I enjoyed the pilot so far. It’s not as knee-slapping as I or anyone probably expected it to be, but the dry-as-a-bone humor and truly weird execution is keeping me interested. The phenomenal cast is pulling it through for sure, especially Jimmy Yang and Malkovich Malkovich. I’m not quite sure what to make of… Read more
This show is great. How has this been given so many non-positive reviews? I’d be curious to see if the people giving this less than stellar reviews think Rick and Morty is clever, or think that Deadpool is actually funny.
For me, it’s a perfect indictment of human behavior. Currently, we have all of the scientists telling us that climate change is going to destroy our way of life, and yet we’re going to do it anyway. We created nuclear weapons that can destroy us all - that were designed to destroy us all - and are kind of hoping that… Read more
Eh. Don’t they do that every time they use a transporter?

Well, the result was a measurable improvement in people’s lives. Maybe not permanently life-altering for anyone but the very poor, but it’s something unquestionably good and helps people. She wasn’t doing it to get praise, she just wanted to do something good that didn’t backfire and fuck up the world even worse than… Read more
Dom’s relentlessness and sense of duty made her so good a t her job and saved her family. But her martyr complex made her life miserable. She always sacrificed herself for the job, family and even Darlene. And she was trying to do it again to apologise for the inconvenience of getting their asses saved even though… Read more
Com voice was control. The "echo" was it practicing.
I like the episode for the most part, but I do agree about the whole “go away, dog!” bit. It didn’t feel like a crevice that should run that deeply.
Let’s see: Spock has a previously unknown sibling, we have to search for Spock, and a space probe gaining sentience over time? Somehow they fit three of the worst Star Trek movies into one episode.
