    As usual, the improvised feel of the show adds to its energy.

    Somehow, this ridiculous show manages to entertain us without any semblance of character development or the remotest whiff of a familiar, relatable scenario.

    Not all of the show’s demented comic gambits work, but Sunny gets points for inventiveness, and all things considered, the show is far more consistently entertaining than it was in its first couple of seasons.
  4. Thank goodness for Danny DeVito, whose total commitment to this insanity often makes the unbelievable just believable enough to be funny.
  5. At some point, the gang on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will no longer be able to top itself, no longer do or say things that are even more wrong than the last thing they said or did. It hasn't happened yet.

The unique indie feel and the crazy characters fit perfectly. Although some things do get a bit stupid most of the jokes are just stupid and offensive enough to work. I love the reoccurring guest stars, especially Cricket and Artemis. All together a great comedy with actors born to play their parts, it's crazy and I love it! Expand

Much like The Simpsons each episode is almost virtually self contained and regardless of what happens everything is always back to normal by the following installment. This allows the writers freedom to put the characters in pretty much any situation they wish (up to and including becoming kidnappers and hunting a homeless person) and while this of course means not every gag completely hits the mark the fast pace and excellent performances of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia ensures there are plenty of laughs.

    The best season yet.

Danny Devito 's character really establishes himself in this season and hits rock bottom to be a part of the "gang". The improv feel of the show can really be felt throughout the whole season which adds to the hilarity of it. Expand

    I'm really hoping that this show is improvised, because if the material on this show is actually scripted, wow. Just wow. Just a note: I'm really hoping that this show is improvised, because if the material on this show is actually scripted, wow. Just wow. Just a note: The S word isn't a punchline by itself. I gave it 1 point because I appreciate DeVito. He's funny, just not here. Expand
