Four average people own a pub in Philly, they always seem to get themselves in precarious positions through their stupidity and pursuit of the American Dream. They seem to never do anything right through Murphy's law. A lot of witty and dark humor if you are not a fan of that than this is defiantly not for you if so its your dream show with each episode giving you life scenarios dramatized with the most outrageous characters to play them.

Is it brown?'; in season 3 it says 'Make it brown. Make it brown. Make it brown.' each actor chanting the words. See more »

Actually Funny
5 August 2005 | by (North Carolina, US) – See all my reviews

I've been a big fan of FX ever since my wife coerced me into watching an episode of Nip/Tuck. I then got sucked into the various other dramas like Rescue Me, 30 Days, Over There, etc.

I was a bit worried about FX trying to do comedy. I didn't think it would work out at all.

And yet, I was completely wrong. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is a fantastic show. It's about three guys and a girl that own an Irish pub in Philly. You might be thinking that you've heard similar plot lines, but this is completely different.

The show is politically incorrect, vulgar and hilarious. The first episode deals with racism which is a pretty lofty subject to start with, but it handles it with ease.

This is by far one of the best comedies on TV. Well worth checking out.
