For people who missed it, Adult Swim’s streaming site started airing the Season 3 premiere of Rick and Morty in a constant loop for many hours. The remainder of the season will not release until this summer, but it was a surprise, and a way to catch up after a protracted absence. Himself turned to save his family life. With Rick in the Sanchez family and custody back on Federation-occupied Earth, things looked bleak for our heroes. And true to their type, Dan Harmon was able to craft a battle that was hilarious poignant and totally unlike anything fans and Justin Roiland expected. It is worth reiterating how seamless a transition this episode was given.
If you have been following the production process for Season 3, then there is a feeling that Roiland and Harmon have been unable to receive their scripts. But whatever difficulties may be going on behind the scenes, the product is as a fresh and funny. How this episode breezed along, it felt like it might have aired a week after “The Wedding Scratchers” instead of 18 months. At this position, I will get into spoiler boundary, so if you were not able to catch the premiere yesterday, consider yourself warned. Hopefully, Adult Swim will produce the episode available again around. Harmon and Roiland were defying expectations from the scene, as it seemed like they were going to gloss over the jailbreak of Rick and revert the series back to a status quo. That strategy might have been amusing in its right, even though it would have been served as a payoff for the wait between seasons. Rick proved a subject that is hard to control, as he wasted most of his time revealing farting butts in coffee cups and trying to stock up on Szechuan sauce packs.This episode continued to expectations because it turned what seemed to be a flashback to a prolonged jailbreak. It is debatable whether Rick wants an origin story in the first place, and Roiland and Harmon appear to fall into the “Why bother?” camp.
After Season 2 had wrapped, we saw Rick at a moment of vulnerability turning himself in. But here we learned that the thing was a part of an elaborate plot to rid himself and the Council of Ricks in one fell swoop. This time out, the self-serving side of Rick won.Morty and Summer went through some hurdles this week. Summer wrestled as she strove to reconcile the grandfather she looks up to and admires together with the 28, with the dilemma that plagued is 99 percent of the moment. Along the way, be reminded of just how badly things can go for people in the orbit of Rick, and we must revisit the Cronenberg world.
As always, it’s interesting to see this series reference its continuity and build on previous events in ways that are unexpected. How many levels of bust-up are there of his body at this time and Rick? This episode continued to deliver laughs as the tone grew darker. Ricks’ Council had an entertaining hurrah. The Council of Ricks and the war between the Federation also proved entertaining, delivering all the spectacle and excess that Rick claimed he went to jump over initially. And for defeating his enemies Rick’s solution was devastatingly easy – take their cash away. Rick continued his games up. He preyed upon Beth’s love and was able to cut Jerry from the picture entirely (hopefully this does not mean we have seen the last of him). And his status quo was restored by him even though that is the last thing Morty wants. Rant into Morty was amusing, but also, it served as a look into the mind of a guy who can’t let himself proceed or to grow. It doesn’t necessarily mean he is a fantastic person, although Rick is a character beneath the belching and all of the bravado.
We’ll see if this episode does set a tone for the remainder of Season 3. This episode pulled up right where the Season 2 finale left off, maintaining the level of quality high as it defied expectations or what Rick was hoping to do by turning himself. This episode delivered plenty of high-concept humor as it provided a portrait.
Rick and Morty will return on screens on July 30. Stay tuned for more news.
