I hate the fan base. The whole show is pretty much a literal fuck you to the viewers, but they suck up to it because they are fucking worthless pieces of shit who think that being a nihilistic fuck makes them smarter. The show itself is all right but nothing very special. I'll watch it and probably enjoy it but nothing more.

Fuck this excuse. The fanbase has NOTHING to do with it. The show itself is gay as fuck and unfunny. No shit it attracts shitty people.. it's not the fanbase that's the issue and if you try to frame it that way it's cause you're embarrassed to be a part of that audience when really you probably are just as lame as them.

What I like about the show is pretty much the nods to old sci-fi and the occasional good joke that makes me chuckle. It is a watchable series and that is enough for me in these times. The fanbase grabs on to all the stuff that I don't particularly like in this show, like the main characters and the worst peepee poopoo jokes. What I dislike about the fanbase is that they crave abuse and enjoy when someone is shitting in their mouth as long as that person/character is "cool". It just screams "OH GOD I'M SO BORED AND STUPID, PLEASE THROW SHIT AT ME AND I'LL THROW MONEY AT YOU." I can't really blame the series for making fun at those people by giving them exactly what they want, but I can't deny that it lowers the overall quality of the show.

yeah it's pointless to talk about the fanbase in terms of show quality. sure they suck, it's impossible to avoid or argue against, and they ruin shit. no matter what the media. and as fanbases get bigger, the shittier elements grow at the same rate, and the shittiest of the shitty becomes worse. you just gotta move past it and watch things with an open mind and judge them on their own terms. sometimes good shows have rabid stupid fanbases, but the show is still good, if not the godly masterpiece the fans claim it to be. likewise something you might think to be shit because of a fanbase could merely be mediocre. if a creator panders directly to the fanbase that could really suck bad yeah, but I've never seen that in rick and morty. it's still pretty much the same show it was in season 1.

personally, I think rick and morty is pretty hit and miss. there's stretches where I couldn't care less about what's happening on screen and I"m not laughing,but when it hits it really fuckin hits. it's definitely funny and worth keeping up with, I don't understand how people can see it as outright shit. what's more, the good parts are still just as good as they were in season 1. nothing is ever gonna beat the pilot episode though. they set the bar too high with that one. that's why I worry about what a korgoth series would be like if it ever got greenlit. how do you beat a pilot like that?

I watched the show a while ago after hearing vaguely positive things about it online. The animation style reminded me of American Dad and it was on Adult Swim, which I've been watching since they had Space Ghost: Coast 2 Coast on in 1996 and I was in middle school.

I had no preconceptions about its fanbase or popularity, only what I described above.

I had to turn the show off within 10 minutes. The disgust was visceral, instinctual, and strong. I have no desire nor need to explain why I felt this disgust - it's been described thousands of times times online. But the fact is simple

That was a while ago, but since then I've seen this **muh fanbase** excuse non stop. Look, it has nothing to do with the fanbase. The fanbase indicates the type of person who enjoys it, and the probability that you are an outlier rather than another one of their typical fanbase members is, by definition, rare. (Again, no need to describe what typifies these people as it's been done thousands of times.)

**You** are the fanbase. **You** are the type of person who has given this show a bad name by association. The rest of the things you like? The way you spend your free time, what you choose to focus on after work or school, all the things in your mental universe. It attracts lame people because it is lame, if you are attracted to it the probability is that you are lame, point blank. Thinking you're different only makes you a variation of **pic related**. And being that type of person, which you most certainly are (speaking to every R&M fan reading this) is why the show has its well earned bad reputation.

*But the fact is simple, I despised the show well before knowing anything about its mainstream popularity or its audience. Using the popularity-contrarian excuse is a mindgame to make you feel like others are virtue signaling that they are cool rather than can simply tell that something is awful while the rest of the culture lags behind and gradually realizes how uncool they are.

If "knew how popular it was" means reading a few positive comments online and not hearing of it otherwise because I don't watch much cable TV. In fact I had almost complete virgin preconceptions and was honestly expecting to like the show when I tried watching it the first time. By pushing hte meme that those who are disgusted by it are only claiming so cause they are contrarian you are perpetuating the stereotype about why their main audience are lame.

I just want to say that it upsets me that people use the word meme so much these days, they just declare some popular happening or person or thing a meme because it got a lot of attention for 5 seconds.

Surely something must be exceptionally popular to become a meme and not just something that's going to be forgotten in 5 mins. Also yeah using meme in the way Troy Barnes did is also annoying.

