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!

    Oh hey, I'm the kind of person that pays attention more while watching you move around. I'm a kinesthetic learner, so this episode I actually enjoyed. Nothing wrong with your other uploads, but "MattPat live action avatar" has a harder time keeping me interested than "MattPat IRL". Point is, I liked this vidoe and would like more with you passionately yelling at the screen and waving your hands around like Charlie from Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Also, bring in your wife occasionally isn't a bad idea, she's funny, so it would be entertaining to have her walk in with fact updates or something of that manner. Anyhow, these are my opinions, anyone is welcome to disagree. I'm just casting my vote.

    I think if you were Australian, you might be able to pull it off. I enjoyed this style of episode but I think you need to be a little less laid back.

    1. I want Community more than Rick and Morty 2. By the end of season 2, Rick and Morty lost the appeal and flare of the show’s first season. Season Four feels even more empty, lacking even more of the grunge and emotion that pulled this fan in during Season One. 3. If you need the S4 E1 explained to you, you’re a moron. I recommend that newfangled Harley Quinn cartoon, I hear it’s quite simple.

    Boi none of your "theories" *are* theories anymore. Stick with the casual analysis it actually works much better for what you want to talk about.

    You got so close, but no cigar. IT's always what's in your best interest, and cooperating with society at large is exactly what's in your best interest. Empathy without your best interest in mind is not empathy at all.
