    R&M seasons now are 10 episodes long. Maybe this means longer seasons (> 13 eps)
    Maybe well get a season totally dedicated to Jerry.

    Great, something for me to watch during my declining years, along with Season 7 of "The Venture Bros."

    Maybe, not having to wait every season to find out of they're renewed, the gap won't be so large, and we'll get 'seasons' more frequently.

    I doubt it, but I can hope.

    70 more makes 101 episodes, or 100 if you don't count the pilot.

    I don't know that it will go any faster. I think the problem is they are such perfectionists. I'd rather wait 2 years between seasons and have 10 amazing episodes, than have them more frequent and 1/2 the episodes be terrible.

    Look at this last season. Between Pickle Rick and the Sezchuan Sauce, they launched 2 MASSIVE memes/fads. How many other shows can really do that these days?

    Good premiere. Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat, good to know 18 months away and a fat 70 episode renewal hasn't dulled their wits at all. Laughed out loud when I saw the
    Kirkland MeeSeeks box.

    First of five to air this year- the remaining five will air in 2020.

    I was totally unaware too. Only clue was my FireTV queue this morning showing new episodes of Watchmen, Mr. Robot and R&M.

    Woke up a little earlier today to watch (the on-demand purchase doesn't hit until 3am) Starting Monday mornings with R&M sure as hell beats the morning shows.

    The new episodes have been good but I'm very curious as to when they are going to get back to Evil Morty story arc.

    Watching the 11/17 episode and Glootie sounds like Taika Waititi. Check IMDB, and yep it's him.

    Lots of big names in the episode: Sam Neill and Kathleen Turner played the bickering Monogatron couple, and Jeffrey Wright (from "Westworld") played fellow toilet user Tony.

    Huh. Wasn't feeling this episode. The lampooning of heist genre movies just didn't click for me.

    Unfortunately it's an off week already so have to wait until next week for episode 4.

    It didn't land with me either. But I've never felt the heist genre particularly offensive. But someone on their writing staff needs to peddle their heist-movie rage into a parody/spoof screenplay and sell it to Netflix.

    This whole season has been a miss for me and Im fanatical about this show. I actually thought the heist episode was the best of the season but I seem to be in the minority.

    A few people left the writing staff to move on to other shows. Im wondering how much thats impacting things.

    That Dragon episode was errr... interesting?

    We only get one more episode before the break, right? Hopefully they pick up the Evil Morty storyline soon.