I think it's a combunation of a lot of people are doing it self-awarely/somewhat jokingly and popular usage changing its general meaning. I think h3h3's usage might have had a lot of influence in that, too, as well as moms and 10 yr olds on facebook. Or maybe that's just my circle. Idk.

Also, pretty meh episode. It wasn't great, but it was decent. It had a few laughs. That's how it often is with a second episode of a season. Arc heavy, and settling in to the flow of the season. So for that, it wasn't bad. Some of the jokes felt a bit weak though. I'm sure it will pick back up. I just hope this season will be as good as last. Last season had quite a few 10/10 episodes imo.

Bad episode but not the worst ever. It's about on par with Raising Gazorpazorp and the intergalactic talent show episode. So I'm still optimistic for the rest of the season (although I didn't love episode 1 either)
The best episodes are the ones that focus on some mechanic, like the memory parasites or the meeseeks episode. This one just felt like movie references and standard cartoon family bullshit, I could have been watching American Dad

funny how everyone enjoys/hates different episodes. raising gazorpazorp is unforgivably lazy and predictable imo, possibly the series' worst episode, but I love the intergalactic talent show for the B-plot about Headism.

this most recent one had that same thing, the B-plot with the robot replacements of themselves back home was really funny, but the main story didn't impress me much.

Raising gazorpazorp was lazy asf. My favorite part of the talent show episode was how they made fun of religion, even though they drove it home with a rather on-the-nose way(Jerry saying maybe they were interpreting coincidental instances). Hell, that was just as good, if not better, as when Star Trek makes fun of religion.

I hated the second intergalactic cable episode the first time I saw it and when I went back to rewatch the season I really enjoyed it. I loved the gazorpazorp episode though. I didn't think it was lazier than any other episode in the series. That post credits scene and the bits with the marmaduke guy crack me up to no end. The only time I ever really disliked a bit in an episode and didn't come around on it was that one time rick calibrates his suicide machine with some cute animal and then chickens out on killing himself. It felt like too irrelevant and obvious of an emotional gutpunch. Just trying a bit too hard there. I can forgive it though, even Futrama got schmaltzy sometimes.

Yeah he passed out.

Tbh it's hard for me to pick a favorite. But it would either be Total Rickall (the one where they're stuck in the house with the parasites) or Autoerotic Assimilation (The one with the single minded species that Rick Dates) because of the references to Star Trek. Often times it's just one really funny moment or reference that makes an episode so memorable.

Rick Potion #9 (the one where he makes the Cronenbergs) was what really got me into the series, and might forever be my favorite. other than that one I'd agree with you that the hivemind one is one of the series' best.

That one's probably my favorite. Not just for the ending (and Rick addressing the fact that they can't do that every week), but also Rick turning the love potion concept on its head and calling Morty a rapist.

>>386152
Yeah I did like the headism story actually. Raising Gazorpazorp is my least favorite because the main plot was bad and the B-plot was bad.

>>386205
Don't know what to tell you bud, I just thought it was bad. The woman planet story and every joke in it felt about 20 years behind cultural relevance (how old's that Futurama episode where the exact same thing happens? is it 20 years yet?) and the alien baby story just didn't grab me. I don't think Morty is any fun when Rick and Summer aren't around. I laughed a couple of times but that episode just isn't elevated to the supreme level of comedy that most R&M is

totally agree. that was a super fun episode. I just really appreciate how they seem to not take themselves seriously at all. I mean they devote like 1 or 2 episodes in the beginning of the season then 1 or 2 in the end of the season to the story but besides that it's just a bunch of random insanity. And Rick is like the most dynamic cartoon character ever. I love Roger in American Dad because he can basically do anything, but Rick is like 100x more dynamic than Roger even is. Which means the show is only limited by the imagination of the writers. Which they've shown to be pretty damn imaginative.

if rick can survive being turned into a pickle, what can't he do? I know it's a comedy and that isn't the point, but it kinda kills any suspense or tension if he keeps getting out of more and more ridiculous situations. it was funny though, so i don't mind that much.

..and that they keep bringing up cronenberg world reinforces that it doesn't even matter to him what happens to family. I seems this season is going to be about him growing emotionally, which it what turns good shows bad, like sopranos, boardwalk empire, vinyl, etc.

also, conchairto is my favorite cartoon villain ever.

Well they HAVE killed core characters, they just then move to alt-universes with new versions of those dead characters. They at least don't ignore the characters feeling the emotional weight of such a unique form of grieving/loss. Like, if the Summer we've had for almost 2 seasons now were to be killed, wouldn;t you be a little sad, even if they replaced her with a new Summer the very next week?

