IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA is back and this time Frank (Danny DeVito) has found true love in the arms of a prostitute.  We are talking about Frank, so what did you expect?  The way Frank says, “I’m gonna make that whore my wife” will put a smile on your face until next week’s adventure.  Oh, next week “The Gang Goes to the Jersey Shore” and it is quite a trip.  A lot of you were disappointed with last season and I’ll tell you what, they are going to win you back this season.  The first four episodes are full of what you have always loved about the show and several new key elements like Mac’s (Rob McElhenney) new physique, violence, profanity, drug abuse, whores, death, road trips, more drug abuse, blood, guns, diddling, pageants, more blood, funerals, steroids, love, ham and so much more.  If they were going for extra shock and awe then they have succeeded this season.  This is lucky number seven for them and if these first episodes are a taste of what is to come, then order me a case of dick towels in celebration.

“Frank’s Pretty Woman”—With Frank intent on marrying a prostitute, The Gang tries to make the best of it by attempting an image makeover to uncover the heart of gold that exists deep inside Frank’s “pretty woman.”  Alanna Ubach guest stars.  Written by Scott Marder and Rob Rosell.  Directed by Matt Shakman.

Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Charlie (Charlie Day) know exactly how to turn a good deed around.  Luckily, the patrons of Paddy’s Pub are safe and storyless for now.  I have a feeling this will be examined again in the future, though.

Frank introduces the love of his life, Roxy (Alanna Ubach) to the gang and they are less than delighted.  Dennis (Glenn Howerton) finds her “unspeakably crass” and they feel Frank deserves better.  That forces them to join forces and make a wrong into less of a wrong.  Now you know only pure comedy gold will come out of that.  Alanna is naturally gorgeous, so the make-up team really had their hands full trying to dirty her up for the role.  She is amazing as Roxy and Roxy’s dialog is sensational.  Just wait until you hear her describe a jacket.  You are going to fall in love with Roxy.  It will be a strange love but you will see and her remark to Dennis, has been brewing for years.  Someone needs to keep Dennis in line.  He’s the pretty boy of the gang and he knows it but Mac is coming in second, being that he is now a “muscle bound freak.”

Oh Mac, how I love that you love “cultivating” but there comes a time when trash bags of Mexican food become a problem.  If you saw the most recent preview, you know that Mac is now on insulin and Dennis’s idea of “healthy as shit” is similar to that of a runway model.

Frank and Charlie put their heads together and come up with a plan to enrich their social lives.  The fact that the word “tarnation” was put to use in this episode makes it an instant classic.  Charlie really lets his demons loose and you will instantly be consumed by the fluidity of the situation.

I’ve missed the gang and in this episode we get to learn what Dennis wants the most in life and it’s not what you would ever think.  Dee’s feet make a statement and light is finally shed on years of bad fashion choices.  It will all make sense.  Don’t miss the season seven premiere of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Thursday at 10 PM EST only on FX.
