'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Season 6 Episode 10


t’s Always Reviewed in PhiladelphiaIt's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Charlie Kelly: King of the Rats

(Spoiler alert)

In the tenth episode, its Charlie’s birthday, so Frank convinces the rest of the gang that they have to stop being so cynical and throw him a surprise party. This is a great premise because even the gang realizes how cynical they are and try to go against their normally base instincts.

Charlie is bummed out and at first, Dee tries to take him into the movies to distract him while the bar is being decorated. Next, Frank takes him to the spa, but that goes wrong. The gang tries to round up some of Charlie’s friends: a total bunch of weirdos that hang out beneath a bridge, but no go. (It would be interesting to see these characters come back later. They seemed to put an awful amount of effort for a short scene.)

I won’t ruin the ending, but it involves a big switch and Charlie’s “dream book”, which is notably weird. It all wraps up for Charlie the way you might expect.

This is classic Sunny. Even when the characters try to be nice, someone is always screwing them over. We actually find out more about Frank than anyone else and it’s a little bit sad.

A great episode, very solid. Now to the Sunny scale:

1 is Dee

2 is Frank

3 is Charlie

4 is Mac

5 is a Dennis

I give this episode a Mac plus. Not quite a Dennis, but definitely a full on Mac. And don’t miss The League right after. Another classic.
