The ravens come bearing good news… drunken, vulgarity-laden news: the great minds behind Game of Thrones have teamed with the marginally psychotic (yet still great in their own right) minds behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia to bequeath upon the versatile television lover a great gift of small screen entertainment: Thrones creators Damon Benioff and D.B. Weiss have written an episode of It’s Always Sunny, as revealed by the comedy’s creator and star Rob McElhenney on his Twitter account.
We’re not sure if this will result in a Thrones-themed Sunny ep (it wouldn’t be beyond the realm of possibility for the Paddy’s Pub gang to tackle the vast theme), or just a regular half hour teaming with some deep, dynamic themes. But whatever it is, it’s something for which we are very excited.
Imagine a world where it is always sunny, even when winter is coming. Imagine the Hound chowing down on milk steak and jelly beans, Charlie Kelly instituting bird law on three-eyed ravens, infomercials for Dragon Mittens. A Reynolds almost never pays his debts, but we still think the two shows will sync up quite nicely.
