[Rick & Morty] gets renewed for 100 years!!!

Kristmas KthulhuKristmas Kthulhu Currently Kultist KthulhuRegistered User regular
Well, honestly more like 10 more if the creators keep up their current pace of release.



Fans and soon-to-be fans rejoice!

Are you a fan? Have you seen the official Run the Jewels music video featuring Rick & Morty?

Music video spoilers:
At first, I totally wrote it off as an excuse for some visually entertaining scenes merely wearing the show's aesthetic like Buffalo Bill wore his victims, but the video's an actual vignette! That shit could easily be canon and fits perfectly with the established world, and this is part of the reason why Rick & Morty is so incredible.

Have you played any of the various video game tie-ins?

I'm counting 6 walls being broken there in that last one, but I am super ready to hear some arguments!

Have you seen the Rickmobile?



What the fuck is it? Can you explain what happens when it shows up in your city to me?

How many times have you watched each season, and what are your personal rankings, with and without commentary?

This is a thread to discuss all the aspects of the multimedia phenomenon co-created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon (in general... no in-depth Pocket Morty strats you fucking nerds) known as Rick & Morty.

So, y'know... ggooo*uuurp*o nuts.

    I hated the first two episodes and by the end of episode 3 it was my favorite show.

    Rick and Morty fans are easily the worst part of Rick and Morty, so I feel like you’re in the clear on that one.

    I never want to talk to another person who watches Rick and Morty ever once in my entire life ever.

    I have avoided watching invader zim precisely because of other people who like invader zim.

    Invader Zim is fine but like many things the fans make me dislike it in retrospect

    I just don't like the aesthetic. There are some funny jokes I've seen, but overall I just could not get enthused.

    One of my step-cousins got me a Pickle Rick shirt because I guess she heard me mention it was one of my favorite episodes I guess, and I like it a lot and will never, ever EVER wear it outside. Being recognized as a Rick and Morty fan is a strong number 2 for social phobias

    There’s a turning point in the first season, specifically episode 6. If that doesn’t make you go, “Oh. Ooooooooooh. That’s why people say the things they do about this show,” then it might just not really be your thing. I really recommend watching up to that point.

    Right after the pickle rick episode aired we went to a renaissance festival and right before we left we sat down to relax for a bit. On the ground someone had dropped one of those big pickles. No fewer than 500 people looked at it for a few seconds and loudly exclaimed "PICKLE RIIIIICK!"

    It was very entertaining

    I'm debating bringing a couple googly eyes next year to enhance the experience

    I liked seasons 1 and 2 but season 3 did not vibe with me at all

    I have no interest in watching another minute of this show honestly

    Feels like season 3 is in part Harmon going off on the turbofans and hammering home, "Hey, hey you idiots, this character you idolize is a piece of shit."

    Which isn't unappreciable, I think.

    3 is in no way tonally different from the other seasons except that it calls out Rick and Beth ( and the rest of the family to a lesser degree)more for being awful.

    Rick wont ever really change. I dont think hes capable of it even though he wants it.

    The rest of the Smiths want to though and thats an interesting premise to build on going forward

    I think Rick losing to Jerry, despite Jerry being the worst, is going to force him into trying to become different.

    I really think he'll try. He seemed genuinely troubled when he realized caring about Morty was something he thought was toxic and he did try to make things right with President Keith David.

    I just dont think itll work

    I'm concerned that they've written themselves into a corner, focusing on all the parallel universe and, talking to the fourth wall, joking about "classic Rick & Morty adventures".

    Season 3 felt like a long ride to nowhere. The first half seems to be setting the table for something and then it just isn't.

    Opposite, actually.

    Why does everyone discussion about rick and morty have to be about the bad rick and morty fans?

    If The Bad People like something that you like you needn’t spend brain joules distancing yourself from them

    Also Toxic rick and toxic morty episode is the smartest, funniest and best episode ever.

    I rewatched Toxic Morty’s monologue at the French restaurant like 5 times

    My only exposure to bad Rick and Morty fans is people complaining about them. Where are we finding all these bad Rick and Morty fans?

    *interview snip*

    Great interview. It's really cool to be able to get glimpses into some stuff behind the scenes of your favorite artist's work while they're contemporary, and I guess I don't really know of a place to digest that for Rick & Morty.

    While looking for an art book just now, I found out there's a comic series with pretty good Amazon reviews. It'll probably be on its way to my place tomorrow.
