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.]]''

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** In "Charlie and Dee Find Love", what seems to be one of the few benevolent moments in Dennis' character arc, he keeps an eye on Charlie's budding relationship for fear that the rich girl Charlie met is using him for some cruel prank, when it turns out she honestly loved Charlie, and Charlie was actually using ''her'' as part of an underhanded plan to get with the Waitress.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqH8yCcMoSE The lyrics to Night Man]] (the second half of them, anyway) sound like an account of someone (possibly Charlie, since he did write the song) getting molested in his sleep by a man who broke into his room. It has been lampshaded.

* {{Asexuality}}: Although Charlie shows sexual attraction towards women in the show, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OG3xRol51qI a deleted scene]] implies that he is asexual, feeling physically ill at the mere thought of sex with anyone except [[SingleTargetSexuality the waitress]].

* YouImaginedIt: So did Dennis meet Sinbad and Rob Thomas or not due his injury in "Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life"?

* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Almost becomes a RunningGag. While we know from his introduction that Rickety Cricket went to high school with the Gang, later episodes gradually reveal that a sizable chunk of the supporting cast did as well, and the Gang are simply too self-centered to remember. This reaches its apex in "The High School Reunion", which is a ContinuityCalvacade featuring every character previous stated to be a classmate.
