Critic Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 12

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

Rarely do comedies last as long as this one has, and rarer still do they continue to challenge themselves as well as their viewers. Judge it however you like, but the gang has made it impossible to ignore Sunny in 2017.

The best they can do is highlight the basic inequality they see, but because they can't feel it, "The Gang Turns Black" is just a surface-level experiment.

It's a sitcom that works not just because of how funny it is, but because it's so adept and sending up and indulging in the very worst of America.

The show's best season ever.

It's clever, fearless ad well-meaning, while only occasionally cringe-inducing.

January 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Sometimes it feels like an American continuation of the anarchic spirit of The Young Ones...Throughout, it remains both transgressive and ingenious.

Audience Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 12

While it begins incredibly strong, Season 12 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia gives out about halfway through and ends up being one of the weakest seasons of the series. The show makes two rather risky moves to shake things up, bringing Mac out of the closet and making Dennis a father, and neither of them pays off (as they're not funny). In fact, Mac being ambiguously or mistakenly gay has been a huge source of laughs in the past few seasons, and with that gone the character dynamics are all off. However, there are a couple of brilliant episodes, such as "The Gang Turns Black" and "Old Lady House: A Situation Comedy," that are extraordinarily funny. It has its moments, but overall Season 12 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is kind of rough.
