FX may be best known these days for its edgy dramas, but it also has a great comedy in its stable: "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," about two siblings and their friends who run an Irish pub in Philly. Together with Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Dennis's (Glenn Howerton) enterprising dad (Danny DeVito), the foursome embark on one delightfully ill-advised adventure after another. Whether they're attending abortion-rights rallies to meet girls, pretending to be disabled to get sympathy lap dances or charging people to see a stain on their wall that looks like the Virgin Mary, the group's short-sighted plans always go awry — yet their friendships remain relatively intact. One of the best things about this show is that it's on FX, a network that not only pushes the envelope with its dramas, but also makes "Always Sunny" much darker than most other comedies currently on TV.
The third season is set to premiere Sept. 13, but FX and MySpace have made one episode available now. The episode, "Mac is a Serial Killer," will be online from today through Aug. 23. It's not the season premiere, but it will appear later in this fall's 15-episode season. The MySpace site also includes a few videos and some photos and other goodies for pimping out your own profile.
If you need to catch up, the first two seasons arrive on DVD Sept. 4. In the meantime, you can see some of the amusing (and vaguely disturbing) "Mac vs. PC" parodies FX is using to promote the upcoming season if you
