Rick refers to Cronenberg world, Morty's original dimension when speaking to Jaguar about how he left his Beth before possibly foreshadowing the concept that Rick wasn't the original Rick of Post Cronenberg world. See more »

One of the best, in my book
9 September 2018 | by rzajacSee all my reviews

It's perfect. There's not much more to say. The scenario work, dialog, direction, acting, pacing, EVERYTHING.

The writing is super, super intelligent. Well... I will note a kind of "goof" in the underlying science at one point. (DON'T consider the following a "spoiler":) It shows Rick stimulating "parts" of a cockroach's "brain" to tap it's motor functions. Pretty sure that early stimulus/motor-response scenario is not in keeping with our current understanding of the nervous function of the arthropods. For some time now, robotics researchers have recognized the effectiveness of "distributed intelligence" and point to insects as examples of this.

BUT!!! I don't care! The story is fantastic, and I loved the writing for Dr. Wong, and the challenging thematic treatment of therapy. I'd like to think that if there's a downstream effect, it'll be in the direction of getting *more* Rick and Morty weenies to consider seeing a professional... not *less*.

Please, R&M producers: Hew more in *this* direction in future development!
