'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' (10PM, FX) season 5 finale
Frank in skinny pants? Indeed, and who's not gonna tune in for that?! We sadly have to bid The Gang adieu for another season, but Charlie, Dennis, Mac, Sweet Dee and Frank are going out in typical wacky fashion, as they decide to re-enter the local flip cup competition (Flipadelphia), from which they have been banned for a decade. To prepare, they head to Dennis' old fraternity to practice, but find that their former rivals have gone ahead and grown up in the last decade.

Elizabeth BanksElizabeth Banks is at it again.

The television cameo all-star, fresh off her hilarious turn as the boozy best friend of gay couple Mitchell and Cameron on 'Modern Family', will make an appearance as Jack Donaghy's newest flame in a four-episode arc of '30 Rock' this season.

As a tribute to Banks -- who by now should have her own show based on past performances on other programs-- we count down six other high-profile cameo kings and queens of network television that should have shows of their own.

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Mac and Charlie Write a Movie

by Annie Wu, posted Dec 4th 2009 3:50AM
mac, charlie, always sunny
I think we all need to take a hot second to review what fantastic, life-improving ideas this season has presented us thus far. Earlier, we learned the benefits of funneling box wine into soda cans (beyond the immediate high class appeal of it all). Then we were schooled in the ways of the DENNIS System, allowing us to more efficiently get ladies to bang. And in this episode, we learned that keeping sausage links in your shirt pocket is a smart way to keep your hands free and open to get greasy in other ways.

This is all shaping up to be a fine education, folks. I think it goes without saying that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is Sesame Street for adults.

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Season 5 Episode 11 'Mac and Charlie Write a Movie' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 3rd 2009 11:29PM
It's Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaWhat happened on this week's 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Episode' episode, 'Mac and Charlie Write a Movie' -- in 100 words or less.

Dee's first mistake was in telling the boys she'd been cast in an M. Night Shyamalan movie. Her second mistake was in thinking she was a featured actress, when she was really just a blood-soaked extra.

Her gig inspired Mac and Charlie to develop an action movie with Dolph Lundgren as a scientist who smells crime, and whose head is a giant nose. Dennis tweaked the idea by pushing it fully into hard-core, graphic pornography.

Frank saw only dollar signs, and proceeded to become everyone's agent before ultimately stealing the extra gig for himself and his pocket of sausages.

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Season 5 Episode 10 'The D.E.N.N.I.S. System' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 20th 2009 9:49AM
It's Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaWhat happened on this week's 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Episode' episode, 'The D.E.N.N.I.S. System' -- in 100 words or less.

When Dennis unveils his foolproof system for cracking and sacking women, he discovers that Mac and Frank have their own less-sophisticated systems for picking up his scraps.

Charlie takes what he learned and immediately goes over to the waitresses to break her sink, so that he can fix it and win her over. Dee becomes paranoid that her boyfriend is using the system on her, so she begins to sabotage her relationship.

The gang gets together to fix it all at a carnival, but Frank accuses Dennis of giving the girl AIDS and Dee gets stabbed, proving ... that they're all losers.

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - The DENNIS System

always sunny dennis system
A weird thing has been happening this season, where I find myself really appreciating what the writers have been doing with the gang but I'm not laughing nearly as much as I should. This episode was a prime example of that. Dennis is notorious for his way with women, so hearing a full breakdown of the DENNIS System should have been a complete riot (a riot with cringing, sure). I smiled at certain parts and quietly enjoyed the scary-elaborate ways of Dennis and the rest of the gang, though ultimately, the laughs fell short. Perhaps things are feeling a little forced this season?

Trust in the douchiness of your characters and the chemistry of your actors, writers! The lines will come.

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: A Very Sunny Christmas' DVD Release Interviews

by Maggie Furlong, posted Nov 17th 2009 5:40PM
It's Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaWhen you think Christmas cheer, you think of the gang from 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' right? Right.

Which is why their new DVD release, 'A Very Sunny Christmas,' is the perfect stocking stuffer ... especially if the people on your list land on the naughty side of the spectrum, like Dennis Reynolds and the actor who plays him, Glenn Howerton. "Yeah -- we're both naughty dudes."

