Christmas, "Sunny"-style

The gang from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" has never taken the politically correct route in five seasons on FX. So don't expect any warm and fuzzy holiday memories when Dennis, Mac, Charlie, Dee and Frank gather for "It's a Very Sunny Christmas," out on DVD today for around $26.

Based on this preview (which isn't suitable for our blog because of language, ahem, among other things), Dennis and Dee still harbor resentment over Frank's habit of buying Christmas presents they wanted for himself. Meanwhile, Mac talks about his family tradition of stealing neighborhood Christmas gifts, while Charlie gets into it with Santa, presumably because of his mom's heavy drinking.

Oh, and a naked, sweaty Danny DeVito is also prominently featured.

Thought a bit steep in price for a 40-minute special, the DVD should be worth it based on "Sunny's" revival this season. Not that the show became unbearable or anything, but from "Kitten Mittons," Frank's intervention, Gail the Snail, the Birds of War and last week's amazing Dennis and Mac break-up, this season, if not the best, is certainly the most inspired.

So break out the riot nog and milksteak. It's Christmas, "Sunny"-style.
