It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s humor really hinges on the show’s unique context. The Gang is unequivocally terrible. Sweet Dee, Frank, Dennis, Mac, Charlie — they are all terrible, garbage people but when they do terrible, garbage things, we realize the inherent idiocy behind their reprehensible schemes and we laugh and we feel good about ourselves and then we pour more cereal into our bowl because there are still some dregs of cloudy milk left over from our first bowl of CTC. The problems begin when any of the show’s elements are extracted from this specific, delusional world.
