Jim and A.Ron talk about toxicity and being the best version of yourself in episode 6 of Rick and Morty season 3, “Rest and Ricklaxation”. We’re then joined by Matt Brady, author of The Science of Rick and Morty, to discuss life, the multi-verse theory, and everything! As always, our initial review and episode discussion…
In this episode of Rick and Morty, Jim and A.Ron talk about The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy, and a few conspiracies of their own. They were joined on this podcast by Paul Vigna, reporter at the Wall Street Journal.
In this episode, Jim and A.Ron discuss Morty’s tenth free adventure that he uses to help save the world, or at least stop Worldender, with the Vindicators.
Jim and A.Ron discuss the breakout hit of Rick and Morty season 3, “Pickle Rick”. Aside from inspiring the name of our podcast, it boasts insane action and writing as sharp as an x-acto knife. Then Rolling Stone’s chief TV critic, Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), joins us to discuss therapy in the Golden Age of Television,…
“Rickmancing the Stone” finds Rick and Morty (ft. Summer) working through their family drama with the help of wanton violence in a post-apocalyptic Mad Maxeqsue wasteland. Aaron Couch joins us from THR’s Heat Vision ‘blog to talk blood domes, divorced dads, and which sci-fi/fantasy tropes are ripe for the Rick and Morty picking!
Our season three coverage of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty starts of with a bang as we break down “The Rickshank Rickdemption”. This episode is truly a marvel of both comedy and plotting; Rick manages to escape a high security prison, cripple his rival Ricks in the Citadel while destroying the Galactic Federation, and for dessert, oust Jerry from his own family as part of a 100 year plot to bring back Schezuan sauce to McDonalds. To do justice to it, we’ve brought in MST3K’s own Jonah Ray to share his own connection to R&M, thoughts on “The Rickshank Rickdemption”, as well as a cautionary tale about scooter rentals. You might also be interested in his new project, “You Can’t Call Me Al”, a Weird Al cover album. Check it out, it’s a jam!
Jim, A.Ron, and Cecily share their final thoughts on Amazon’s superhero subversion The Boys (00:00:00) then discuss the final episode of Hulu’s Harlots, as well as the prospects for a fourth seasons (00:23:34).
Harlots continues it’s back-half swoon as things continue to not make much sense, and we’re left with too few characters we genuinely care about. Sure, Lady Fitz’s impulsive kiss of Nancy was exciting, but there are two many things happening because of happenstance, chance encounters, and nothing really feels like it has consequences. There is one…
A.Ron and Cecily converse about another crazy episode of Hulu’s Harlots. Isaac gets pinched, Kate gets her second chance to make a first impression, Quigley is still getting the hang on this whole “loving people” deal, and Margaret does what Margaret does best; try to get herself and her loved ones killed in complicated revenge schemes!
Dark, blurred-out, glowy-eyed, long-nosed, periphery-dwelling, time-eating, toothy, grinning demons infiltrate Legion this week for possibly the creepiest and most horrific episode yet. Innovative, emotional, tragic, triumphant, and trippy as ever.
