It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been on an extraordinary journey over the past decade. Initially starting out as a film idea by struggling actors, it has gone from a cult to a flagship show for FX. It was largely boosted by the fantastic introduction of Danny DeVito as Frank Reynolds in season two, but the premise of five narcissist underachievers who run a dilapidated Irish pub in Philadelphia proved to be both a unique and hilarious set-up. Unlike other sitcoms, the characters are despicable, selfish, appalling and unethical, always resulting in controversial, un-PC and wildly entertaining storylines.
10. “The Gang Gets Analyzed” (Season 8, Episode 5)
By the time we reach season eight, it is quite clear that each member needs some kind of therapy. This fantastic episode explores each character’s psyche as they have one on one sessions with Dee’s therapist, all to determine who should do the dishes after a meal they had. Each session is brilliant in its own right, complete with Mac’s body issues, Charlie banging his head on the wall, Frank opening the floodgates and Dee’s compulsive lying, but it is Dennis who has the best session. He tries to work with the therapist and reveals psychological dossiers he has been keeping on everyone in the gang, with his profile on his sister Dee dating back to second grade. It is an excellent exploration of each character’s extreme flaws, but they do not care what the therapist has to say and instead simply want to know who should do the dishes.http://itsalwayssunny.wikia.com/wiki/The_Gang_Gets_Analyzed Source: Itsalwayssunny.wikia.com
