Somehow, someway, this little comedy about a group of lovable assholes who own a bar in Philadelphia will air its 100th episode tonight. Yes, after “The Gang Saves the Day,” we’ll have spent more than 50 hours with the Gang of FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and unlike most shows that reach the 100-episode milestone, there are no signs of it creatively slowing down. I think “The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award” proved that.

In honor of one hundred schemes, one hundred arguments, one hundred instances of emotional trauma, I took a look back at every episode of It’s Always Sunny, to see what kind of lessons can be learned from Dennis, Dee, Mac, Charlie, and Frank. There’s a whole lot of depravity. Sweet, beautiful depravity.
