Sometime in February, I discovered this series. And since the first nine seasons were available through my Amazon Prime account, I could watch them anytime on my Amazon Fire TV, which was actually the only tv available to me in my kitchen/family room, there being no cable line available in that part of the house.
I've heard this show being tauted as "Seinfeld on crack." Heheh. This is actually not so very far from accurate. Four narcissistic, underachieving friends: Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), and his twin sister Dee (Kaitlin Olson); are the owners and/or employees of an Irish pub in Philadelphia. Danny Devito joined the cast in the 2nd season as Frank Reynolds, father of the twins. He immediately became part of The Gang, and has never- not by any stretch- been the most sane or rational of the group.
This is the most Laugh-Out-Loud sitcom I think I've ever had the privilege to watch. The hilarious antics, the crazy situations The Gang gets immersed in will amuse to no end. I bear warning, however, that nothing is taboo and nothing is sacred to this dysfunctional group. And when I say nothing and I mean NOTHING!
I pop an episode on just about every time I clean, snack, or just hang out in my kitchen. I know I've seen every episode of every season at least twice, and some of the funniest I've seen multiple times. It is such a sinful pleasure!
I'm usually not much for low-brow, degenerate humor, but this show is just so ridiculously funny, and it never gets old!