The first season was the freshest thing I'd seen in a long time. The second season was pretty good. Right now though I think the attempt to include a narrative other than just Rick and Morty on random space adventures really takes away from the things I liked about the show. I really like when they play with concepts like the broken time episode when they represented multiple realities simultaneously, or when you see the terrifying diversity of galactic civilization. Or little things like in the first episode when Morty is shooting at the alien from the galactic federation and Rick assures him that they're only robots, and Morty shoots the guys leg off causing him to scream, and Rick responds with, they're bureaucrats Morty they're practically robots. Or when the butter robot is faced with his existence. Or the reaction dogs have to seeing themselves enslaved. Or Roy: a life well lived.

Basically what I see lacking this season is intelligence and a sense of adventure that explores concepts in a novel way, and in its place is the boring attempt to write a narrative for characters I don't really care about. I want Rick and Morty to continue to boldly go where no one has gone before, without being weighed down by personal issues turned into an entire episode.

Capeshit parody aside, Rick's commentary on superhero film tropes and playing a drunk mad scientist version of Jigsaw was pretty funny. I loced the one part near the end with Morty strapped into the rocketship and watches thaf video of Rick and it turned out it wasn't for him but against him.

On a related note, this video was hilarious. I'd love to see more of Rick and Morty re-enacting real life events - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTWdP5DMdsM

Pickle-rick was an incredible episode of television.

Pickle-rick was philosophically very interesting and this show in general just has an amazing way of ironically layering a lot of deeper meanings on some of the most nihilistic shit I've ever seen.

Mainly the episode was a mad romp through varied and diverse set of movie tropes but I think the counseling scene really brought that stuff to a real place with character development and that's something that really got people.

Hey guys. New to thread. TL;dr but I see what people are discussing...and...look...I liked first season a lot. Second season was a disappointment...was hoping this season would be tight again...and...just no. There's never any payoff. The entire show is a family guy tier cocktease story development wise. I literally turned if off halfway through the guardians of the galaxy parody episode. It just...wasn't funny. It felt monotonous, and tired...and I knew the episode would go nowhere, like 80% of the episodes in the series, so I just turned it off and watched king of the hill instead. I'm watching every episode of koth because I was really too young to appreciate it when the show was on the air.

My philosophy professor (taking PHIL for more than arts credits lel) fucked with Russell, and one of his biggest take home points was that everyone engages in philosophy to some degree, and that there is no inherent value in more rigorous forms over lay-people philosophizing while staring at the stars or into a campfire or something.

One of the things that makes Rick and Morty great is that it can cram a philosophical concept into a two minute segment, and handle it better than most feature length films.

That's the standard that this is being held to, and you're being a pretentious dick for pretending anyone is suggesting otherwise. If this is the first point of contact for some kid into philosophical inquiry, more's the better.

Also, you asked if someone specializes in Analytic or Continental philosophy. Dude shut the fuck up, you just tipped your hand, and now anyone who knows shit knows you don't.

No shit. Knowing the difference between Analytic and Continental philosophy does not make you special. It means you've taken an intro to philosophy course.

The fact that you're making fun of Continental philosophy, like that isn't completely passe, means you weren't paying enough attention in said course.

>I'm just saying everyone else is taking the pop-nihilistic shit too seriously.

It's really more pop-existentialism/absurdism than anything, and the theme of the show is just as much "Family Values in the Face of Adversity" as any family sitcom.

You're the only one here taking it seriously. The only other people taking it seriously are the "ZOMFG RICK AND MORTY IS THE GREATEST LEL" faggots who are buying RIck and Morty emoticons and plush toys and shit. The show's creators are making fun of those people plenty (largely by stealing their money), and the people capable of enjoying a cartoon are making fun of you.

I've been a fan of Roiland since House of Cosbys. I'm not going to suddenly stop liking Rick and Morty because some random on the internet points out to me that watching cartoons isn't equivalent to actually studying and engaging in philosophy.

Great episode this week. I liked its focus on Jerry and Rick's relationship and how it's impacted their family. The thing I enjoy about this show is how they can come up with these crazy action scenes and put it all together like the roller coaster scene on the roller coaster and not being able to die and coming back to life, that is till they're above the immortality zone. The other plot with Beth, Summer and Morty was alright but my favorite part of that was seeing the customer service agents actually being part of that machine and being released. Loved that end credits scene too.

The modern internet is all about being a contrarian now. In the past, being an obnoxious asshole shouting "I DON'T LIKE POPULAR THING" everywhere was met with scorn. Today, though, you can shout out how much you hate a popular thing on the internet... but then, someone else will say the same thing! And it's the greatest feeling in the world to know that someone else out there in the world is just as much of an obnoxious faggot as you are.

