Excellent new sitcom alert!
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Already on about series nine in America (or four, to be less OTT), this seems to be another show getting the Seinfeld/Larry Sanders treatment, while British television moves effortlessly into season thirty-nine of My Family, still unaware that it’s not particularly excellent.
This is the story of four thirtysomething meanies and Danny Devito running a bar in Philly… with hilarious results (arf!). The influences are there to see, with shades of Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and at times, even a little bit of the UK version of The Office. The bad news is that you’ll probably need to buy the US DVD if you really want to see it – or splash out on FX.
The good news is that below is a clip to make you forget about how horrible that bad news just felt.
