I’m Calling An Intervention On It’s Always Sunny

In the past, when I’ve written about It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, it has been to complain about how the show has gone downhill. I know that this is an unpopular position to take because the show is basically the Zooey Deschanel of shows. Well your precious Zooey Deschanel was also in The Happening, nerds, so take it easy. We all make mistakes. Besides, don’t you guys think this hurts me, too? It’s like that part in every movie about drugs ever where the mom is leaned up against the deadbolted door listening to her junkie son beg to be let back in, but through her tears she knows that she simply can’t allow this kind of danger into her house. What I’m saying is that It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has stolen from my purse for the last time. And my whole point is that this show has elements of greatness. It can still be saved if we simply gather together in one place and tell the show how it has hurt us. The show needs to want help before it can get help. Other metaphors about recovery.

Two new behind-the-scenes promos for season 4 (via Film School Rejects) after the jump. I hope you like poop jokes.

Part One

Part Two

There’s still hope. When I see things like the gang helping an immigrant fill out a credit card application, I’m reminded of how happy we used to be. I know the show I loved is still in there somewhere. Fight, It’s Always Sunny. You can do this.
