The fanbase and the memes will ruin this show
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 viewer's 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.
Just ignore the memes. I'm wondering how many people consider R&M to allready be ruined "cuz of feminism"
The same amount of people that inspired those memes.
Season 3 isn't as good but it is FAR from ruined
Season 3 has the best episodes of the series already.
Lol no. There's some goodies but overall the first season is my favorite.
The first season is the weakest. It doesn't reach it's full potential until episode 5 which is halfway through. Season 3 meanwhile starts with a great episode and after that only 1 episode has felt weak (the Avengers Parody), with them having the best episode of the series the "The Ricklantis Mixup".
The first episode of season 3 really highlights how inconsistent the characters are. Season two finale basically confirms his love for his family. Season three finale goes back to his original universe has him tell morty he cares more about sezchuan suace than him and reveals he manipulated beth. Bah.
And you take Rick's declaration of not feeling love as serious? Isn't his character all about projecting an image of being infallible and dettached while failing at it? He even made a point of saving Summer during his assault on the Citadel.
Rick is a fallible human, this is even specifically established in the "toxins" episode, he re-merges with his toxins, that include "irrational attachments" to family. That's the way he words it, he sees it, but it simply means he is more human than he likes to admit.
Obviously it is considering the events of rick potion #9
In Rick Potion he states he can only do reality switches 2 more times and he still made the effort of taking Morty with him when he could've just find himself another Morty (considering what the Citadel shows us other Ricks do often).
Still he only took morty because he was there and morty was dead in the other universe. He left everyone else.
He could've left Morty there and just find a universe where only he was dead.
That would be more effort for no gain.
And Rick is very bad at pretending to be dettached and fully rational.
No he's just inconsistently written. They wanna have their cake and eat it too.
He is consistently written as an imperfect human. I see a lot of people wanting to build Rick up to be this machine-man, but a lot of what he *says* is insincere. Rick does not always say things that are true, he is imperfect, and again, the "toxins" show this clearly, he has irrational sides to him, such as personal attachments to people he loves.
A natural personal inconcistency is to be expected in anybody. Nobody is 100% this or 100% that, you see the same in the supporting characters as well, Jerry is a total Jerry, but every now and then he grows a little pair. Morty is a total Morty, but every now and then he takes a bit of charge, he even takes charge in the prologue of ep 1, and Rick lets him
Zeno-something blamed feminism for the scene where the therapist actually makes some real points to Rick, to which Rick has no immediate comeback. This is another example of the contrasts: Rick has transformed into a pickle AND he has brought down a terrorist organization, and at the same time, he does not have a ready and witty comeback to a therapist who uses perfectly sane logic to point out his inconcistencies
Just because you interpret Rick as being this 100% machine of rationality and logic, part of the shows recurring points is that he is not. He is not 100%, he IS inconcistent - he is human! He is very, very hardcore in who he is, sure, but not 100%, because nobody is.
I think Ricklantis was the best episode of the season. Vindicators, Mad Max episode and Pickle Rick (less so) were some of the weakest episodes imo. So far I'm liking the latter half of the season much better. Just stay off reddit if you don't like the people that think they're Rick.
Rick is who people want to be. Someone who doesn't care. But then even ruck is inconsistent on that so people who wanna be Rick are kinda dumb
People are also very selective about what they want to hear and see, Rick is awesome, but I don't want to be him. He's completely fucked up, he drinks pretty much non-stop, Bird-person suggested before that he is in a lot of pain, and the ever expanding story threads are beginning to suggest he has a LOT to answer for - even unto himself
Then again, people love identifying their pathetic selves with "dark, hardcore characters" like that, "oh yeah totally, I skip my homework, I called my mom a bitch (she got SO mad at me), Im a total chaotic neutral badass mofo!"
You'd think chaotic neutral would be the most common type of person.
It's the most badass in terms of satisfying fictional narratives, makes for good protagonists. Protagonists cater to daydreamers, you want a protagonist who leads a life wildly different from yours. MOST people are preoccupied with earthly matters, their relatives, their stupid kids, their societies, their safety, health, sympathies etc.
Lawful evil is my favorite type to explore.
@R.Graves Lawful Evil is awesome when done well, but terrible when done poorly. When done well, you get to see how someone fucks over people using traditions and customs as there allies, when done poorly it just comes across as Lawful Stupid but cruel.
