The 25 Best It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Episodes, Ranked
By SCOTT THOMAS
25. Season 10, Episode 1
One of the show's strengths is its ability to approach topics from oblique angles with fresh perspectives. “The Gang Beats Boggs” is about baseball and how athletes inspire, but more specifically, it's about the gang attempting to beat Wade Bogg’s record of drinking 70 beers on a cross-country flight. While not the show’s best episode, it certainly knows how to play ball.
24. Season 11, Episode 1
Some of the series’ best episodes are sequels to fan favorites, like the “CharDee MacDennis” follow-up “Electric Boogaloo.” The gang and their board game are crazier than ever from Frank’s unfortunate flag and Charlie swallowing glass to Andy the Mattel executive who might be in real danger. The gags may be stronger than the structure, but it’s essential cannon.
23. Season 11, Episode 5
In all its hilarity, “Sunny” can be a horror show, and "Mac & Dennis Move to the Suburbs" is the scariest of them all. When Dennis and Mac move to the suburbs they're cut off from their normal lives and quickly become unhinged, producing some of the show’s funniest Mac and Dennis moments and a great performance from Glenn Howerton.
22. Season 7, Episode 7
From inebriated Sweet Dee and Frank in an animal crate to the war dance and dart throwing, “CharDee MacDennis” is a comedic force. The gang introduces their unhinged version of a board game while Frank Reynolds acts as an audience stand-in, with no clue what’s going on; “CharDee MacDennis” has classic “It's Always Sunny” hijinks at their best.
21. Season 12, Episode 4
From Paddy’s Pup to the Middle East and from Boko Haram to the UFC, “Wolf Cola” is “It’s Always Sunny” at its most expansive. When the gang starts the beverage-based businesses, Wolf Cola and Fight Milk, the end result is hilarious failure that demonstrates the point that the gang has an insular logic that while comical, doesn’t hold true outside of Paddy’s Pub.
