    The ending brought it all together for me but it was weaker in the grand scheme.

    Pickle Rick shaming them over recycling got me good.

    My favorite little joke about tonight's episode is that World Ender's corpse was dressed up and laid out at the party so you could take pictures with it.

    Rick's immediate and ephemeral source of validation. Who end's up cleaning up his diarrhea.

    So, an avatar for everyone in Rick's life? I guess?

    the "it's a small world" ride he built was fucking amazing. And that moment when Morty realizes Rick is talking about noob noob was so perfect

    Does anyone else not like the fact that Jerry, minus this episode, isn't in the season much? I like his incompetence and low self-esteem, like when they had a daycare strictly for Jerrys. Beth is an awful character since they basically made her just a bitch this season.

    I think discussion is so limited for an unusual reason.

    I’d say 3/4 or more of TV threads are complaints and arguments.

    This show doesn’t really leave room for complaints imo

    probably a good point. I watch every week but I really don't have much to say that wouldn't just echo what everyone else is saying about how great it is.

    Yup. Repeated viewings are pushing this episode into top tier categories.

    I like when the show mocks tropes or spoofs trends, but I LOVE when it dives into meta self-examination. You can tell the creators are thinking, and they want me to think as well, deeply, about topics they want to put a spotlight on.

    From "Big trouble in little Sanchez", to "Pickle Rick", to now, I'm starting to think[ing] Harmon has a real problem with therapy as an institution. I adore how this show makes absurd scenarios for the sake of eliciting contemplative thought.

    Not saying it's gonna supplant "The Rick's must be crazy" or "Meseeks and Destroy" but I hate the idea of ranking rick and morty episodes. I just know this one checked off a lot of boxes when it comes to the upper echelon of stuff this show produces.

    This show is just flat out too much for me. I love it, but it definitely makes me feel stupid.

    How exactly do you cram that much shit I need to know in such a short time span?

    The stakes are both meta and universe driven, and that line is constantly blurred.

    Yeah, a rewatch is definitely in order. What really blows me away about this show is how it still isn't really all that popular. Like it's popular on Reddit and shit, but it's nowhere near as popular as shit like Doctor Who or Walking Dead. Meanwhile, Im sitting here like [​IMG]

    I love the whole season's focus on examination of motivations. A show that has and does whatever it wants, with a character who can essentially do what he wants...the driving question seems (to me) to be the why. And in that sense a playground for the creators to explain or exhibit why.

    The show doesn't give you AN answer for the character, it gives you near infinite answers for the why. I like and enjoy it, but the most definitive why answers seem to be the show creators fucking with convention, and how that fucking with convention made things hard initially, and how doing so was able to break stagnated concepts of what could be popular and resonant.

    To me, this show feels like an unapologetic fuck you to the norms and boundaries of "what will people enjoy", and the creators had a driving motivation to push beyond any arbitrary envelope and show that people will recognize and appreciate having their minds blown and the hypersonic deconstruction of their normalized tropes.

    I'm not gonna badmouth any other creative property, but I'm on you're side. To me, it's a risky endeavor meant to mock and subvert that popular model, but it's also beholden to that current paradigm in terms of getting attention.

    I appreciate the level of "cult" following and the amount of critical thought going on about the show though. I think that bodes well for lasting relevance and it has the depth to sustain a vigorous deconstruction and analysis.

    As a preemptive shield, I don't think I'm saying anything novel or groundbreaking about the show. I imagine most in this thread already appreciate all those aspects and consider them part and parcel of expressions of joy or appreciation for individual episodes.

    I'm not the first person to lack a specific moment or shorthand summation of an episode, and that makes it a lot easier to just say "holy shit that was awesome".

    I just like diving deep into material I enjoy.

    First thing I love, the fact that they fuck with the episode title (and description I saw with U-verse), Ricklantis, yeah, we had that episode, but let it all happen offscreen in favor of another examination of the insanity that makes our characters do what they do. Rather than say, showing them having a pleasant, inconsequential time, because the side of your brain you like to distract yourself from with popular culture is more interesting to explore.

    I feel like the central subversion of the show is to use a vehicle the creators feel very cynical about to make people think about topics and themes that pop culture actively avoids because of it's discomfort.

    Obviously this is an episode about the nature of racism in our society, but it's also about the brutality of capitalism, and how they go hand-in-hand.

    The whole scene at the Morty Mart was amazing.

    Any augmentations?

    No, just 4 normal mortys.

    Normal?

    Ah, put it in your blog.

    And then when police Morty "interrogates" the 2 guys and walks back with an "Ah Geez Rick what do I know about knowin stuff. Get in the fucking car"

    Wouldn't be surprised if people pulled out that narrative. It feels subsidiary to the driving conceit, but I consider that a compliment that the show can make poignant/satiric statements about a subject merely with the wake of it's motivating course.
