Rick and Morty
« on: September 21, 2016, 11:05:59 PM »
I saw a guy hawking a shirt before Dick's 3 that I liked the look of, so I snagged one. Talking to him about the design after the transaction, he said it was based on Rick and Morty, a show I'd heard of but otherwise knew nothing about.

So I figured, since I own the shirt, I might as well give the show a try.

Surely some of you stoners are hip to this. It's one of those late-night Adult Swim jobs, heavy on the crude humor and irreverence and very imaginative. It's not hysterical but it's pretty amusing. I dig it.

I absolutely love this show! It's so awesome! I can't wait for season 3. This show started out crude but has gotten pretty complex, vey funny, sometimes deep and builds on a background theme and story. Which was refreshing because at first glance I thought it was just going to be another dumb stoner cartoon

I like The Phish from Vermont.

no still very very crude but that's not all it is it gets pretty complex and intelligent at times. one of the writers for the show is the main writer for one off my other favorite shows " community"

Just a couple weeks ago a friend sent me this video.  It's the only thing by them I've ever seen, but it cracked me up.  The dialog is taken, verbatim, from an actual court transcript, a murder trial in Georgia.  IIRC, this video was produced for Comic-Con.  (The language has been bleeped in this video, but it's still most definitely NSFW)

The wife and I just started watching this a week or two ago after we each had a co-worker tell us they thought we'd like it. Love all the smart humor that is hidden throughout. I think my favorite smart joke so far came from the Rick Potion #9 episode.

Jerry: I wish that shotgun was my penis.
Beth: If it was, I'd be Ernest Hemingway.

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

This show is brilliant. I wish season three would come out all ready.

Dan Harmon who is the head writer for this show, is one of the best comedy writers doing it right now. He gets so deep with some jokes but then can perfectly execute a beautiful moment right along side a boner joke, or insane movie reference. He is one of the inspirations of making me want to write comedy in life.

Wow, perfect timing on the thread, bc I just started watching this show a week ago, and I absolutely fucking LOVE it.

My gf and I are both hooked.
To know me is to know my love of Phish.  :smoke:

Rick & Morty rules!!  I discovered it after there was a R&M couch gag on the Simpsons a season or two ago.  I was a big Community fan, too.

the voice of both characters is Justin Roiland (I often wonder if he does both characters' lines in one take or if he overdubs).  he also played Christopher Cross in Yacht Rock, which is one of my favorite things I've ever found on the internet.

I'm gonna have to check out the actual show now that I know Dan Harmon is behind it.  I loved Community.  We got our six seasons...now it's time for the movie!
