Rick and Morty “Meeseeks and Destroy” Episode Review
This is a Meeseeks box. Just press this “I’m Mr. Meeseeks! Look at me!” You make a request “Mr. Meeseeks, shock the Rick and Morty audience with this new episode”. “Yes siree!” The Meeseeks fulfills the request, “all done” and then it stops existing. Just keep your request simple, they’re not gods.
This episode is completely different from any of the previous Rick and Morty episodes. This time Morty is in charge of the adventure, Meeseeks are providing helping hands, and Jerry’s an idiot. Okay…so maybe it’s not completely different but it’s a welcomed change of pace. The show has had its share of jaw dropping moments before, but this episode’s shock value is on a whole new level. Rick and Morty aren’t f*cking around anymore and we can see that in this episode.
As you can see by the episode’s title, things were going to get chaotic at some point. As expected in the show, things always come around, but not before sh*t hits the fan. While Rick and Morty are off on an adventure to a semi-realistic approach to a fantasy world, Jerry’s having a difficult time with his Meeseeks request. Like I said before, Jerry’s an idiot and that doesn’t seem like it’s going to change anytime soon.
There’s one scene in particular in this episode that might be the darkest scene in the show to date (you’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it). From watching the scene, and by reading comments on the episode, it seems everyone was shocked that it went that far. You don’t see too many shows push certain boundaries like Rick and Morty, that’s for sure. Just don’t pull a Doc and Mharti episode on us please (no, I’m not linking it).
“Meeseeks and Destroy” isn’t the best Rick and Morty episode, but it’s far from the worst. If you enjoy the show as much as I do then you’ll be content with this new episode. I just have one thing to say though. I never liked Jellybeans, even as a kid, and I don’t think this episode helped me like them.
