So did you all stop shitting on the show because the last episode was amazing?

Apologize for over-hyping something for 2 years and then turn around and hate it because it had a dip in quality.

Ep 6 was good, last episode was a "deep" meme

The problem is, it's rarely actually funny. The joke is that the guy is an omniscient dimension-travelling scientist sociopath, but it rarely does anything comedic with its setting. There are a few funny jokes and moments in there scattered around, but it's mostly just bland shit with a verbal joke and punchlines delivered with a machinegun.

I've been watching the first season of Arrested Development today, and it's sad to see that a live-action show does much, much more with the form itself to achieve jokes (lines starting and ending in different scenes with different context, the Buster zoom-outs, so many fucking jokes).

Comedy nowadays is just lazy, and hence, not very funny.
>>
Season opener would have been fine if not for that ending with the stupid fucking sauce

>>87680258
I just watched this and I spent the entire episode repeating the words "This is reddit, this is memes, this is reddit, this is memes..." under my breath.

I fucking hated it. I was writhing around on the floor in front of my sofa for the last 3 minutes it was so painful.

What I don't understand about the fan base is how they latch on to the unfunny shit and not the funny stuff. I like the show bet get shwifty isn't funny, little Rick is the worst episode of the show, and Pickle Rick was the worst episode this season.

Yeah, get shwifty and little Rick are really really bad. Pickle Rick is gimmicky but the whole sewer escape was ridiculously hilarious. The rest of the pickle Rick episode did kind of suck (the therapy side plot, the dragged out embassy violence (though using another pickle to heal his wound was pretty good))

Things I remember that were funny:
Simple Rick commercials
Morty town
The creepy Morty

The general concept of everyday life at the citadel was pretty novel and entertaining. Though the episode kind of took itself a bit too seriously at some points toward the end.
I like that there was no Beth/Summer bs. That shit just isn't funny, period

pretty much this. few people seem to realize how much of comedy is visual (that does not mean slapstick) and how you need contrast and "negative space" to make the jokes work. endless rapid speech with as many references per minute as possible just feels bland and get boring fast.

fucking this thread again, what is it with normies who just dont get the subtleties of R&M?

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor 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 fromNarodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick and Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existencial 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 unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a Rick and Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

The "family drama" is what sets this show apart from random wackiness that shows like Family Guy are all about. It grounds the characters and gives them some depth. You basically dislike character development.

I just watched the latest Bojack season and it makes this show look like it was written by some HS teens that think they know shit about science. For a show that has characters that can travel to any dimension, this show is very unimaginative. I mean, one of the episodes is set inside a therapists office. What a fucking waste. It would be like going to a candy shop and picking a rotten apple that someone dropped 2 years ago.
>>
>>87680258
It was alright compared to the rest of the season but it wasn't really funny. It was also basically contemporary plot with zero sci fi besides the window dressing. Blitz and chips was funny and satirical without feeling so on the nose because it maintained the absurdity of the fantasy sci-fi setting.

I compare the show to Futurama. I understand that Rick & Morty wont make you upset like Fry's dog or his relationship with Leela will make you, but in comparison with the show, its great for filling the void I've felt after its cancellation. Futurama had a combination of simpsons humor, combined with a bit of science(fiction).
Most things I've noticed about the series is that it portrays capitalism and society in an ironic and depressing (but amusing) way. In more than one episode societies like ours have been either ridiculed or destroyed.
This show is pretty good in my opinion. Good show and I'd recommend it to Futurama fans.

pre-cancellation Futurama is great but everything post-revival is increasingly flanderized and preoccupied with relationship drama. The difference with Rick and Morty is that Futurama had 4 solid seasons of quality episodes, and Rick and Morty began to show signs of decline midway through the second season.

Since the entire original writing team was liquidated and a long hiatus ensued, I would consider this season the first analogous season to late futurama.

I might be exaggerating but take the simpsons, koth, american dad, the characters dont talk fast as shit, they wait for each other, either for comedic timing or just to sound natural. In the citadel they were just talking too fucking fast.

That was my biggest peeve with this episode. While all non-protagonist Ricks were more prone to forming a society for mutual benefit I understood they were still supposed to be Ricks, as in ruthless scientists smart enough to build a portal gun that's supposed to be this most advanced technology in all multi-verses, with likes of shit-eating retarded Rick supposedly being exceptions.

This episode's Ricks are all just compliant normal people but with superficial silly traits of Rick for the purpose of delivering the joke. And for some reason they all live in the Citadel instead of their own worlds.

>Also what was the point of the good cop bad cop story?

It's a longstanding stereotype that the black cop has to go even further to prove he's just one of the guys to fit in. Have you never watched Training Day? Morty was far worse and more callous than the sensitive, rookie Rick was when dealing with other Mortys.

>In Roiland’s Reddit rant, he claimed that as a showrunner, he was blindsided by the Animation Guild, which was representing the artists on his show


>The studio called a meeting with artists to give them the classic “unions are scary” talk. They told artists, among other things, that the Animation Guild offered a poor health plan. Of course, their own company offered no health plan, which was one of the reasons that artists wanted to organize.

There was a ton of female written episodes on Community which is another Dan Harmon people most people on /tv/ love. Also it's not like the writer of the episode made everything up and have total creative control, the entire team break every story together and generally decide on everything that's going to happen, the writer really only puts it on paper.

Dan Harmon is a well known control freak who did a final rewrite on every Community episode to give it his voice so it's safe to assume he probably does the same for Rick and Morty. I think it's more likely that the new additions to the team aren't given the really heavy hitters of the season.

Bojack is one of the closest shows to Arrested Development in terms of the amount of jokes that each episode packs. Reddit and Morty does not come even close. It is just the same recurring joke over and over. Bojack and Rick are pretty much both drunk people who hate themselves, but Bojack is way more complex than Rick. The only thing the Rick character has is a scify le mysterious backstory.

What makes something funny is about as easy to pinpoint as what makes something sexy. Sometimes it's easy to describe, sometimes its impossible. There will always be someone who likes what you don't, being an elitist just makes you less able to form meaningful relationships with people.

Instead of defining your taste by what you hate try defining your taste by what you love. You'll be seen as genuinely open to experiences and smart rather than a contrarian neckbeard.
