Product Description

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia centres around the lives of four egocentric friends, whose warped views and precarious judgement often lead to trouble. Whether it’s underage drinking, homophobia or smokers’ rights, no subject is off limits for the hilariously warped gang at Paddy’s Pub. The staff of this neighbourhood bar takes dysfunction and political incorrectness to wickedly hilarious extremes in this refreshingly raw and edgy comedy.

Knock one back with Mac, Charlie, Dennis and his sister Dee, as their twisted and self-obsessed worldviews lead to awkward and outrageous misadventures, from sleeping with each other’s mums to smuggling heroin into prison--the hard way. Welcome to Paddy’s, where you'll meet the most vain, dishonest, self-obsessed gang of friends since Seinfeld… bottoms up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best show ever. 17 May 2011
Format:DVD
Finally this is being released on Region 2 DVDs! This is by far the best comedy series that is running at the moment. It's been running for 6 seasons, and season 7 premieres in the US in September.

For those of you who don't know anything about the show, it's about 3 guys who own a bar. Charlie, the illiterate, dyslexic, and utterly hilarious janitor. Dennis, the "playboy" kind of guy. And Mac, the dude who sees himself as totally badass, but when he faces a potentially dangerous situation he pussies out. Another main character is Deandra (also known as Sweet Dee) She doesn't own the bar, she just works there, and the guys often tend to rip on her.

This first season is by no means the best, and as I've said to several of my mates when they started to watch the show; use the first season to get to know the characters. There are several great episodes, and some brilliant one-liners. Especially Charlie's gem "I will smash your face into a, into a jelly!!".. Anyway, from season 2 onwards, Danny DeVito joins the cast as Dennis and Dee's father, and he is outstanding!

Do yourselves a favour and watch this show. Be patient, and once you get hooked, you will be laughing your brains out! Funniest show there is. 9.5/10 on IMDb speaks for itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angry, dangerous and downright hilarious 29 May 2011
Format:DVD
Unless you spend a lot of time watching semi-obscure cable channels or take an active interest in US comedy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia could easily have passed you by. If, however, you're a fan of the similarly neglected likes of Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Eastbound and Down and Curb Your Enthusiasm, Always Sunny could well be your new favourite show.

It follows the misadventures of group of amoral, directionless bar owning friends in blue collar Philly; three dudes: Dennis, Mac and Charlie, (former semi-struggling actors Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day, who also write the show) and their female compatriot `Sweet' Dee, (Kaitlin Olson, who played Cheryl's sister Becky in Curb). From season two they are joined by Dennis and Dee's estranged father Frank, played with gusto by the magnificent Danny Devito.

Episodes traditionally focus on a pop culture or political phenomenon - from abortion to wrestling, Extreme Home Makeover to the global financial crisis; and the gang's attempts to exploit said phenomenon for their own personal gain. The format is well illustrated by the Season Four episode `The Nightman Cometh' , where Charlie announces he has written a musical.

Charlie: I wrote a musical. It's pretty damn good, OK? I wanna put it on.
Mac: Right, what's your angle?
Charlie: I don't have one.
Dee: Yeah, whose--whose face are we shoving this musical in?
Charlie: You don't shove a musical in someone's face. What are you talking about?
Mac: Right, but who versus? Who are we doing it versus?

Other reviews of the show on Amazon make it sound pretty stupid and offensive. I would agree that the show is not for the easily offended, and when it is stupid it is gleefully, unashamedly stupid.

Mature themes herein, but a superb show and a brilliant cast.

There are few better adult comedies anywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real tasty treat 30 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
I've followed Sunny since the second season was airing back in 2006, and although it is easily my favorite on television, I think the real testament to it's quality is just how many people I know (here in the UK where it is not easy to see) who have also become hooked through just word of mouth; I have not met single person yet who didn't fall in love with the antics of The Gang. I don't really have any intelligent insight to the comedy but I would say it's a dark, character-based comedy with a lot of heart (created, written and directed by the main cast, with little to no studio interference). I definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of buying and also to everyone who isn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliantly funny shows 14 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
I second the other 5 star reviews - this show is simply funny as hell, and I'm up to series 4.
It's a gem that I'd never heard of until I searched the all-knowing imdb website (internet movie database)
for the top comedy shows of all time. With 1000s of votes, this came second only to Arrested Development which I also recommend.

Unlike many comedy sitcoms including Arrested Development, this show is aimed at adults as opposed to families, with a delightfully devious streak running right through it that allows the situations to push out into territories other shows fear to tread.
When I started watching I thought 'my God this is the show I've been waiting my life for!' I kid you not!

This is a fantastic comedy series, instantly likeable and watchable. Although it never ventures into emotional or dramatic territories, it somehow makes me incredible happy watching it and proud to be a fan of the show, I think purely because most of the cast write it and play a huge part in the production of the show, which gives the impression that they have an absolute blast making the show and creates a near perfect comedy show. Although this season is only 7 episodes - they are all great episodes - but the show seems to really take off during season 2 and onwards but for some strange reason only season 1 is available at this time of writing, I just hope further seasons will be available sometime soon!
