It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia s13e05 'The Gang Gets New Wheels,' Mediocre Episode (REVIEW)


Reporter's Note: Now that the madness of New York Comic Con (NYCC) is behind us, we're giving you two scoops of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia reviews to get up to speed.

Welcome back to Bleeding Cool's weekly review of FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, as we offer up our thoughts on the fifth episode of season 13, 'The Gang Gets New Wheels.'

So after a slightly less than productive run at a sexual harassment workshop last week, Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito) are hitting the road – or at least trying to.

Of course – even though they're not actually going anywhere – you can expect Charlie, Mac, and Frank to turn something as basic as riding a bicycle or renewing a driver's license into a DEFCON 1 situation. As for Dee and Dennis? Looks like the Reynolds siblings might be auditioning for "The Real Housewives of South Philly" and… we're not quite sure what happened to Dennis.


Check out our review of FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia s13e05 'The Gang Gets New Wheels' and see why we found this episode to be a trip we were a little too familiar with…

Spoiler Warnings: I'll be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode, so just keep that in mind. Definitely not looking for pitchforks and torches outside my apartment.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia s13e05 'The Gang Gets New Wheels': Dee gets in with a group of cool, rich housewives. Dennis hits it off with some everyday blue-collar bros. Frank struggles to renew his license, and Charlie and Mac deal with a new generation of bicycle bullies.

The Gang Returns… mostly…. in the 13th season of the FXX original comedy series It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito) return to their duplicitous, scheming ways at Paddy's Pub, while Dennis (Glenn Howerton) takes on the new role of father in North Dakota.

Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with The Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history – an Eagles Super Bowl victory.
