It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 7, Episode 2 – ‘The Gang Goes to the Jersey Shore’ Review

This week the gang gets out of Philly and heads to America’s most famous shoreline – Jersey. Inspired by talk of a childhood trip (sparked by Frank burning family photos) Dennis and Dee convince the gang to road trip it to the boardwalk and while they end up not having the greatest of times, Frank, Mac, and Charlie all manage to make the trip worthwhile.

DON’T swim to Europe.

We basically split into 3 groups…

Group 1 – Mac, Frank, and the Rum Ham: Determined to kick back and relax, Mac finds a nice spot on the (Toxic) beach and Frank supplies the day’s rations in the form of a ham soaked in Rum. However once accosted by a pack of wild dogs, they decide the best course of action is to hop in a raft and sit afloat, taunting the dogs. Things are going great until they both fall asleep on the inflatable raft…

While this is happening, Charlie, Dennis, and Dee take a stroll on the boardwalk, and eventually UNDER the boardwalk, where Dennis received his first kiss as a child. Well there is a different kind of romance rocking under there now – 2 old gay bums having the buttsex. It’s about this time that the trio split up, Charlie forsaking Dennis for leading him to the sodomy.

Group 2 – Dennis and Dee: After Charlie bolts the siblings begin a night that is sure not to be forgotten. After a freak accident on a carnival ride, they meet a lovely young woman at the hospital whom invites them out for the evening…

Group 3 – Charlie and the Waitress: In what I initially thought was a hallucination spawned by the massive amounts of Sun Block Charlie was drinking, the Waitress shows up to find Mr. Day alone on the beach. She proceeds to be quite civil to him…

After this, we are introduced to a montage that would make a Rocky movie jealous, as Dennis and Dee’s night takes a turn for the worse. And while I don’t want to ruin it, I can say that this night was bad even by their standards. Charlie and the Waitress however have a lovely moonlit and romantic evening, and Mac and Frank change their tune on Jersey when they’re picked up by a boat of guidos…

Overall, the episode wasn’t among their best, but the montage was brilliant. And for that, I’ll give it a 3/5

One thought on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 7, Episode 2 – ‘The Gang Goes to the Jersey Shore’ Review”

  1. Nice review, I think I probably would have rated this one a 4/5 but I may be a bit biased because I love just about anything that pokes some fun at Jersey Shore. This is shaping up to be an overall great season though, I was a bit worried after last season was just kind of so-so. I feel kind of bad for DirecTV’s customers though, since they’ll probably be losing FX soon. I’m glad to be an employee and subscriber of DISH Network where we have a long-term contract with Fox and are always adding on to the services (like the Blockbuster Movie Passs for instance). I can see a lot of angry DirecTV customers looking elsewhere soon.
