For outstanding, outrageous, and outlandish humor, look no further than FX’s Thursday night lineup. Whereas NBC’s vaunted “Must See TV” Thursday night lineup features feel-good sitcoms with warm, fuzzy messages attached to shows such as “Parks and Rec” and “The Office,” “It’s Always Sunny…” and “The League” eschew any semblance of morality in favor of showcasing degenerate personalities consistently undermining each other. While one may wish to have friends and co-workers similar to those on “Parks and Rec” and “The Office” in reality, it’s the characters of “It’s Always Sunny…” and “The League” who are much more entertaining on television. This week’s episodes on FX held up well compared to earlier ones. “It’s Always Sunny…” does its best work when any member of the gang approaches a sacred cow (religion, politics, etc.) from a naive or overconfident perspective. This past week, Mac visits a priest to absolve him not of his own sins, but rather of the sins others have brought upon him, namely gluttony. This whole season, viewers have wondered why Mac has appeared unabashedly corpulent–a dare perhaps, utter laziness maybe? Mac’s sin as it has always been is not gluttony, but rather vanity. Flashback several weeks to when Mac was thin (and decidedly more youthful). Paddy’s Pub experiences some good fortune when the bar becomes popular and denizens flood in, overwhelming the gang. Mac and Dee see this development as an opportunity to hire a new employee to handle the increased clientele. Enter Mac’s dream bartender: a bulked up version of himself. Hatching a plan to get as buff as the prospective hire, Mac does what any aspiring muscleman does: gorge on fatty foods! However, the beauty of the episode is that the viewer is unaware that is going on. The rest of the gang is blissfully going about their own self-delusional pipedreams (Dennis perfecting his own over medicated image, Dee and her awful jokes, and Charlie with an obsession for poorly practiced mixology). Finally come the end of the episode, Mac appears, announcing he has reached his hefty 200 lbs. target. Hefty indeed–one almost forgot how offputting the sight of fat Mac is. Despite plenty of laughs, including wonderful banter between present fat Mac and the priest, the episode had an odd, uncomfortable feel to it, as if Frank was the only character not caught up in this strange flashback. For Mac’s sake, he should lose the weight and get back to doing what he does best: scheme with Dennis. For the rest of the gang, one hopes they mock Mac’s disgusting weight gain and milk it for all it’s worth. It’s not going to be there forever.
