There's a serial killer running loose in Philadelphia, and Mac has been exhibiting some pretty bizarre behavior as of late.

But Charlie believes that Mac is innocent, and he's ready to use all the legal knowledge he's gained from watching television to prove it.

Tv Season Info

The amoral shenanigans of the slacker, pub-owning gang are kicked up a notch in Series 3 as Mac (Rob McElhenney) is suspected of being a serial killer, Dennis (Glenn Howerton) is mistaken for a child molester, and Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Mac try to make a buck off a baby they find in a dumpster. The gang even gets mixed up with the mob and the only way out is for Dennis to become a male escort. Maybe such outlandish behaviour is simply in their genes. After all, Frank (Danny DeVito), the father of Dee and Dennis, is totally out of control and has a "gang" of his own, the Yellow Jacket Boys (played by the doo-wop group the Mighty Echoes). And the dear old dad of Mac is no better. He's an ex-con and has his eye on Dee, who's definitely not interested. She dates a mentally challenged rapper instead. Dee also tries out for the professional football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, as does Mac, Dennis and Doyle McPoyle (Bob Rusch), reigniting the gang's feud with the inbred Doyle and his equally creepy brothers Liam and Ryan (Jimmi Simpson and Nate Mooney). Later on, the McPoyles invade Paddy's and it escalates into a hostage situation. The seriescloses with Charlie (Charlie Day) inadvertently putting the bar up as the grand prize in a dance marathon.

Critic Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 3

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Despite its flaws, the series invariably has moments, and it's difficult not to root for any promising comedy given the difficulties plaguing the genre.

There's a seriousness to It's Always Sunny's clowning, but it's tied up not in messages-just in its sharp writing and its cast's delirious, brilliantly committed performances.

Oct 1, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

there's a slight but perceptible stylistic change that makes it less funny, even though it's still insane and inspired and original.

Oct 1, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There's a lot of life in the old sitcom format yet, my friends. Witness It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, which makes hilarious hay out of TV's hoariest genre.

As I say, while I may not have laughed as consistently throughout each episode, there were more than enough laughs to keep me coming back.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

I can certainly appreciate the kind of humor Always Sunny delivers, based on what I've seen so far. You just need to be prepared to let go and enjoy the humor for what it is.

May 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A show that has continued to prove it is willing to go further than almost any other in the name of comedy.

Audience Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 3

  • Mar 05, 2014
    The gang is back for more hilarity in Season 3 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. With two seasons under its belt, the show starts to use its supporting cast of characters more; such as the McPoyles, Rickety Cricket, and the Waitress. The series also stretches its storytelling ability by revisiting past story threads and crafting the show's first two part episode. Additionally, the comedy features more parody this time around, and the characters get a little more goofball. Though it has a bit of a different feel, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia: Season 3 continues to deliver the laughs.

    u should just watch it pls

    I've noticed that many of the best sitcoms peak between seasons 3-6 - Seinfeld definitely, Curb, Scrubs, Frasier (in my opinion) to name a few. And it's definitely true for Always Sunny. The show really gets into it's stride, the characters are fully developed and the writing and acting is just incredible.

    Some of Sunny’s classic episodes are found in this phenomenal season.

    It took me a lot longer to watch this season than the last two, because I'm watching it with my grandparents. It's probably gonna going to take me even longer to watch the next fourth season! Anyways, just as good as the previous seasons! Not that this show's gotten bad, but it's kinda kind of into it's little stride type of thing, so like, it's mostly always gonna going to be pretty good! Maybe some episodes higher or lower than the average, but not many, and not by much!
  • Jul 23, 2014
    Worst season but still good
  • May 12, 2014
    82% Most of the episodes are pretty good, even if some of the jokes feel a tad forced.
  • Feb 28, 2014
    Possibly their very best season. Just look at the episode list!
