Critic Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

If you're prudish or just polite, in other words, you'll be turned off by all the happy offensiveness. If you're not turned off, though, you may be entertained, as I am.

Oct 1, 2013 | Full Review…

The four dirtbags trying to run a dive bar together are so energetically amoral in trying to turn things like abortion rallies and underage drinking to their advantage that you'll be hooked even before Danny DeVito joins the cast. Grimy magic.

Aug 5, 2020 | Full Review…

"It's Always Sunny" still possesses considerably more energy than your average comedy.

Top Critic

There is a willful, even gleeful abandonment of political correctness in FX's spare, painfully funny comedy It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Apr 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Philadelphia is looking for a bigger score from its old pros. DeVito the dad just wants to be part of the gang, and the foursome, kicking and screaming and poking fun at this whole sitcom gang concept, makes room.

Oct 1, 2013 | Full Review…

It's set in a bar, but Cheers this ain't. Sunny is much more of a latter-day descendant of Seinfeld, with DeVito as the most gleefully selfish character in the bunch.

Oct 1, 2013 | Full Review…

The show is the right thing to do, viewers. So do.

Nov 13, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I can't wait for this show to get back on the air.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

In real life, we would never want to know those often horrible people, but the cast make them incredibly fun to watch on TV, even as we gasp at the lengths (and depths) that they will go to.

    My mans danny devito comes and makes the show even better than it already was!
  • Aug 16, 2019
    The addition of Danny DeVito to the cast, as Frank is genius. The show really ups it's game in this season, and has many hints at the absolute genius that follows.
  • Jan 13, 2019
    Mac bangs Dennis’ mom. What more could we ask for? The best show on Earth!
  • Oct 12, 2018
    With the addition of Danny Devito Sunny comes into its own as one of televisions greatest comedies.
  • Jan 28, 2018
    Season Two is better and more characters to love with a new cast member Danny Devito makes it better then ever Charlie Day is still the dumb clown we all love Glenn Howerton is still the pretty boy that we laugh at Rob McElhenney Mac is the master and fighting Kaitlin Olson is dee 9/10
  • Jun 05, 2017
    It seemed to be a lot better to me, and I definitely think that Danny DeVito was a great addition and help! Also, a great last two episodes of the season, and season finale/cliffhanger!
  • May 12, 2014
    91% The addition of Danny Devito to this show was a genius move.
  • Feb 28, 2014
    Introducing Danny DeVito to the cast only heightened the zany hijinks and twisted character dynamics that the show had already established as it's strong point. Consistently one of the best American comedies on TV.
