience.
Danny DeVito’s addition to the cast in the second season is a game-changer. His portrayal of “Frank,” the buddy dad desperate to fit in with the gang, is one of the best roles on TV. The chemistry between DeVito and his talented cohorts, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Rob McElhenney, is palpable. Their performances are so natural that it’s hard to believe they’re acting. Each character brings their own quirks and flaws to the show, making them incredibly relatable and entertaining.
What sets It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia apart from other sitcoms is its willingness to push the boundaries of appropriateness. The show fearlessly exploits the audience’s inner insecurities, creating scenarios that are both outrageous and uncomfortably relatable. The writing is sharp, witty, and incredibly clever. With a fresh take on old themes, the show brings originality back to television.
