It's Always Sunny – Season 6

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Just caught up — still good for some solid laughs, but it feels like the show's really showing its age, sadly. A lot of the topical stuff doesn't really come off and there's a whiff of desperation to the callbacks (Don Cheadle, Pepperjack etc) which have been creeping in the past few years.

Yeah, that's pretty much my take. It's far from Simpsons-painful but the humour doesn't have the same grit anymore. I watch more out of habit than expectation now.

I agree too, but I was excited for Pepper jack.

Watched the final episodes of the short season. Kinda limped to the finish line. :meh:

Yup. Just eight episodes. The premiere was the best, imo.

OTOH, the current season of Curb has been pretty decent, better than in several years.

Agreed. The season got a good amount of laughs from me, but nothing like the earlier/mid seasons. I know they’ve been doing topical episodes forever, but they just don’t hit the way they used to. I’ll still always watch any new season they release but my expectations are much lower than they used to be.
