‘Rick and Morty’ Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Gets a Deadly Twist in ‘Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender’
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Rick and Morty” Season 3, Episode 4, “Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender.”]

At its best, “Rick and Morty” is a show that’s been able to take the basic, ordinary parts of human life and spin them into grand, misshapen sci-fi horrors. Dogs taking over the world, parasites taking over happy memories, and a school dance becoming the platform for an army of Cronenbergs all came from a simple premise warped so fully that the result was twisted, unrecognizable bliss.

“Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender” is an episode as deceptive as its title. What starts as a means for a “Guardians of the Galaxy”-style adventure against a looming foe gets the “Rick and Morty” treatment by putting that formula in reverse. It’s no surprise that this show would take a premise with unlimited possibilities and trap this supersquad in a simplistic “Saw”-bstacle course. Even if some of it feels a little familiar, at least it’s sending things in a different direction.

Photos: Two Star-Studded Tributes To Sf's Most Famous Rock Legend

I'll never forget the day Jerry Garcia died.

It was a Wednesday; I was ten. My father came home in the middle of his work day, crestfallen, with the news. He spent the rest of the afternoon with his record collection, taking me through the life and legacy of his hero.

(Editor's Note: I know everyone in San Francisco thinks their dad was the Biggest Deadhead Of All Time, but mine actually was. We had Jerry's handprint, complete with the missing middle finger, framed on our wall.)

It's been almost 17 years since our city's greatest rock star passed away, and last Friday marks what would have been his 70th birthday. Accordingly, the Bay Area celebrated with tributes only fit for a legend.

On Wednesday, the San Francisco Giants held their annual "Jerry Garcia Day" at At&T park, complete with Jerry bobbleheads for attendees and a live concert before the game.
