Sadiq Kahn intervenes in the Middle East:
The new series of Rick and Morty started last week with soundalike actors following the removal of Justin Roiland, who it now turns out actually assaulted people.
The first episode wasn’t very good, and focused on Mr Poopy Butthole and a bunch of disposable side characters. You’d think it was designed to take the focus off Rick and Morty, but I’m pretty sure it would have been written before they replaced Roiland - ironically the new voice actor for Mr PB (also formerly voiced by Justin Roiland) was way more jarring than the replacements for the titular characters.
The second episode was a banger, though - like many of the best later season episodes it’s pure Harmon high concept trope deconstruction, so packed with jokes and twists that you’d need to watch it a few times to catch everything, but with a bit of the anarchy and brutality from the earlier seasons before Roiland apparently fell out with everyone and started phoning it in. I hope they can keep the show going as I prefer it to Harmon’s Krapopolis and that twee Strange Planet thing.
