Rob McElhenny on Season 4 of 'Sunny'

With Arrested Development long canceled, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has taken the throne as the best comedy on television. Equipped with biting wit, social relevancy and the subtle humor rarely found in today's world of sitcoms, it's garnered a cult audience over the course of its three seasons.

Even still, despite the show's critical acclaim, I'm often chastised for my claim that Sunny is the best comedy on TV and among the best ever. Luckily hot on the heels of the news FX has reupped with Sunny for 13 more episodes, creator Rob McElhenny sat down with Entertainment Weekly for an insightful Q&A in which he does a great job of describing some of the qualities that make Sunny supremely superior to almost everything else on TV (think South Park):

We never try to push the envelope for the sake of pushing the envelope, which we think is just lame. And you can see it coming a mile away. Anybody can be outrageous. There's a certain subtlety we hope comes across. And our number one goal is to make people laugh.

A lot of people think we're just doing d--k jokes.... What we are doing is presenting both sides of the argument and poking fun and poking holes in all of them. Take on the abortion issue or the gun control issue — we hope it's a comedic take, ultimately, but that it has some kind of social relevance.
McElhenny also dishes the dirt on some upcoming storylines:
We're going to do something with the tax rebates that everyone's going to be getting this summer. We're going to jump on it by giving out Paddy's coupons, which are essentially $100 rebates that we mail to everybody and they can come in and use their Paddy's dollars, but then we don't redeem them at all. We force them to use American dollars.

[Another] thing we're thinking about here is Dee [Kaitlin Olson] finds out she's pregnant and wants to give the baby up a la Juno. So it's all about trying to find the right couple, and then moving in with the couple and having the couple just basically pay all her bills and give her a car and a place to live and just taking advantage of the couple's generosity.

I want to do an episode about how Dee winds up having what she thinks is a heart attack, and she ends up taking Lipitor, or some kind of heart attack medicine, and we all recognize that what we need to do is get medicated as quickly as possible for anything that ails us.

We really want Frank degenerating even further. We see our characters not really changing over the course of the entire series, but he drops one rung lower on the ladder each week. By the end of it he's just going to be a puddle of goo.
As they've only just begun breaking stories, it's going to be a long wait. Here's hoping a fresh batch of Lipitor can help alleviate the wait.
