It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is a hilarious show and worth getting the DVD so you can watch it in a marathon. I got so addicted I burned through all 16 in about a week (That's fast when you have other stuff to watch for work like me). Don’t get excited about the extras though.
DVD Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
The behind the scenes features are just the standard talking heads pieces. A spot on Kaitlin Olsen's audition has some clips of her but it's more about the explanation of how they brought her on. The main spot is all about development.
The biggest complaint is that they don't offer the original digital short in its entirety. They have clips of it in the featurette but it would have been really interesting to see the crappy video form of the show.
The gag reels feature a few alternate improvisations that are fun but it's mostly everyone cracking each other up. You see how hard it is to keep a straight face with some of the ridiculous lines they say, but there are no outrageous gaffes.
So it's a standard collection of extras, but again, the show is awesome. I had never seen it before and once I got into the F'ed up messages and morals, I couldn't stop watching.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is out on DVD now.
