Rick and Morty rebounded this week with an exceptional meta-parody of a movie.
This episode is very solid, and no doubt history will be kind as time progresses.
Pointless Summer-Jerry conversations and over-gratuitous violence overshadow moments that want to say something meaningful about poverty and Morty's repressed rage. The distractions don't necessarily spoil the goods, though.
It's easily the bloodiest out of the show's entire canon, and while it does get gratuitous at times, the violence never outstays its welcome.
It's fun enough, but after so much great original sci-fi it was a bit of a bummer to just see a full-on lift of another premise.
"Cat People Purge" delivered exactly what it promised as far as visual absurdity goes, and if you're on board for the bloodshed it's a fine enough time.
Rick and Morty seems to be saying that people like Rick, who gleefully indulge their negative impulses, are more honest and healthier than someone like Morty, who does not at all.
Morty may be confused and sheltered and naive, and he may be capable of a really impressive amount of horrific murder, but at least there's a part of him that's still believes there's something out there worth fighting over.
Really, "Look Who's Purging Now" is a pretty solid season 2 episode.
The combination of a few clever twists, a lot of violent action and dancing and a poignant resolution resulted in another memorable Season 2 installment.
