The weakest episode of Season 1
20 August 2019 | by yavermbiziSee all my reviews

My overall rating of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"'s Season 1: 6/10

This episode has very few redeeming moments. Too many scenes are just not funny, with only a few exceptions (ex. Mac's interaction with the transgender guy or Dennis repeatedly prioritising carnal lures over helping his friend). Really, no singular plotline is entirely solid on its own, and so the whole things ends up disappointing.
