This is the new fun show for those of us yearning for more Rick and Morty. Alternate realities, the multi-universe, drugs, life, death, sex, violence, fun.

The Midnight Gospel follows a free spirited traveler, Clancy, who enters simulated realities through his vagina machine, which invokes the creative life force upon these twisted adventures. With the ability to choose a different avatar for each trip, he explores consciousness and reality meeting zany new characters which he shares open minded conversations in search of answers to the elusive taboo inquires that challenge our understanding of reality. Their conversations flow seamlessly and erratically through a mind bending physical reality of colors and chaos.

I'm three episodes in and loving it. Each trip so far, Clancy returns with a newly acquired token, deepened perspective, and a shared knowledge that he shares with the universe through his space podcast, spreading love, appreciation, and understanding.

Through the correspondences on his triangular computer, it seems we are slowly being introduced to an intricate plot with diabolical characters and questionable technology. As evidenced by his previous work, I think we are in for one hell of a ride with Pendleton Ward's new show.

Ward is the creator who brought us perhaps the best, and more kid friendly, animated show ever. There is an whole entire thread dedicated to this already - https://saintsreport.com/threads/adventure-time.389057/

Whenever you have some time, take a look and catch up on the entire discussion in that thread.

And enjoy The Midnight Gospel (y)

Tried to watch it and could only make it through 7 minutes. I can't wait for new seasons of F is for Family and Big Mouth. I miss the hormone monster. Falopian!

Episode 3 cameo

whoa, the interviewee in episode 3 is with the real life
Damien Echols, who was wrongfully incarcerated and on death row for the murder of a child. He spends some of the interview reflecting on his time in prison and keeping his head on straight by meditation and exploring magic.

"I had to find ways to help me cope with not only the emotional and mental anguish that I was going through, but also the physical anguish, the physical pain. So that pushed me constantly to keep exploring what was possible with these practices."

Trussell’s late mother, Deneen Fendig, recorded the audio for Trussell’s podcast in 2013, three weeks before she died.

Over 36 minutes, Clancy-Duncan and his mother discuss his birth, his life, and her impending death with a combination of compassion and frankness that’s almost hard to take, fourth wall be damned.

The combination of the sheer emotional power of a real conversation between a dying mother and her grieving son with the richness of metaphor, synthesizing an abstract, impressionistic fantasy with the fleeting beauty found amid the cruelties of reality, is almost overwhelming. It’s an effort almost sure to make all of its viewers cry while also asking them to learn: that your heart has to be broken for it to really be open, that we have to accept that we will die but that we don’t have to like it, and that even in death no one can truly be lost. Some things transcend even the inevitable.
