Rick and Morty perhaps hit a low-point with their adventure this week. The singing competition was rather bland and even the B storyline tied to it caused some inconsistencies.
The song is really annoying, but the gags are fantastic.
Rick and Morty end up improvising two so-bad-they're-amazing songs... while scribe Tom Kauffman also skewers the blind faith of organized religions and gifts rapper-actor Ice-T with an extraordinary (but understandable) superpower.
The song "Get Schwifty" is certainly a successful gag that pokes fun at the relative ease in which modern pop songs are created, but the episode as a whole isn't nearly as engaging as it could be. That isn't to say there isn't noteworthy moments.
Bolstered by a subplot involving Jerry, Beth, Summer and other townspeople mistaking the giant alien heads for new gods, and while this story probably could've been improved by taking the lead in an episode, it's enjoyable enough.
This episode was a solid, welcome breather before we dive headlong into the back half of the season.
"Get Schwifty" is let down by a plot that's overly complex and too goofball to take seriously.
All of the components of this episode, while still funny (Ice. T.), felt a little lazy to me.
This week's Rick and Morty was relatively disappointing, but still provided plenty of entertainment.
It's just more of a placeholder than anything else, and after the highs of the first few episodes this season, it's probably more of a let down than it ought to be.
