After this week's double-dose of nostalgia and sledgehammer satire, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson & Danny DeVito are looking to export Paddy's charm and wisdom over to Ireland in next week's episodes of FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: "The Gang Goes To Ireland" and "The Gang's Still In Ireland" (written by McElhenney, Day & Howerton, and directed by Megan Ganz). While Dee (Olson) looks to hit the big time with the role of "Obnoxious American MILF," Dennis (Howerton) ends up helping Frank (DeVito) take care of some "business." As for Mac (McElhenney) and Charlie (Day), it's all about learning about one's Irish heritage. What could go wrong, right?
Before you get a chance to rattle off a dozen or so ways that scenario can and will go wrong, take a breather and check out the following preview for this season's fifth episode of FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia:
