Rick and Morty – Season 2, Episode 8 – “Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate” – Jerry’s Story is Stronger

Interdimensional Cable 2 Tempting Fate

  The sequel is not as good as the original “Interdimensional Cable” though Jerry’s story is really good at showing just how much of a sad, lonely loser he is. The side stories aren’t really memorable.

     The story involves Jerry being transported to an alien hospital and learning that Space Ghandi needs his penis for a heart transplant since they are around the same size and shape forcing him to go through extreme means to try and not do it but be admired. A bored Rick creates another Interdimensional Cable network.

The Pros: The Improv Shows that worked – “Lil Bits” was funny describing food in a sexual manner, “Jan Quadrant Vincent 17” was a good satire of action films and “Mr Stealy” was good too. The rest were really forgettable and I agreed with summer that it was going for extremes and lost the humor.

Jerry’s Story – Jerry is a dick and he ends up going from wanting to get out of giving it away after being okay with it due to social pressure even it means saving a life and later trying to force the doctors to cut it off and holding them hostage. Jerry hitting rock bottom is really illustrated in this episode and just how desperate he is.

   The main group isn’t really there. Nothing is memorable about Rick, Beth, Summer or Morty as they are just watching the television. They had a lot more story last time. This was why the episode was weak. It depended way to much on Jerry and the short television improvs to carry the episode.

Final Score: 4 / 10
