Rick and Morty season three satisfies




I know the ludicrous fanbase turns a lot of people away, but this latest season of Rick and Morty deserves so much recognition.

There have been multiple stand-out episodes, including, but definitely not limited to, The Rickshank Redemption, Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender, The Rickatlantis Mixup and Morty’s Mindblowers. Each of these episodes are the same in one way: I have never seen an episode as unique as them. It seems paradoxical, but I will stand by my statement.

I think the “X” factor, what sets Rick and Morty apart from (almost) every other show, is just how much story they can fit into one 22-minute episode. The aforementioned episodes only span around 22 minutes, but they feel like an entire movie. I tried to come up with a show with which I could compare it, but I cannot. It’s such a niche show.

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, the creators of the show, are absolute geniuses. Even the “bad” episodes, (Rest and Ricklaxation and The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy) show have better plots than most TV shows now. The fact that the only episodes I consider “bad” fail to exceed the towering standards set by Harmon and Roiland themselves.

Pretty much the largest complaint people have about the show regards something out of the creators’ reach: the fanbase. They are the “very smart” type: the type that dig far too deep into the show’s dialogue. If you are looking for a new TV show to watch, I highly recommend Rick and Morty. But avoid Reddit fanbase to continue enjoying the show.
