The show follows a group of friends, regularly called "the gang", which consists of Dennis Reynolds, Deandra "Sweet Dee" Reynolds, Charlie Kelly, and Mac. They run Paddy's Pub, a struggling South UsefulNotes/{{Philadelphia}} Irish-themed dive bar. Dennis is the vain prep from a rich family. Dee is his shallow, shrill, and insecure sister. Charlie is the high-strung idiot savant who is obsessed with [[NoNameGiven the]] [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep waitress]] at a coffee shop. Mac is the [[MilesGloriosus wanna-be bruiser]] forever stuck in adolescence. In the second season, Danny [=DeVito=] joins the cast as Dennis and Dee's neglectful father Frank, a shady businessman who is drawn to the gang's depraved lifestyle.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: In "Mac and Charlie Die" (part 1) the two characters attempt to destroy a car with a hand grenade. It doesn't even come close, as hand grenades are for anti-personnel purposes, not high-yield explosives.
--> '''Mac''': "That's what grenades do!?!"
** They then buy a handgun and try to ShootTheFuelTank, which they are stunned to see has no effect other than leaving a few bullet holes in the car body.

The show goes to great lengths in bringing the UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist to new highs/lows. The three-guys-[[TheSmurfettePrinciple one-girl]] structure and selfish characters have led many critics to compare the show to ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', and was frequently called "''Seinfeld'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on crack]]" by critics.

critics. Put it this way: If Seinfeld featured amusing [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerks,]] It's Always Sunny features legitimately ''[[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk terrible people.]]''

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: Dennis' diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder doesn't make sense. Symptoms of BPD include problems with regulating emotions and thoughts, impulsive and reckless behavior, and unstable relationships with other people. None of these apply to Dennis, who is the coolest and most responsible member of the group and has maintained relationships with the gang since at least high school. Given that Dennis is frequently shown to be charming, manipulative, meticulous and without emotion or empathy, as well as suffering breakdowns whenever his ego is challenged, he's more likely to have Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
