Tell Me I’m Good: The Sunniest Moments From An Introspective ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’

By: 11.09.12  •  108 Comments

Several of you guys have been pointing out that there’s a kinda/sorta farewell tour feel to the eighth season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I’ve seen where you’re coming from but haven’t actually felt it until this past episode, when the gang further explored their idiosyncrasies with Dee’s therapist (as portrayed by the always excellent Kerri Kenney of Reno 911! fame).

That doesn’t mean “Gets Analyzed” wasn’t still highly enjoyable. When Sunny goes to its playbook and draws up a situation where the gang interacts with a sane third party authority figure it’s never not good times. The running theme of needing/using said person while constantly undermining and belittling their professional skills never fails TO delight me. Same goes for Dennis playing the Ivy League card. I can’t wait to meet someone who went to La Salle so I can tell them it sounds like a pasta dish.

Until then though, the Sunniest moments…

Conflict Resolution Priorities

The Fat Mac Mystery Begins To Unravel

I know what you’re thinking: That’s almost impossible. But remember: Through god all things are possible. Jot that down.

Also jot down “Size Pills,” the real culprit behind the disappearance of our beloved builder of mass. Mac’s pen issues unrelated.

Between oral fixations, “more bigger,” a slight to female doctors, and misplaced god talk I have to deem Mac’s session the best session, although an argument can certainly be made for Charlie’s…
