It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

I gotta say this is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. It's about four fuck ups that work in a bar and the trouble they get into. Three of the stars created and write the show. Topics include abortion, racism, sexism, religion, transsexuality, slavery, war, sexual harassment, cancer, homelessness, and drugs... lots of drugs. In fact, there is more drug use and humor in this show than anything I've ever seen. The characters somehow always find a reason to get hooked on crack, meth, glue, cocaine, seditives, LSD, and more. The episode where Danny Devito doses Charlie and he becomes the Green Man is a classic. You can tell by the writing these people trip. Charlie Day has got to be one of the funniest characters ever. They shot the pilot themselves for 85$, the FX Network saw it and signed up for a season. Devito saw it, loved it, and came on as the bar owner in season 2. This is a show that gets funnier as you get to know the characters better. I know most people hate sitcoms, or TV in general, but this one is worth watching, renting, or even buying.
