It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Review: "Charlie Kelly: King of the Rats"

at .

I always feel like Always Sunny isn't just entertaining, it's educational.  Last season, I learned the life-changing concept of wine-in-a-can.  This season's life lesson? 

The ultimate snack to sneak into a movie theater: spaghetti.  You know, depending on their spaghetti policy.

Frank's Birthday Picture

Oh, Charlie.  This week's episode, "Charlie Kelly: King of the Rats" definitely belonged to you in both title and jokes.  Whether it was your misunderstanding of a spa getaway, confusion over 3D, or your book of dreams, you had us laughing.

Meanwhile, the rest of the gang focused on trying to be a little less cynical and help each other out.   There were definitely some sweet moments in there, like the gang trying to recreate impossible things from Charlie's dream book, Mac buying Dennis a shirt, or Dee trying to take Charlie to the spa(ghetti). 

But overall, like everything else in life, this self group of a**holes managed to still screw things up.  In fact, by the end the gang returned to their cynical ways when they learned it was actually Frank's birthday.

All the poor guy wanted was a Luau birthday party with his favorite friends from under the bridge with a decently negotiated price on a pig.  Yet when the gang finally learned it was his birthday?  Not even a "happy birthday."

For some reason, I always kind of want these guys to eventually grow up.  But then I realize, a group of five nice altruistic people wouldn't have me laughing weekly.  This formula is just too good.  And besides, at least they were nice to our poor rat beater.

We're going to end this rambling attempt at a review and leave you with some of our favorite Always Sunny quotes and your chance to sound off in the comments:

Dennis: We also have the bird with teeth.
Charlie: Wow, okay. And I'm assuming the teeth are fake, yes?
Dennis: Yes. Well they're not really human teeth if that's what you're asking
Charlie: No, I mean did you discover a bird with teeth in this fashion?
Dennis: That does not exist in nature.
Charlie: Okay, I'm not sure, but either way, good glue work. | permalink
Charlie: what is your spaghetti policy?
Dee: Are you hearing this? He doesn't belong in a place like this. | permalink
Charlie: What's 3D even stand for?
Dee: Third dimension.
Charlie: What dimension are we in? | permalink
Mac: This brings me no joy at all. I feel nothing. I feel like you stole money from me and bought a shirt.
Dennis: With your money. That is what happened. | permalink
