A new Rick and Morty Monday is here. The sixth season of Adult Swim’s most thuggish adult animated series continues its advance in hbo max with the third chapter.
On this occasion, the chapter is titled Bethic Twin Instincta reference to basic instinctthe film starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone in 1992. Obviously, as the title suggests, the character who is going to gain prominence in the plot is going to be Beth Smiththe daughter of Rick Sánchez for good and for bad.
Trailer for Rick and Morty season 6, which arrives at the HBO Max catalog in September
What we will find on screen in this new episode of the series of Dan Harmon (Community) and justin royland (Solar Opposites) is what would be the Thanksgiving special in other series, except that, in the case of Rick and Morty, it will arrive a little earlier.
Today, at Hobby Consoles, we bring you our review of the third episode of season 6 of Rick and Mortywhich is available now on HBO Max.
A “QUIET” THANKSGIVING FOR RICK AND MORTY
This third episode is going to be the calmest so far in Rick and Morty season 6. Practically the entire plot will focus on the Smith house during the popular American celebration.
Beth Smith’s cloned twin, dubbed the “Space Beth“, visits Earth to participate in the family dinner.
If you like series like Friends, The Sopranos or Game of Thrones, HBO Max has these and many more in its catalog.
In this point, the two Beth will take center stage in its main plot in which Sarah Chalk you will have to work twice as hard in the recording room.
Secondly, Rick Sanchez and his grandchildren, Morty and Summer, will enjoy some family time they need to basically forget certain things.
TURKEY, STREET FIGHTER AND A BIT OF NARCISSISM
Through Beth and Space Beth’s “twin” relationship, rick and morty pokes fun at narcissism in a very curious way.
However, the subplot is a mess with a few references to the world of video games that are too realistic (the videogames, not the references) and some nods to titles like Street Fighter that you won’t want to miss.
It also seems to confirm the Rick Sanchez’s dart throw to the DC Extended Universe. Recently it was the turn of Zack Snyder’s Justice League to take a palete, today it is the turn of another title in the franchise.
We will find some references to past events in the series, especially when Jerry is in action, as well as Rick Sanchez’s current inability to use the portal gun.
It’s a fun chapter though, especially its subplot, is less intense than its two predecessors. It is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is the “negative” note in our global review of the episode.
for now, the screen largely misses the craziness that Rick’s portals brought to the Adult Swim series. Despite the fact that the season has started strong, the self-conclusive episodes are, to a certain extent, orphaned by not having those classic exits from the series.
But you don’t have to put pressure on Rick, because “he doesn’t want to fix it”, as he himself would say. We can only wait.
We’ll be back next Monday, September 26, with our review of the fourth episode of Rick and Morty season 6, which will already be on HBO Max.
