‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Season 7 Review

Usually when a show gets around its sixth or seventh season things start to look a bit grim concerning the future of the show. Not for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Season seven brought a number of classic episodes to the show’s already impressive history. There was not one bad episode in this group of thirteen and a number of classics that every fan will enjoy for years to come by the means of home video.

The season started with a number of great episodes. Frank’s Pretty Woman was a nice way to start off the season to show that the gang will be taking Sunny to new levels this season. The next two were classics. The Gang Goes to the Jersey Shore and Frank’s Little Beauties were both fantastic episodes that delivered the laughs and set the precedent that season seven would be memorable just three episodes in.

After that the show fulfilled a consistent level of quality for a few episodes before delivering Chardee MacDennis: The Game of Games, one of the best episodes of all time. Then we also got The Gang Gets Trapped and Thunder Gun Express, two more classics that could rightfully make any top ten list.

But with all this greatness there were a few lows. How Mac Got Fat was a disappointing episode just because it could have been so much more than it was. Also the two part episodes that closed out the season were just a lot of build-up with very little payoff (although that dance number was a stand-out sequence). Even so though, these were not bad episodes, just mediocre ones.

Season seven is a stand-out set of episodes for the show. We got at least five brilliant episodes that are indisputable classics. Even the worst episodes of the season had enough humor staggered in them to make them enjoyable television. Bring on season eight! (9/10)

  1. you have got to be shitting me dude, season 7 was absolute garbage, season 1-5 were all classics but the showing has been rapidly declining, season 6 was pretty good and season 7 was absolute garbage compared to the other seasons. THE GANG GETS TRAPPED A TOP TEN EPISODE ARE YOU F’ING KIDDING ME??!! Thats easily the worst sunny episode of all time. EASILY. I didnt laugh not even a chuckly once in that episode. The last episode was the best one of the season but still the show got very dark and strange this year which i did not work well. In theory it sounds awesome for these characters but they did not deliver. The writing sounded forced and was weird this season. The show defiantly took a giant step backwards this season

    • I completely agree. I did a search to see the reviews on this season, and with the google preview that said “Usually when a show gets around its sixth or seventh season things start to look a bit grim concerning the future of the show,” I expected it to say that it’s started with IASIP. But really, no. This is without a doubt the worst season of this show. I can’t remember one thing I laughed hard at all season. The board game episode was especially awful. I don’t know what happened. The Fat Mac thing didn’t seem to work. And is it me, or does Charlie all of a sudden not seem so stupid anymore?