I can't get into seinfeld or IASIP, both very popular but very different shows. Doesn't mean I don't think it's funny, some shows have a "hook" for people, some don't. You put an episode in front of me, i'll watch it, i'll laugh at it, but I probably won't watch it on my own volition.

Rick and Morty hooked me, as I'm a bit of a nerd, I enjoy the existential humor mixed in with what are basically fart jokes. Although I can understand why that doesn't suit some people.

The shows quality has dipped this season, yes. But not substantially, not to the level like some mouthbreathers screeching I've been seeing online. I think Dan Harmon is just playing with ideas. I'm enjoying the ride, but I wish it was a little less ride and a little more joke.

Popularity is what happens when a show is good and so lots of people like it. Nobody, nobody on this earth, starts to like something just because it's popular. People are much more inclined to be like you, and run away from a show when their fragile sense of individuality is brought into question

You're right, Star Wars continued relevance and popularity after all this time is because every movie of the last 40 years has been a masterpiece. No one started liking Star wars because it was a pop culture phenomenon. That'd make it a fad. And fads don't exist, because no one likes things just because of popularity., no sir.

The point is that it's not based purely on quality. There are novelty values and fashion that contribute to its popularity.
There are plenty of sci fi movies and series that deserve much more praise. Star Wars sucks dick compared to many of the greats that don't get as much attention.

What do you mean by "best product"? How are you measuring best? How can you possibly objectively measure best if not by the number of people who like it?
Of course popularity doesn't correlate with YOUR idea of quality, or MY idea of quality. It's all subjective - Star Wars is complete and utter bollocks.

Ratings would be a good indicator

Idk man, it's just what people do. I'm sure if you looked it up you would see that a lot of the most popular series don't get as great of ratings as many lesser known series.
I've humored football, which I think is an utterly crappy and boring sport, just so that I can hang out with people that I like, like at super bowl parties and such.

Sorry I kinda derailed and I'm high, but I kinda agree. I think that people are being contrarians simply because Rick and Morty is kinda a 'hot topic'. I hate that phrase, but people are talking about it a lot and it's guaranteed to get a reaction if you give it shit. But then there certainly are people who feel the need to go against the grain, and if they see "normies" love it then they just have to say it's shit. Then also there are the cynics that see everything as shit, especially if the normies love it.

TLDR there are a lot of motivations for being a fag internet troll.

They made the cute rats ugly. Just think about that for a second. They made the CUTE RATS, UGLY...because it's ok to kill ugly things, but never cute ones...no matter how much more hilarious it would have been to kill cute rats, because faggot bullshit retards.

They took it from hilarious to WHO GIVES A FUCK all because some low T homos vaginas got a little too tight when the cutesy wootsy wats reminded them of their stupid fucking pet rat they have because they're so odd and fucking unique and I fucking hate them all in that god damn office with their stupid fucking god damn coffee and their worthless fucking snarkey shit.

Animatic gives a hint about what they were supposed to originally look like.

Easily the worst episode, no facet of it was good.
That episode was a miss. But if Roiland didn't TRY all this shit Rick & Morty would be nothing, it would be in the hall of unremarkable, interchangeable animated family sitcoms with Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, American Dad, etc.

Imagine Rick & Morty but it's just written by Dan Harmon. At the start of each episode Rick announces to the family, to their concerned astonishment, some questionable belief of his, which becomes the topic of the episode. They all rally around him to try to change his mind. There are no natural conversations about anything, the purpose of every line is to set up someone else to deliver a punchline. You can almost hear the studio audience laughing. The episode ends with Rick learning a lesson (or the same lesson every week, who cares) and then delivering a speech about it over soft piano music, then the family all hug, roll credits.

I thought the song was kinda underwhelming but I like the rest of the episode. I enjoyed the hell out of those cult bits, and those weird giant head creatures. I can't think of a single episode I hate entirely, it's always just individual bits that bomb for me. The second cable episode even had parts I liked. It's the worst episode in the series imo but that plumbus bit was great.

I wonder what she would think if she saw his old solo cartoons. some of it was like some sort of demented old newgrounds shit where they can't really draw but they go super detailed and gross with everything and don't really have a lot of jokes. not that I outright hate grody shit, I loved King Star King, and some of roiland's shorts were seriously good. But KSK was filled with all sorts of adventure and visual creativity too, conversely, one of roiland's old shorts had a bit where it's just a live action video fo some dude jamming his entire head into some morbidly obese woman's crotch, just out of nowhere. wondershowzen could pull that sort of thing off well but there it just seemed dumb and unpleasant.

