Best April Fool's prank in recent history. I loved the episode too.

Is Jerry not going to be in the rest of the season? It seemed like they were setting up for him to leave after this episode.

I imagine we'll see what pathetic shenanigans he's up to while separated from the rest of the family. I hope so, anyways. Jerry is a comedic goldmine.

I just started watching this show, I don't know the last few years "internet loved" cartoons haven't been my thing such as Adventure time or whatever and this seemed to reek of Family Guy humor but it really is closer to Adult Swim, which means it also follows their seasons. I kind of feel bad that I marathoned through season 1 in two days now since I don't have that much left to watch anymore.

Anywho, the humor is just great and fresh, it jumps so quickly that it's able to keep my low attention span in check. :lol:

I'm glad you got into it man. Adventure Time is kinda hit-or-miss but I love it for the most part, Regular Show is mostly good, Steven Universe is pretty cool too. I haven't watched Family Guy in years because it felt like they just kept driving the same jokes into the ground ("Shut up , Meg!"). Bob's Burgers is usually pretty good. But yeah anyways, Rick and Morty is a pretty great cartoon and I'm really excited for the rest of S3!

I personally wouldn't call Adventure Time to be "Family Guy" humor. In fact, I think it's just gotten super existential :lol: . It's certainly a far cry from the 'lol randum' humor of its spawning.

Hopefully these are just rumors and that both Harmon & Roiland are still on good terms with each other. Otherwise, if the opposite is true, then oh crap indeed.

It would be a bummer if the show was cancelled due to Dan and Justin bickering with each other.

Just rumors luckily. Roiland and Harmon both addressed the rumor on Twitter.

Roiland: "I'm so sorry guys. Sorry about this super factual information. @danharmon and I are so sorry for this totally believable and true story."

Harmon had a long multi tweet response.

I didn't mean to compare them but I did notice that the second season had more forced "look we're such an intelligent show" and "look how deep we are with philosophy and emotions". They tried too hard in some places where int he first season it felt more natural.

I still love it and ended up marathoning the whole show in about a week because I was hooked and can't wait to see more episodes but yeah, it was just something I noticed.

Worst television of your life? I wasn't impressed with the episode, but I didn't think it was that bad.

To be fair both this episode and the last one (the Mad Max parody) didn't seem near as good as the rest of the show. I hope season 3 gets better, especially after the premiere which I did really like.

Yeah, the Pickle Rick was a little dumb, but honestly, they missed a Chris Chan joke with someone saying "The Pickle Man tricked me again". It was a little oddly violent for Rick as far as I'm concerned, since there was really no reason for it; he usually has one, but this just seemed like violence for violence's sake.

I did like the joke about Rick putting a bottle in the recycling where it belonged. And the family therapy B plot.

I mean I'm enjoying it as well but I definitely notice a difference, I just got into Rick and Morty like 3 months ago so it's not like I'm an "old" fan. I marathoned everything and had already noticed S2 was weaker than S1 even if still awesome.

I do think the writers just don't have as many ideas or are already falling into the Simpsons/Family Guy trap where they're all just shadows of their former selves. I can't put my finger on it yet but yeah..

It was a good one!
I had hoped for an episode that showcased other Ricks and Mortys and we got exactly that. It also shed a lot of light on how exactly the Citadel functioned and it was all very interesting.
And that ending. Man, did they pull off a great ending for this episode! It's got me excited for what's to come.

Totally the best episode of season 3 yet IMO. I got totally bait and switched by the teaser two weeks ago, and instead got something completely unexpected and great.

I figured out Evil Morty would probably return from early on,
but it took me a while to realize which one it was. Still gave me chills when the song from his last appearance started to play. That was the one plotline I was really hoping for expansion on this season. I wonder if he'll show up again soon considering C-137 Rick's line at the end of the episode.

Latest episode was decent.
A pretty big step down from the previous episode, but it had some good stuff going for it.
These little clip-show episodes can be fun at first, but after a while the clips start to get kinda boring IMO.

I did like the fact that
Summer apparently gets paid to fix Rick and Morty's bigger screw ups. It adds a nice bit of character to her.

Hey could someone help me out here?

I've heard nothing but good things about this show and was excited to binge it yesterday at work. By the end of the first episode, I had a headache.

Why?

The amount of times Rick says Morty's name is downright insane. I googled it and found out that it's spoke 113 times. 113 times within a timespan of 24 minutes where he's not even in every scene.

I can understand it seems like a small thing to obsess over but its the way my attention span works. I've stopped listening to the actual show and instead focusing on when the next "Morty!" comes. It's like the "What?" chant in wrestling where the crowd doesn't care about what the wrestler is actually saying, they're just waiting for the pause so they can "What?!"

