“Off the Clock” is our weekly premium show where we talk about all the TV we’ve been watching in our free time. One episode per month is also dedicated to discussion of topics voted on by our Patreon supporters.
I think it’s safe to say, based on the tone of the discussion, this is the episode everyone has been waiting for. CONTINUITY BABY! I suppose it could have been disappointing if you were holding out hope for a live-action episode starring Xtopher Lloyd, but it answers a lot of questions that we’ve had for seasons now and sets up some truly interesting possibilities for the future of Rick and Morty. Check out the podcast to hear us discuss them.
This is definitely the first part of a two-part season finale, but it sneaks up on you thanks to a pretty engaging plot involving Rick replacing Morty with a couple of crows. Personally, I think I’d rather have seen the “Half a Paul Giamatti” episode, but I enjoyed this one nonetheless. Check out the podcast to hear our thoughts.
Here’s the continuity you’ve been looking for. We finally deal with the tragedy of Rick’s artificially preserved best friend, Birdperson in an episode loosely based on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check out the podcast to hear us hypothesize about the canon implications of this episode, among other things, and join us back here during the week of September 5th for the back-to-back airing of the final two season 5 episodes.
Oh boy, the community is divided over this episode. Turns out, so is our podcast. Join us for a discussion of S05E07 “Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion” which is either a perfect example of why the haters don’t deserve anymore Rick and Morty or a perfect example of why the latest season is complete crap, depending on which type of toxic fan you are.
Rick and Morty take on Turkey Day by getting into the holiday spirit quite a bit more literally than most of us. Join us for Thanksgiving in July with our podcast for season 5, episode 6, “Ricky & Morty’s Thanksploitation Spectacular”.
It’s debatable who’s raising more hell this week, Rick’s joyriding car or the cenobites who are feeding off of Jerry’s cringe. We’re mixed on this episode but where we do agree is that it’s definitely better than the last one. Check out the podcast for more thoughts on Amortycan Grickfitti.
The internet is cursing this episode for a whole bunch of reasons. They don’t think it was funny, It had little-to-no continuity with the rest of the series, and they apparently find the concept of incest babies extremely offensive. Check out the podcast to find out what we thought.
People are doing their due diligence but, unlike Earth’s supply of aluminum, there might not be much to mine from this episode as far as the Rick and Morty canon goes. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t enjoyable though. Join us for discussions about teenage angst, eco-terorrism, and gay sex with your father on this week’s Pickle Me This podcast.
