“Rixty Minutes”
Ah, yes, the episode in which Rick hooks up the TV with a converter that receives programming from every conceivable dimension. What could be just a series of quick gags … is a series of quick gags, but not just a series of quick gags. Each program makes you want to live in that world to figure out what, for example, would compel someone to make a commercial for fake doors that turns into an existential short film. This is a canny movie, as it sets up potential callbacks (with depth) for future episodes. Season 2’s “The Ricks Must Be Crazy,” indeed, features a Ball Fondlers movie. Perhaps there is also a world in which Turbulent Juice is recalled.
