“I am a GOLDEN GOD!!!”
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, brainchild of Rob McElhenney, follows the shenanigans and adventures of the employees of Paddy’s Pub, a perpetually-failing irish pub in Philadelphia, and the colorful cast of characters that somehow find themselves crossing paths. Dennis and Dee Reynolds are sociopathic siblings, their father is Frank Reynolds, a slovenly and boorish man played famously by Danny DeVito, who lives with the “wildcard” Charlie, and series creator McElhenney is the body dysmorphic and homosexual Mac. There are no heroes in this show. Everyone is a villian to varying degrees and between the core cast every major biblical sin is covered at least once. But there’s an odd charm to be found within all this blasphemy.
Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life made its television debut as the ninth episode of the fourth season on October 23, 2008 and is notable for featuring guest-stars Sinbad and Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas. The episode opens with Dennis discovering Charlie has, on his person, his erotic memoirs. Upon questioning from the rest of the gang, Dennis explains how the book contains a tale of redemption told through his many erotic exploits that he hoped to publish someday and unleash on the world “in a fiery blaze of eroticism.”
“I’m a 5-star man!!!”
What words of wisdom can be gleaned from Dennis’ sticky pages? Is there a limit to the depraved things the production team can get Danny DeVito to do? And how do you like your milk-steak cooked? This is Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life, as read by Danny DeVito, on Stories Telling Stories!
