I’m probably guilty of over-hyping “The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award” but it is definitely one of my all-time favorite It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia episodes. Opinions will vary between good and great but for me it hit a sweet spot of meta commentary on the show’s own lack of recognition and just really solid all around comedy. Everything about The Gang attempting to replicate (and fail miserably at) what’s successful at mainstream popular bars couldn’t have done it for me more.

Let’s jump right into the Sunniest moments.

The Gang gets meta from the onset.