Anyway, does it become more tolerable as the show goes on? I want to enjoy this show but if it's like that throughout the entire series I'm done.

I also got into the show late only a few months ago.

The first episode while needed makes it feel like it's just another "adult" comedy but it's a lot more fun, stick to it and you'll be happy. The second season isn't as good as the first, it's still really good but you began to see that they began to believe all the hype the show was getting it and while it's a great show it's overhyped as the most "intelligent" show.

The third season suffers even more from this and both the people writing and watching the show feel like it's this untouchable comedy. The last two episodes have been better but overall the third season is already another decline.

He does say Morty a lot but I got used to it, it's part of what makes the Rick err, Rick.

I just marathoned the series myself after my little brother got me hooked. Rick's dialogue becomes much less grating after the first episode, IIRC.

ProphetofGanja
09-20-2017, 10:16 AM
I feel the opposite, I feel like this third season is even better than the second, and I liked the second a lot. It is annoying how a lot of people online are like "oh, I'm soo smart, I appreciate this show sooo much more than you" and I mean it is a pretty smart and well-written show, but it still resorts to poop and dick jokes a lot of the time.

Morty's Mind Blowers was a neat take on an anthology episode while still having a canon plot, unlike The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror installments, as mentioned in the episode.

I'm eager to get more information on Rick and Beth's relationship in the next episode, especially what their life together was like before Rick left, and maybe we'll get some info on Beth's mom/Rick's wife. Then we get to see Evil Morty again in the last episode of this season, and that should be very interesting.

If you pay attention, the music in the end with the people dead in space is the EXACT SAME SONG as what played at the end of the season 1 episode when Evil Morty walked into the crowd at the end.

Honestly, the pilot episode is pretty strange. Going back and rewatching it after I had seen the whole series, it just feels a little disjointed from the rest of the show. It gets better, trust me. And they tone down both Rick saying "Morty" like every sentence and his burping.

On another note, I really enjoyed "Morty's Mind Blowers". It was a nice break from Interdimensional Cable while still having similar bizarre/funny moments.

Last night's episode "The ABC's of Beth" was insanely great. It wasn't what I expected, at all, but I guess this whole season has been about subverted expectations. They tell us we're going to get an episode that's a self-contained adventure in Atlantis and it instead features countless Ricks and Mortys other than the ones the show follows. "The ABC's of Beth" did a lot to highlight the f#cked up family drama dynamic that the Smith-Sanchez is subject to. Beth realizing that she is already like her dad in the ways she never wanted to be was poignant. Also the end credits scene was gold lmao

Yeah the ending scene credit was great lol. I thought this episode would be a let down, but was a lot better then expected. It begs the question though did Beth decide to stay or go?? Is the Beth in the house now a clone/robot? If makes me wonder why Rick didn't leave a clone of himself in any of the timelines for Beth?

If makes me wonder why Rick didn't leave a clone of himself in any of the timelines for Beth?

Maybe there are some realities where Rick did leave a clone of himself in place to stay with Beth and his wife, or maybe Rick didn't have the know-how to clone a realistic enough version of himself at the time he left the family. He's undoubtedly increased his body of knowledge since he left the family, traveled the multiverse, and returned. So who knows. They may never say one way or another if Beth chose to stay or go

Agreed. Between the Council of Ricks, the Galactic Federation, and all the other things the show has created and fleshed-out, it's world is becoming pretty full. I loved the episode with the Jerry daycare center. I do want to hear more about Rick's time away from his family, traveling the multiverse. A flashback episode with Morty, Summer, Beth and Jerry younger

Here's discussion by Nerdist News on "The ABC's of Beth"
PKPspqZTh4E

But of course, Dan and Justin meant to left it ambiguous and may never reveal whether Beth stayed or left. Since there are infinite universes with infinite scenarios of Beth being presented the choice to stay or leave, it ultimately doesn't matter. But fans will still be curious about our particular Beth (even though it's not even the Beth we started the show with).

Latest episode was really good.
I liked seeing more personal interactions between Beth and Rick. And the whole ordeal with Tomy was both hilarious and disgusting. :lol:
I really think Beth left though. It would make sense if she did. Even though it seemed like her family would be reason enough for her to stay, remember: she’s just like her father. He had no qualms abandoning his family for years and then again whenever the population got mutated, I’ve got the feeling that Beth made a similar choice. Plus the fact that the way she interacted with her kids and her dad at the end of the episode was really weird, almost unnatural-like ‘ya know?

It’s weird that the season finale’s already almost here.
Feels like just recently we started getting new episodes again.
It’ll stink having to wait again for more episodes. Hopefully it won’t be another year and a half.
Wonder if we’ll see the whole Phoenix Person thing pay off in the finale, or if they’ll hold off on it until next season. And then we’ll almost definitely have to wait for more Evil Morty.

