Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 10 season finale: “Mac Finds His Pride”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 10 season finale, Mac presented us with a performance that was profound and moving.  While I’m not sure his dad really got it, he sure did captivate the rest of the audience.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “Mac Finds His Pride,” Frank’s mission is to get Mac to dance on the Paddy’s Pub float in the pride parade, but Mac is not too sure he wants to participate, as he starts to realize that he would rather share the truth with his father instead.  Only we know that Mac’s dad is not the friendliest guy in the world.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 10 season finale are:

5

“What year is it in your head?”

In the beginning of the episode, Frank is extremely motivated to play his part and get Mac to perform on the Paddy’s Pub float in the pride parade.  Mac is not really on board with this however; as he is still not sure on his own identity as a gay man.  Frank tries to make Mac comfortable, but fails miserably as he first takes him to some kind of S&M club and then tries out “Pookie’s,” which is a club for drag queens.  Mac doesn’t think he quite fits in at either place and hilariously asks Frank what year he thinks it is in his head, as Frank is not really sure where to take Mac next to find his pride.  I guess it’s the thought that counts?

4

“So the only thing that’s missing is Mac…”

While the episode is mostly centered on Mac and Frank, we do get to briefly see Dee and Charlie, who are working very hard on their Paddy’s Pub float, which is actually out of this world and even features a bar on top.  Nice work guys!  We start to realize that the gang may have an ulterior motive, as they admit to wanting to attract some more customers to the bar and Mac could be the key, but Frank is still not able to follow through with his one and only job.

3

“There’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you…”

After Frank’s failed attempts to help Mac find his identity, Mac comes to the conclusion that he wants to share everything with his father.  Mac’s father, Luther, is always hilarious, as he has really mastered the cold-blooded killer vibe.  When Mac asks him how he is doing, he calmly talks about his problems with his cell mate by explaining, “I cut out his tongue with a rusty pair of pliers and fed it to the maggots.”  Mac is not really sure what to say to this and just simply replies with, “Cool.”  I’m not sure I would know how to react either.  After Mac tries to start telling his dad about his complicated dream about being gay, Luther thinks that Mac has gotten a girl pregnant and is thrilled to be a grandfather.  Only it better be a son or else Mac will need to start over.  Mac is always seeking his father’s approval and starts to think that perhaps he does need to get a girl pregnant, but Frank tries to keep him on track.  After all, he doesn’t want him to “go back in the closet.”

2

“He looks like a monster.”

After Frank explains that he thinks Mac may be going “back in the closet,” Dee and Charlie need to find a replacement for him on the float.  Cricket shows up dressed in some kind of biker leather combo that shows off his many scars, but I’m not sure this will attract the right clientele, as Charlie hilariously comments, “He looks like a monster.”  Well at least he is willing to participate for the loose change in Dee’s pocket.

1

“I get it.”

Frank arranges for Mac to put on a performance for his father and the other inmates, realizing that Mac needs to finally tell his dad the truth.  Mac actually brings his dream to life and puts on a beautiful and heart wrenching dance performance in the rain with his female partner, who literally came out of nowhere.  Either way, she was extremely talented.  While Mac’s father gets up and leaves, all of the other inmates are mesmerized by Mac’s movements and Frank finally understands when he says, “I get it.”  It looks like Mac has finally found his identity and pride while showcasing his incredible dance skills as well.  I guess that’s the end of the new season, but I’m hoping for the gang to return soon, especially since we know that the series has been renewed through Season 14.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 9: “The Gang Wins the Big Game”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 9, the cliffhanger from last week was finally resolved, as we got to find out what happened with the rest of the gang when they attended last year’s Super Bowl.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “The Gang Wins the Big Game,” Mac thinks that everyone should take it easy at the game, but he quickly starts to realize that they may need a few superstitions to help out the Eagles after all.  Meanwhile, we finally get to learn if Charlie made it back into the trap in time.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 9 are:

5

“Every single thing we do turns to shit.”

After it is revealed that Cricket is the one who stole Charlie’s Green Man suit, the gang decides against turning around to go get Charlie.  After all, they have a game to get to.  Only different obstacles are thrown their way as well.  Dee clearly has some form of pink eye developing even though she won’t admit it, Ben’s jean shorts get grease on them, and the bus is no longer an option.  Mac begins to panic, but a plane actually gets them to the game safely.  Mac thinks that everyone should just stay in the box at the game, worried about the rest of the gang causing a commotion, but not everyone is on board with this.

4

“I’m in too deep.”

Mac is super excited that Rex was able to make the game, who has been a recurring character on It’s Always Sunny, infamous for his abs of steel.  Rex has been quite busy selling the Invigaron Berries, which is a pyramid scheme Dee got involved with in the episode, “Mac and Dennis Buy a Timeshare.”  Mac keeps suggesting that Rex take his shirt off for obvious reasons, but Rex seems shy about this, explaining that it is too cold.  Later on, Rex reveals that he has lost his abs of steel and now has a rather large gut because he has been eating way too many of the berries.  Seriously stay away from those pyramid schemes.

3

“Oh my God…how did I move all the way to Minnesota and I’m still waiting on you people?”

