After the jaw-dropping UNMORTRICKEN, RICK AND MORTY returns to normalcy with a clip show in the form of a cosmic beam. While the plot mechanism to create the clip show is clever, there isn’t much here except for some fun action sequences and minor chuckles.
Some of my favorite quotes this week:
- “It’s okay to lie when you are fighting multiple sclerosis.”
- “Don’t grift a grifter.”
- “So, by your logic, 9/11 was an adventure? Tweet it, see who agrees.”
It was a given that RICK AND MORTY can only do some episodes with big reveals. As long as there’s enough action and humor, I’m okay with a sub-par episode… but please keep the president cameos to a minimum.
The latest episode is available to stream on Adult Swim.
