'Game of Throne's Writers Pen 'It's Always Sunny' Episode, But What If It Was the Other Way Around?
If you think the gang has gone to some dark sadistic places, just wait until Wednesday night’s episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It’s been written by the folks behind Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. That’s right, television’s most depraved comedy and most violent/naked drama have joined forces. How exactly did this mash-up happen? According to an interview with the New York Times, the GoT writers were fans of the show and Always Sunny’s Rob McElhenney is “a sadist and likes to watch drama writers crash and burn.” Sure, it takes a lot of talent to adapt an epic book series with intricate intertwining plotlines… but it takes a special talent to invent something like Kitten Mittens. Oh man, we can’t wait to see where this episode goes.
It seems like an unlikely pairing, but then, when you come to think of it the shows do share a few key themes: Scheming parents, unnatural sibling love (Dee and Dennis never go as far as Cersei and Jaime,but they certainly meddle), violence (gun-happy & karate-happy vs stab-happy and torture-happy), and yelling, ever so much yelling. Here at Bustle, we’d like to see what might happen if the tables turned and the Always Sunny gang took a crack at some past GoT episodes. Here’s our look at the mash-up that is It’s Always Sunny in Westeros.
