Final week’s fantastically dense take a look at a world of infinite Ricks and Morties was the proper instance, utilizing a trio of miniature narratives as a way for instance completely different aspects of the titular duo’s personalities. “Our” Rick—the one the collection is following—is outlined by being an asshole, and this new video essay from ScreenPrism makes an attempt to tease out simply why.
Simply because the present sees its preposterous sci-fi premises by to their logical and emotional conclusions, so too does the video take the collection’ myriad gags significantly, imagining an infinite cartoon cosmos and empathizing with the hyper-intelligent scientist trapped inside it.

The more and more compelling character of Evil Morty is even a attainable trigger. Regardless of the case, it’s an appropriately wealthy evaluation of the present, and proof that its density holds as much as scrutiny as deep as you wish to take it.
Anyway, perhaps one among these theories will assist clarify this complete “Suicide Helmet” factor?
