    Another solid episode though I wish they would get back to the Evil Morty storyline. Or give us an update on Tammy and Phoenix Person.

    I think this new season has been hit/miss. The Vat of Acid episode was one of the better ones though maybe the best this season.

    I've enjoyed the last three. But they were certainly three very different episodes. One was a thematic idea extended to the absurd. One was a classic adventure. And one was and entire episode centered around Rick rigging the entire universe just so he could be a vengeful dick to make a point. None of which are out of character of a R&M episode.

    Vat of Acid is really good and worth the rewatch.

    Childrick of Mort was kind of a dud.

    I'm bored of Jerry, which appears to be another version of Jerkass Homer. There doesn't seem to be any redeeming qualities left in Jerry. I'll have to rewatch season 1 to see if he was always like this.

    And why did Morty and Summer behave so out of character? They are usually much brighter and more interesting. It was more like Rickbot versions of their usual selves.

    I still cant believe that with such a gap between season 3 and 4, this is what we got. I found this episode to be tremendously lacking. There have been a few bright spots but they are few and far between. If the gap between Season 4 and 5 is as large, I could see them losing audience.

    The creatives seems to be going way outta their way to prove to the audience that their characters aren't "good people". Not "bad guys", just extraordinarily flawed. We get it.

    But it's starting to get maudlin. At this point the only character that I like is Mr Poopy Butthole.

    Did like the Tinder for Planets at the end.

    Just saw the promos for the season 4 finale. I don't have my hopes up but hopefully I'll be proven wrong (since the Pickle Rick episode was pretty good).

    Wow, we're already at the finale? I guess they go by quickly when there's only 10 episodes per season and they break those into 2 groups of 5.

    Yah, that annoys me as well. Clearly someone needs to be thrown into a vat of acid.

    This has been my favorite show for years but this season has mostly felt like a miss to me. There have been a couple of decent episodes but I never went through all 3 seasons and said "No, I dont like this episode, Ill watch a different one". Ive probably seen every episode at least 30 times. This season, there are several Ill be skipping. The dragon episode for sure. I dont think I even rewatched that one.

    I dont know. Something felt "off". I know they lost some of the writing team. I wonder if thats had an impact on the storylines.

    The season finale was to me, the best episode of the season. I wish they hadnt crammed so much stuff into one episode but that episode felt like classic Rick and Morty.

    Yeah, I was indeed proven wrong. It was a great episode. Worthy of the season finale. Now they need to get back to the Evil Morty arc.

    Edit: Rick is sure losing a lot of fights these days. I guess it's the "superman syndrome". Stories are a lot less interesting with an omnipotent protagonist

    I am very late to this party, but I just finished season 1. This show is hilarious! I didn't realize until halfway through the season there's a scene after the end credits, so I'll need to rewatch a couple of episodes to catch those.
