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!
As always, our initial review and episode discussion are spoiler-free for first time fans, but we have plenty of in-depth discussion of spoilers and behind the scenes details when we tune into dimension BM-77 at the end of the podcast!