I didn't mind this most recent episode but it really highlighted how severely disappointed I am with the series as a whole. The premise of it is perfectly set to tell an incredible postmodernist story but instead they use the multi-verse concept to shoehorn obvious, well-worn references into every conceivable fucking corner.

I compare Rick and Morty to a video game which came out recently Tides of Numenera, the plot of which I will briefly describe
It tells the story of a scientist who uses his incredible knowledge of technology/magic to single-handedly end a war and commit genocide against an entire species that was threatening his home. However, his daughter is fatally injured by some strange device of theirs. As he tries fruitlessly to bring back his daughter, he makes increasingly astounding leaps in technology. Eventually, he becomes a time-bending, dimension-hopping, immortal god. The Changing God. Things start to get weird, and confused. He gets lost in different narratives throughout realities, sometimes forgetting his goal of bringing back his daughter but always being pulled back to it. Different versions of himself begin fighting, some for the original and others against. Their wars are impossible, with single battles taking place across several realities, time periods, and mental landscapes wherein the same recruited mortals will be killed and brought back a thousand times across various timelines. In the end, as the original Changing God seeks to rewrite the very laws of the universe to bring his daughter back, he awakens some unspeakable meta-universal guardian that seeks to destroy him and his clones across all timelines and realities, in order to bring his postmodernist paradox, which threatens the very nature of sense and reality, to an end. Eventually, it succeeds.[spoiler]

Rick and Morty has such great potential to tell a story like this. To challenge not just narrative structure but the concept of narrative. I especially thought of this seeing the Ricks and Mortys fight each other. There's so much room for a conflict of narratives, for something messy and mysterious. Alas it's all wasted on the worst improv I've seen in my life and cliche cultural references.

I really liked the "Reveal". I know it's just a cartoon and things are a tad different but I fucking hated the "Man in Black" reveal from WestWorld. No real spoilers here, just the idea of doing a shitload of flashbacks to remind the audience the twist is happening and this is how the twist worked. All we get here is a quick photo because that's all we need. Glad the writers didn't feel their viewers were dumb enough to have that spoon fed to them.

Loved the episode, the past few have been great. Season started off slow but it was never straight up bad IMO. Things are back on track. The past few episodes have been some of the best in the series IMO.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewers head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

I honestly don't know where the meme that Rick and Morty is supposed to be, or that it see's itself as, some kind of intellectual show. I've always felt that it was more kind of silly and simple humor. I mean, Rick is billed as the smartest person ever, but whenever it comes to trying to explain anything that he does using science it's always nonsense or farts that are the explanation.

This show has always been the spiritual successor to Futurama in my eyes, but they've never tried to insert the same kind of "nerd jokes" that Futurama did, even though they deal with a lot of the same subject matter. I think that's partially because Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland aren't nearly as smart as David X. Cohen and and the Futurama writing crew, et al, but also because Rick and Morty was always a more low-brow, silly show to begin with.

Anytime a show become AAA+ mainstream tier television, you're going to get your superfans and your hipsters. The superfans are people who buy into this meme, that Rick and Morty is an intellectual show, and they feel good about that even though it really isn't, as if practically anything on TV could be described as an intellectual pursuit. THen there are the hipster's who see people that they deem to be "beneath them" enjoying sometihng that they may or may not have enjoyed previously and immiediatley switch gears and put all their energy into hating on it. Or it's just people who see a lot of people enjoying something and decide to shit on it because if a bunch of people like something, then they must total unironic fags.

Personally, I like the premise of Rick and Morty more often than the execution. There's infinite possibilities for our titular characters to engage with, and more often then not I find myself enjoying the shenanigans much the same way I enjoyed Futurama. It's silly television, with some good jokes, and some cool sci-fi premises. That's what I come for each week and I'm relatively satisfied most of the time.

Enjoying things unironically is for faggots though, amirite?

you're view of intellectualism is far too rigid to appreciate rick and morty. The thing is it isn't a "smart" show scientifically, at least not always or even mostly, but it does explore psychology, philosophy, socio-economic issues, etc. A plethora of subjects too vast to name individually. I was most surprised by the junging ideas personally. Not to mention the brilliance with which the hero's journey archetype is handled.

Like most art if you think it's shallow you're just simply not looking- often time's willingly because of personal bias.

