Bye Bye, Brood-y
You know what they say: if you can’t beat ’em via blackmail with evidence of their deeply suppressed homosexuality, kill ’em! Most of True Detective‘s second season has been too convoluted for mere mortals to understand, but even the most befuddled viewers understood that Paul Woodrugh, the tortured, tormented motorcycleman played by Taylor Kitsch, is definitely dead. It has something to do with shady land deals and security corporations. Who knows? Like we said, all we know is that he’s dead. RIP, Taylor Kitsch’s brief return to prestige TV.
A Rick and Morty Musical
Or at least a handful of musical interludes from guest star Jemaine Clement, who plays an ultra-powerful interdimensional being capable of transforming anything into anything — and who Rick promptly names “Fart.” This is Rick and Morty, so things go very dark very quickly, but they’re helped along by some wonderfully trippy visuals as Fart serenades Morty into a false sense of security. Bonus: Andy Daly is this week’s other guest voice, making “Mortynight Run” a truly stacked 20 minutes of lunacy.
