It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Review: The Warthog Loves Crow-tein

at . Comments

Following the Thanksgiving break, The Gang bounces back from "Charlie's Mom Has Cancer" with "Frank's Back in Business."

This is a logical and long overdue move for the show. We know Frank's loaded financially, but we never really saw him in action when he actually was earning his nut. But here, we get a glimpse of "The Warthog" in which he plays a Gordon Gecko-like business magnate.

A Case of Mistaken Identity in Philadelphia

Though I know I shouldn't laugh, Frank's racist comments about "Chinks" and the "Jap Broad" always strike a comical chord. And yet again, Charlie serves as the social commentary, the driving factor for spelling out what's wrong with Wall Street and the finance industry.

"What do we create? What do we build? What do we produce?"

He speaks for most middle-class average Americans who wonder what the purpose is. Their exchanges point out the absurdity of their existence, but then again those same wealth mongers see a product that needs financing and support it. Granted, it's for their own gain, but still... they keep the American Dream alive and that's what the show is all about: scheming and plotting to hit it big. Fake it 'til you make it.

Dennis' downward spiral into complete and utter psychosis has been a joy to witness. His sociopathic mannerisms are made even more enjoyable when set up by his calm, cool rationale. Each week, he leads us to believe he's got everything under control, but even his calculated strategies are getting more warped and sadistic.

Dee and Mac took a bit of a backseat in this episode, but their reactions to Dennis' madness were tasty toppings to his Insanity Sundae.

Lastly, "Fight Milk" is this season's "Dick Towel." The show would be Looney Tunes to not produce and sell that. For plenty more, visit our It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia quotes section.
