Did You Know?


The episode revolves around Rick and Morty trying to determine which of their friends are real and who's a parasite, leading to paranoia. This is similar to the plot from the 1982 film The Thing (1982). Keith David, who appears in this episode as Reverse Giraffe, played Childs in "The Thing". See more »

The ULTIMATE clip show episode!
4 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Ever since the Community clip show episode, we've all known that Dan Harmon is a genius at the format, but this took it to a whole new level. For those who don't know, a "clip-show" is a television episode that involves a lot of flash-backs. They use this when budget is low and they need to fill an episode. What better way to fill runtime than show us what we've seen before? One such example is the finale of season 2 of Star Trek the Next Generation. These episodes are often crap. Dan Harmon's genius is using the format but showing us things we hadn't seen before. We saw this in Community, where he confuses us by making us think we are going to see a flashback, but then showing us an adventure we hadn't seen before, leading to the inevitable moment when you think "Wait, I have no memory of this. What is going on?". That was the running joke in that Community episode, but this time, he uses that feeling to construct a clever premise that hinges on a brilliant new alien race on par with the weeping angels from Doctor Who.
