Rick & Rick Review 'Aquaman' (Ep 206)

🍿 DC's "Aquaman" has already made more than a $600 million splash at the global box office, on its way to what is looking like a possible $1 billion run before all is said and done.

So it only seems fit that the Ricks would weigh in what sinks, what swims, and WTF is up with the bongo-playing Octopus, the Julie Andrews-voiced monster, and a whole lot more.

It's a rip-roaring Rick and Rick review you definitely don't want to miss. But fair warning: Major spoilers ahead.
