(S05E01) It’s Always Sunny is back and it’s kicking your ass. Or at least it’s threatening you and your wife until you start crying a little bit and agree to partake in the antics, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. There were a lot of good moments in the premiere episode, though it didn’t really feel like a typical season opener, in as much as it didn’t present anything too big and different from the usual Always Sunny episode. Again, it was funny, of course, but it didn’t scream “premiere”, and perhaps that’s the best thing for Always Sunny.
Honestly, a small part of me feared that five seasons in would be about the time the creators decided to give the show a mini-makeover, like some other shows. Make a fancier title design, drop “Temptation Sensation” for something specifically tailored to the show… I probably would have started shouting at the television (because we all know that’s incredibly effective) if there was something like a wacky season five spruce-up of the opening credits. I still feel the sting of Weeds‘ almost-betrayal in my mind, when they dropped their catchy little theme tune for some crappy digital visual gags.
But I digress.
The members of the gang don’t change, don’t improve upon their selves, so why should anything be punched up and different on the show? Dropping us right into another terrible, greedy plot (which ends in a carefree chicken fight in someone else’s pool) is just perfect and maybe even a little reassuring, as if to let us know that it’s still the show we love.
As always, whenever there are people suffering and feeling a little desperate, the gang sees a golden opportunity. In this case, it’s the mortgage crisis, and in this episode, the boys decided to make a little cash from it. Mac and Dennis donned some blazers and got a little flirtatious and needlessly angry (respectively) to try and sell a house they technically didn’t already have. One of the best parts of the episode was just Mac’s confused fury-face after the confrontation on the stairs. I would also like to note that Mac could have removed the sleeves from that blazer and totally pulled off that look.
Meanwhile, Charlie brushed up on some of his lawyer-ing skills, which somehow turned into him putting on his one go-to tie and challenging a real lawyer to a duel. I like how Charlie’s illiteracy has now spiraled out of just crazy-scribbles to generously sprinkled malapropisms in his speech. Yeah. “Malapropisms.” I totally paid attention to most of AP English.
Sweet Dee, on the other hand, essentially tried to sell her uterus as prime real estate to a couple looking for a surrogate. “You guys want to do the Octomom thing? I’m game. You want to out-do that bitch? I’ll have that conversation! — I’m kidding, I don’t want ten people inside of me.” Also, way to find an excuse to show off those abs. Kaitlin Olson, your lankiness is deceptive.
Frank was also there, accidentally severely burning children’s hands and sending battering rams through gates. Usual Frank stuff.
Hey guys! We have known her and loved her as Dee Reynolds on the comedy series Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia. But soon we will see Kaitlin Olson, in an entirely different role on the big screen. The actress has joined the cast of the romantic comedy movie, Leap Year. She will be seen in a supporting role in the movie which will be starring Amy Adams, Bill Nighy, Matthew Goode and Adam Scott.
This movie is about an American woman played by Amy Adams, who sets out to search for her boyfriend in Ireland. She intends to propose to him on 29th February, the leap day, so that he can not reject her as per tradition. However, the weather, forces her to change plans and she has to take the help of an Irish innkeeper played by Matthew Goode, to fulfill her plans.
Olson will be seen portraying the role of the married elder sibling of Amy Adam‘s character. This is not the first time that Olson is going to appear in a movie, as she has been seen in movies earlier as well. She did a few films at the start of her acting career where she played minor roles. However, she took a break from her film career and did not do any movies from 2003 to 2008.
However, after the long gap, Olson will be seen in the movie Weather Girl which is supposed to be released on 10th July, 2009. And now with her joining the cast of Leap Year, it seems that she is working her way back into the movie world. Well, that is really great as we would definitely love to see her perform on the big screen.
Olson has been a part of Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, from the very beginning and her character forms a vital part of the gang. She has portrayed her character wonderfully well and we can relate to the frustration and anger she feels as she is criticized for many reasons including her looks, her lack of talent and the fact that she is a woman. Olson has also convincingly projected the satisfaction that Dee feels as she participates equally in the gang’s illegal and morally disputed activities.
