‘Rick and Morty 3×10: The Rickchurian Mortydate’ Review

by Steven Riley

After the incredible end to season two, Rick and Morty had a huge act to follow with the culmination of their third entry. Despite hinting that Evil Morty could become the antagonist as season three draws to a close, the last episode seemed to take a different tact by making Beth finding herself and the […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×09: The ABC’s of Beth’ Review

by Steven Riley

Whether or not season three of Rick and Morty is considered the best one so far or not, it’s difficult to argue it has been the most varied. From the incredible opening episode that resulted in the destruction of the intergalactic governments, Council of Ricks and Beth and Jerry’s manage, the majority of the episodes […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×08: Morty’s Mind Blowers’ Review

by Steven Riley

After a heavy episode last week, Rick and Morty changed up the pace again with a more self-contained, ‘clip show’-style adventure. As Rick himself alludes to at the start, episode eight, ‘Morty’s Mind Blowers’ is the equivalent of the Inter-Dimensional cable from the seasons prior. While the prior two episodes have had some memorable bits, […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×07: The Ricklantis Mixup’ Review

by Steven Riley

SPOILER ALERT: This review contains spoilers for season 3, episode 7 of Rick and Morty. If you have yet to see ‘The Ricklantis Mixup’ we advise you to do so. Now, if possible. Rick and Morty seems to work best when the shows take an ambitious (or ridiculous idea) and just roll with it. Pickle […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×06: Rest and Ricklaxation’ Review

by Steven Riley

As Rick and Morty season three reaches it’s halfway point, we have had already seen the different directions the show can go in… With ‘Pickle Rick’ and ‘Vindicators 3’ we had the more classic Rick and Morty adventures as the writers set up ridiculous yet riotous premises and followed them through with sharp writing and […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×05: The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy’ Review

by Steven Riley

While season three of Rick and Morty has undoubtedly got off to a rollicking start since returning a few weeks ago, it has felt like it’s been missing one thing that made earlier seasons so great – Jerry. While ‘Rickmancing the Stone’ had a few snippets of Morty’s father – the best parts of the episode in […]

Culture Dump #4: How to use ‘Rick and Morty’ quotes in conversation

by Simon Bland

Rick and Morty may have only been around for a few years but it’s already firmly established itself in today’s pop culture lexicon. You can thank Netflix for that. With just two seasons under its belt and a long-awaited third currently being drip-fed to audiences, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s bizarro space comedy has so […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×10: The Wedding Squanchers’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“How long will you be visiting Earth?” The obscene, the banal, and the beloved are the three misshapen legs on which Rick and Morty lurches through life. ‘The Wedding Squanchers’ starts with a wedding invitation and Rick accidentally mailing Jerry across the galaxy and ends with Rick in prison and Earth assimilated by the Federation. It’s […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×09: Look Who’s Purging Now’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Oh, I do some pretty bad stuff.” Rick and Morty has ugly bones. It’s a show predicated on the idea that watching a drunk abuse his grandson across space and time is inherently amusing. This is, unless you’re particularly squeamish about the aforementioned abuse(or gratuitous drool), right on the money. We love to watch the titular […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×08: Interdimensional Cable 2 – Tempting Fate’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“The car always wins.” ‘Rixty Minutes’ was one of season 1′s strongest episodes, a twenty-minute reel of Justin Roiland shouting at himself and improvising with every halt and hesitation left in for the hell of it as the cast of Rick and Morty binged on bizarre interdimensional cable. ‘Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate’ pitches itself as […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×07: Big Trouble in Little Sanchez’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Grandpa’s back, baby!”  The monster in ‘Big Trouble Little Sanchez’ isn’t Coach Feratu. the vampire gym coach who dies off-screen about five minutes in, but the specter of Rick’s looming mortality. Oh, and also Jerry’s inferiority-driven projection of Beth as a cackling xenomorph queen. When Rick decides to switch his mind into the body of […]

‘Rick and Morty 2×06: The Ricks Must Be Crazy’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“So he made a universe, and that guy is from that universe, and that guy made a universe, and that’s the universe where I was born? Where my father died? Where I couldn’t make time for his funeral because I was working…on my universe.” ‘The Ricks Must Be Crazy’ is an object lesson in the […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×05: Get Schwifty’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“It’s possible that we may have been correlating some things that were not related at all.” ‘Get Schwifty’ is a long way from Rick and Morty‘s best, an uneven twenty-odd minutes hewing closer to the tepid satire of South Park than to the show’s signature blend of gonzo adventure, ugly emotion, and I-don’t-give-a-shit alien names. The big-picture government […]

‘Rick and Morty 2×04: Total Rickall’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“We could be infested with these things, so we gotta keep an eye out for any zany, wacky characters that pop up.” ‘Total Rickall’ presents a race of alien parasites who mooch off of their hosts by insinuating themselves into their lives via the creation of false memories. They multiply in the fertile mental territory […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×03: Auto Erotic Assimilation’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“If I wanted to be sober, I wouldn’t have gotten drunk.” One of Rick’s defining traits is his cultivated individuality, a combination of disdain for others and an intense desire to embody his own vision of his personality without limitations. He’s a man who literally passed on joining a club made solely of versions of himself. […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×02: Mortynight Run’

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Oh hi Morty! I’m Krombopulos Michael, I’m an assassin. I buy guns from your grandpa.” Part of Rick And Morty‘s strength as a show is its willingness to grow without changing, to texture what’s already there rather than shake up its characters’ motivations and personalities. Case in point, Rick gives Morty the time-honored experience of learning […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×01: A Rickle in Time’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“If I die in a cage I lose a bet.” Hearing Justin Roiland’s grotesquely burp-punctuated line delivery after a year of Rick And Morty‘s absence from the air feels like being rebaptized in slime at the world’s worst and most exciting revival church. ‘A Rickle in Time,’ no relation to the beloved series of children’s books by […]
