The Five Best Episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

The Five Best Episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

The iconic FX show is now entering its 13th season.

The iconic FX show is now entering its thirteenth season and has followed a group of friends consisting of Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton), Dee Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito). Commonly referring to themselves as "the gang", the five own a run-down bar in Philadelphia called Paddy's Pub and regularly develop schemes and plans that generally end in disaster. Ahead are the five that went completely off the rails so of course, they're the funniest.

5. The Gang Beats Boggs (Season Ten, Episode One)

In this episode, the gang tries to beat the beer drinking record of Wade Boggs who drank 70 beers on a transatlantic flight and of course, everything goes off the rails. Frank and Dennis attempt to join the mile high club by banging college girls, Charlie needs subtitles for every time he speaks, Dee passes out, and Mac commissions the whole thing. I won’t spoil whether or not someone beats it but let’s just say there’s no way the gang has any chance of remembering that flight.

4. The Gang Gets Analyzed (Season Eight, Episode 5)

As the seasons wear on, you start to become used to the gang’s antics and might even begin to think they’re kind of normal. This episode, however, reminds you of how really messed up each of them are and it's absolutely brilliant. It starts with them going to therapy to see who should do the dishes and ends with Charlie dropping a dead pigeon on the table in front of the therapist to make a point. It's brilliant writing that really delves into the psyches of the gang.

3. The D.E.N.N.I.S System (Season 5, Episode 10)

Dennis might be a sociopath, but he attempts to be helpful by showing Mac, Frank, and Charlie how he’s so successful with the ladies. Hilarity ensues as Mac and Charlie wildly misinterpret the system and end up ruining every date they attempt to go on. Frank forgoes Dennis’s advice entirely and just carries around 100 dollar bills and magnum condoms for his “magnum dong”.

2. Chardee Macdennis: The Game of Games (Season 7, Episode 7)

Combine drinking, complicated board game rules, and Dennis getting his hand stabbed with a dart and you have an epic game that could only happen on It’s Always Sunny. The episode relies entirely on the craziness of its characters and makes them do the most ridiculous things. You need to see this episode to believe its real.

The Nightman Cometh (Season 4, Episode 13)

Hands down one of the best episodes of any TV show ever. Charlie writes a musical about his famed character “the nightman” who molests little boys. It sounds horrible and twisted but with the gang singing the songs and Charlie proposing to his long-time crush at the end, you’ll be in stitches. This was the episode that took It’s Always Sunny from a cult favorite to a staple of sitcom comedy. If you don't watch any other episode, please make sure to at least watch this one.

The Breath of Solitude

A Poem With A Prologue // Polar Viewpoints.



She smacks your parted lips,

sucking the dry,

open cracks to a seal.

Pumping energy into your chest

and sending a continuous shiver

from lung to navel.

You can't help but cough,

as your lungs tighten and twist.

Ringing the frosty sensation out –

slipping through your parted lips.

The same parted lips that

allowed her deliberate fingers

to crawl inside

where she can escape her own dimension

of solitude.

The Breath of Solitude

All I know

is solitude.

We chat

every day

in conversations that circulate

behind the backs

of the present.

Solitude grinds my coffee beans,

as we sit

with our legs crossed,

waiting for dawn

to explode over our opaque landscape.

Solitude runs my bath,


as the Sun crashes

against the diminishing horizon.

But none of this is reality.

I am above

the dimension of reality.

Not theoretically,

but physically.

I am only a tool

to be used in the dimension

of your reality.

Drifting in and out,

twirling through your negative space.

My only purpose

is found through your breath;

but what do I do

when you stop breathing?

I wait for your fingers,

less deliberate than mine,

but filled with that

that I lack.

I cannot see the blood

that sloshes through the veins

in your innocent hands.

The blood that energizes

those fingers

upon which I wait.

But I know

the blood is there.

It isn't

what you do.

It isn't

the way you move.

Simply put,

it is

the way

that you exist.

The sheer fact

that you have a bursting burgundy waterfall


not only through your fingers,

but engulfing all of you

in its rich,



The only waterfall

that I encompass

is the waterfall

that you imagine.

I have no blood;

I have no way to exist.

And so I

wait for your fingers,

less deliberate than mine,

but filled with that

that I lack.

I wait for your fingers

to filter the heat

to a state of regulation,

a state of production,

a state in which I can exist.

The peach fuzz

that sleeps on the bridge of your nose

begins to rise

when your fingers initiate the flame.

The temperature reacts,

as would my heartbeat,

if I had a bursting burgundy waterfall,

or some type of life source

inhabiting my chest cavity.

As the heat

starts to melt

my metaphorical skin,

I become reality.

I don't have a face to smile,

or eyes to produce tears.

But I have thoughts.

I have words to say,

I have feelings to express.

I still can only drift,

in and out,

twirling through your negative space,

but now spiraling

into your positive space,

as well.
