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

I've never seen it either.  I think it's a cartoon?


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. Nothin personnel kid 😎

I think my least favorite is the last time they did inter-dimensional TV. It was a cute gymic, but got a little tiresome.

My favorite episode is the one where Rick tries to clone his long lost dog and Morty spends the whole time being super jealous. And in the end, they found out the dog actually lived a full long life so they decided not to clone him, but the dog actually spent the rest of his life waiting for Rick until it died of loneliness.

That episode was a real tear jerker.

FrancoFile: Big Trouble in Little Sanchez is great, but only for the marriage counseling part of the plot.  Tiny Rick in high school is meh.


Overall I agree with you. But the episode did give me one of my favorite scenes

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!

Grungehamster: This text is now purple: I loved Raising Gazorpazorp. It's a Morty episode. Morty's struggles with Morty Jr. are priceless -- trying to responsibly raise a son, while protecting both the world from it and it from the world, all while being 15 years old and completely over his head are fundamental to the differences between him and Rick.

And despite no one appreciating this, he succeeded. Morty Jr turned out to be a more successful and well-adjusted adult than Beth did.

Yeah: the Morty plot was solid, the Rick plot was tired. My favorite part? When Brad Anderson of Marmaduke fame comes in to help.


I just hope he's eating well.

albuquerquehalsey: Geotpf: loonatic112358: Bullitt: I'm the only white person left not watching this show, right?

I have yet to see it as well

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.

what if they didn't watch it because they don't want to?


So why come into a thread and tell the world that? Not enough attention as a child?

My top 5;

Auto Erotic Assimilation - "We need a hang glider, and a crotchless Uncle Sam costume, and I want the entire field of your largest stadium covered end to end with naked redheads, and I want the stands packed with every man that remotely resembles my father."

Then there the whole suicide attempt at the end that despite the episode exploring the depths of depravity one could engage in if romantically involved with a hive mind just a few minutes earlier both feels real and very sad.

M. Night Shaym-Aliens - My man!

Mortynight Run  - The carnage on the gear planet, Roy

Look Who's Purging Now - Gratuitous carange with an upbeat soundtrack

The Rickshank Rickdemption - This is Rick at his best/worst and it's amazing.

Worst were the Interdimentional Cables and Gazorpazorp.  Real stinkers. Best is definitely Ricks Must Be Crazy.  I have spoken, all other opinions are now invalid.
