The title might be spoofing, NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, but thanks to a pair of “Voice Ovarians,” this episode has more to do with GOODFELLAS and CASINO than that over-hyped anime classic.
I wish I could say I was all for “Go Team Gotron,” but sadly, I’m not. Season five has pumped up the action so much that it’s hard to keep up with all the references stuffed into just 22 minutes of television. Yet, what’s sorely lacking is the actual comedy. There are a couple of solid “hehe’s,” but I am not enjoying myself. It’s nowhere near the disaster that was Dan Harmon’s last season of COMMUNITY, but I’m afraid the show is starting to drift aimlessly in space towards that.
At one point, Morty states, “Sometimes, enough is enough.” I couldn’t have said it better. I’ve had enough of the over-the-top action, and I’m ready to be hit in the feels like this show used to do. And if that fails, maybe it’s time to take that trip to “Boob World?”
The latest episode is available on Adult Swim.
