Now available on Blu-ray and DVD is FX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: The Complete Season 6. The two disc set contains all twelve episodes of another very funny season, as well as a wealth of extras. The stories in season six tend to run longer than in previous seasons, with some plots stretching for multiple episodes or the entire season. But there are also the shorter adventures more common for the show.
Season six finds the gang getting into some humorous trouble, just as the past five years have. But some of the situations they get into here have lasting consequences. This season begins with most of the gang contemplating marriage after Mac (Rob McElhenney) learns that Carmen (Brittany Daniel) is now a woman, and engaged. Dennis (Glenn Howerton) marries a girl he liked long ago, but soon regrets the decision. Frank (Danny DeVito) and Charlie (Charlie Day) pursue the idea of a gay marriage without sex. None of these work out, and it isn't long before the group reverts to status quo, though Dennis is still stuck playing alimony.
This year, the main characters are looking to better themselves, though those familiar with the series know that is unlikely to ever happen. Dee (Kaitlin Olson) works at a school for a while, and Charlie soon joins her as a janitor. They do okay until they expose the students to their friends, and both are soon out of a job. Dee is also pregnant, but won't say who the father is, driving the guys crazy as they try to figure it out. I'll refrain from spoiling the surprise as the paternity is not revealed until the season finale, but it's unexpected, for sure.
Besides these longer stories, there are some of the stand alone stories that are standard for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. In these episodes, the gang buys a boat, looks for a pool, and gets lost in the woods. Each is humorous in its own right, and there isn't a disappointing entry in this entire season.
Among the many extras included on this release are the expected deleted and extended scenes, bloopers, and four audio commentaries on select episodes. FX has kindly included the "pilot" of Wilfred, to introduce fans of this series to another on the network. There are also three minutes of Jack Kelly's late night legal show.