HOLY SHIT EVIL MORTY FINALLY RETURNS!!!!
I've been waiting SO long for something regarding that to come up again. That was one of my favorite concepts and it's been so long that I legitimately thought they'd abandoned it. I hope what they just cracked open is revisited by the seasons end. And I hope Phoenix-Person factors in as well.

It's crazy because I had no idea what to expect from this episode, but a random thought that floated through my head as I started it up was I hope Evil Morty returns at some point it's also good to see that the Citadel concept wasn't abandoned after C-137 destroyed the shit outta it. I wonder....if all the major developments like Birdperson's wedding being a bust. Rick's arrest and subsequent escape and destruction of the Galactic Government and Council of Ricks, the partial destruction of the Citadel, the election....was all the doing of Evil Morty. Pulling strings, creating volatile situations and pushing them into boiling over, all to create a perfect opportunity for him to sieze power, which is undoubtedly just another step in his greater plan. Whatever that plan is...I wonder if C-137 is actually Evil Morty's original Rick? And if they're the originals. Like Rick and Morty 1 or Rick and Morty A-001 or whatever. And next week's "Morty looks at a turtle that makes him know literally everything" episode lends credence to the Morty is young Rick theory, but that theory still has a lot of holes and paradoxes for me to buy it . Idk

Anyway, fantastic episode. Easily one of the best of the entire series! This shit, these concepts and outrageous situations and parodies are exactly what got me hooked on the show. No other show does this kind of shit, and the ones that try don't do it anywhere near as good. Just really good, smart writing. Not "smart writing" like Futurama where they just haphazardly try to cram as many references to science and math as possible. Actual clever, well crafted writing. Not to knock Futurama, of course. Love thatbshow too, but there's "smart writing" as in jokes and puns and subtle referenced to math and physics and other sciences and whatnot and smart writing as in...well I already pretty much explained it.

I fear the day this season ends and the long wait until the new season begins.

I despised interdimensional cable. They were all improv skits and they were awful and unoriginal. The Rick and Morty team does not have good improv. I liked this episode much more and I was actually feeling like it was gonna go in another direction. I was really hoping that this episode would be the origin story for evil morty. A morty who only possessed the worst memories of Rick and himself. But oh well I guess pointless butt jokes are better.

I preferred the ID cable because it was fun and surreal to begin with, but it would have got tiring and they had to do *something* equivalent for this series. Other than the squirrel thing I didn't enjoy this either, the whole "here are clips we didn't use in other episodes because they weren't good enough" hints (whether that was true or not) sort of spoiled it.

I saw a compilation of all the [as] links Lee Hardcastle made and gave up watching after 30 seconds just feeling like it was totally pointless, just a homage to something with no context or narrative. This episode felt very similar.

Memories extracted from Jerry are stored on carts.
Memories extracted from Morty or Rick are stored in vials.
The memory extracted from Jerry of Jerry fucking up was stored in a yellow cart.
So we can assume a yellow vial would be a memory extracted from Morty that Jerry fucked up.
A dark purple vial would be a memory extracted from Morty that Sleepy Garry fucked up.

I hope Rick's line at the beginning of that episode, about people being held hostage by their ideas, was a "lol fuck you" to all the people who now expect more Evil Morty now that he's in charge of the Citadel. We'll never see Evil Morty again and everyone will lose their shit over it.
I'm one of those people; I've read the theories about him and rewatched the Citadel episode just to look for clues about what he's doing (for example, the first time through I missed that the school Morty's were farming Megafruit after the school shut down).

I agree with >>388439, Morty's Mind Blowers was mediocre at best, and it looked even worse following The Ricklantis Mixup.

According to polygon.com, this week's episode was some trite "family values" bs episode about how humans are flawed thus we have a tendency to evade responsibility. NO WAI!!! TELL ME MOAR!!!

How great it would be if it were just Roiland. These catering-to-a-broader-audience/for the whole family episodes suck(like the kids dealing with the divorce episode). What made this series personally fun for me was the absurdist plots with a touch of actual science. I can't help but think Harmon and the other writers are pushing it into the rest of the Family Guy/Simpson/American Dad rubbish.

even the very first episode had the jerry beth marraige drama stuff and it was never good. they want it to be a comedy with "srs emoshunz" like futurama but they aren't nearly as good at the drama part, even futurama wasn't perfect at it. there were bits that were clearly hammy, drama for the sake of drama, or just unrealistic. that said I thought summer was boring and annoying until she started getting better storylines like the one with her and satan. maybe season 4 will make me like jerry and beth? I still think the show should trim the fat and just be rick morty and sometimes summer fucking around across the universe though.

