    The thing that makes this show so hilarious, to me at least, is that it's honest. 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.

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. Expand

    IASIP is a brilliant show and it always will be, the first episode of season 9 was a hilarious kick off to the start of the season, I can only imagine the Hijinks' that are in store for the group. The jokes on dee.

    Best show on TV! I love how you never know what the gang will do next. Charlie's songs about the pub and Frank inexplicably being stuck in the coil are the sort of delightful treats that keep me counting down the days until the next episode. Best show on TV!!

    I only just got the DVDs to this show because I hadn't watched a comedy series in a long time. It is an amazing achievement in sheer, hard-hitting, perverse hilarity. It has an infinite number of amazing qualities, but the its best quality is its honesty. It does not pander to the masses (read CBS audience) or sink into melodrama and touching moments; rather, it delivers laughters aplentyI only just got the DVDs to this show because I hadn't watched a comedy series in a long time.

    Sunny gets its ninth season off to a strong start with a typically perverse episode.
