    The Rick and Morty is back! The season premiere, "Edge of ToMorty: Rick Die Rickpeat", left me with so many theory ideas and I couldn't wait! This episode showed us a side of Rick and Morty we haven't seen before and I LOVED it! In fact, I think that there was a life lesson hidden somewhere in all the jokes and violence. What was that lesson? What did Rick mean at the end of the episode? I'm here to explain it all to you!

So glad to see so many of you liked this more "laid back" style. It helped us get the episode out same week, rather than weeks later after all this was relevant! That said, seeing a lot of comments about the green screen, lighting, and background, so quick note: I had to film while traveling, meaning stuff was a bit rougher than it normally would be. Shouldn't be a problem in the future!

Laidback? You are screaming at us, dude. How do you have this much energy? What are you SELLING me?!? Are you making a YouTube video or a 3 AM infomercial for Bible Amway Quick-Mop Exercise? You're like the one drama-club cousin at family Christmas who's just way too much for everyone. Like, calm down. I would have watched if it weren't for all the yelling, even though it's just a video about an episode of Rick and Morty that was, by the way, super straight-forward as R&M episodes go. The audience for your videos are dumb-asses. I don't enjoy cringing, not subscribing.

Fun note I only recently realized: We were (kind of) wrong about the dogs. Everyone said after the sentient dog episode that we never see any dogs again, but you DO see a dog in a later episode, when time gets shattered. They unpause time, and you briefly see a dog peeing on a fire hydrant. I think the world was chronenberged between those two episodes, so unless I’m missing something, dogs exist again. No crazy revelation, just a fun tidbit

I appreciate the fact that you put your sponsor at the end of your video. No one wants advertisements shoved into their eye holes, and when creators put them in the middle in an attempt to force us to watch them, it gets an immediate thumbs down from me.

I agree with your thesis... a lot of Rick and Morty superfans are assholes,! It's clever and nice that the creators have been willing to troll the worst of them and call out their shitty behaviour by way of this season's new episodes. An unsubtle but nonetheless clever and laudable meta level goal for season 4's themes. Given this I would like to know at what point the creators might consider this task to be done as I would like to get back to watching some decent episodes over the frustratingly one dimensional fluff we've been getting. I particularly miss the wry digs at the absurdities and hypocrisies of everyday life, and the monstrous narcissistic sci fi family sitcom parody angle. Peace Here's to season 4.5!

If when you say "more laid back" you mean how you're just talking to a camera without a bunch of animations, I don't like it, and more importantly I wouldn't even have been interested in it if I was a new viewer. You might see channel growth start slowing down if you stick to this style for a while because the truth is you often stretch things or frame things disingenuously to fit your theories and the only thing that made me respect you despite that is the amount of effort I could see was put into these videos animating them and everything. I never would have watched enough of your content to have you start getting recommended to me if the first video I saw of you was just you talking to a camera because without the high effort I'd be left with nothing to respect over the occasional nonsense you say.

The English philosopher Alan Wells covered all this back in the 1970's. The episode also shows morality is an imaginary construct created by a society. The wasps were the most moral yet they ate their prey alive, which we would regard as immoral. Only it isn't because there's no such thing as a definitive morality.

I feel that the lesson for the episode was in the hologram not so much on the "living the moment" thing. For me was like, people that do not have any power can just complain but once you give them power they will be worst than the thing they complain about.

I am not a fan of “laid back” style, but I do appreciate all the effort that you and your team take to make this happen!! Even if the episode it’s completely irrelevant at the time of uploading. It’s always great to look back at the episode a couple years/weeks/days If been a fan for a long time; thank you for entertaining us and keep up the great work. 👍🏾
