It's getting darker...
3 September 2015 | by TouchTheGarlicProductionSee all my reviews

Well, that just happened. At first, the episode appeared to be totally run of the mill; Rick creates a love potion for Morty, which backfires and makes everyone crazy for him. I have seen that plot from so many shows like this. For example, Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I resigned myself to another repetition of that same story, but then it went completely off the rails when Rick tried to fix the problem.

Suddenly, we had a very strong story. But it was the ending that cinched it for me. Rick and Morty get out of the situation in a way that is incredibly clever and oh so dark. If you thought the rapist jelly bean from last episode was disturbing, just you wait. Up until now, I've just been sort of into the show, but now I'm hooked.
