It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 14

The Television Critics Association visited the set of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, where the show is filming its landmark 14th season. That’s 14 years of the gang getting in trouble. They haven’t run out of schemes, and they certainly haven’t learned their lesson.

The cast and creators of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia spoke to reporters after the tour of Paddy’s Pub, Frank and Charlie’s apartment, and Dee’s apartment. Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson and Danny Devito previewed the upcoming 14th season, which premieres Wednesday, September 25 at 10PM on FXX.

A year—that’s all it took for my opinion on Glee to change from “yay” to “bleh”. Last time I wrote about the series, Fox had preemptively released a Vol. 1 DVD release/cash grab for the show, and at the time, my enthusiasm for Glee was at its peak. Then the show’s sugar high wore off, and left me with a repeat of tiring romances and routine sad-funny character subplots. The first half of the season—”The Road to Sectionals”, as it’s referred to on the DVD—had an upbeat yet insidious charm to it, and its cynical undertones (turned into deliciously hate-filled overtones by Jane Lynch) kept the otherwise cheerfully formulaic material feeling fresh. And after bringing many of the subplots to a satisfying close, it seemed like the show writers were planning to change up the story and character relationships just in the nick of time. Instead, they sought out frustrating ways to negate any progress that the story had made in order to unenthusiastically recycle subplots that had since grown bland. And perhaps this is just a result of my waning interest, but by the end of the season, the series’ much-needed edge had been lost as well. My (shameful) suggestion: stick to the Vol. 1 release, and wait out the rest of the season until you stop caring.
