'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' season finale tonight: Why you must watch

Posted on

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia wraps up its fifth season tonight on FX at 10 p.m. ET, and you must watch so you get it when others walk around chanting, “Flip-, flip-, flip-, adelphia.” Trust me. It will happen. In the episode, the 10-year ban keeping the Paddy’s Pub gang from competing in the city-wide flip cup championship has been lifted, and they’re looking to reignite the rivalry with the bar staff they’d poisoned. “Flip-, flip-, flip-, adelphia” is their chant. I was shouting it on the street after they showed this episode before the cast’s Nightman Cometh Live stage show in September.

Other reasons to watch: Frank wears skinny jeans. Charlie gyrates (always funny) and tries to pull a “Good Will Hunting.” (He throws out lines from the movie in an attempt to outsmart Penn frat boys who have no respect for Dennis, who was a legend when he was a brother 15 years ago.) The twist ending shows just how deceitful and narcissistic the gang can be. Enjoy.
