A return to great comedy
22 August 2019 | by yavermbiziSee all my reviews

My overall rating of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"'s Season 2: 5/10

While the previous two episodes in this season have been fairly bad and disheartening, this one really seems like a return to form, with incredibly hilarious and well-acted characters, a plot that goes from strength to strength and a controversial idea being cleverly lampooned. The performances are brilliant, the writing is excellent, and while the Charlie, Mac and Frank's plotline pales a bit in comparison to that of Dennis and Dee, it still very much has its momemnts.
