There's a lot of terrible neckbeardery going around about the show in general and yeah, loads of people not getting the point at all.

I am almost through season one. It has hits and misses. The episode that is just them improvising tv ads for the entire time is odd.

My favourite line so far is:

"I'm Mister Crowbar, and this is my friend... who is also a crowbar."

Also that was my favourite episode so far.

I didn't find that whole segment in any way funny.

It was scarily reminiscent of some of the writing that a friend of mine used to do back in my writing days. I knew he should have stuck with it and not become a teacher!

I thought "Morty's Mindblowers" was better than the interdimensional cable ones.

It's slick, clever and funny, and uses scifi elements to good effect. It's right up my alley, humour-wise. It doesn't mean I think Rick is some kind of awesome guy though. He is a deeply flawed character, but usually comes good eventually.

It's a bit like when people used to cheer on Alf Garnett's racism. Except now, thanks to the wondrous improvements to all of society brought to us by the internet, they can make themselves heard.

Teddy Bear Rick "nope"ing out was great, and the sci-fi weapons were fucking awesome

I don’t care for the new intro: it doesn’t go with the music as well.

Episode 2 was pretty good. Jerry is as great as ever. The last two episodes have had a manic pace about them, which I like, but it no longer feels as fresh as the first couple of seasons. The audience will eventually tire of just random meaningless adventures; it needs to get back to a common story now. Maybe next week, aye...that’d be good.
