The Gang is back and better than ever with stories about curses, ASMR, inflation, and more.
Plot: This year alone, Mac battles with allergies and long-distance dating, Charlie takes on his long-forgotten sisters, Dee fights for rent control and women’s athletics, Frank wrestles for his gun, and Dennis struggles to improve his mental health. At the end of the day, they’re navigating 2023 with 16 years of baggage as a few figures from their past rear their heads.
Review: I love It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. There are few series that have managed to be as hilarious for as long. Many shows have ended their runs after a short time, but Sunnyreturns with a 16th season full of hilarious episodes. After a few seasons of hit-or miss episodes and extended stories, the new season Sunnyreturns with standalone stories that highlight all the quirks of The Gang as well as bringing us the return beloved supporting characters. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia will continue to find new material to spoof, mock, and make fun of while never changing the look at the worst characters that we can’t help but love. This season brings the total number of episodes to 170. This review was based on the first six episodes from this season. There are some standouts in this batch. There are many memorable cameos in this season. From MLB player Chase Utley, to Breaking bad
duo Bryan Cranston, and Aaron Paul. Although famous faces have appeared in the past, It’s Always Sunny does not treat these appearances as stunt cast. These are not stunt roles, but rather fun roles that show actors as good sports for embracing the insanity in this fictional version Philadelphia. There are more surprises in store, but I will not spoil them.The first episode of the season is about inflation and economy. It has a fun surprise about Charlie’s flat that I didn’t see coming. David Hornsby wrote an episode about a curse that has become a classic in this series. Hornsby is back as the homeless, defrocked Priest Cricket in an episode that brings together the entire gang and callsback to characters we haven’t thought of in a long time. Through these episodes, there is a subtle change in the humor. The Gang doesn’t rip on Dee as much as it used to. It is also noticeable that while the Gang is still ignorant and dangerously oblivious to their own actions, they shift from episode to episode as who is dumb and who’s reliable. This classic conceit this series has always done well and handled better this season than they have in a long time.

Cheese-inspired episode about the Gang visiting their childhood arcade, Risk E. Rat’s Pizza. It’s a hilarious episode mocking the famous mouse-themed series and the horror-tinged universe of five Nights at Freddy’s.
The fifth Cranston-Paul episode is a funny spoof of celebrity alcohol brands, but sometimes feels like a commercial promoting the pair’s Dos Hermanos tequila. Bryan Cranston is a comedic actor who has been around for a long time. He and Aaron Paul are highlights this season. This season has no weak entries, but it does seem that Dennis’s angry outbursts are missing at times. The rest of the characters still show their trademark foibles. This is a rare occurrence compared to the previous 15 seasons. However, all three writers are very busy. Charlie Day recently had
debut big and his directorial effort Fool’s Paradise, while Glenn Howerton was critically acclaimed in
Blackberry. Rob McElhenney has received the most attention, thanks to Wrexham AFC’s success. The six half-hours of this season that I have seen all had me laughing out loud at the antics of the Gang. The Simpsons, which has been on the air longer than any other series due to the immortality and quality of animation, has lasted for decades. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is a remarkable show that has kept its core cast intact for less than twenty years with no noticeable drop in quality. It’s always Sunny, like The Simpsons is experiencing a resurgence of creative output in its sixteenth season. This is one of the most consistently hilarious runs of the past half dozen years. Whether you are tuning in for the cameos or because you discovered one of these actors via their other projects, you are in store for a very funny batch of episodes that continues to cement It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
as one of the funniest series of all time.It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres its sixteenth season on June 7th on FXX.8
