I'm still watching this, although I'm taking it very slow. Just finished the second season! It's very hit and miss for me tbh, but overall I do enjoy it.

 

Meanwhile Patrick Rothfuss posted on his blog today, he is writing a R&M D&D Crossover Comic:

Even though playing games is typically how Rick and Morty end up putting the multiverse in jeopardy, the dimension-hopping duo are about to embark upon the journey of their lives with the help of a tabletop classic. This August, IDW and Oni Press are partnering to publish a four-issue, limited series from writers Patrick Rothfuss and Jim Zub, with illustrations from Troy Little, where Rick and Morty will get sucked into the world of Dungeons & Dragons.

 

When D&D becomes the hot new thing at Morty’s school, Rick reasons that the best way for his grandson to learn how the game works is to live it, so he transports himself and his entire family into a world of magic, mayhem, and orcs. In a public statement, Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicle) expressed his elation at having the opportunity to mash up two of his favorite properties for the first time:

“That’s some serious you-got-chocolate-in-my-peanut butter $#!& right there. I’m in. I’m all the way in. I’m gettin’ that chocolate all up in the peanut butter. Like, deep in. All the way in. It’s going to be sticky and delicious.”

 

Though the miniseries—which is set to include character sheets—is sure to be all kinds of wild and fun, what’ll be interesting to see is how the creative team uses Rick and Morty’s signature nihilistic energy to pick apart the things about Dungeons & Dragons culture that can get a little weird and uncomfortable. IDW and Oni Press’ crossover series—which doesn’t seem to have a title yet, weirdly—hits stores this August.

'Trembling, he put his hand on her glowing Elven thigh, his mouth wet with anticipation.'

 

I can keep doing this all day, even though just writing that one sentence made me feel a little ill. Just in case Rothfuss pops his head in here looking for a ghostwriter.

Holy shit.

 

I mean, it makes a ton of sense. It's one of the highest rated shows on cable, you see merchandise everywhere, presumably a big order let's them make it more efficiently and reduces time between seasons, it keeps the creative team locked up and avoids messy salary renegotiations in future and 70 episodes gets them into syndication where the big money is. I suspect the show has probably peaked creatively and ratings-wise and such a big order probably won't help either.

 

But holy shit.

70 episodes was a surprise - if not a bit excessive. I thought it was already running out of steam in season 3. 

 

They have just over 30 episodes, and a show typically needs over 100 to be sold in syndication.

If there were ever a show that felt like it rendered syndication irrelevant, it'd be this. It has to be the most online-audience-centric show to date.

I'm not the biggest fan of Rick & Morty, it's very hit-and-miss in my eyes, but I recently watched Pickle Rick and came here to say that I really enjoyed it in its utter insanity and I want all episodes to be like that. Thanks for reading.
