Rick and Morty is Anime Now, Sorry

It’s been long overdue, but praise the heads in the sky because we’re now knee-deep in Rick and Morty season three. We have so many new jokes to reference. Szechuan sauce! Pickle Rick! Noob noob!

Decades. While most of ...

MCU News: A First Look at Cable, David Hasselhoff Raps and More
