I’d say this is the best season the show has ever broadcast – some of the individual episodes might not be my favourite, but the overall tone of the season and some of the episodes are just perfect. How would I rank the episodes?
10 – Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate
As I said before in the season 1 ranking, I wasn’t a huge fan of the Interdimensional Cable segment. At least the original episode had some good moments though, but this sequel is just a retread of all the worst aspects of the idea.
9 – Big Trouble in Little Sanchez
Is it bad that I don’t really remember this episode?
I remember some funny bits from it, but on the whole I don’t think this is the strongest episode.
8 – Auto Erotic Assimilation
An already great episode that hits you right in the feels at the end. This is some top tier stuff, so even I’m surprised it ranks this low.
7 – Get Schwifty
As a huge fan of music myself, it was great to see the show do a musical parody episode. Both songs are fantastic, but it’s the titular “Get Schwifty” that will stick with me forever.
6 – Look Who’s Purging Now
Because of course Rick and Morty were going to capitalise on the Purge movies that were coming out at the time. The scene where Morty kills the old guy in a fit of rage is one of the funniest moments in the show.
5 – A Rickle in Time
An amazing season opener, and you can tell that the show is getting even more high-concept compared to it’s already bonkers first season. Love the Key and Peele cameos as well.
4 – Mortynight Run
The arcade full of futuristic games is one of my favourite segments of any episode, and when they meet the mysterious cloud there are too many great moments to mention.
I’m a huge Bowie fan myself, so the fantastic “Goodbye Moonmen” song was the icing on the cake for an already amazing episode.
3 – The Wedding Squanchers
On the whole, Rick and Morty finales aren’t really anything special. The exception to the rule is this phenomenal season 2 finale, where the Morty family are forced to make tough decisions, and the ending made me beg for season 3’s swift release.
2 – The Ricks Must Be Crazy
It’s the concept of the episode alone that ranks this so highly – the inception levels of dimensions inside other dimensions is fascinating to watch, and on top of all that there are some hilarious moments peppered throughout.
1 – Total Rickall
This has a good case for being my favourite episode of all time – other than introducing fan-favourite character “Mr Poopy Butthole” (great name by the way), the absolute chaos that unfolds is amazing to watch. It’s episodes like this that make season 2 my favourite season of the show.
Season Rating: A
Let’s see the stats:
- 5 A (50%)
- 3 B (30%)
- 2 C (20%)
Very good on the whole, with half of the episodes coming in the “A” tier. Next is season 3, which once again is an amazing season of television. Until then, check out some of my latest blog posts:
“Reality” is … fine. I’ve never really been a huge fan of this album, and to be honest my opinion barely changed with a couple of re-listens. There are definitely some great ones on here, don’t get me wrong, but there are just too many bland fillers for my liking. How would I rank thisContinue reading ““Reality” Songs Ranked”
Season 1 of ATLA already did a fantastic job of establishing the characters and setting up the unique world within the story, so it seems impossible that each season managed to be better than the last. “Avatar: The Last Airbender” really comes into its own in Season 2 – it’s a lot less happy-go-lucky andContinue reading “Avatar: The Last Airbender – Season 2 (Earth) Episodes Ranked and Reviewed”
This album was the start of Bowie’s twilight years – the subject matter had become quite moody and melancholic, and somehow you get the feeling that Bowie knew his time was up on this planet. Does that make this album dreary and boring? Absolutely not. This is a huge breath of fresh air after aContinue reading ““Heathen” Songs Ranked”
