me and sarah have been watching a lot of homestar runner lately and the nostalgia trip is intense.
Whoa there MCU Loki - I only turned around for a second; when did puberty happen?
(Pose done with ref)
Rick and Morty started off with a classic episode about a boy (Morty) who was into a girl that was way out of his league, so he wanted some sort of potion to make her fall in love with him
obviously, like in most episodes similar to this one, it doesn’t work out, but instead of making Morty totally blame-free, Rick totally calls him out on the creepiness of his actions.
Rick and Morty might be totally hilarious, but they get pretty deep sometimes. This was just one of the many moments on this show where they missed a chance to make a shitty gag joke about something offensive to bring up a deeper meaning instead, the meaning in this case being:
"just because you call it something innocent, like a love potion, doesn’t make it any less creepy that you’re forcing something on another human being to make them love you against their will"
tl;dr: fuck yeah Rick and Morty
And you know, what I love just as much is that Morty accepts responsibility for his actions— but doesn’t drop the fact that Rick carelessly ruined the lives of EVERYONE else on the planet beyond repair.
I’ve seen so many shows/movies where one character is able to pawn off the entire blame for literally anything by bringing up a weaker character’s transgressions. The writers went out of their way to make sure every uncomfortable plotpoint in this story was addressed and I could NOT be more impressed with them.
I think as soon as the words “roofie juice” happened my heart exploded. Rounded characters getting smacked down for their shortcomings is deliciously progressive, mmm..

Oh, Carlos texted.
“No pasta, but there’s leftover falafel and an unopened bag of nutmeg seeds to snack on. XOXO”
And then there’s an emoji of, uh, two dinosaurs chasing an early-80s Ford Mustang up a palmetto-lined suburban street as some residents look on, shocked and scared – a few laughing – others undisturbed as they mow their lawns or sculpt their fruit-shaped topiary bushes, oh man.
Oh, that’s very cute!"
