Rick and Morty - Rickmancing the Stone

It's a mad, mad world when Rick (Justin Roiland), Summer (Spencer Grammer), and Morty (Roiland) head to an post-apocalyptic Earth not unlike a recent film. Spending more time with their grandfather since their parents divorce hasn't seemed to help anyone. Summer has taken a dark turn, taking an immediate shine to her new surroundings while Morty's initial dislike of the new world is softened when Rick's experimenting gives him a monstrous-sized arm to beat our his anger on all comers as he becomes master of the Blood Dome.

Having taken the precious element he set out for, Rick's decision to leave his grand kids and replace them with robots for Beth's (Sarah Chalke) benefit doesn't play out exactly like how the mad scientist hoped. In the end the family comes together to kill, steal, and make it back home in one piece after a cathartic romp through a post-apocalyptic wasteland. As always, Beth seems a bit oblivous to the danger her father puts her children in, but the stay on the hostile world seems to have helped both Morty and Summer through their unspoken issues with their parents' divorce.
