This side plot was good, but the rest of the episode was just random garbage.
Loved the random garbage. Specifically "Tiny Bits" and "Personal Space".
5 stars for rick and morty -1 for all you balding redditor killjoy fucks
One day Lotsmoreorcs is going to find out that it's possible for good shows to have flawed episodes and then his goddamn head's gonna explode.
I dunno, I just watched it last night so I had nearly a week to digest both opinions; I really liked it. It does have a bit of a Family Guy style, the channel flipping replacing "this reminds me of.." but they were all funny (especially Tiny Bites) and it does expand on the universe instead of taking some shot at a celebrity.
Speaking of, the Ice T thing from an earlier episode did get on my nerves, especially since it wasn't Ice T and it just wasn't funny. What, you can get Herzog but Ice T says no? That's waaaack. I'm also surprised that this was able to air on CN. I guess the Hand Banana ep of ATHF was pretty close to showing a dong on tv, but holy shit so many penises vaginas and buttholes!
Oh yeah spoiler alert this episode's pretty juvenile and so am I.

This bit makes me want to give this show another chance.
Hell, I'm jealous I didn't write this bit. This is my jam.
That Guy according to the thread above, this is another "sketch" episode with not a lot of actual plot. If you recall a year or so ago (or whenever S1 was on) there was a lot of arguing back and forth about the show because the clips from that episode were some of the first ones on here (like Gazorpazorpfield and Ants In My Eyes Electronics), and for those who didn't watch the show, their first exposure to it.
I'd recommend just starting with S2 from the beginning, for one of the best episodes. There is some continuity that bleeds over from S1, but it's not that different from starting The Simpsons around S3 or 4, which is when most people did. But hey, some people just don't like it. I was having a conversation with this person who has the same taste in music, movies, comedy, everything that I do, and I kept telling her to watch Rick and Morty and Bojack Horseman because she doesn't like animation, despite the voices being actors she really likes. Anyway she was like "I've got something I need to tell you.." like she found out she was pregnant or something, but nope, just that she gave them a try and it still wasn't her cup of tea. So I don't care :)

Speaking of bits, does anyone remember the thread where we came up with sitcom ideas? I've been trying to remember where that is (it might be the POE Facebook group or somewhere here). I was thinking of continuing the ideas I had but I can't remember much.
oh shit, maybe that should be started again, because i totally have one. "Let's be Frank" and it's anne frank, pilot episode "anne learns the drums"
it's basically home alone with a colonel klink... every episode anne sends him down the garbage chute or something. "Ahhh no you hear nothing! Ve are chust doink some spring cleaning!" while they rattle pans around to mask anne learning the drums upstairs. You know?
I haven't gotten into it yet. I've liked what I've seen, but I've been watching a lot of Gumball lately. Also you need to check out Steven Universe. It's brilliant.
I could probably watch Steven Broniverse without turning into a manchild, on account of all the grown-up points I've got, but I don't really feel like it. My grown-up points are better spent elsewhere.
And I'm glad you're not a Brick, Cena. The only thing worse than a Unibro is a Brick or a Bro'rty.
Steven Universe will GIVE you grownup points. Its rated TV PG and it explicitly shows that its gay characters are gay. No hiding behind punk out terms like "best friend" as MLP did with Sweetie Drops and Lyra.
Another area where SU is better than MLP is the music. I never really cared much for the songs in MLP. It baffled me that the brony community would sing them all the damn time. Now SU's music is awesome and pumps me up.
Ugh, now I know you're trolling. "Cutie Mark Crusaders" is the number one best workout song ever, and if you can't do crunches to Vinyl & Ocatvia's Dubstep Concerto, then there must be something medically wrong with you. Steven Broniverse has probably drained you of so many grownup points that now you're delusional, suffering from acute grownup-point anaemia - Dr Homer prescribes two episodes of LazyTown and one hour of doing mortgage paperwork, stat!
You almost made me reflexively one star on a rick and morty video with all this MLP crap. You monster.
Shut up and watch MLP and Steven Universe Gdork.
I think I get the point, and it's very Hezoggian: The actions of all life on Earth can ultimately be traced back to mating. This is because of Darwinian fusvival of the fittest: the traits most likely to result in a specimen mating are most likely to be passed on. This is the way of all life on Earth. Humans consider themselves to be above this; they believe that they strive for greater things. They value the defeat of their base biological natures and have utterly failed at it.
Man, I did Herzog that Herzog up.

I think saying that humans truly understand genocide is giving us too much credit.
|Prickly Pete |
Should've been Paul F. Tompkins doing Werner Herzog
I kinda assumed it was! Holy shit Herzog does it again!

Chris Parnell is a genius at embodying characters that are not fully self-aware, kind of lost in their own denial of reality and simultaneously deluding themselves. His character in Rick and Morty is a lot more endearing than Cecil in Archer, though, and I enjoy him far more.
This show continues to amaze me. There is so much genius in television animation out there right now, between this show, Gravity Falls, Bojack Horseman, and Over the Garden Wall.

I meant Cyril!
But that would actually make a great joke on Archer if people just forgot his name and called him Cecil, like the lion who got killed by the dentist.
THIS TOOK ME OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE AND DID NOT EXPLICITLY EXPLAIN AND LAY EVERYTHING OUT FOR ME RICK AND MORTY SUCK
Great, great cameo in an otherwise god-awful episode.
