Monopoly: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia | Award Winning FX Sitcom, 2-6 players
About this deal
Rob McElhenny plays Mac as a guy with boyish enthusiasm and an easily bruised ego, which is a big part of what's kept that character (and his pals) from seeming irredeemably, unwatchably awful. "Mac Day" is both a celebration and explanation of Sunny's karate-loving, Christian fundamentalist, repressed homosexual man-child. When the Paddy's crew has to spend the whole day doing whatever their bartender wants, they're initially annoyed. Then Mac's badass country cousin (played by Seann William Scott) rides into town, and we get a demonstration of how martial arts and incessant drunkenness can be cool when practiced by someone who's not trying so hard.

Hence, Charlie is exiled from the bar and gets a job as a high school janitor, while Mac and Dennis find their boyhood buddy Schmitty (played by Jason Sudeikis) and try to make him their new Charlie. Some of the best Sunnys contrast the gang's lifestyle with what normal people do, and that's what happens here, as Schmitty upends the whole Paddy's dynamic just by asking one very simple question: "Why?"

Long time creep, first time poster. My best friend’s birthday is coming up and I am looking for IASIP gift recommendations. My country ISP is in the process of running fiber, as most are. I have now been calling for 2 and a half years to see when fiber would be run. 2 weeks ago they ran a fiber trunk from their office to the nearest town which runs right in front of my house. They now say it will take another 14 months before that trunk line is operational and can provide fiber to my house!
Recent seasons of IASIP, like the revival seasons of Futurama, contain some recycling but also still quite a lot of originality, cleverness and inventive humor. This episode had some recycling in it, too -- a lot of the jokes were well-tread material, like Mac's desperate need to be loved by his mom and Dee's obsession with making it in comedy. But it also deftly executed fourth-wall jokes in rapid succession in a way that did not have to be understood to be enjoyed. That's key: whether you see it as fourth-wall humor or not, the show works equally well. It's basically two shows for the price of one. Three, if you count Old Lady House. These “internet dark age” years lead me to the conclusion that ISPs are monopolies operating in America illegally, and nobody seems to care. Let’s take a look at a new subdivision for example. If ISP1 agrees with the land developer to provide their services to every single house, there is sometimes an agreement that keeps other ISPs out for a certain time. That sounds like a violation of the anti trust agreements to me. In my humble opinion, if the ISPs shared the cabling I believe this would go a long way to stop the monopolies. The internet connects the world, but the ISPs keep the neighborhoods segregated. If there was a way that a connected house could choose their provider, then when the homeowners or renters decide that ISP doesn’t have good customer support, they could cancel and call another, merely needing to swap ISP hardware such as modems.

I saw someone post about the new monopoly game, which I am considering. I’d be curious to hear if anyone has other suggestions. He lives in Philly so if there’s a sewer tour or otherwise relevant Philly experience that I could gift, that would also work.
You might be asking yourself, why does any of this even matter? It matters because I’ve had to work with several ISPs, some personally, others professionally. There are ISPs out there that have such low customer service numbers they seem truly terrified of something like this and would most likely be willing to risk just about everything to keep their monopoly alive because without it, they wouldn’t have a business.
