Indeed. I'm not as inclined to get annoyed by the amount of trolling going on. Because there is less of it.

If I could have 60 seconds with the guys who write Rick & Morty, I'd take the time to tell them that "one character frantically repeating another character's name a hundred times doesn't count as 'jokes'."

It's like Sting (the wrestler) wrote it. I love Sting, but if you've ever seen any of his promos, they weren't great. He could be getting ready to fight Ric Flair, and he'd be all like, "RIC! I'm tellin' ya, Ric, this Sunday, Ric, at the Great American Bash, Ric, it's gonna be YOU AND ME, RIC! And we're gonna find out, Ric, we're gonna find out who the better man really IS, Ric!" And on and on for a while. He did it with everyone, every single time, for almost 30 years. Really annoying.

Literally every time I catch a second of Rick & Morty, it's the same exact thing, and it's not funny, it's annoying. I don't know. People can like it, I just don't get it.

I think it's part of the joke that he's so drunk he can't speak coherently (I tend to have that problem...), but it's not worth making a bunch of jokes about. Doesn't help that a good portion are the lines are improvisational.

The "searching for a new planet to live on" scenes, however...

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's 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 realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick and Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existencial 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 unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a Rick and Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

Hm, have never watched that, but kind of reminds me of the medication commercial(s) that, while talking about risks and side effects, say the word "bleeding" WAY too many times. Always have to mute or change it after the first several before I gag... Repeated stuff is irritating, I agree. And a word like "bleeding" doesn't make it any better.

I can now be able to get all the Myst games on Steam, including the 5th, which I've never played in the decade+ of my experience with it.

But that means...having to deal with the chair on Revelation...
