Out of the six episodes to air so far, only the third episode "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award" was the only good episode. Here's to hoping for a strong finish! Full Review »

There are a lot of shows and movies and even musicians out there who engage in raunchy, edgy, controversial behavior for the sake of producing shock value. I don't feel that that is not the case here. Nope. These guys (and gal) don't seem to be interested in offending people. They don't come across as if they revel in being politically incorrect. No. They just...are. They are a group of people who genuinely go against the grain and sincerely speak their mind. And since they are creative and talented on top of that...we have an awesome TV show. Possibly my favorite aspect of Always Sunny is the way that a lot of it's funniest moments are in context. It's not all one-liners and silly dances. Instead you may often find yourself rolling on the floor in laughter because a certain something happened amid an entire set of other somethings and you suddenly realize how ridiculous the whole situation is. At times none of the characters are really even doing anything and I find myself cracking up at the mere thought of what kind of human beings they are. When Country Mac falls off of his bike in season 9, episode 5 I just about slipped into a hilarity induced coma. Maybe the funniest thing on television. And also...very smart. Full Review »

I still love this show, and all the characters, however, i feel like this season is going downhill a little bit. Some of the jokes are not as funny and 'real' as previous seasons, as it feels quite forced and overly done, specially the fact that they experimented with a lot of stuffs with the action and special effects that i personally think it has lost its personality that was meant to be sort of more 'grounded'. I also felt like the creativity is fading, mainly because of the humors taken has already been done in the past seasons, and they are not as funny as their original episodes. I still found many humorous parts though, and still find some of them enjoyable to watch. I just felt like it could have done better. Full Review »