Filled with full-frontal elf nudity, violence, blood, a 'Christmas Carol'-style lesson for Dennis and Dee's grinch of a father and even some claymation, the special truly has everything a 'Sunny' superfan could ask for. And, of course, there's the added treat of seeing Danny DeVito naked. "Let me tell you something about Danny DeVito getting naked," Kaitlin Olson dishes. "He falls, and things spread open ... it was really amazing and I'm excited to share that with everyone."

So what would the gang ask Santa for? We got them to share some of that, as well as their own personal Christmas wishes. Like Danny DeVito's plea for Croc underwear, and the gang's thoughts on the wild success of the d*ck towel, a product that Sweet Dee herself tested out while sunbathing all summer. (You're welcome for that mental picture.)

Watch our 'Sunny' cast interviews and a very special exclusive clip right here ...

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Christmas Special rolls out red carpet

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Nov 15th 2009 9:05AM
A Very Sunny Christmas brings up the yuletide cast of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.The cast of the FX sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia gathered a stone's throw from Beverly Hills this week to celebrate the release of the show's new Christmas special.

A Very Sunny Christmas arrives on Blu-ray and DVD November 17 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Fox teamed with Maxim Magazine to hold a festive bash last Thursday night at Guys and Dolls Lounge in the shadow of Cedar Sinai Hospital on Beverly Blvd. (Event gallery below.)

A modest red carpet set-up gathered a cramped collection of reporters and photographers together to greet the arrivals of show stars Danny DeVito, Kaitlin Olson, Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day.

As if looking to mimic the bleak Philadelphia winter, rain sprinkled the LA streets in the hours leading up to the event -- and temperatures hovering in the low 50s made it a goose bumpy night for the several cocktail dress-clad ladies mingling in the crowd.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - Mac and Dennis Break Up

(S05E09) Well. This episode was certainly successful in further quelling the doubts of any audience members that are still, for whatever reason, unconvinced that all the guys from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia are actually super-gay for each other. Yeah, not just "gay" but "super-gay." Considering the adorable, almost symbiotic nature of the guys' relationships, I would probably just refer to them as "hetero lifemates," but Frank and Charlie play Nightcrawlers and we all know what happened onstage between Dayman and Nightman in "The Nightman Cometh." Don't fight it.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - Paddy's Pub: Home of the Original Kitten Mittens

Yes! Finally. The moment we've all been waiting for. Ever since the season five promos first aired, I have been eagerly anticipating some sort of context for Charlie's uncontrollable eyebrows and the ridiculous Kitten Mittens (or Kitten Mittons, as it were). Seeing the ad in full certainly didn't disappoint, though I wish we could have seen more Kitten Mittons throughout the episode. Admittedly, thirty-some minutes of cats struggling in booties probably doesn't sound like a hot idea, but, hey, animal humor has sustained many a clip show.

Plus, I heart over-enthusiastic Charlie.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - The Gang Wrestles for the Troops

(S05E07) This episode brought back many things that fans of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia have already come to know and love: nearly aggressive patriotism, needless shirtnessness, songs sung in falsetto and, of course, Rickety Cricket. I would like to also submit that the Birds of War get-up (pictured above) would be perfect for this Halloween, especially if you're desperate for few high-fives or silent nods of approval. It covers a wide range, as it appeals to both Always Sunny fans and people who like America and/or chickens. I mean, eagles.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - The World Series Defense

Always Sunny
Ooh! Things I learned in high school! This episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia was presented as a frame story, just like The Canterbury Tales. Did the gang out-Chaucer Chaucer!? Well, no, but it was a lot funnier than the Wife of Bath, I can promise you that.

There were a lot of excellent moments (read on to find out who won the "Best Retch-Face" award, which is as coveted as it is imaginary) and they made for a solid episode, though not one to immediately jump into my favorites. Admittedly, that's an unreasonable weekly expectation anyway. Oh well. At least we got some Greenman.
