Rick and Morty - Look At Me!!

I forgot how much I missed this show.

It was a great season premiere. Typical Rick & Morty episode, but the execution was solid and that's just what I wanted after a long break between seasons. The Narnia world was a real highlight.

Spoiler:

I'm hoping that we can put Morty's Jessica fixation to bed now, but that probably won't happen.

I lose track of which season I’m on but I’m always up for more. Channel 4 seem to have the new season or whatever part of the new season is available.

Ironically, I finished season 4 on Saturday, not knowing that season 5 was a few days later. I watched s5e1 on the Adult Swim app, but I’m guessing my DVR is catching it for me as well. The Adult Swim app isn’t great.

Yep. Channel 4 in the UK is getting season 5. Watching the first episode. Part of me wants to eek out the new episodes as long as possible to make them last. The other part wants to watch them all as fast as humanly possible.

Tonight’s decoy episode was excellent. Definitely in my top 5 episodes of the series.

In terms of esclating ridiculousness it reminded me of the parasite episode. Definitely enjoyed it.

Spoiler:

That shot at the end with Space Beth and everyone packed into the car was hilarious

Watched the second episode. I really enjoy it when they just keep extrapolating like that.

It was great.

I was sort of disappointed that they didn’t get to kill god. I guess in a figurative way they killed god a long time ago. Wait. Rick killed Zeus, right?

If you watch closely you will catch a captain planet reference. Blink and you will miss it

Well. Rickdependence Spray was nuts.

That episode was jacked!

After three extremely good episodes to start the season, I found this one kind of meh.

I guess I got used to each episode feeling like it explored a new facet of the character it was focusing on and this felt more like a mediocre throwback. Like a season 1 b-side.

The humor mostly fell flat for me in this one too. And the ending? Woof.

I thought it was the weakest of the season so far, but there have been worse episodes overall. I watched it on Hulu and afterwards there was a short making of featurette with some of the creators and it really felt like everyone was apologizing for the episode.

Little to heavy on the sex jokes which I know was the point but it didn't work. Many of jokes I seen coming which reminded me of that time I walked in on my parents.

This season started off well -- albeit not spectacular -- with the first two episodes, but the last five episodes have been garbage. Lazy parodies with even lazier humour. It feels like a new writing staff is working on the show or something. I'm going to finish the season off, but catching the newest episode is beginning to feel like a chore. I really hope the quality picks up soon.

Kind of odd to do another super parody episode when they just did the captain planet one. I did like bits and pieces of it but it was mostly bad. Liked them bringing back incest baby. Liked the narrator aliens. Liked the idea of a voltron parody.

Everything else was meh. I only caught one parody rick. The others I don't know where or if they are from anything. Also how many times are they going to do multiverse rick and friends. I mean it is a cool but once a season is enough.

This was basically the we ran out of ideas episode so lets repeat ourselves from things we did this season. They could have at least stole ideas from season 1. hmmm wait now that I think about those things were also in season 1. Oh well,.

I actually really enjoyed the double layered parody. Goodfellas over top of Voltron over top of Rick and Morty. This is is best to me when they are being silly.

I thought this was a solid B episode. Maybe a B- since it was basically recycling a Community episode. It was definitely one of Jerry’s best episodes and he had some of the best jokes throughout. I watched the episode several weeks ago when it was accidentally leaked and liked it a lot more on the second viewing this weekend.

I really liked the turkey episode last week, though the vaccine joke was maybe in a bit of bad taste considering half the country has lost their sh*t over the topic. I guess it’s a window to a simpler time.

The only weak episode for me so far this season has been the sperm one, and that was really only because it felt like they grabbed a handful of random discarded subplots and tried force them into a single narrative. There was too much going on and nothing really fit together.

I feel like that whole episode was a metajoke 'taking the piss' so the speak about all the things the more toxic side of the fan base has been screaming for/about

They have been seeding bits and pieces of unanswered lore and overarching story threads in the show since the first season and this season I think they went through and addressed pretty much every single one and ended with greatly expanding upon the multiverse concept. It sort of feels like they might be doing a soft reboot for the next season. Apparently the next two seasons are already written so there shouldn’t be a massive wait to see where things go from here.

Oh. That’s good news.

Finally caught season 5 on HBOmax and enjoyed it overall. Something with the new team didn't feel as snappy with some episodes but overall good. That said I am looking forward to more!

Season 6 starts September 4th.
