With season 14 currently underway (and running strong – check out our reviews below), FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is now tied with ABC's The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series.
Now that's a title Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito) would be more than happy to hang behind the bar – and one they're expected to hold on their very own very soon.
Safe to say things are pretty good for The Gang from Paddy's Pub – and from the sounds of FX CEO John Landgraf, the network would like things to keep going "pretty good" for two more seasons (at least).
After a failed attempt at finding love (at least for some of them) and a successful (if not "scorched earth"-like) effort to "save" the Thunder Gun franchise, Dennis, Mac, Charlie, and Frank didn't want to waste time getting back to the scheming. Unfortunately for them (but big props to Dee), they ran face-first into the brick wall that was "Dee Day".
Moving quickly on from there… the season got back on track as we travelled into Charlie's twistedly bizarre mind as he looks to crack the case of who "diarrhea-poisoned" Frank. Then "The Gang Solves Global Warming"… only to find a way to leave things wonderfully worse than they were before.
Which brings us to this week's "Paddy's Has a Jumper", and with a title like that, you can pretty much assume what the hot topic of conversation is going to be…
Yup, that's right. Frank and his Casaba.
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" season 14, episode 8 "Paddy's Has a Jumper": Trapped inside Paddy's with a suicide jumper on the roof, the Gang wonders if they should bother intervening with an algorithm of their own – Could he, would he, should we? Directed by Kimberly McCullough, and written by Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider.
In the following previously-released preview, viewers get an overview of what lies ahead this season, including more clues on that whole "Casaba" mystery (see below)…
In this previously-released look at the upcoming season, the disturbing Frank/Casaba melon mystery deepens as an essential question is put forth: What fruit would you "bang"?
That clip followed up on an earlier McElhenney Instagram post that had us seriously concerned about what's going on with Frank and that Casaba:
