Rick and Morty Recap: “Morty’s Mind Blowers”

Uneven, as anthology episodes always are, but viciously pointed in its best moments.

Read More

Rick and Morty Recap: “The Ricklantis Mixup”

A normal, self-contained adventure with no major plot developments.

Read More

Rick and Morty Recap: Rest and Ricklaxation

In which the show magically makes its characters "healthy," and it turns out to be a terrible idea.

Read More

Rick and Morty Recap: “Total Rickall”

We've had bad times together, right?
