Critic Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 13

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Early installments certainly suggest that the show is reaching for freshness through topicality and self-examination.

Top Critic

Season 13 proves McElhenney, Day, and Howerton aren't out of ideas; the formula they've established still works beautifully, and allows them to stretch as far as their creativity demands.

Top Critic

We may be living in the era of the post-comedy comedy, but Wednesday's première of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia..." is a reminder that there's still a place for comedy comedy -- hilarious, grotesque, delirious, pointless comedy.

Top Critic

[It] brings the show's progress to a juncture that markedly resembles square one. Lucky number thirteen is to be a season of change...

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Always Sunny is a finely calibrated balance scale, where the week's triumphs for some come at the precise measure of the others' crushing humiliations, and the Gang's intertwined madness is snarled beyond individual or group redemption.

Top Critic

The season isn't bad, per se, but with It's Always Sunny's impeccable track record, even the most tentative of missteps constitutes a massive fall in quality.

Nov 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This was a clear tonal shift and I didn't expect such beauty or emotional heft.

Nov 9, 2018 | Full Review…

After thirteen years on the air, the show continues to push buttons and boundaries.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

They're terrible at expressing their feelings of pain, resentment, and loneliness, which ends up manifesting as sociopathy. It's great for comedy, and Sunny never loses sight of that. But it's also been weirdly great for pathos.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Always Sunny is off to a strong start now that it's proven that it can still pull off twists after more than a decade on the air.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Sunny is almost like psychological field notes. It has developed this extremely unhealthy group dynamic to such a degree that watching all the members interact is one hell of a potent experience.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

...that, really, has been Always Sunny's magic since the beginning. The Gang is the perfect stand-in for any issue the writers want because their toxicity is both the joke and the punchline.

Audience Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 13

  • 2d ago
    The series has sold out to the social justice warrior rhetoric. The characters have been annihilated acting in ways completely contrary to their traits and abilities.
  • May 08, 2020
    They have put ideology ahead of entertainment. Is this a comedy series or a VOX documentary?
  • Apr 02, 2020
    Reviews like "Mac Finds His Pride" is the worst episode of Sunny" show just how truly homophobic and lacking in taste people are. Click on the profile of the critical / 1-star reviews, and check the users' TV reviews and you'll see 1 of 2 things. They've either created their account just to bash this show for giving gay people a space OR their entire review history revolves around critiquing shows for being "too gay". These people are nuts for reviewing a sho based on a political view rather than by its merit of cinematography, writing, choreography, and comedy. This series is phenomenal the whole way through, but the triggered boomers gotta drag their political views into it. Just stop. Enjoy the show, it's a masterpiece.

    "Mac Finds His Pride" is perhaps the worst epidsode of Sunny, I couldn't even finish it. Completely forced, horrible pacing, and the entire episode finds Mac struggling over his feelings. Seriously, wtf? Painful to watch.

    Consistent and different at the same time. No better show out there.
  • Oct 03, 2019
    The character of the show has lost so much of what made it funny and unique from the first half of the seasons that it has gotten stale. The show has attempted to counter that staleness but those attempts have fallen flat and caused the show to lose its core elements. Further, the characters have become exaggerated and uninteresting caricatures of themselves. The subtle aspects of the characters have become so over blown they are not funny. Rather it gives the characters a less naturally comedic feel.

    It's amazing that after 13 seasons, the show still hasn't slowed down. The writing remains topical and creative. They are still pushing boundaries and it's a good as it ever was.
  • Aug 16, 2019
    Again, this series is far more political than in the past. Sexism and toxic masculinity, gender identity and the LGBT struggle are all challenged. As I said previously, the show is morally correct to tackle these issues. The results are also amazing, and still hilarious. The famous ending to the series is also a genuinely beautiful and effecting scene.
  • Aug 12, 2019
    Just really great stuff, with a surprising and lovely end
