From the very starting, the “It’s Always Sunny” creators took an uncompromising strategy to their comedy. They didn’t think they’d last very long on the air within the early seasons, so that they had nothing to lose — particularly earlier than the actors had real-life tasks like youngsters and mortgages.
“We determined from fairly early on that we weren’t going be certain by the conventional legal guidelines of tv,” Howerton recalled in a 2015 interview with Vice. “By the time we bought to season 3, I keep in mind having a particular dialog with the fellows the place […] our angle was like, ‘Any minute the present’s gonna get canceled, so f*** it, let’s have a look at how far we are able to go along with these characters — let’s have a look at how far we are able to push them.'”
Even nonetheless, the aim of the present has at all times been to satirize and poke enjoyable at its characters, to not condone them. Howerton admits that the collection creators have gotten higher at making their messaging clear over time.
“I do not assume we had been fairly nearly as good at this within the early seasons … making it clear that the writers of the present aren’t saying that this habits is humorous as a result of we prefer it and we stand by it,” says Howerton. “It’s humorous as a result of it is so terrible, and it is precisely what you are not purported to do.”
It would possibly step over the road at occasions, however the purpose of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” has at all times been strikingly clear — it is a important satire, by means of and thru.
