S01E11 – Ricksy Business

Beth and Jerry take a cruise aboard the doomed steam ship Titanic in this season one finale of Rick and Morty, “Ricksy Business”. You’ll never believe this, but they’re not on the same page about enjoying their time together. Meanwhile Rick and Beth take advantage of the lack of parental oversight by throwing a pan-dimensional rager, despite the penalty for doing so being no more Rick and Morty. That leaves the Mort-man doing damage control, and I’m not saying he’s super successful, but you know, there is a season two in existence. Heck, we’ll start covering it tomorrow!

S01E09 – Something Ricked This Way Comes

Rick does battle with the Devil in Rick and Morty episode S01E09, “Something Ricked This Way Comes”. As far as we know, Georgia was not involved, thought I do remember seeing a fiddle. Meanwhile, Jerry’s intellectual insecurity entangles him into some sketchy inner-dwarf-planet politics. As always, our initial review and episode discussion are spoiler-free for first time…

S01E08 – Rixty Minutes

Grab a big bowl of Strawberry Smiggles, because it’s time for Inter-dimensional cable! “Rixty Minutes” is another signature Rick and Morty episode. You can’t go wrong with locking some talented improv artists in a recording booth and then having amazing animators bring whatever comes out of their mouth to life. And the B-plot brings a lot of of dark emotional truths to the Smith family.  

S01E07 – Raising Gazorpazorp

Rick and Morty has a lot to say about parenting and matriarchy in “Raising Gazorpazorp”. And the crude, repulsive creature that is the teenage boy. We debate the propriety and validity of the comedy built around the feminist utopia depicted here, because we figure the whole world can’t wait to hear what two dudes think about it. Plus, we brush up on our Latin and get Biblical to decipher important texts!

S01E06 – Rick Potion #9

There are many times you’ll watch Rick and Morty and your jaw drops, and what can you say but, “bruh”? “Rick Potion #9” is one of those times! We talk a good deal about how much we love this episode and the ethics and morality of inter-dimensional travel in particular. And what does it say about the Smith family that they thrive in an Armageddon scenario?
