It's Rick. It's all about that sweet sweet McDonald's Mulan Szechuan McNugget sauce.

I was talking with a friend who felt that the way The Rickshank Redemption handled
SPOILER: Show
the divorce of Beth and Jerry
was done poorly, even if he felt it was time for it to come eventually. I could see where he came from, but considering how much the show subverts expectations, I'd wait to see how it plays it out.

I have no reason not to trust the writers. Beth & Jerry's tumultuous marriage has been the main ongoing B story of Rick & Morty since it started. I'm sure the divorce will be given it's full focus once Season 3 actually starts this summer.

I can't judge anything based on that standard. Judging even Rick and Morty on how often they subvert expectations in the particular instance can quickly becomes it's own paradox. Subverting expectations always lead to the status quo of the relationship intact, thereby making the show potentially stagnate as the writers proudly proclaimed that the "Status Quo is God!" On the other hand, by giving into the expectations that it usually subverts, the status quo of the relationship is abandoned and the show can potentially become more interesting as it treads new ground. But if the show does that (which it now has) , then it didn't subverted expectations. And if the main draw to the show was the subversion of expectations, then it's instantly compromised, ironically by how far it has left from the Status Quo. But isn't the Status Quo to be expected? How can the show subvert expectations if that has done nothing more than build expectations towards its own Status Quo? And then the paradoxical nature of the show would have ultimately been its one undoing and everything would such starting Season 4.

As a result, I find the rendering of the whole criticism of the show to the mere execution of subversions maintaining that status quo as an inherently moot action to begin with. Instead, I focus on the fact that it's a brilliantly executed dark comedy series that has just about the right combination of genuine darkness and genuine humor, especially given it's more-than-solid character writing. Giving into expectations and ironically changing the Status Quo by doing so still keeps that intact without sacrificing the nature of the show.

It doesn't convince me either. 2 seasons for them to hold together, and suddenly all ends in a couple of minutes? Come on.

I've been watching that show on adult swim. Pretty damn funny show. I think Rick and Morty might be a parody of Doc Brown and Marty. Morty, Marty, And I think Rick kinda has that Doc Brown hairdo. I have yet to keep up on the latest season.

^ They are.

After Justin Roiland got a cease & desist letter from Bill Cosby's lawyers regarding his cartoon web series HOUSE OF COSBYS (it's hilarious & all on Youtube) he wanted to see if he could get a similar cease & desist letter from a film studio so he made this Back to the Future cartoon - (p.s. totally NSFW)

https://vimeo.com/97680161

During editing though he liked the characters so much that he changed their names so it classifies as a parody & he could back down from getting a cease & desist letter. And slowly Doc & Mharti evolved into Rick & Morty.

Jerry gave Beth an ultimatum and she chose Rick, that only takes a few minutes to settle however you wanna look at it. Whether Beth made a reasonable choice is up for debate. She was as ready as Jerry to kick him out in Ep.1 but now everyone just accepts shes damaged and has unconditional love for her abandoning father no matter what. IDK, maybe that's fair. And the show treats Jerry like a pussy for not doing even more than that, but as far as I can see he's done as much as he reasonably can.

I love season three so far.
SPOILER: Show
The opener was just amazing, and the fact they made Pickle-Rick work is proof of how great the writers are. I really like that we seemingly get into the meat of Beth's internal problems... also the therapist owned all of them.

I need to say something. I've just watched the finale of S3.
I love this show so much. The sheer density of stuff going on at all times never ceases to amaze me. It’s simultaneously being hilarious while still offering amazing character drama. This is the best dramedy out there, period. I just hope they end this show, before it grows stale.

The season finale felt lackluster compared to the rest of the season. Damn shame since they were doing so well.

But that's the point. It's the complete antithesis to the finale of S2!

I think the Ricklantis episode should have been the season finale.

It was nice seeing Mr Poopybutthole again though.

Season Finale was a great choice. In the end, despite all of Rick's great power, his egoism, his ability to destroy worlds & his pure scientific genius he is incapable of usurping Jerry - the most mediocre of people in the galaxy - at winning the heart of his family. He could take down the US Government & beat up Keith Freaking David, but he can't get rid of Jerry. Because Jerry, as pathetic as he is, is still predictably reliable to be Jerry and that makes the family happy.

The Ricklantis Mixup works fine as the episode it is but the show has never been about giant evil villain world plotting endgames, the show has always been about a hate filled asshole who inflicts pain on his family but despite his grand statements to the contrary he always needs them because he irrationally loves them & irrationally needs their love.

I almost kind of hope as a big middle finger to fan expectations the show NEVER returns to Evil Morty or if they do have Our Rick & Morty take care of him during a 30 second side gag & comment on how anti-climatic he was & just a lot of pointless build up & fan wankery over nothing. It would very much be in the spirit of the show.

Meanwhile there was a guy who bought all the sauce at one location and was charging people $10 for a single nugget dipped in the sauce in some unholy perversion of the rite of the holy communion.
