Monday Morning Kicks

Danny de Vito always kinda creeped me out because what the hell is he? He’s not a dwarf and he’s not a midget, he’s just a really short guy who I can’t look at without picturing the Penguin from Batman.

He’s a great actor though, I decided this on Friday night when J-Rab, Jennyjenjen (previously known as Jenni-fuh) and me invited ourselves around to Barbarian’s place after a few drinks at Trenchtown and spent the whole night watching It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.



I don’t know if I’ve been living under a rock the past few years and after posting this a whole bunch of you are going to think I fit into the ‘laggard’ section of the adoption curve (GOD FORBID!) but seriously, I’ve never heard anyone talk about It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and it’s the funniest fucking TV show I’ve watched since Flight of the Conchords.

The humour’s completely different though – Sunny In Philly is full of loud, shouty Americans doing insanely stupid and fucked up shit to one another that had me crying I was laughing so hard.

Think Three’s Company on crack and without the lame canned laughter. I hate canned laughter. Those are dead people laughing, did you know that? Yeah, canned laughter is recycled over and over so the next time you hear it in a sitcom, just think about that for a second. Dead people.

You know a TV show’s a winner when the episodes have titles like “Mac’s Banging The Waitress”, “Mac and Charlie Die” and “Who Pooped The Bed?”

And to top it all off they got Danny de Vito in there playing Frank Reynolds who frequently exploits and insults anyone he comes into contact with and is generally shady, unethical and pretty siff all in all.

And so I leave you with the following clip to give you a laugh on what is otherwise a mind-numbingly crap Monday.



Catch you crazy cats tomorrow.

    its always sunny rocks the cocks off anything on tv. its just so wrong – like staring at a car wreck and not being able to look away. summin else that simply confirms that there is no limit to our collective depravity and further fukt-upness when it comes to deriving joy from it – aka sheer fuking awesomeness. not to mention its some of the best writing i’ve seen in a long time and done so by none other than charlie mac and dennis themselves ….

    and ditto on the canned laughter.

      Agree on the writing 100% – sharp as a tack. I just got my hands on all 5 seasons, hell yeah!

      Do a lot of people know about this show? I can’t believe it’s been around since 2005 and I had no idea. Christ I’m an asshole.

    I agree, you’re an asshole.

    You hadn’t seen this show? What’s wrong with you?

    The best by far are the two Nightman episodes, “Sweet Dee dates a retarded person” and “The Nightman cometh”.