>>388461
roiland's rick and morty alone would just be a more fucked up version of King Star King but with some science. not that I wouldn't enjoy that, but the show does benefit from roiland and harmon balancing each other.

>blah blah blah buzzwords

I'm honestly a bit worried that season 4 is gonna be bland and repetitive as hell, or double down on everything that isn't rick and morty having absurd adventures, but season 3 has had the same rate of good to boring episodes as the first two seasons, so I figure we could get at least one or two more equivalent seasons.

I agree both points you made to me and the first guy. To be fair, Harmon was probably the inspiration behind the Evil Morty taking over the citadel episode(which was great IMO). However, I feel like him and the cadre of female writers are the ones turning it into another boring animated family sitcom. The wackiness and absurdity was what got me into this series.

last episode was way better than the usual interdimensional cables are. it's beyond retarded how you say the episode before this was great and dont like this one... the episode before wasnt even rick and morty it was thinly veiled (and i mean graphene thinness even a retarded gorilla could get) commentary and had practically nothing to do with rick and morty other than it being sci fi. but "lol omg the mortys are black people so clever." the episode before this has been done a bajillion times as opposed to 99% of other R&M episodes which are incredibly unique concepts

You know, just gonna throw this out there - Harmon could just be running on empty. I mean, this shit ain't easy. The show is a good show. But keeping that high level of quality can't be easy. Maybe he is necromancing old Family Guy concepts from their collector series DVD graveyard because he sort of shot his wad. All the good stuff he could do has kinda been done now. He had a solid three series. That is nothing to shit on. Maybe he is like an aging jock and needs to just stop playing lest someone gets hurt?

I'd say people who try and draw any consistent themes or meanings from Rick and Morty are fucking retarded. The show is an excuse for cultural references/ripoffs tied together by shallow nihilism and angst. If you think it's anything more than that you are not very smart.

In most of the episodes they usually purposefully contradict any message that may have been discernible, mostly because if they didn't it would turn out horrifically cliche, like an after-school special. Besides that it's pretty clear they put almost no effort or planning into any of the episodes. Meaning can't exist without purpose and Harmon and Roiland pretty much seem to only yell and jerk off at each other.

ok buddy boy

Anyway this episode was good, and I haven't liked many episodes this season. I was ready to hate it because you all said it was just a clip show but it literally isn't, it's original scenarios and there is actually a narrative behind it, unlike Interdimensional Cable. Every clip felt like classic Rick & Morty, although we haven't really had any classic Rick & Morty moments this season. It's almost like every good concept they came up with got stuffed into one episode and the rest of the season has just been left with Simpsons drama and homages to Mad Max and Saw.
Anyway it was really good and so was the previous episode. I hope the final 2 episodes are equally good but without having a gimmick.

Also, tonight's episode was pretty good.

I've been kinda harsh on this season. And it's not like I don't like the episodes, I really enjoy them. But there were a lot of 9/10 and 10/10's last season and season 1 and it feels like there's only been one of those this season and the rest are 7/10's. I guess it would have been unrealistic for me to expect it to keep that 10/10 magic it had for so many episodes in the past. It's still a lot of fun though.

Am I the only one who thinks the latest episode (s03e08) was incredibly weak? The whole Froopyland thing came across as something a couple of 14 year olds would think up after smoking their first joint. It felt so frivolous and bland, as if they were trying incredibly hard to be edgy, but failing miserably.

The whole episode had very cheap feel to it, both joke-wise and plot-wise. Of course the latest wave of fanboys are lapping it up because they're a bunch of sheep.

I really liked the latest episode. There at least seems to be growth for beth. Rick's rant about how intelligent are above moral values is just as grating as it was before, but i really liked the open ending. I thought beth's back story to be interesting and am satisfied with her character development. the b-plot was meh. I really liked the imaginary land setup. This is the first time i've seen a trope of a world of incestuous cannibalization. Anybody know what that's a reference to? I'm impressed with how well they were able to establish that world dynamic within the first 6 minutes, but i guess it's because it was a novel setup for me.

I found it very interesting when you consider that previously Rick has been the only main character to directly break the fourth wall, and now that Beth's relegated him to being, in his words, "lowest status" member of the family, she's taken on the fourth wall breaking trait.

I guess other than that the episode was basically Tom & Jerry with the US president.

With every passing episode I come to despise Jerry more and more. Holy shit, he is just a terrible, idiotic, critically insecure, self absorbed piece of shit. He really is a parasite in every way.

Anyway, this season was great. Loved every episode, finale was classic Rick and Morty. Love how no matter how hard the government tries to use the most advanced, craziest tech on earth, it always winds up being totally useless against Rick because they're really just trying to catch up to him. Especially with their dime store "deficit-tripplling" teleported.

