Following on from a stellar fourth season It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia's remains at its absolute best throughout this fifth season, remaining laugh out loud funny and further cementing its place amongst my favourite comedy series of all time.
It's Always Sunny is still very much It's Always Sunny, which should be good news to its many fans, especially those who may not long, as I do, for just a bit more subtlety now and then. But, hey, it's OK. DeVito and the rest are totally committed to everything they do, no matter how absurd, and more often than not, they manage to sell it.
Fantastic season with tons of great moments. The writers somehow keep coming up with hilarious new ideas and great ways of revisiting old gags, and that is remarkable. Way WAY funnier than most of the shows on television, even the "critically acclaimed" ones.
Always Sunny really stepped their game up this season and this is the first season of the show where I like every episode with the highlight being the DENNIS System which is probably my favorite episode so far.
