Critic Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 13

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

Early installments certainly suggest that the show is reaching for freshness through topicality and self-examination.

Season 13 proves McElhenney, Day, and Howerton aren't out of ideas; the formula they've established still works beautifully, and allows them to stretch as far as their creativity demands.

The season isn't bad, per se, but with It's Always Sunny's impeccable track record, even the most tentative of missteps constitutes a massive fall in quality.

Nov 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This was a clear tonal shift and I didn't expect such beauty or emotional heft.

Nov 9, 2018 | Full Review…

After thirteen years on the air, the show continues to push buttons and boundaries.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

They're terrible at expressing their feelings of pain, resentment, and loneliness, which ends up manifesting as sociopathy. It's great for comedy, and Sunny never loses sight of that. But it's also been weirdly great for pathos.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Always Sunny is off to a strong start now that it's proven that it can still pull off twists after more than a decade on the air.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Sunny is almost like psychological field notes. It has developed this extremely unhealthy group dynamic to such a degree that watching all the members interact is one hell of a potent experience.

[It] brings the show's progress to a juncture that markedly resembles square one. Lucky number thirteen is to be a season of change...

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

...that, really, has been Always Sunny's magic since the beginning. The Gang is the perfect stand-in for any issue the writers want because their toxicity is both the joke and the punchline.

Sep 6, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Always Sunny is a finely calibrated balance scale, where the week's triumphs for some come at the precise measure of the others' crushing humiliations, and the Gang's intertwined madness is snarled beyond individual or group redemption.

Top Critic

'The Gang Makes Paddy's Great Again' is proof the show's still pretty great after so many seasons, but it gets extra points for finding a darkly funny solution to the show's Dennis problem - one that proved not to be much of a problem at all.

Audience Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 13

    Consistent and different at the same time. No better show out there.
  • Oct 03, 2019
    The character of the show has lost so much of what made it funny and unique from the first half of the seasons that it has gotten stale. The show has attempted to counter that staleness but those attempts have fallen flat and caused the show to lose its core elements. Further, the characters have become exaggerated and uninteresting caricatures of themselves. The subtle aspects of the characters have become so over blown they are not funny. Rather it gives the characters a less naturally comedic feel.

    It's amazing that after 13 seasons, the show still hasn't slowed down. The writing remains topical and creative. They are still pushing boundaries and it's a good as it ever was.
  • Aug 16, 2019
    Again, this series is far more political than in the past. Sexism and toxic masculinity, gender identity and the LGBT struggle are all challenged. As I said previously, the show is morally correct to tackle these issues. The results are also amazing, and still hilarious. The famous ending to the series is also a genuinely beautiful and effecting scene.

    Just really great stuff, with a surprising and lovely end
  • Jul 13, 2019
    Season 13 is a hot pile of garbage.
  • Jul 03, 2019
    By far the worst season. Phoned in and half baked. Boo.
  • Jan 15, 2019
    An unfortunate failure in terms of comedy. Season 13 does not deliver humour to the same degree as it’s prevuous seasons, deciding to push messages upon the viewers rather than continue its unabashed politically incorrect comedy that had previously worked so well for the characters. A sad but expected demise for the show.

    It's awful, I love this show and has only gotten better each season except for this, the should have just ended it after season 12
  • Dec 22, 2018
    A lot of the episodes seemed forced in my opinion, and the season went downhill from the strong first episode it started off with.
