The darker it gets the better it gets. I am blatantly in love with Charlie. I sang the Nightman to my students today. Possibly unprofessional. Bit ho curs wi wer hufin glu (Charlie fact).

I love how Charlie can't read or understand simple logic but he can still write and direct a (sort of) coherent musical in a matter of hours.

WATCH OUT, GEORGE, HE'S GOT A SCREWDRIVER!
I'm enjoying working through it at a gentle pace - now on series 4. Huffing glue and eating catfood - makes sense to me!

I've seen one or two shows ages ago, thought it was great. Where can I see it now - is it on netflix or something?

I was considering having a marathon of series 1-8 but that would be the third time I have seen it and I find series 9 on US Netflix. And its the weekend. Nearly happy here.

what, fucking what?
Such a good show, some great politics just under the surface too.

Doesn't seem to get much media love, possibly cos middlebrow twats who swing that write it off as puerile.

Danny De Vito is a total legend, you can tell he just loves doing the show.

This went well.

It's not exactly an easy subject to write about. The show is a lot darker and complicated than fuzzy CBS sitcoms with a laugh track and a clear cut moral lesson everyone learns.

Sweet Dee gets audited was amazing for the political subtext. Charlie and Mac argue with each other over what the size of a crucifix in the bar should be. Meanwhile, when they are distracted with that Frank and Dennis work out financial scams.

Its Always Sunny...... is one of the best comedy shows made ever since Seinfeld. Every episode is hilarious, especially the episodes "Charlie wants an Abortion" and "Charlie Goes America All Over Everyone's ***".

I've just finished the 8th season. After getting a bit disillusioned with some of it in 6 and 7 (possibly through watching it all in fairly quick succession) I think it hit a purple patch from 8-4 - 8-10. It's had some real laugh-out-loud moments again.

In a popularity poll of the characters, I'm sure Charlie would win the most votes but it's Dee for me. I think shes hilarious. I wish Frank was a bit-part character and not in the gang though. If he turned up twice a series, i'd love him. As it is, I don't think he fits.

eta - Particularly pleased to see Aristotle getting put in his place.

Ah the greasy sheen of a McPoyle. I got one of my students a Charlie T shirt (it says Charlie Dey - Local Businessman and Cat Enthusiast) and he practically cried with delight.

Article on this. Mentions 'the implication' as an example, which i think is an excellent choice rather than something more overt.

Love it. Think I've reached the start of S3 now on Netflix.

The episode titles alone go further than most sitcoms would.

I'm watching Ser 9 Ep1. It's fantastic. I'm so pleased the current stuff is really cutting it. I think it might be a 20 minute dig at Sarah Silverman but I'm not sure!

e2a Oh my god - the ending!

Love this show but good god it gets really dark and twisted sometimes (D.E.N.N.I.S system anyone?). I feel so sorry for Charlie, I think he's the only redeemable character if only he could be removed from the group and become friends with a bunch of musical types!
