Season 3 was out for sale today! I have heard the commentaries are hilarious, and I was hoping someone might report back for me. Any word? And for anyone wondering what to expect, I found this which details what will be on the DVD: DVD Review
The great folks behind It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia have organized a traveling game show, where fans (at colleges) can answer trivia questions about the program in the hopes of winning their very own Golden Dumpster Baby.

No, this is not the title of the Season 4 pilot. Kaitlin Olson, or Sweet Dee on the show, recently broke her back. According to Rob McElhenney, she fractured her sacrum on the fourth of July. This causes conflicts with the filming, because Danny DeVito is leaving the set in August to film and direct his new movie, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. Here's the link:
So, apparently Mac, Charlie and Dennis were on hand at San Diego's Comic-Con to give a little insight into Season 4. I hear Charlie sang Nightman because a girl fan asked him to. Sigh, heartbreaker! :) Here's a recap for anyone interested in hearing what they had to say: Comic-Con Update from RachelL: Here's video of the panel!
For those of you that have watched some It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia , share which character is your favorite and why! For those of you that are still slacking, here's an introduction to each of the main characters: Dennis Dennis is Dee's brother and part-owner of Paddy's Pub. He is portrayed as reasonably intelligent, though simultaneously the most self-centered and unprincipled of the bunch. He's also incredibly vain (starving himself for days after he sees himself on TV and is convinced that his face looks fat). Choice quote: "Hi. I'm a recovering crackhead, and this is my retarded sister I take care of. I'd like some welfare please." Mac Mac is supposed to be the "manly man" of the bunch, though he desperately seeks the approval of others (when he thinks Charlie was molested by a former teacher he's upset that the same person didn't want to molest him). Mac's father is in jail and Mac dealt drugs in high school. Choice quote: "This music sounds like whales raping each other." Dee Dee is Dennis' sister who tends bar at Paddy's Pub. She frequently fights/disagrees with the guys and aspires to be an actress. Dee was originally supposed to be the group's voice of reason, but has ended up being as insane as the rest of the characters. Choice quote: "Why can't you just die and leave your money to your kids like normal parents?" Charlie Charlie co-owns the bar with Dennis and Mac. He allows the rest of the batch to constantly take advantage of him, making him do "Charlie work", which is any type of grunt work that they don't want to deal with. He seems to be illiterate, bordering on retarded. Choice quote: "I'm in love with a man called God. Does that make me gay? Does that make me gay for God? You betcha." Frank Reynolds Frank, played by Danny Devito, is the father of Dennis and Dee (for the second season of the show, at least). He's as self-centered and immoral as his children, even if he's not really their father... Choice quote: (to Dennis and Dee): "Are you two banging each other?!? Because that's just not right!"
Still not sure if It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is for you? I've done my best at assembling a variety of clips from the show that will give you a sense of the program's humor. The better clips are from Hulu below (beware, because the show is rated MA, you must have a Hulu account and be logged in to view them): Dennis resembles a child molester: A Problem for Dennis Dennis tries to sleep with Mac's mom: Dennis Hits on Mac's Mom Charlie's Intervention (everybody mistakenly believes he was molested as a child): Where Were You Touched Trying to collect welfare: Crackhead and Retard Also, for international viewers or people that don't want to bother creating a Hulu account, here's a few YouTube clips: Chopping Cats Choosing Basketball Teams Preaching religion
Last week we had a great run with our first Comedy of the Week , 30 Rock , and now it's time to make a new selection for Week 2! I have decided to make it my personal mission in life, especially since it has just been renewed for 39 more episodes , to get more people watching one of the funniest shows on TV, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia . Sunny focuses on 4 friends that operate a bar in Philadelphia, Paddy's Pub. Many of the show's scenes take place inside of the bar, but be forewarned, Sunny is no Cheers. It is not your standard comedy with standard sitcom situations. It thrives on drawing humor out of the uncomfortable and inappropriate. If you find yourself laughing at those jokes that you have to first look around and check if it's ok to laugh about - Sunny just might the show for you - because some of the show's funniest moments have occurred during scenes at abortion rallies and welfare clinics. This week we'll be covering everything Sunny! If you're willing to try something just a little bit different, add It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia to your Favorites and hop along for what will be a hilarious ride. Check out our next entry: An Always Sunny Clip Show
How many?! Your eyes have not deceived you. FX has ordered an additional 39 episodes of the completely hilarious, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia . This is in addition to the batch of 13 episodes that are currently in production. This shows an insane amount of confidence in the series - which I think is well-deserved - so I'm thrilled to hear that the show will be sticking around for awhile. Source: TV Guide