I did just realize that there's a bit of a parallel with the "fake Beth" as there was with the "fake Summer and Morty" at the start of the season. The unnatural behavior, the heightened affection and agreeability...

There's a theory running around that Summer might be pregnant from her time in the Mad Max world, but I doubt it. She's just jaded from the divorce and spending so much time with Rick, and the months in the Mad Max world.

I've heard that the writers are already back at it, getting to work on Season 4. Let's hope that's the case. In any case, it ain't nowhere near as bad as the wait between seasons of The Venture Bros.

Well that season finale was...meh.

At some point I blinked/looked away and then became confused as to why Rick got in such a huge brawl with the president in the first place.
The animosity didn't really feel right. The only thing I liked was Beth trying to sort things out. No surprise that she got back with Jerry, but that was coming from a mile away. And I REALLY liked Morty putting his foot down and saying 'no' to Rick, to the point of ditching him.

I thought the episode was really good. I came in with VERY low exceptions though. I thought this episode would be bad and a let down bc evil forty was not in it. I thought the fight with the president was great. I was laughing my ass off with the banter. I couldn't believe Morty stole his portal gun!! Morty is starting to show a little evil forty in him.

Also just so everyone knows this was not supposed to be the finale. Unfortunately bc of the writer fighting over Morty's mind blowers for so long and other disagreements that the season was cut short. The season was supposed to be 14 episodes instead of 10

Yeah, the fight choreography was great, as always. I really liked all of the counter-measures the President had squirreled away for just such an occasion. And the dialogue between Rick and the President in the Oval Office leading up to their fight was great.

I'm kind of glad we didn't see Evil Morty again so soon, I think that subplot is going to simmer on the back burner for a while but when it comes back it'll have a lot of weight behind it. Same for Tammy and Phoenix Person.

Yeah it sucks they had to cut back on the number of episodes due to the writing process dragging on, but I think that happened early enough in production that this is still close to what they originally envisioned as the finale.

In the Season 1 finale, Rick jokes about having a new catchphrase, breaks the fourth wall, and the break between seasons is mirrored by the Smith-Sanchez household being frozen in time. The Season 2 finale ends very differently, with the cliffhanger of Rick going to prison for his crimes and Mr. Poopybutthole lamenting how long the break between seasons would be. Season 3 circles back around to the show's lower-stakes starting point, teasing a new status quo, with Beth breaking the fourth wall this time and explaining that things will be more like Season 1 but "more streamlined".

I think people who expected Evil Morty or Tammy and Phoenix Person to make another appearance by the end of this season forget that the show likes to defy our expectations and take sharp turns down unanticipated avenues. They don't want to sacrifice quality by engaging in too much fan service, like bringing back Mr. Meeseeks when the character proved so popular. They'll come back to both of these plot lines at some point but not before some more self-contained, flavor-of-the-week episodes. And of course they'll do interdimensional cable again, but only when they can add another twist or layer to the format to keep it fresh.

I don't have a problem with Evil Morty and Phoenix Person being absent. I mean, Evil Morty first showed up in late season 1 and we saw no hint of him till over halfway through season 3. Birdperson has showed up a bit more, but still pretty infrequently. This show takes it's time with some of it's side plots, and that just makes it more awesome when they show up again.

Super curious to see where season 4 goes, considering the whole dynamic between the family and Rick has changed.

All they had were one of each poster and by the time I got there they had already given them out.

McDonald’s REALLY screwed this one up. Hopefully they’ll try again with better quantities and better distribution, because there are bound to be hundreds of disappointed fans who really want to try the sauce.

I avoided this series like the plague because a lot (most?) of its fans are super annoying, & I was put off by the art style. I caught a few minutes of two different episodes on TV in the last few weeks & they seemed interesting, so I decided to give it a real chance. Ended up watching all 3 seasons in 2 days time, really hooked me. Makes sense, I guess, it's my kinda sci-fi; parallel dimensions, time-hopping, existential horror, etc. paired with a cynical/nihilistic tone. I found a chunk of the humor to be too crass for my personal tastes (I love gross/offensive/gory stuff but not necessarily just for the sake of it, depends) but otherwise it had me laughing out loud quite a bit. I really appreciate that despite how crude it can be, it has its share of poignancy, depth, thought provocation, & character development. Great voice cast as well, I was pleasantly surprised to see so many vets in there, like The Animaniacs trio, LaMarche, Strong, Richardson, etc as well as a host of great guests. Rick & Morty themselves can be a bit grating at times but their respective actors definitely deliver all the same.

Season 1 had the strongest material, no question. The other two focused more on gags, whereas its debut had a greater emphasis on the "science" & "philosophy". I think I liked season 3 more than 2, though they were more or less on par with one another. I'll definitely be watching in real time when there's new stuff.
