|Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day) and Dennis (Glenn Howerton) star as three best friends who own Paddy's Irish Pub in Philadelphia, along with Dennis' sister Dee (Kaitlin Olson) who works as the bartender. In each episode, these characters have their own self-interest in mind, no matter how unique or mundane the situation. While they generally are interested in making the business successful, they sometimes have a greater interest in scamming one another. Serious issues such as racism, abortion, underage drinking, molestation, cancer and death somehow weave their way into the cockeyed universe of these four 20-somethings. The second season introduced Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito) as Dennis and Dee's estranged father, who tries to reconnect with his children and rekindle his misspent youth while in the midst of a divorce from their mother Barbara (played by Anne Archer).|
This three disc collection includes all 17 episodes from Seasons 1 & 2 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia!
"There's a willful, even gleeful abandonment of political correctness in FX's spare, painfully funny comedy... Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle
Editor's NotePhiladelphia is known as "The City of Brotherly Love," but the town may soon be famous for its bad behavior thanks to this mean-spirited comedy. This darkly comic sitcom isn't for the easily offended, but it garners critical praise and loyal fans with its smart writing. Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Kaitlin Olson star as friends who run Paddy's Irish Pub. Fuelled by alcohol, vanity, and selfishness, the foursome has a series of misadventures that inspires both cringing and laughter. In the second season, veteran actor Danny DeVito returns to TV to play two of the characters' misanthropic father. Though most sitcoms don't joke about crack addiction, abortion, and racism, IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA turns these taboo subjects into unlikely comedy goldmines. This release includes the first and second seasons in their entirety, plus episode commentary, bloopers, and more.

Customer Reviews of Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia-Seasons 1 and 2
Sunny is Funny5/28/2011
This is an amazingly funny show. It is a gritty and rough comedy, not for little kids, but if you have a teen age sense of humor, this is great for you. The characters and gags are funny and and nicely over the top. The first two seasons are the best.
