RICK AND MORTY literally go below the belt with the latest episode about Morty’s sperm. But, I don’t want to beat around the bush in this review. So, here’s my straight-shooting take on the most ridiculous RICK AND MORTY yet.
The theme of season 5 continues to be Morty learning that dishonesty and occasionally being the bad guy like Rick can get you a win. But, unfortunately, this week, Morty’s lie gets him into even more trouble. Rather than just come clean, Morty causes Rick to inadvertently mix his sperm with a horse species known as Chuds. With that, we get some of the best sperm puns ever to make it in an adult cartoon. I’ll never forget that the Grand Canyon is officially “America’s G-Spot.”
The non-blank shooting puns fire every 30 seconds or so, and some characters are left behind to clean up the mess. After last week, audiences got to see Summer share the spotlight, and I was hoping that there would be momentum carrying into tonight’s episode. Sadly, her “Fat P” (P stands for “Plan” here) is shot down, and she becomes a bench warmer with Jerry and Beth.
Watching RICK AND MORTY, it’s not hard to see why even an episode with filler can get a mild thumbs up. The show’s bonkers enough with crazy references, funny one-liners (“Han Job Solo”), and most importantly, Keith David as the President is back!
The latest episode is available on Adult Swim.
