I've no doubt that they'll lampshade the voice change in the first episode.  It will be interesting to see how noticeable the change in the overall show is once he's no longer involved, though.

Squanch Games (High on Life) just cut him as well.

I'm wondering if Solar Opposites is done. I enjoyed that a lot more than R&M.

"... Roland could face up to seven years in prison if convicted."

It sounds like he has already been found guilty and convicted by the press.

It's always a little crazy to me when some one that works with Dan Harmon is a bigger asshole than Dan Harmon.

But damn if Chevy Chase and Justin Roiland didn't find a way.

The show may or may not end up sucking from here on out but one thing is for certain, there will be a shiatshow of fanbois at the courthouse the next time Roiland's case goes before a judge.

It's not "will" and "when"
It's "could" and "if"

I won't pretend folks haven't already decided - but that quote was just laying out the consequence of a potential conviction.

Just throw chicken nugget sauce on the sidewalk and they'll be too busy licking it up to protest.

As long as they get someone that gets the general vibe of each character, it shouldn't be terrible.

But I don't see how they're going to do that.

Solar Opposites and Rick and Morty are two shows I'm gonna keep watching, but not tell anyone that I watch them.

Why did we have to be in the timeline where the main show runner and voice actor was a pile of shiate?

If everyone is dropping him like hot garbage before conviction there is probably more to the story that is even worse.

I don't know if you understand how hard it is for a person in an abusive relationship to get a document like that, charges like that, filed.

I can assure you.

Regardless of your opinion about Roiland, the reality is:

The show is dead without him. It will be a shambolic mess for a season or so, and will provide much fodder for discussions about how much it sucks before AS quietly pulls the plug.

It's over.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through the game now, so this is going to cast a bit of a pall over the remainder of it. Especially when I'm using the Morty gun.

I was a big fan of Community before ever watching this, so always assumed Harmon was more of the main guy in charge of things. Oh well; oh geez.

Omgosh, are you trolling?
I hope this was parody.
If it's not, you sound like those basement nerds screaming "Star Wars is dead!"
Jeebus. How do people like that function in life?
Stop being so dramatic.

Damn, I had eight comments on my strikeout submission.

Always felt The Venture Bros. was superior to R&M.

Alternate headline I had but too chicken to put, was
"Christopher Lloyd Rick: 'Great Scott Morty, we're voices in a cartoon! How did we end up like this?' Michael J. Fox Morty: (looks at the news about Justin Roiland on cellphone) 'Oh-h-h-h-h-h-o-h-h-h jjjjjeeez."
 
2023-01-25 12:08:41 AM  
Yes! Send Morty back to school. Put Rick in a retirement home. It's time for ... The Adventures of Jerry!
 
2023-01-25 12:10:05 AM  
Roiland has been charged with one felony count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit by the Orange County District Attorney's office.

I'll wait for more details before commenting on the case, but R&M the show is over. Roiland did all the voices. How will they handle the voice and timing changes?

"Oh geez, Rick, eating that fruit that changed our voices was a great idea"

I tried to be a Community fan. First season was fun, but uneven. Second season was like the 3rd season of AP Bio. Unwatchable.
 
2023-01-25 12:14:06 AM  
How do they expect to find someone else can burp so fluently while speaking?

This would probably bother me if I still cared about the show. It had a good run but I lost interest. Adult Swim's "we're ordering 70 episodes" sounded crazy at the time because it was

They could chatGPT it. And they can always get someone/something else to do the voice.

Fantastic observation and great point.

Mike Tyson is terrifying in person.

"Oh look, it's the most violent and dangerous person in the world. I'll go his hotel room to talk". Smh

Adult Swim is probably too terrified to cancel his show. Roiland doesn't invoke that type of fear in people.

The only thing that makes me even want to give it any chance at all is Dan Harmon. That m-fer's made some of the smartest TV I've seen, and if anyone can figure out a clever enough way to power through for the show it's him.

I don't know that anyone can, but I'll see if he can.

Uuuuuuuuugh.

I've really enjoyed it wholeheartedly so far and I'm not so busy I won't tune in to check out what comes next.

John Kricfalusi's probably available, I'm guessing he and Dan Harmon would get along.
