Review: Orange is the New Black season 4

Warning: massive spoilers ahead Wow. Just wow. This season was an interesting one for sure, but I don't know how I feel about it. I think that they planned big moments carefully, but the details and aftermath were all over the place. This has recently been a problem with Orange is the New Black, and [...]

“Inception made sense!” Morty insists to Rick that the plot of Inception made sense. Rick replies, “You don't have to try and impress me, Morty.” It's actually a weird theme in this episode that Inception didn't make any sense. I'm not sure if we're supposed to read this episode as some sort of Inception takedown, [...]

Earlier this week, I talked about the opening sequence of S1E1. “How is Morty supposed to do well in his classes if you keep taking him away for high-concept sci-fi rigamarole?” This moment nicely tells you what the show is about (high-concept sci-fi rigamarole), and introduces you to Jerry's role on the show: the dumb [...]
