Rick And Morty season 1 episode 8 “Rixy Minutes” introduced fans to the pleasures of interdimensional cable. Rick And Morty follows the titular grandfather and grandson as they travel across the galaxy - occasionally with other members of the family in tow - and have various adventures. Far from being a colorful children’s series, this Adult Swim show is instead filled with dark humor, disgusting monsters and characters regularly suffering existential crises.

On top of all that, Rick And Morty is also one of the funniest shows on TV, thanks to its fantastic writing and voice acting. It slowly evolved from a cult series to a worldwide obsession, and it has a knack for creating memorable characters and catchphrases. The fourth season - well, the first half of it - finally arrived in 2019, producing great episodes like “The Old Man and the Seat.” The second half of Rick And Morty season 4 is expected in 2020.

One fan favorite element of the show is interdimensional cable, which was introduced in Rick And Morty season 1 episode 8 “Rixty Minutes.” This episode is relatively low stakes in many ways since the family never actually leave the house, thanks to Rick replacing the cable box with a gadget that beams shows from different galaxies. This premise is just an excuse for creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon (Community) to string together some wacky ideas for TV shows and movies - which is delightful.

Probably the most popular gag from Rick And Morty season 1 episode 8 is the trailer for Two Brothers, AKA Alien Invasion Tomato Monster Mexican Armada Brothers Who Are Just Regular Brothers Running In A Van From An Asteroid And All Sorts Of Things The Movie. Like the longer title suggests, it’s an action/sci-fi movie about two tough brothers who are increasingly overwhelmed by the ridiculous challenges coming their way, with Roiland even hear laughing at the end of the improvised voice over. There’s also an advert for Fake Doors, Garfield parody Gazorpazorpfield, an alternate version of Game Of Thrones and Last Will And Testimeow: Weekend At Dead Cat Lady’s House II, a gross Weekend At Bernie’s parody directed by an alternate Jerry.

Amid this madness, in Rick And Morty season 1 episode 8 is a subplot where Summer learns she was an unwanted pregnancy. In addition to upsetting her, Jerry and Beth reflect on the realities where they didn’t have Summer and instead focused on their careers, with Beth becoming a surgeon and Jerry becoming a successful actor. This wouldn’t be Rick And Morty without an emotional twist, with the interdimensional cable revealing Jerry and Beth still pined for each other after breaking up, and they reunite after years apart. This causes Jerry and Beth to do the same in their reality - much to the annoyance of Rick.
