welp the season 4 premier of rick and morty happened

Post by Fontra (?) » Mon Nov 11, 2019 4:31 am

It was okay :pinkieshrug:

I think they leaned way too hard into the gross wasp humor near the end but the death crystals were kind of fun as a sci fi concept

Also a fan of the anti-nazi stuff.

I thought it was pretty good. Definitely toned down from S3, which I thought was way overdone.

It was definitely a step up, but I'm comparing it to the S2 premiere which, to me, was one of the best episodes they've ever done. So this was good, but it was just good. Not "wow this is the best creative use of the tv animation medium I've seen in a while"

I did think the aftercredits stinger was a great payoff to the episode.

I thought the season 3 premiere and finale were the best of last season, and this one didn't live up to that bar, but it was better than the season 3 lows. The Nazi stuff was a little on the nose, but it was also funny, so a wash there. The sci-fi concept was the highlight of the episode, good work there.

The one awkward aspect that stuck out to me was how seasons 1 and 2 had this frenetic energy to them, which season 3 mostly lacked -- a combination of fast-paced scenes and dialogue, mixing humor and sci-fi and the serious undertones. This episode felt more like season 3. Worrisome in a five episode season.

Also, condolences on Mike Mendel passing away suddenly a month and a half ago.

It was decent. The post credits bit was brilliant too. I kind of thought there was the possibility for something like that but they did it and it was great.

It's doing the bojack horseman thing where it splits seasons between 2019 and 2020 so it's not actually a 5-episode season

I have to wonder why this half n half-season concept seems to becoming standard among animation but we at least know Bojack is ending

At least Bojack got more episodes than usual out of the deal so they could wrap up. And MLP used the summer breaks to catch up on the faster production schedule in the later seasons.

But, like, having to take a break in the middle of a ten episode season when you've been off the air for two years is kinda rough.

Season 4 ep 2 was some mediocre S3-tier material. The Rick toilet plot was lame and just served the purpose of showing us that, once again, Rick is depressed as if they didn't establish that a million times already. The Morty/Jerry subplot went nowhere and was boring. The Summer/Beth subplot was arguably worse.

The scifi concepts this time were "magic dating app that makes everyone find soulmates really fast", lotus eater machine fluid, and a toilet in the middle of nowhere that I guess is a metaphor for Rick isolating himself or some crap like that.

I miss the death crystals.

I'm beginning to understand the problems the writers are having: they don't know how to develop character beyond "character is depressed" and just leave it like that.

Either have Rick start seeking a real solution to his problems so these character plot threads go somewhere or just go back to wacky scifi shit.

I can tell which episodes were heavily-influenced by Dan Harmon because they always end with the "Rick sad" moments that don't go anywhere in episodes that come after.

That episode kind of owned. Funny and like 3 stories at once all of which were both funny and kind of melancholy at the same time.

The real heist was assembling a team of writers and animators to steal our time and make us like the show.

Wow, episode 3 was actually funny.

I wonder if Roiland and Harmon got to ride in Elon's N64 car after he guest starred on the show.

Yeah he played a guy named "Elon Tusk" who was an alternate version of Elon Musk but with tusks. Didn't really do that much so I'm not complaining really.

And hey wow Roiland/Harmon can in fact deconstruct a genre of media and be funny while doing it. I don't think an R&M episode made me laugh as much as this one in a long time. my favorite parts were the "heist convention" where you have to cut open glass to get inside and heistotron trying to pretend to be a water checker and pizza delivery guy in disguise on a planetary scale.

It was entirely in-character for Rick to cause a planet/galaxy/universe-wide disaster (intended or not) in order to keep Morty from doing a Netflix pitch

Late by a few days, but saw ep 4. I liked that it referenced "A Talking Cat" and the part at the end where Rick finally does something unironically selfless for Jerry.

Everything else was just weird. That was a really weird episode.