Our favorite waiter from Guigino’s is back, as he crosses paths with the gang when he is assigned to their box at the Super Bowl.  Fans will remember that the waiter made a comment to Dee about previously waiting on them at the Super Bowl during the episode, “The Gang Beats Boggs:  Ladies Reboot.”  Of course the gang does not remember the waiter and he is done trying at this point.  Frank hilariously ties his shoelaces together, causing him to fall, throwing it back to one of my all time favorite episodes, “The Gang Dines Out.”  It’s always nice to see the waiter and I’m wondering if we will finally get to know his real name one of these days.

2

“We can’t leave this bathroom!”

Mac is clearly very nervous about the Eagles wining and the Waitress doesn’t help matters by constantly cheering for Tom Brady.  After Dee’s pink eye towel gets magically brought out to Brady, Mac realizes that he has stumbled upon something even more powerful.  Frank has revealed that he has a kidney stone and has to constantly pee as a result.  A light bulb goes off in Mac’s head when he says, “Every time Frank goes to the bathroom, the Eagles score.”  Frank gets motivated and Mac realizes that they cannot leave this bathroom because they owe it to their team.  Will this superstition be enough to win the game?

1

“I got one thing left to do.”

The game is extremely close and coming to the end and Frank is all out of pee.  Mac suddenly realizes that he needs to check in with Charlie to ensure that he has completed his “color rituals.”  Charlie explains, “I got one thing left to do” and courageously heads back to his bear trap with perfect timing, as the Eagles win the Super Bowl.  The gang is extremely excited and Charlie begins to laugh victoriously and then starts hysterically crying when the pain begins to set back in.  It was all worth it; however, as the gang celebrates their team winning the Super Bowl.  Go team!  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 7: “The Gang Does a Clip Show”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 7, I realized that doing a clip show doesn’t necessarily mean you are giving in to “lazy writing.”  After all, who knew that doing a clip show could potentially alter reality?  It’s Always Sunny does a clip show brilliantly, bringing us back to some of our favorite laugh out loud moments, while still being original about the premise.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Gang Does a Clip Show,” the gang is bored when they have to wait approximately 30 minutes for their phones to do a system update, which causes them to reminisce about some of the good old days.  As they start to bring us back to some of our favorite moments on the show, they realize that they are also distorting some memories and they run the risk of altering reality.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 7 are:

5

“Why was that memory in a different language?”

As the gang begins to bring us back to some of their favorite memories, Charlie takes a stab at it and brings up one of my favorite episodes of all time:  “The Nightman Cometh.”  Only as he takes us back there, he is remembering everything in another language, which confuses the rest of the gang.  The gang tells Charlie that he never spoke Chinese, but Charlie is convinced that he did, reminding us about the episode:  “Flowers for Charlie,” when he is the subject of an experiment and believes in his mind that he has become smart overnight.  This leads to the gang suggesting that they remember times where somebody didn’t know what was happening, which leads to some hilarious moments where characters literally ask, “What is happening?”  I absolutely loved the transition here.

4

“You can’t beat physical comedy memories.”

Dee is excited to bring up some of her favorite memories and tries to recreate some of her favorite characters that she liked to do.  Only the gang has no idea what she is talking about and asks, “What is that?  What are you doing?  Are you just doing a bad accent?”  When Dee tries to remind them about some of the characters, they hilariously ask, “You’ve created characters?”  Poor Dee.  She puts her best effort forward to bring back Crazy Patty, but she ends up falling and hurting herself, which leads to the gang deciding to remember all the times that Dee got hurt, which gives us some more laugh out loud moments from the earlier seasons.

3

“Let’s remember all the classic times.”

Some of my absolute favorite moments on the show come up during the “classic times,” as we get to witness Charlie hilariously ask Santa all over again if he “f*cked his mom.”  Classic Charlie.  We also get to witness “Wild Card bitches,” the high school reunion dance number, and Dennis explaining to Mac “because of the implication,” which is one of my all time favorite laugh out loud moments from “The Gang Buys a Boat.”  Seriously check that episode out now if you haven’t yet.

2

“That was one of the best memories of all time.”

The gang hilariously recreates a moment from Seinfeld and is actually pretty spot on with their impression of it.  Only they start to think that it is one of their own memories.  Dennis tells them that it wasn’t them and points out that it took place during the 90’s and asks them who all those people were laughing in the background.  The gang is still not entirely sure about this until Dennis says, “You guys are remembering an episode of Seinfeld and they realize that “memories are tricky.”

1

“Now you’re infecting my memory with your memory.”

After Dennis brings up the time that he left Paddy’s Pub, he gets agitated when the memory starts changing, as everyone thinks that they turned off the lights to the bar and then Frank hilariously points out that he doesn’t even remember Dennis leaving.  Dennis tells them that they are infecting his memory with their own memories and that distorting facts can change history, which leads to a discussion about potentially altering reality.  In this new reality, Frank has hair and Charlie has a kid with the waitress, as he brings us into this new reality by looking in on himself like the Ghost of Christmas Past, which is funny on its own.  At the end of the episode, the phones are updated and it seems like we are back to normal, only Charlie looks through the door of the bar one last time, suggesting that perhaps we are not.  Either way, I was initially disappointed to see that they were going to do a clip show until the episode actually branched out into something funny on its own, reminding us why we all love this series so much.  Stay tuned!
