Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

"The Gang Solves the Gas Crisis" is THE funniest half hour of anything I've ever watched. From Charlie's Foghorn Leghorn Texas oil man "I said, now I said I'm not leavin' here till I fill you UP!" to Frank's rape van with the double blacked out windows to the finale with Charlie "The Wild Card" cutting the rape van's brake lines while Ray Parker, Jr.'s "Ghostbusters" plays, it's just a hilarious television show.

"The Nightman Cometh," "Dennis and Dee Go on Welfare," and "Hundred Dollar Baby" are all tied for second place.

Many hilarious moments, but I think the hardest I laughed in the whole series was Charlie's wedgie in the class reunion episode.

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

I didn't get into this show until it was in its 5th season, but I caught up quickly thanks to my brother's DVD sets.

I thought the show had a different feel during it's 1st season, as most shows do. But Frank was that missing ingredient that made the show one of the funniest I have ever seen!

Other people have brought up "The Gang Solves the Gas Crisis." That one is way up there for me. It's one I keep going back to. I tend to watch my favorite episodes many, many times. That episode is actually the first I'd ever seen of the show. I was flipping around and caught a rerun of it. The only part I saw was Dee showing Dennis the newspaper about how their dad was going to give all of his money away. Dee, very nonchalantly, said that her original plan to get that money was to eliminate everybody who had a right to it, which included Dennis. Dennis, of course, questions that plan, which would have included him being killed, and Dee keeps trying to change the subject. At the time I just remember thinking that I'd never seen comedy like that in a sitcom. I put the idea of watching it in the back of my head and changed the channel.

Months later my brother shows me "Who Pooped the Bed?" I could not stop laughing at this episode. I not ashamed. I admit it. I enjoy poop jokes. But what really killed me about this episode was Dee's storyline. Her desperate attempts to have a Sex and the City lifestyle all backfire on her. Artemis saying to those guys at the club, "I have a bleached asshole." The Waitress getting plastered at the shoe store and finally Dee's attempt to shoplift a pair of $700 dollar shoes. I just about died when she tried to run in those heels and fell headfirst into a car door. I heard Kaitlin Olson insisted on doing the stunt herself and she looked like she was in pain. You can see the dent she made in the car door clearly as she's writhing on the ground.

After that I started watching at the beginning of Season 5 after getting caught up.

But my favorite episode has to be "The Gang Gives Back" from Season 2. This was an early episode that truly showed just how self-involved these guys are. From Charlie's attempts to get closer to the Waitress using his alcoholism, Dennis vs. Mac and Dee and the horrific ways they tried to cheat at the Pee Wee basketball game to Frank's Asian gambling buddies. The basketball game is probably the funniest scene in the history of this show. Charlie, completely wasted, as the ref, Frank fixing the game, Mac giving his team Red Bull ("Those are the vitamins ripping out the insides of your stomach." ), and the violence. All at a children's basketball game.

I love this show and I hope it never ends.

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Can't remember the name of the episode, but the one where Dee and Charlie steal Frank's meat from the fridge so he sets them up with something they can't figure out and go around trying all sorts of different type of meat to figure out what it was.

The best part of that episode, IMO, is when they are in the Asian butcher shop and talking about getting monkey and wondering if the shop had monkey and the Asian dude behind the counter cocks his head and says, "Hey, we got monkey." Just the way he says it cracks me up!

"Mac and Dennis: Manhunter", where they set up all kinds of traps for Cricket. And Frank tells Charlie and Dee that the meat they ate was human, so they've got the taste for human and they're always hungry, so they keep eating. In the end, it turned out to be wild raccoon and they got a tapeworm which was making them hungry!

My favorite is "Who Pooped the Bed?" because it makes zero sense and because it heavily features Artemis. "Nightman Cometh" is also a classic. I think what makes a good episode is one that is easily quotable.

Dennis: What kind of a person salts another human being? There's no joy in salting someone. Everyone loses.

Charlie: My god, there's not enough salt in the world for her.

Charlie: Hyah! Hyah! Get out of here snail! Hyah! Go snail! Go! Hyah!
Mac: Oh my god, salt the snail! Salt the snail! Go!
Charlie: Oh my god. That was a terrible experience for me by the way.
Dennis: Of course, no one likes salting the snail but she gives you no choice.
Dee: She doesn't leave you with any options.
Charlie: Horrible thing. I'm all worked up now. I feel bad I feel like maybe... I should have some more wine in a can.

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

I saw bits and pieces of a few episodes and really liked what I saw. I hope to check out the entire series when I can.

No it was Criminal Minds. I saw the episode the other night, season 4.

The CM episode takes place in Buffalo, NY. So yeah, guess I was wrong in thinking that Its Always Sunny...was filmed on location, it was obviously filmed in L.A. like you and another poster stated.
