How to watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia online
Ever since Netflix first launched in Australia, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been one of the biggest gaps in every streaming library that launched subsequently. Despite being one of the longest-running and most consistent comedies on television, Aussie viewers have been denied access to Paddy’s Pub for years.
Now, in 2020, Amazon Prime Video has finally paid the troll toll, adding seasons 1 to 13 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia to its library of TV shows.

What is It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia?
Each episode of It’s Always Sunny Philadelphia details the misdeeds of four owners of a dingy Irish Bar, Paddy’s Pub, and their illegitimate/legitimate(?) father, Frank Reynolds (Danny Devito like you’ve never seen him).
Privileged siblings Dennis and Dee Reynolds, self-appointed Sheriff of Paddy’s Mac, and maintenance man/glue huffer Charlie Kelly are joined by Devito’s Frank Reynolds, in the gang’s perpetual downward spiral.
The gang’s hare-brained money-making schemes start as well-intentioned projects with disastrous results, but over 13 seasons, all good intentions are thrown to the wind, as the gang resorts to backstabbing, drug-dealing, and underage alcohol service, just to make a dime. On paper, that plot sounds more depressing than Requiem for a Dream, but Sunny always manages to keep the laughs rolling over all 13 seasons. It won’t agree with anyone who struggles to stomach the cringe comedy of shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, but the show’s long streaks of degenerate behaviour make its rare nuggets of positivity all the more valuable.
