It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Comments

February 18, 2014

I have to wonder how many conservatives enjoy this show.  I came across it on Netflix and so far I have found it funny as hell.  It skewers politically correct subjects in ways that force me to literally laugh out loud and even though I don’t agree with how they target each and every subject I am still watching and laughing well into the third season.  The worst thing about reviewing a show such as this is that I am always afraid that some will feel that the reality doesn’t meet the expectations.  It certainly deserves an “R” or even “R+” rating, but I honestly can’t remember a show that made me laugh as hard as this one.

I have seen reviews which were much less positive than mine and I have to wonder whether those reviews were penned by liberals or conservatives.  I would love to have some feedback to give me a better idea.

Netflix…streaming…..It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia..shouldn’t be missed even if my son tells me that it’s aimed at “hipsters” and not conservative men over 50.

    Wellllll, I wasn’t aware of the show, probably because I don’t watch much tv and have never been able to watch a stupid sit-com for more than about two or three minutes (lol) – more of a rental-movie type person.

    However, with a big capital ‘H,’ the trailer I watched just now – even though it kinda made me angry – I thought the satirical humor was funny (in a slightly twisted, neurotic, egoist, sexual-user, kind of way!) 🙂 ./s ..and I’m sort of joking..
    It was a segment from “The Dennis System.” ..Yep – silly, stupid satire, R-rated, ..and funny. ..Boys really are pigs and girls really are easy idiots, right?!!!! (rhetorical)

  2. Hi. Thanks for the comment. From the thoughts you expressed I’d say you actually got the point of the show quite well. Hope everything else is fine….How are BD and TiG doing these days? I’m not too sure about me….another round of “chemo” tomorrow…

      Oh, I was so happy to read something about what’s happening with you! Thank you! I wondered if you were done with the chemo, so it sounds like not yet.
      I don’t want to pry, if you don’t want to be asked questions, but I hope you are progressing, are comfortable and not in pain. You are my Newsvine friend, and I care, as well as others, I would think. I haven’t said anything about this and won’t.

      I think BD and TiG are doing well. I see both of them.
      TiG isn’t around a lot. I saw him quite a bit on NV this weekend, because there was a huge malfunction.

      Most likely they are making more changes to NBC’s site, since they are the primary; or, they might be adding more to their incorporation of MSNBC into NV. They are still separate in appearance, but technically they aren’t – what happens on one, affects the other. There’s a mirror column on MSNBC of each of us. It works a little differently than NV – only ten discussions are allowed – way too much media. I don’t go over there anymore.

      BD, he’s always cute and funny. He had an article about a chainsaw accident he had, which isn’t funny in itself, but he portrayed it that way a bit, as well as describing his bruises, including a pic of them. I haven’t seen a lot of him lately. He might be busy or taking a break.

      The Vine isn’t as interesting as it was, imo, with more focus on groups rather than individuals and their columns. Many of the original programming issues are still there, the tracker is a huge mess, but I’m still there and miss what it was, and some of the people. Oh well…

      I hope you aren’t too sick from the chemo. You sound like you are in good spirits. Laughing is good. If you need some jokes… I can bring some with me next time. 🙂 …My best regards, Chloe

      • Thanks…you may wonder why I choose to reply here rather then email, etc. I never check my email, it becomes quite over-crowded, and in some cases I cant even access them anymore. Case in point, my newsvine account, At the time of the change I changed various associated info and now I can’t remember how to get back on…lol.

        As for my health…I thought about starting a column with a title such as “living with death”, but decided against it. I’m a bit superstitious, and these things have a way of changing very quickly, but for better or worse I’m still here…:}

    Hi! Hope you’re feeling well today. I understand. Email can be quite a chore. As for Newsvine, that can be an even bigger chore! Thank you for commenting on the email, too.

    It sure is a good thing you mentioned being a bit superstitious (which I would be too under the current circumstances), because I brought some jokes with me for you, and it seemed all of the cutest were either death, funeral, hospital or heaven jokes! And I probably wouldn’t have been smart enough to realize they might not be appropriate! LOL …Well, I’m happy you’re still here – for the better.

    Okay, as I promised, some are kind of dumb, maybe most, but hope they at least bring you a smile. Hope you have a good evening and day tomorrow, too.


    The Reason I’m Tired

    For a couple of years I’ve been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason: I’m tired because I’m overworked.

    The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work.

    There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work.

    Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work.

    2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.

    Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

    At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.

    Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.

    That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.

    And you’re sitting at your computer reading jokes!

    Prison Joke

    Brian hit rock bottom. He was going to jail for insider trading and it couldn’t get much worse than that.

    As the jail warden brought Brian to his cell, Brian’s worst fears were materialized. Sitting hunched over on a bed was his soon to be roommate. He was a hunk of a man wearing a sleeveless undershirt, with vicious looking tattoos on each arm.

    As Brian approached the prison cell the giant looked up at him and said in a deep booming voice, “hey man, what did you do to get yourself in here?”

    “White collar crime” responded Brian nervously.

    “Hey man, how about that? Me too,” the giant said.

    “Phew,” said Brian feeling his body relaxing, “To be honest I got a bit nervous when I saw you.”

    “Nah” responded the giant waving his hand “what’s there to be nervous about?”

    “So tell me,” questioned the giant “How many priest’s did you kill?”

    Birth Control Joke

    “Alright! I’ll drive them to the field trip tomorrow!” Sighed my neighbor resignedly. Sure enough the next day found her with a van full of 7 to 10 year olds.

    Clearly distracted, my neighbor cruised right through a stop sign, “Don’t you know how to stop?” Screamed the exasperated crossing guard, running towards the car.

    My neighbor stopped her car, looked the crossing guard straight in the eye and said clearly upset, “what makes you think they are all mine?!”

    One Letter makes a big difference:

    An Illinois man left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel he decided to send his wife a quick email. Unfortunately, when typing her address, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen: Dearest Wife,
    Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow. P.S. Sure is hot down here.
