Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 2 Review – ‘Rickmancing The Stone’

31 July 2017 6:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe reviews the latest episode of Rick and Morty ‘Rickmancing The Stone’…

After what feels like a lifetime, Rick and Morty are back, properly this time. Ever since the surprise arrival of Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 1 back in April, fans have been waiting for the latest bunch of episodes to drop, and last night the wait was finally over with the arrival of ‘Rickmancing the Stone.’

Focusing, surprisingly, on the divorce of Jerry and Beth, Rickmancing the Stone was a perfect introduction to the third season. A Mad Max-themed episode that explored the effect that the divorce has had on not only Summer and Morty but also on Rick, Rickmancing the Stone was a gentle easing back into the show that delivered plenty of laughs and a lot of character development. Parodies of popular culture have always been a strong point for Harmon, who did the same with several episodes of Community, »

Welcome to the darkest year of their adventures, as Rick And Morty returns with plentiful Mad Max references...

3.2: Rickmancing The Stone

Can you believe it? Here we are, a mere 63 (give or take) years later, having been blessed with the second episode of Rick And Morty’s third season. And you know what? It wasn’t quite the tour de force that the premiere was, but this was still a very well-plotted, pretty funny episode.

The first thing I’m pleased about is that the show is sticking with the Jerry and Beth divorce. My two main complaints about season 2 were that it seemed far less »

‘Rick and Morty’ Review: Summer Takes Center Stage in a ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Therapy Session

30 July 2017 8:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Rick and Morty” Season 3, Episode 2, “Rickmancing the Stone.”]

When “Rick and Morty” premiered back in April with a surprise episode that only a small group of marketing people at Adult Swim knew was coming, it treated fans who had waited since the end of Season 2 with an episode that mainly delivered on some greatest hits. Aliens had captured Rick, hellbent on stealing a secret from his subconscious. Meanwhile, life back on Earth had descended into total chaos. The last shot was even a mirror of the “100 years Rick and Morty” monologue from the end of the show’s pilot.

So how do you follow that up and get audiences excited for what the rest of Season 3 has to offer? Apparently the answer is Badass Summer. It took descending into an all-out “Mad Max: Fury Road” battle for wasteland supremacy, but it looks like the show’s central duo now has a capable third member.

James Marsden and Joel McHale Had a 'Fight' -- About Doritos

22 July 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In the midst of the huge crowds, action-packed panels and entertainment installations at San Diego Comic-Con, James Marsden and Joel McHale waged a “war” over an “age-old” debate: whether Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch Doritos are better.

Why? Because they were celebrity team captains for a Doritos fan event called the “Bold or Boom Challenge,” for which two teams of fans were assembled to compete in an athletic challenge for McHale’s Team Cool Ranch and Marsden’s Team Nacho Cheese. People caught up with the two TV stars before the event to find out how they got themselves involved »

The Best TV Characters of the 2000s, Ranked

27 June 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ah, the 2000s — an indefinable decade of war, social progression, and an explosion of prestige TV. With so much great television came many, many great television characters. The best shows were built on battles of quality characters: Is Don Draper better than Peggy Olson? Lorelai Gilmore or Rory? Walter White or Jesse Pinkman? Or is there a third, less-referenced character who’s the secret star?

These aren’t problems by any stretch of the imagination: Great characters lead to better episodes, seasons, and series, so having too many is hardly a handicap in a medium with so much time. But before standalone episodes started trending, these were the best characters during the onset of TV’s new golden age.

A few rules, to keep things sane: Characters had to be created between 2000 and 2009. So even if the show was created before we knew Y2K wasn’t worth the worry, »
