It seems our favorite shit storm of a comedy show has spread well far past their home of Philadelphia.
In May of 2014, the Russian adaption of our favorite show titled В Москве всегда солнечно (It’s Always Sunny in Moscow) was released in Russia with 16 episodes. The show is basically a near shot-for-shot of Always Sunny, which is especially cool for the fans all the way out in Russia.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but if I had to guess which character is which, I’d have to say (from left to right): Waitress (prettier version), Dee (less bird looking version), The Five Star Man, Charlie, Mac, Frak and Bonnie maybe? I don’t know, don’t hold me to that.
When put into Google Translate the actual show name reads “In Moscow Always Sunny” which is created by “Rob MakElhenni, Glenn Houertonom and Charlie Dai”.
And if that isn’t enough for you, in the show their bar is named “Philadelphia”. Forreal. Noice.
Here is the description of Sergei Kovalev, the Russian version of Dennis;
Sergei differs from the other characters in the series that he is fantastically in love with himself, constantly repeats that he gorgeous body, eyes, hair, a straight-narcissus daffodil! He is probably the most cunning of the characters – periodically manipulating their environment. But he, like others, tends to very mediocre things: sex, money and some straightforward values. Any personal supergoal neither he nor the other characters do not. And so, perhaps, they have never received anything.”
Due to Russian censorship laws, unfortunately most of the original show’s risque moments had to be cut due to Russian viewer’s complaints (what a bunch of jabronis). Though the show may not compete with the original, it still seems to go over well with the Russian crows.
When the description of the show is translated it reads;
Strong friendship, true love, idealism, nobility and dignity, humility and kindness – all this has nothing to do with the heroes of the series ‘In Moscow Always Sunny.’ Four young heroes: Sergei Kovalev and Alain, Maxim Borisenko and Roman Makarov. They went to school together. They have their own business — a pub ‘Philadelphia.’ But revenue it almost does not work. All their hopes and plans — love and money — are crumbling, when confronted with reality.
I’ll go ahead and add the trailer here so you guys can check it out. What would you guys think about a crossover episode?
