semiotix: LucasLuminaro: I don't know the name of the episode, but my favorite one was where there was alien parasites in the house that infuse memories into you.  It was just hilarious.

It was called "Total Rickall." Remember? We watched it together when we were on vacation in the Lost City of Atlantis!


You can actually get a card game based off of the episode:

Bullitt: I'm the only white person left not watching this show, right?


I have yet to see it as well
 
2017-09-29 04:17:02 PM  
My favorite five:

"Meeseeks and Destroy"
Meeseeks are not born into this world fumbling for meaning, Jerry! We are created to serve a singular purpose for which we will go to any lengths to fulfill! Existence is pain to a Meeseeks, Jerry. And we will do anything to alleviate that pain. Just ask...

"Lawnmower Dog"
Where are my testicles, Summer? Where are my testicles, Summer? They were removed. Where have they gone? Oh, wow. That's an intense line of questioning, snuffles. Do not call me that! "Snuffles" was my slave name. You shall now call me snowball, because my fur is pretty and white. Okay, snowball, just calm down, okay? You're scaring me. Scaring you? Tell me, Summer, if a human was born with stumpy legs, would they breed it with another deformed human and put their children on display like the dachshund? Uhhh...

"
The Ricklantis Mixup -aka-Tales from the Citadel"
The division I see is between the Ricks and Mortys that like the Citadel divided, and the rest of us. I see it everywhere I go. I see it in our schools, where they teach Mortys we're all the same because they're threatened by what makes us unique. I see it in our streets, where they give guns to Mortys so we're too busy fighting each other to fight real injustice. I see it in our factories, where Ricks work for a fraction of their boss's salary even though they're identical and have the same IQ.

"Rixty Minutes"
Hey Jon, it's me, Gazorpazorpfield. Boy. [BLEEP] you, Jon. You [BLEEP] dumb, stupid, idiot. Come on, Gazorpazorpfield, go easy on me, huh? You dumb, stupid, weak, pathetic, white, white... uh, uh... guilt, white guilt, milquetoast piece of human garbage. Jeez, Gazorpazorpfield, thats, you know... you're pretty mean to me, but that takes the cake. I don't give a [BLEEP]! I'm Gazorpazorp-[BLEEPING]-field, biatch! Now give me my [BLEEPING] enchiladas!

"Total Rickall"
Never go in my room again.   I didn't!    She's real. She's my biatch of a sister.
 
2017-09-29 04:29:39 PM  
My least favorite is the very recent one about Beth. It was just a weak episode with no good gags, just cheap grossout humor. I'm not against grossout humor, I just want it to be earned.
 
2017-09-29 04:46:26 PM  
My favorites:

1-Pickle Rick
2-Rick Potion #9
3-The Ricklantis Mixup
4-Something Ricked this way comes
5-Big Trouble in Little Sanchez

My least favorite: Look Who's Purging Now

Nope. I mentioned it to two extremely white 30-something men today and neither one had heard of it.

Couple posters saying they don't like the Purge Planet, but no one in the thread has even mentioned Anatomy Park. The requisite shrink everybody down Magic School Bus style episode that every animated show has to do. Plus John Oliver and Jerry's parents getting into some freaky stuff. All the elements sound good, but it's ultimately kind of forgettable.
 
2017-09-29 05:24:39 PM  
I just think of it as "Community" in cartoon form. Kind of. With more swears and obviously the excessive grossness.
 
2017-09-29 06:00:25 PM  
Geeze, was I the only one who enjoyed Interdemensional cable? Mortys Mind blowers was a solid episode but I was looking forward to IC3 all season

Youtube is right over there ----->

Seriously, there is seemingly little attempt to pull the episodes off of it via copyright strikes.  A search for "Rick and Morty season X episode Y" will bring up the full episodes.  And since there's only about thirty episodes, each less than a half hour, it's a pretty easy show to binge watch.

Defeated: Geeze, was I the only one who enjoyed Interdemensional cable?


IC1 was fine, a nice change of pace, but suffered a bit under the weight of the amount of improvised dialogue. IC2 was a bad improv show, animated. Morty's Mind Blowers was a nice change of pace.

I'd really like to watch this, but am late to the game and refuse to pay $3 an episode.

It was sort of a toss up between the two, but, I liked Morty's resignation in his voice.

I just liked the speech, I guess I'm suckered by lofty words (libby-lib).

2017-09-29 08:11:37 PM  
Close Rickcounters of the Rick kind and Ricktlantis mix-up for me are certainly in my top 5 simply because of larger continuity plot threads
 
2017-09-29 08:28:30 PM  
I think the show is at its best when it highlights just how damaged the characters are.  Sure, their damage is pretty central to the entire show's existence, but a few episodes really spell it out and go for the jugular.  Autoerotic Assimilation would be my favorite, followed by the Ricklantis Mixup.  I also loved Pickle Rick, especially for how perfectly Dr. Wong summed everything up at the end.

Get Schwifty may be my least favorite.  Still don't mind watching it, but it seemed a bit lazy compared to some of the brilliance the show has displayed.
 
2017-09-29 09:00:44 PM  
It's hard to pick favorites, but I have to agree that Raising Gazorpazorp was the weakest. Just too many of the jokes were lazy and relied on tired stereotypes, though I did have a good chuckle at "the Great Passive-Aggression".
 
2017-09-29 09:31:40 PM  

CatfoodSpork: My least favorite is the very recent one about Beth. It was just a weak episode with no good gags, just cheap grossout humor. I'm not against grossout humor, I just want it to be earned.


The "big gag" was the immediate realization that a creepy dude diddles doodles and eats them.  but maybe I'm just be an apologist for the episode.  The extended combat scene outside the sushi place was amusing; the kids schooling their dad was nice. The overt exposition from Rick to Beth was interesting becuase if you look past the "no, you're smart" you see Rick reverting to true nihilism where says "nothing you ever do matters and you always eventually lose."

But if you liked "look who' purging now" better than this, that's cool, man.

Just watch it on Youtube, man. There's like every episode on there, and Adult Swim doesn't seem to be issuing DMC notices. I mean, you have multiple ways to watch it free, and you don't even have to sign up for anything to do it. Kinda hard to complain about that.

A weak episode of Rick and Morty is still some of the most entertaining TV out there.

Anatomy Park is my favorite.

If I am showing someone RnM for the first time, I make them watch Lawnmower Dog.

You keep saying it's easy to find on youtube so I checked again but I'm still finding the same shiat: s1e1 broken into parts with the last one missing and the one that's got the whole episode in one video is just a link to the take-down notice.  I'd really like to watch these so if I'm missing something please let me know.

I mean, yeah I've delved into the shadier bits of the internet to watch shows before but they were saying it was easy to find on youtube so I was hoping I'd just overlooked something.

But no, it's not easy to find on youtube and they are taking videos down, just not livestreams of the current season it seems.

Rick Potion #9 was when it sunk in that I was watching something unique. Because right up until the end I thought they were going to find a way to undo everything in typical TV fashion. But they didn't and it was amazing.
