I liked it. It was very Rick and Morty of them to do just that.

Ask yourselves: was the episode really that bad, or were your expectations too high?

Personally, I thought it was a better finale than s1's.

May not have been the hardest hitting finale but that was easily the funniest episode of the season. I was howling at Rick and Morty shiat talking and trolling the president all episode. Keith Davis is the best.

That was probably the most fitting finale to the season they had.  Beth discovers that she's happy with Jerry because he cares about her, even if he can't keep up in a variety of ways.  Rick starts the season off overpowered as all get out and ends it still being exactly as OP, but having alienated everyone and thus being unable to use that power.  Funny, he started the season in a literal prison, and he's ending the season in a figurative one.

And Beth is NOT A CLONE!  How many times does Rick have to say that before it sinks in?  She's NOT.

//She's really not

I liked the episode, but it really didn't feel like a season finale.  I think they would have been better served by having this as the penultimate episode, and then follow it up with the Ricklantis Mixup / Tales from the Citadel.  This would serve the double purposes of beginning the episode following the idea of going back to the streamlined basic adventures of season 1, only to immediately subvert it and give us the Evil Morty reveal as a cliffhanger.

OK maybe I'll watch it sober on Tuesdays.


I usually watch it a couple of times drunk (and stoned) and then once sober because I always miss stuff when I'm baked.

Jim_Callahan: Ow! That was my feelings!: [img.fark.net image 850x478]

Is there a reason everyone is expecting those two to come back?

I mean... they're agents of the empire that got Ricked in this season's first episode, wouldn't they have gone down with the ship on that one?


Wasn't that reveal the stinger to that episode?

Between "I'm Doctor Who", "we're like hermit crabs", and "it will be like season one but more streamlined" I wouldn't be surprised to see a full reboot next season. If they had balls they would change the animation style or even recast.
Either way the surprise Christmas episode will be fun.

Pilots are usually written years before the series is actually greenlit.  They often have nothing to do with the quality of the series overall.  Episode 2 can often be a rush job.  I usually find episode 3 to be indicative of the quality of a series.

For a beautiful, brief week some saint was ssneaking the full episodes onto YouTube.

Some asshole stopped that.

I liked the ending, Rick needed to get some actual consequences for a change.  Rick doesn't need to change or grow for the show to continue but he needed boundaries.  A Rick led family was terrible, the amount of things Beth let him get away with because she was afraid he might leave is staggering.

As someone earlier pointed out, Jerry really is the only problem Rick can't solve just by killing him.

hammer85: The Bestest: skyotter: 1) I  (Rickshank Redemption)
2) notice a small problem, (Rickmancing the Stone)
3) and make a major decision.  (Pickle Rick)
4) this changes things (Vindicators 3)
5) to some satisfaction, but (Whirly Dirly Conspiracy)
6) there are consequences (Rest and Ricklaxation)
7) that must be undone (ABCs of Beth)
8) and I must admit the futility of change.  (Rickchurian Mortydate)

Dan Harmon's story circle for TV episodes.  Take out the two filler/clip-show episodes, and the whole season fits.  ;)

I wouldn't consider The Ricklantis Mixup a clip/filler in the slightest.
A side-story, perhaps, since it didn't directly involve the protagonists, but a critical followup and portent to the grand continuity nonetheless.

Hell, I'd argue Ricklantis Mixup way more deserving of "there are consequences" than Rest and Ricklaxation, in which there really weren't any and was probably the most filler of all the episodes this season (I don't consider interdimensional cable/morty mind blowers to be filler)


Yeah, I was trying too hard to match individual episodes with the points on the wheel.

Taken as a whole: the season starts with Rick having a small problem (he doesn't like Jerry) and making a HUGE change (causing the break-up) but that has consequences (Summer, Morty, and even Beth acting out), leading Rick to undo everything (revisiting Beth's childhood, and possibly cloning her) ... and admit the futility of change ("just like Season One, but more streamlined").

Especially pilots where damn near every single character is disposable.

The only two characters who carried over into the main show were the First Officer turned mutineer and the alien Science Officer.

Everything else was setting up the conditions for the third episode on a new ship, and that episode was pretty interesting.

No Phoenix Person, no Evil Morty - run Citadel of Ricks, and Beth is forever Schrodinger's clone, but we at least had the divorce resolved and Mr. Poopybutthole.

dr_blasto: fusillade762: And how long will we have to wait for season 4? Which is supposed to be 14 episodes this time.

Man, I really hope it's not long, maybe next spring or something. How long was the gap between 1 and 2? I can't even remember.


The airdates Wikipedia lists say the last episode of Season 1 aired on April 14, 2014 and the first episode of Season 2 aired on July 26, 2015.  That being said, we got episode 1 of Season 3 on April Fools' Day 2017, but the season proper got started on July 30th.
