“Claw And Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Unit” Rick and Morty S4 E4

So I was trying to make a character using the official D&D character builder and among the options for allowed content was the core books, playtesting stuff, and… Rick and Morty.  And I like Rick and Morty, obviously, but even I let out kind of a Kif Kroker sigh when I saw that.  Given the R&M and D&D partnership, I guess it’s apropho that we get an episode about Rick and Morty getting intertwined with a dragon in a weirdly sexual way.

I liked the way this one just took a new aesthetic that we don’t see very much – I don’t think they’ve visited a fantasy universe since way back in Season 1 – and just went all-out with it with some awesome dragon designs.

  • It’s nice to see Summer finally getting something to do this season.
  • DUCKMAN LUNCHBOX!  I love Duckman. Parts of it are very edgy-90s in a way that doesn’t hold up very well, but when it’s good, it’s really good.
  • That cat may have committed some kind of unspeakable atrocity, but he’s right about Urban Dictionary-style sex acts, dammit.  I wonder what it’s called with ten people soul-bond and overthrow a wizard?

Only one more episode left in the first half of the season – I wonder if they’re going to mimic a traditional season and slot in a really solid season-ender, or if we’re going to get something a little more mid-season so that the full season retains a normal season structure?  We’ll have to wait until next time to find out.
