Re: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

i had the complete opposite... there has been not-so-good episodes of Sunny before, but this was the first time i thought it was a downright terrible episode.. and for a season opener, that's disheartening

Opposite sides of the world, opposite opinion makes sense smile

Re: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

i'll buy that... i do get what they were trying to do... after so many seasons, certainly there is the 'falling into a rut' thing... and, in my mind, the show hasn't been that great overall for the last four seasons... so i give them kudos for breaking the mold, but this just wasn't for me... and i love musicals...

Re: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

I find the show very hit and miss.  I too love musicals, and apart from the Buffy episode "Once More With Feeling" (which was damn good), I normally cringe through the musical episodes of TV shows (and I've seen a few).

I just found this one to not take it self seriously, and it was a piss take on the awful "The Wiz".  Plus Scott Bakula was in it - and I'm a massive fan of Quantum Leap.

Re: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

and there is the answers right there... 'Once More With Feeling' set the bar so very damn high, no tv musical episode will ever come close... there is only one episode of Scrubs i've never seen and guess what, it's the musical episode...

and i've never seen The Wiz, or Quantum Leap and my only real exposure to Bakula is the one episode of the gods-awful Star Trek Enterprise i was stupid enough to watch...

here's crossing fingers for bigger and better things in Philadelphia this year...

[and for the record, i think Sunny peaked with the beautiful one-two punch of Denis and Dee Go On Welfare and Mac Bangs Denis' Mom]
