Best: It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, “Mac Day”
I know what most of you are thinking, “that show is still on?” Valid question. After last year’s disastrous season, I was just about ready to throw in the Sunny towel myself. But this year, the gang is back with a vengeance. Some of the episodes thus far even rival the classics of earlier seasons. This week’s focus was on a day dedicated entirely to Mac: Mac Day. But of course, in true Sunny fashion, it really tackled the hypocrisy of religion.
The episode began with the reveal that the gang was dedicating an entire day of their lives to one person at a time. This meant doing whatever that person wanted for an entire 24 hours sans complaining, at the risk of having to start over. So far, this meant spending an entire day chasing ghouls for Charlie (that is a 24-hour-long episode worth producing). For Mac’s day, he decides to teach them all about religion. To help him out, he brings along his cousin from the country who is cleverly named “Country Mac” and played by Sean William Scott (you know him from “Role Models“). Eventually Mac starts to get jealous of Country Mac for upstaging him in badass-ery, but really all he needed to do was call out the fact that this guy was pairing his muscle-tee and motorcycle with linen pants… The gang finally turns on Mac in favor of his cousin but, spoiler alert, Country Mac dies and not a single other person attends his funeral. Side note: how many funerals have been held at Paddy’s? Real question.
