It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of the longest-running sitcoms of all time so here are the top episodes according to IMDb voters.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of the longest-running sitcoms of all time. The show is currently in its fourteenth season with no signs of stopping any time soon. It’s come a long way since it began and yet the concept stays the same.
We get to watch our favorite gang of dysfunctional characters do terrible things and be awful people every day. We’re taking a look back at the top ten best episodes of Always Sunny according to IMDb.
CharDee MacDennis: The Game Of Games
The gang decides to invent their own high-stakes board game and it’s completely ridiculous and hardly makes any sense. But it does involve the team-up of Charlie and Dee versus Mac and Dennis.
The game became incredibly popular with reproductions even being sold in real life to diehard fans of the series. It features a timer, three levels, and lots of drinking. The game would be visited later on in the series too as a new favorite past time.
The Gang Tries Desperately To Win An Award
After the gang gets snubbed yet again for “Philadelphia’s Best Bar” Award they go to extreme lengths to figure out what they should do to win next year.
The episode is particularly humorous because it serves as a metaphor for the series never winning, or even being nominated for, an Emmy Award despite being on the air longer than most other comedies. It also includes a musical number and some of the best in-jokes and meta-references in the series.
Sweet Dee’s Dating A R*Tarded Person
The title of this episode is certainly not politically correct, nor should it have probably been used at the time, but it remains a standout episode of Always Sunny. The main reason people still love this episode so much is due to how it highlights the best part of the show.
These are truly awful people. Everyone gets to be in their terrible glory as they attempt to find out if Dee’s new rapper boyfriend has a mental illness or not. Dee is as oblivious as ever to everything.
The D.E.N.N.I.S. System
When you look at the most-quoted episodes of Always Sunny, “The D.E.N.N.I.S. System” will surely rank near the top. Many people love this episode due to how crazy it is Dennis would think his system is an acceptable way to talk to women.
There is also the entire running joke through the series and in the fandom that Dennis may be a serial killer and his system lends a lot of evidence to that. Again, one of the best parts of the comedy is laughing at the gang and how ridiculous they are.
Time’s Up For The Gang
Surprisingly for a show of this nature, they always seem to handle super-sensitive topics well. The show has tackled an array of political topics and buzzwords from racism to abortion so it was not at all shocking when they did an episode on the Times Up movement.
As usual, the gang handles a sexual harassment seminar in the only terrible ways they know how to. Dee is actually the person who takes the entire thing the least seriously. The episode does a great job of getting in some real criticism at the toxic culture of Hollywood and sexism while still being hilarious.
