Rick and Morty Season 4 Preview: Jerry's Sci-Fi Free Family Vacation

It's hard to believe that it's been six months and seven episodes, but we've actually come to the penultimate episode of the fourth season of Adult Swim's Rick and Morty.

Our review of this past Sunday's episode of Rick and Morty (link below) praised "The Vat of Acid Episode" (directed by Jacob Hair, and written by Jeff Loveness and Albro Lundy) for taking a hard look at our dimension-hopping duo's pseudo-toxic relationship and their near-total lack of appreciation for the damage that results from their […]

Normally, at this point, we would be covering a behind-the-scenes video or the weekly podcast post mortem on the most recent episode of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's Rick and Morty. Either that, or we would be jumping knee-deep into a sneak preview or two for this Sunday's episode, "Childrick of Mort". But we actually […]

Rick and Morty Engage in Couples Counseling with a Body Count: Review

Speaking of "mutual parasitic relationships", Adult Swim's Rick and Morty is doing something this season that wasn't quite there to this extent in the previous three: a thematic series of episodes. Probably the best way to explain it is that while other shows are concerned about storylines between characters and keeping canon, Dan Harmon and […]

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.

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 […]

Rick and Morty Power Ballad Gives Glory to Glorzo

Written by Jeff Loveness and directed Bryan Newton, Rick and Morty episode "Promortyus" had a double-layered message that was simple, direct, and powerful.

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. Let's just say that "Never Ricking Morty" dumped […]

Mansplaining The Bechdel Test To Rick And Morty Fans

This week saw the return of Rick & Morty to television screens and tonight the UK got it on E4 and the All4 App. Never Ricking Morty was the most self-referencing, up-its-own-arse episode yet, and it was all the better for it. It began by making the show's famous 'Story Train' structure the actual plotline […]

Rick and Morty Should Avoid Those Wet Eggs in Promortyus Preview

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's dimension-hopping duo returned Sunday night with a midseason kick-off that dumped "meta" on its head and reminded viewers that it's not easy trying to keep about eight creative plates spinning at the same time each episode (you can check out our review at the link below).
