RICK AND MORTY RICKMANCING THE STONE REVIEW
Season 3 Episode 2:
Rick and Morty season 3 is finally here, after a couple months since the first episode, we have episode two, which does carry over from the first episode, so let's do a quick recap of the episode.
With Jerry moving out Rick, Morty, and Summer go to a post apocalyptic Mad Max Earth where Rick is after a new isotope. Summer fits into the crowd of the Earth and Morty is given a new arm and its memories by Rick, sending him on a rampage through the Thunderdome. With Rick caught stealing the isotope he flees back home without the grandkids and makes robots to replace them without Beth knowing.
In this time Morty continues his rampage with the new arm, and Summer marries Important Joe, Hemorrhage. Rick comes back to get the kids and manages to help the Mad Max society use the isotope to help power their world. Towards the end, Summer and Important Joe getting a divorce like Beth and Jerry did, and the trio goes home with Rick taking the isotope, ruining the Earth. Back home Morty tells Beth that Jerry would have stayed if he wanted to and Summer goes to visit Jerry who gets called a loser by the Earth itself.
What I liked about the episode was how it seemed like the Smith kids dealt with the divorce, they avoided it and took their anger out, especially Morty who didn't feel sympathy for Jerry because he knows what Jerry could have done to not get divorced from Beth. But the gladiator scenes in the episode, really gruesome, but really neat, it was a great blend having the action and the development of Morty.
The voice cast in the episode was great, Justin Roiland is a legend, voicing both Rick and Morty. It was great getting a more hardcore Summer in the episode, voiced by Spencer Grammer. The rest of the cast was great as always, Jerry Smith (Chris Parnell), Beth Sanchez (Sarah Chalke), and Hemorrhage (Joel McHale).
Overall, Rickmancing the stone was a neat episode, having RIck steal a green stone like in the film Romancing and the stone. throughout the season Beth will probably see more of what Rick gets up to with the kids and realize Jerry was right. Anyway, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland put in a lot of effort into the show, and it showed in this episode, which I will give an 8 out of 10. I would really like to hear your thoughts on the episode down in the comments below. As always thanks for reading, take care.
