You know, maybe there is something to that old cliche about the holidays being a "magical time." I mean, as fans of FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia we have a dumpster full of goodies to enjoy as 2021 gets ready to wrap. First, we have the Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson & Danny DeVito-starring series returning at the start of the month for its record-setting 15th season with two episodes. Then we learned last week that Day, Howerton & McElhenney were kicking off a new podcast series looking back over the show's past 14 seasons, with The "Always Sunny" Podcast already dropping episodes covering "The Gang Gets Racist," "Charlie Wants An Abortion," "Underage Drinking: A National Concern," and now "Charlie Has Cancer" (with new episodes dropping on Mondays). Now to ask for anything more would just be greedy, but then the Television goddess Karma was kind enough to offer me one more moment of grace. Now I haven't made it any mystery how I find folks like Joe Rogan, Dave Chappelle, and Bill Maher to be nothing more than whiney man-children yelling at clouds as they rage against "cancel culture" while making millions off of new contracts that allow them to be heard more than ever while blinded sycophants who could use a class or two in self-confidence and the ability to think for one's self hang on their every word. So to see that The Gang has knocked Rogan off his pretty little perch at the top of the podcasts charts could not come at a better time. It's the kind of thing that can even make the Thanksgiving leftovers taste just that much better…
Now here's a look at the fourth episode covering S01E04 "Charlie Has Cancer"… which also becomes a conversation about Keanu Reeves and Point Break. Because why not…
