‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: The Storm of the Century’ Review

This week It’s Always Sunny tackled the media caused mass hysteria we saw just a few months ago with hurricane Irene. The gang handled the situation exactly as you would expect them to, making for a hilarious episode of storm related hijinks.

The opening bit was funny with the boys changing channels to their preferred set of cleavage reporting on the storm. We also got Dee freaking out and revealing that her and Dennis have a bunker. Then the gang sets out to get supplies for their storm hideout.

One thing led to another and someone had been accidentally shot and Dee and Frank had to take them to the hospital. Accidental gunfire on this show is always hysterical as they pull off the perfect blend of comedy and chaos.

Dennis’ heartthrob reporter eventually showed up at the store he was at causing a hilarious reaction. Dennis proceeded to follow her around while she did her broadcast. This was the funniest part of the episode.

The ending was pretty great too as a car crashed through the store they were all in causing a mass looting incident. This was a funny commentary on how the media responded to Irene.

My only qualm is that there were no surprises in this episode that sent it over the edge like the Jersey Shore or child beauty pageant episodes earlier this season. However, this was an improvement over the last two episodes. I continue to be impressed with how well this has has maintained the humor in its seventh season. (8/10)
