If you thought that this would just be another family camping episode, then you don’t know Rick and Morty.
So, the last episode of Harley Quinn ended with Harley and Ivy escaping Bane’s Pit. And then they kissed. THEY. KISSED. We knew it was coming, but to happen so suddenly is as crazy as Quinn is. The last time I got the same reaction to a kiss was the infamous “Booth Buddies” episode of Star vs. The Forces of Evil. Unlike that show, though, this episode actually addresses the effects of the kiss. Or rather, Harley denies there being any effects all episode, with terrible results.
Well, this episode of Harley Quinn should have made Harley+Ivy shippers very happy in the end. And then they kisssss…. Shipping wars.
Rick Sanchez, I knew you were a sociopathic monster that cares little besides himself, but dang, man. The “Vat of Acid Episode” hammered home how petty Rick can be. That’s what everyone who’s watched it says, and I see no reason to argue with that. Comedic sociopathy aside, the “Vat of Acid Episode” hammered home an important point for me. That point being how far Rick will go to keep Morty under his toxic influence.
You know what I spent all weekend watching? Solar Opposites, from the co-creator of Rick and Morty, Justin Roiland. It’s awesome!
So, I’ve never actually seen any films from the Alien franchise, but I know the premise. Monstrous aliens that reproduce by injecting hosts with parasitic embryos that hatch by exploding out of their victim’s chests. Something like Alien is easy pickings for the likes of Rick and Morty, and that’s just what happens in their newest episode, “Promortyus.”
Well, I knew it was only a matter of time before Joker re-appeared. Albeit, he doesn’t remember being Joker. But can he truly change for the better?
Against my better judgment (I’m trying to adopt a normal sleep schedule), I stayed up to watch the midseason premiere of Rick and Morty. As a result, I watched an episode that I can only describe as meta fourth-wall breaking high on pot. And the ending was enough to make what happened in Lost look sane.
You know what my favorite part of the new episode of Harley Quinn was. They tore a new at toxic fans and haters. Also, Batman’s back.
We know that the Joker left a lot of mental scars on Harley Quinn before she finally dumped him. One of the scars that no one ever considered, though, was how skewed her concept of love. Or rather, she doesn’t think love is real. As she gets back to fighting Mr. Freeze, though, she gets a much-needed lesson on love and how it can thaw a cold heart.
Harley Quinn and Ivy’s roles are reversed in the third episode of Season 2. As Harley hires Catwoman to help them steal a weapon, Ivy comes to terms with how her life’s turned out.
In order to take down the Riddler, Harley, Ivy, and “Stephanie” sneak into her new school of Riddler U. It’s back to school for Harley in a new episode! Featuring Batgirl!
In hindsight, I really wish that I had reviewed the first season of DC Universe’s R-rated show, Harley Quinn. So when Season Two came out on DC Universe earlier today, I vowed to review the whole season. Buckle up, buttercup, because this is going to be amazing.
As we end the decade, I wanted to look back on my favorite cartoons of this Animation Renaissance we’ve gone through. Here are my top ten favorite cartoons of the 2010s in no order!
I can sum up the mid-season finale of Rick and Morty with three words: time-traveling snakes.
When Santa cracks down on drinking during the holidays, Randy comes up with some special Christmas Snow to help the grown ups survive through Christmas. All this and more on the season finale of South Park.
