I’ve been lucky enough to preview tomorrow night’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode — “The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award” — and it belongs in the Paddy’s Pantheon. Not only does the episode provide perfect commentary on Sunny’s seeming complete inability to even sniff a nomination for any sort of television award, but it’s also just really damn funny.
As the credits rolled I found myself thinking it was my favorite episode since “Chardee MacDennis: The Game of Games,” and since I don’t want to give away anything from tomorrow night, let’s instead celebrate one of the greatest Sunny episodes of all time with a brief and necessary tribute. First, a reminder of the levels:
Poor Dee is going to cry for a month straight after Level 3 again, isn’t she?
Why you have to nail down the board:
Before we get started, what is Charlie’s favorite board game again?
Let the festivities begin!
You flinch, you lose.
SHUT. UP. DOG.
See you guys on Thursday when we’ll discuss awards.
