The team behind Promortyus got together for the Rick and Morty Companion Podcast to discuss the episode and take questions from listeners.

Rick and Morty Team Talk Promortyus, Show Not All Podcasts Are Boring

We've reached that point in the week where we begin to transition from discussing last week's episode of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's Rick and Morty and into looking at the next one. But before we get to shine our bright spotlight on our deadly duo's adventures with acid pits in the appropriately-titled "The Vat […]

Rick and Morty: Dan Harmon, Ep Writer and Director Talk Promortyus

After the midseason opener of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's Rick and Morty left our eyes bleeding just a little bit, Sunday's "Promortyus" delivered a simple, direct, and powerful message to the viewers: Rick and Morty (as well as Summer, Beth, and Jerry) might be the most destructive force in all of the show's multidimensional […]

Promortyus Unleashed Shock and Awe That Is Rick and Morty: Review

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's Rick and Morty was clearly ready to move on from last week's midseason uber-meta, fifth wall-shattering return. Written by Jeff Loveness and directed Bryan Newton, "Promortyus" had a double-layered message that was simple, direct, and powerful. If last week was about exposing viewers to the storytelling difficulties that come with […]


Rick and Morty Season 4 Preview: There's Nothing Duct Tape Can't Do

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's dimension-hopping duo kicked-off their midseason return with an episode of Rick and Morty that still has us debating what's canon, what's not canon, where the show's heading from this point forward and if any of us really know who we are anymore.

Westworld Season 3 Passed Pawn Review: Truth-Revealing Endgame Begins

This is it, Westworld fans: we are down to the penultimate episode of the third season. Next Sunday's episode will be the finale, and I cannot wait to see how the plan unfolds at the very end to wipe out the blight that is humanity. If you're not caught up, I highly recommend doing so […]

"Better Call Saul" Preview ("JMM"): Kim Comes Clean, Jimmy Gets Dirtier

Out of respect for the Better Call Saul fans out there who haven't done a deep dive into this week's episode, I'll keep this preview intro as vague and spoiler-free as I possibly can. Kim (Rhea Seehorn) – and in some ways, Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) – learned the hard way that there's no such thing […]

"Kidding" Season 2 "The Acceptance Speech"/"A Seat on the Rocket": Tyler the Creator's Cornell Explains Why "Compassionate Deceptions" Aren't Lies [PREVIEW]

Jim Carrey, Michel Gondry, and Dave Holstein's critically-acclaimed Showtime series Kidding is down to its final two weeks/four episodes – which brings two things to mind. First, we can't shake this feeling that the Jeff (Carrey)-Deidre (Catherine Keener)-Seb (Frank Langella) dynamic end up the same as it was last season when the dust settle on […]
