Bah, I don't get this at all. Series has had more average episode as time went on as expected, but it's still my favorite comedy on television BY FAR. This season especially has been really great so far, could be one of the best.What is the general consensus on Always Sunny's later seasons?
I had such a blast with most of the show over the years.
I personally feel the show hit a massive nosedive around the double digit seasons, although the quality was spotty at times leading up to those.
Some episodes were still fun (in fact "Charlie Work" S10E4 is among my favorite episodes of the whole show), but there were way more misses than hits on the whole, and all the characters becoming more and more simulated caricatures of their former selves over time certainly didn't help either. But around season 10/11 is where I felt a similar "loss of magic" to when Futurama and Simpsons went HD for example.
Season 12 I thought was just reeeally bad for the most part, and I couldn't even bring myself to finish watching season 13. Had to tap out. Couldn't do it.
Caught a couple season 14 episodes on TV and that didn't restore my confidence that I should give it another shot.
Can't comment on the current season, as I only saw the first two episodes (roommates one and the test screening one). They at least weren't physically painful to sit through as some of season 12 and 13, but I certainly didn't enjoy them. It's fine to have different preferences and whatnot, as likewise, I personally don't get at all how some people are completely satisfied with the later seasons. I often had a visceral gut reaction of "this is so bad, WTF happened" and I had to rub my temples through many S12 and S13 episodes.
He just old lol. Also he was way more in shape when younger Dennis. At this age, especially next to buff as hell Mac he's gonna look extra scrawny. His demeanor does feel just slightly different this season. Less rage, I guess.
The constant emoji use is still relevant enough, but I could have done without them having to literally say the theme of the episode at the end.
Ok everyone is commenting on her face but I'm with you on this. She looks really good. This season has also given her great storylines.
I didn't catch this until reading a recap, but Charlie thinking that maraschino cherries are the ones you use for pie is pretty damn funny.Man, I couldn't disagree more with you guys. Normally I'm not really into the gimmicky episodes, but they nailed this one. Not only was it funny in it's own right, it was a great pastiche of detective noirs. They really perfectly got that look and feel down. Mac and Dennis, especially, were fun.
Agreed. Great episode.Man, I couldn't disagree more with you guys. Normally I'm not really into the gimmicky episodes, but they nailed this one. Not only was it funny in it's own right, it was a great pastiche of detective noirs. They really perfectly got that look and feel down. Mac and Dennis, especially, were fun.
Feels like the entire later seasons are like this though. Constant gimmick episodes/self contained around a single point and stretched over the entire episode. Texting, Noir, Thunder Gun, and a couple more from last season Im forgetting.
Constant gimmick? I think you don't understand what "gimmick" means... Maybe you mean genre or concept?
