It's Always Funny In Philadelphia

Because once again, life has taken over and I don't have time to actually write much right now (even though I have tons of Fall TV and Movie previews/reviews posts in the works) and I probably won't have much time to blog until I go and come back from China next week (and I'm not even sure I can blog from there since my site is occasionally blocked and censored from there (and many of you other blogs I read are too, at least the last time I checked. We're CENSORED!), I'm here to do a quick plug for a fellow blogger friend and a plug for one of my favorite TV guilty pleasures.

Sonny over at Silly Pipe Dreams is now working on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (congrats! Though did the name help land the job? ha) and the show has a new blog/website that Sonny and his writing partner are filling up to promote the new season that starts Thursday, September 18th at 10pm on FX.

I don't talk about this show much usually because I catch up with the show later than the American viewings (since Showcase in Canada airs it here but I never seem to know when) but the show is despicable, trashy and totally wrong, which is why it's so DAMN HILARIOUS.

You can watch clips/episodes here (but only if you're in the states).

Seriously, I don't know who is funnier? Kaitlin Olson's Sweet Dee? Danny DeVito's Frank? Charlie Days' Charlie? or Rob McElhenney's Mac (who migh be my favorite but that's really a hard call between the amazing cast/crazy screwballs). Glenn Howerton's Dennis is probably the most straight lead in the show (though I'm talking relatively here) so may have the least funny lines since he must react to all the craziness that surrounds him but even he's a bit of a nutjob, which is probably why I enjoy this show so much.

I think my favorite line from the show is still from Season 1 which gives you a nice overview of the premise: "Dennis, our bar is in South Philly in a scary alley. Might as well call it Rape Bar." - Dee Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson) on why women don't frequent Paddy's Irish Pub (the pub the crazies above run and hang out in).

So next time you're in need of a drink and want to get f#$ked up drunk, go to where everybody doesn't know your name at Paddy's Irish Pub where the show has been renewed for another THREE seasons!

Here's the promo clip for the upcoming season 4 on youtube:

Dee and Charlie alternate as my favorites, but really there's so much to love. That "Rape Bar" line is such a classic.
