The Gang gets Freudian as they step into the therapist's office to work through their mountain of issues, but when Dennis thinks he has everyone figured out, the shrink turns the tables on him and exposes the insanity in his unique brand of pop psychology.

  • Tim Goodman

    Laden with laugh-out-loud moments. ... Just as "Curb Your Enthusiasm" so boldly and brilliantly attacks taboo subjects, so does "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," though the humor is spread from one clueless, self-centered ass to four, clueless, self-centered slackers. [4 Aug 2005]

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert P. Laurence

    It's not your father's "Cheers." [3 Aug 2005]

    San Diego Union-Tribune Full Review
  • Charlie McCollum

    An underlying warmth and a certain charm to the characters mitigate some of the childish jokes and give the series real appeal. [5 Aug 2005]

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Paul Brownfield

    A small-scale gem. [3 Aug 2005]

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Hilarious. [4 Aug 2005]

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    The laughs, as they should, come fast and hard from the characters, somehow likable in their social ineptitude. But if you can't see the situations - irreverent barely begins to describe them - as absurd, you might not have a lot of fun. [4 Aug 2005]

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Invariably clever and occasionally a laugh-out-loud riot. [1 Aug 2005]

    Variety Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    The castmates aren't polished performers, but they know how to work a joke fast and move on. [4 Aug 2005]

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Mike Lechevallier

    In its eighth season, It's Always Sunny doesn't try very many new things, but the writers are smart enough to know not to mess with a successful formula, and the series carries itself with an air of aplomb that many comedies rarely come close to exhibiting.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    What makes it palatable is that it is often laugh-out-loud hilarious. If Seinfeld broke down a few barriers when it came to subject matter in a sitcom, Philadelphia gleefully smashes right through them. [3 Aug 2005]

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Sid Smith

    Funny, refreshing and bold. [4 Aug 2005]

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Scott D. Pierce

    Has moments of brilliance. [11 Aug 2005]

    Deseret News Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Lacks the hard, uncomfortable edges of [FX's also premiering] "Starved," but it's clear this show wants and intends to do a little damage, too. [4 Aug 2005]

    Newsday Full Review
  • Ann Gerhart

    [Has an] intimate, ensemble feel, without grandstanding or fussiness or mugginess. It keeps the four feeling like good company for a half-hour. [4 Aug 2005]

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    Funny - barely - in an uncomfortable, theatrical way, some moments feel like performance art or improv exercises, albeit with nice title sequences. [14 Aug 2005]

    Denver Post Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Ridiculous, and somewhat predictable. [4 Aug 2005]

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    "It's Always Sunny" peddles immaturity and discomfort with remarkable wit in a few instances. [4 Aug 2005]

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Gillian Flynn

    It is smug enough to think it's breaking ground, but not smart enough to know it isn't.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    In general, "Philadelphia" pulls back just short of being really tasteless, which seems to miss the point. [4 Aug 2005]

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    "Sunny" simply isn't funny enough often enough to justify its rather labored envelope-pushing. [4 Aug 2005]

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    It's more like Seinfeld reconceived for the slacker sensibility of a director like Kevin Smith or Richard Linklater. And that's what's wrong with the show: It's hard to shake the feeling that it's just someone's project.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    The writing is not witty enough to carry the material, which is not even very original.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Bianculli

    Just because you can put something on TV doesn't mean you should. [3 Aug 2005]
