Best Episodes of Rick And Morty (#9)

'Look Who's Purging Now'
Season 2, Episode 9

Rick and Morty stop off at a planet real quick to grab some windshield wiper fluid, only to discover that planet is having a "purge night" like the popular movie series. Rick is intrigued by this and decides to stick around to watch it, only to wind up being drug into it. Back on Earth, Jerry tries to bond with Summer.

It's always fun when almost the entire focus of an episode is on the exploits of Rick and Morty having an action packed adventure instead of putting almost any emphasis at all on what's going on with the rest of the family. And in that way, this episode is a total success. One of only 2 episodes actually written by Dan Harmon (co-written, at least) and that's pretty obvious when you get to the scene involving an old man who reads his horrible screenplay to Morty and then demands notes on it, only to get aggressive when confronted with any actual criticism. The action scenes here are thrilling, the jokes are funny, and it's never dull at all. The second-to-last episode of the second season, which makes it the last one-off adventure in the show so far, and it's a pretty great one.
