Rick and Morty Season 5 Premier

Post by Casual Observer »

Been waiting for a goddamn eternity for them to release this season but so far it's worth it. Loved this episode for so many reasons though some things kinda creeped me out which is par for the course with these guys. Definitely the most sexual episode so far, the Mr. Nimbus character was gross. I loved the whole dog world adventure and giving Jessica something to actually do was a fun addition. Flack, are you a R&M fan? Would love to get your awesome reviewing talent involved here, I just don't have the gift.

I have reached the point where when it's on Adult Swim I watch it. It's one of those shows I usually don't like because it equates everybody screaming at each other really fast with being funny.

I will admit what elevates it is that it is terribly clever. Adult Swim has a tendency of replaying episodes too frequently, and the Total Rickall one that keeps popping up is my favorite. That's a very clever episode of a very clever show.

I just never laugh.

Well, I laughed once.

And I don't understand why Pickle Rick is everyone's favorite. Again, very clever. Just not very funny. But I guess it's working out for them.

It has absolutely become a show about people screaming at each other, you're correct about that.

No, while there's certainly a lot of that, it's the witty and weird scifi take on pop culture that I still find hilarious. I can't re-watch all of them or at least I don't search them out but there are gems I can't stop watching, like Meeseks, the Ricks Must be Crazy, look who's purging now, edge of morty, lawnmower dog, rick potion #9, raising gazorpazorp, Something Ricked was a classic I think. I can't watch things like the inter dimensional cable or vindicators episodes, wasn't a fan of the ABC's of Beth.

Pickle rick was funny, pinback. It wasn't the pickle action that was funny as the jokes once he got to the building, best ones though were at the end with Jaguar and Susan Sarandon.

Episode 3 was a kick in the balls.

I can't believe I'm paying almost $400 a month for cable/internet/prime/streaming/includinghbomax and I still have to torrent to watch the episode when it's convenient to me.

I think this cold open from the future is good and there's not a lot of yelling.

It's very clever and there's a lot of talking. Answer me this, did you laugh out loud at any point, or just thing "ahh, that's good!" Maybe I'm the odd one out here.

I kept track!! Because of what you said!

I did not "laugh out loud" but I was grinning and I exhaled out my nose at the end.

Yeah, me neither. You smiled and thought "ah, very clever." Just like I did. That's this show.

The idiot children on Reddit hate this week's episode! I thought it was one of the best of R&M I had ever seen. I lost count of the TRUE out-loud laughing I did, because the number was high and I was enjoying it.

Jolt Country denizens, do YOU hate S05E04 of Rick and Morty???
