NFT: its always sunny in philadelphia

Sonic Youth : 9/6/2017 10:19 am
I have no idea why I didn't get into this show earlier, but around a year ago I decided to binge watch the series (well, from season 2 on) and it's become easily my #1B comedy to Seinfeld (ultimate #1A).

Yet this show has never received any awards or recognition outside of its rabid cult following (not that they seem to care).

With over a year layoff until the new season, was wondering if there are any BBI IASIP fans, who your favorite chracter is, who your favorite character combo/team is, and your favorite episodes or moments.

Oh well, at least Bojack Horseman comes back in two days, and the NFL tomorrow.
One of my favorite comedies ever

Dennis has really grown into my favorite character. Absolutely hilarious as they've let him get crazier and crazier. Obviously Charlie is great too. They all are great characters.

Too many great episodes to name. But speaking of the show never getting any awards recognition, "The Gang Desperately Tries to Win an Award" is a great episode where they respond to that.
Love the show

really all great characters, Dennis is awesome, but Mac went through so many changes physically and character wise he showed some different range.

Other than Frank who obviously had solidified his career before the show, Charlie has had the most success outside the show.

I think he's kind of one-dimensional though.
I gotta say Charlie is my fav

I think my favorite combo is Charlie and Mac (Mac and Charlie Die Pt 1), but Charlie and Dee is a very underrated combo.

Frank and Charlie is an honorable mention beause they are just so goddamn weird together.

episodes are Wade Boggs and Mac and Charlie die, and the one where they siphon gas.
Great, great show

Isn't Dennis leaving the show?
Dennis has a new show  
Metnut : 9/6/2017 10:43 am : link
coming on NBC (AP Bio) that looks like it could be funny.

I think he's still in the air to come back to Sunny, but Sunny isn't scheduled to come back for a while and Charlie Day thinks that Glenn/Dennis will come back at least for part of the new season (and that's in an interview done over the summer).
According to most recent news  
Sonic Youth : 9/6/2017 10:45 am : link
Dennis said he'd be back, but the show is taking a hiatus of a year+.

If Dennis (or any of the gang) doesn't come back, they should scrap the season. It's not Sunny without them all, even Dee.
They gave dennis

an out the way they ended the last season, but he'll be back
My favorite character is Frank

Best episode is Being Frank, all shot from a 1st person POV as Frank, its absolutely hilarious.

I 2nd the Wade Boggs episode on the plane. F'ing hilarious. A couple of other gems:

- Frank puts bacon bits in his GF's hair so it rains bacon on him when they bang.

- Frank invents a gun that fires liquor into your mouth and they make an commercial about it.
Mac and Dennis move to the suburbs

The last few season have been amazing. There are so many good episode. One that jumps to mind is Flipdelphia. I miss green man. The one where they trick Dee into thinking she is funny was classic. The gas shortage. The Wade Boggs one was great.
I hope this doesn't miller the thread  
robbieballs2003 : 9/6/2017 12:05 pm : link
But The Mick is hysterical. And for those that watched The League which was also on FX there is a show called I'm Sorry. I think it is on TruTV maybe. It stars the swimming instructor for baby Jeffrey who Rafi was banging. Rafi is in the show too but has a small role. I have only seen a few episodes but it has me laughing pretty good.

The Mick ended up being pretty funny. I'm glad it's coming back. Mickey's on again off again boyfriend guy is a great character.

The first season  
halfback20 : 9/6/2017 12:47 pm : link
Has some great episodes too.

I can't begin to list all my favorites. There are too many. By far my favorite comedy.
Amazing show.  
RicFlair : 9/6/2017 12:52 pm : link
Dennis Reynolds is a golden God.

Pay tribute.
It is odd that the show hasn't received much  
eclipz928 : 9/6/2017 1:59 pm : link
recognition - i don't think it's even been nominated. But it's easily a top 5 all time comedy series for me.

Disagree - this past season I loved the water park episode and the episode making fun of shows that use a laugh track.

I don't think it was the most recent season but the health inspector episode was great too.

Didn't mean that in an aggressive way against you - just that I don't agree with the premise that they jumped the shark

It's an all time great
The most recent season was good  
stockton : 9/6/2017 7:40 pm : link
I thought PTSDee was the best episode of the season but Hero or Hate Crime, Waterpark, and Making Dennis Reynolds a murderer were all excellent episodes.

The other episodes were ok but nothing super great imo.