And the scene where Rick is smoking that crazy alien weed is ASKING to be made into .gifs for 420chan use. Someone ought to get on that.

rick and morty is one of those shows where opinions on individual episodes range wildly. I've had episodes where my opinion on just the individual scenes varied a lot.

To be quite frank, one does need to have a rather significant amount of intellect to comprehend Richard & Mortimer. Why, just yesterday I attempted to show my cousin (who has just entered his seventh year) the episode where the titular character, Rick, turns himself into a pickled cucumber. He laughed at the mere thought of a man become fermented vegetable, but I sat there watching, lamenting the deeper message: the death of intellectual pursuit, the desensitization to societal filth, muck, and mire, and the shameless abandonment of psychological understanding.

At the end my cousin turned to me and proclaimed, "I am the scientist that was once named Rick, but I have now become a pickled cucumber. Look at me, I am pickled Rick!", and I could not help but smile, not that the line he had just recited was humorous, but at the realization that this, in front of my very eyes, was the sum of what the episode had just warned against.

I cannot blame my cousin just as much as a man cannot blame a dog for consuming its own bile. It merely does not know any better, and what could be said about a man who judges things he does not have merit to judge?

The show is alright guys. It's not south park in the 00s, or Simpsons in the 90s. It's a show that has a cult following and is not (I repeat not) mainstream in the true sense.
And it's not the fanbase ruining the show. It's Dan Harmons dangerously destructive personality and alcoholism that derails shit behind the scenes. Stop bitching at boogymen and realize Harmon is not a great guy (this entire time when he tells us so on his podcast, he's not joking).

I can tolerate the fans who think it's smarter than it is, the kind who think "yellow shirts" is a reference to some Thai rebellion and not the fact that Morty wears a yellow shirt.

But..

Rick and Morty is the new Fight Club, angry little white boys are literally taking the show the opposite of it's intentions. Rick is not an aspirational character.

I watched the last two episodes. They were good and I agree that season 3 was a step down from 2 but it's still a great and hilarious cartoon. The whole fight between President Keith David and Rick was awesome. The show has some fun action scenes and Beth possibly being a clone does have storyline potential for next season.

As for the show's rabid fanbase, you're bound to have some vocal and noisy apples in the bunch. It doesn't really bother me how obsessed people are about the show although people trying to find deeper meanings for this show I do find ridiculous. Wish I could have gotten some Szechuan sauce though.

the larger a fanbase gets the larger the bad parts get, and the bigger the bad part is the worse the worst of it is. and if it has serious mainstream popularity it will be even worse. you really can't enjoy media at all if you spend all your time focusing on fanbases. you can laugh and gawk at them sure, but you can't let them get to you. though if a creator tries to pander to the more rabid sections of their fanbase it often ruins the work. Personally I haven't seen that in Rick and Morty, it's still decent. It's not the best adult swim show ever or even the best scifi comedy cartoon but it hasn't pandered or gotten a massive drop in quality, so far each season has had it's share of good and boring bits. It's good enough for me to keep up with it at least.

that bit the guy above you said about themed weddings though god damn. I can't get over that. fandom weddings are the worst idea for planning a wedding ever, dating back to star wars and star trek weddings of yore. or god forbid fandom themed funerals, I've seen those on the internet before though not irl.

Fucking this.
If you can't enjoy the show because you can't handle that some kids bicker about shit that has no meaning to you (like "secrets" in the show and shit), you should just give up and throw away your television.

I used to hang at the GoT-circlejerk, it became shit when it was filled with more people than a healthy discussion could handle and people would just post tinfoil and call each other stupid shit, so I stopped hanging there.
I still love the show tho, and it's the same thing with Rick and Morty. Sometimes you just gotta accept that some people obsess about things, and that every thing in the world attracts some kind of obnoxious fan. And the best place to find those, is obviously on places such as fan-sites and shit.

It's a good show because it serves it's purpose, making people laugh. If it doesn't make you laugh, it's not the show for you. People taking shit too serious isn't the showrunners fault and it doesn't have to be a problem for you if you don't let it.

>>389411
That's a bit unfair I think, I'm 22 and none of my peers (those that I know personally) are borderline crazy about the show. I think it's more about social intelligence than age, if you know that it's uncool to act like a fucking asshole about things you probably won't, even if you disagree about something you're passionate about.

I don't know tho, you might be on to something, but honestly I like to think that most people my age have a pretty decent comment etiquette in comparison to older generations.
