In this week’s episode of Mortyverse, Travis and Louis discuss the 6th episode of Season 1 of Rick and Morty – Raising Gazorpazorp. At the core of this episode is the poor handling of gender politics, the manner in which a 14 year old boy handles a teenage pregnancy and how women come to have such fashionable clothing.
Travis and Louis steadfastly avoid acknowledging The Clovers while we discuss Rick’s nonchalant dimension swapping, re-enacting Jaws, and cronenbergs. As a bonus, Travis gets very angry at Louis not knowing anything about George RR Martin’s back catalogue.
Travis and Louis discuss what you can buy for 25 schmeckles, how Rick and Morty prefigured Hollywood’s abuse revelations, and what you could do with a meeseek.
Travis and Louis discuss whether you can tell which universe we’re watching, a throw-forward to Pickle Rick, taking aim at the seriousness of sci-fi, and never-nudes. It’s time for M. Night Shaym Aliens.
Travis and Louis talk the bubonic plague, the need to put down devices, and the fantastic voyage. It’s our chat about Rick and Morty’s homage to Jurassic Park.
Travis and Louis talk the forerunners to Rick and Morty, internet culture, Rene Decartes, and Dog World. We also launch a campaign for our own movie screenings. It’s episode 2 of Mortyverse!
Travis and Louis discuss how easily Jerry would get distracted by a street magician, toxic fandoms, and episode 1 of Rick and Morty. Things don’t stay on track and get a little philosophical!
