More Episodes

In this episode, we examine an episode of the popular animated sci-fi comedy show, Rick and Morty. The specific episode we watched and gave our thoughts on was Season 4, Episode 1. So, please go watch the episode yourself before listening to the spoilers!

We talk about the time travel concepts and break down why the elements in this particular episode work or don't work. As we always say, "In comedy, everything is forgiven" but is there even anything to forgive?

Maybe you can have your funny cake and eat it with full engaging narrative power too.
