We should get the rest of the season in a five-week block, with no breaks.

Well, you were wrong.

I knew it'd be impossible to have them show 5 episode in a row with no breaks. What a bummer. hmpf

At least this is only (hopefully) a week-long break, episode 10 is apparently airing next Monday instead.

I watched the sex-robot episode last night.  Reminded me greatly of both "I Dated A Robot" and "Amazon Woman in the Mood".  I enjoyed it a lot more than the pilot, and quite liked several of the lines.

Fantastic episode tonight, one of the show's best. Loved seeing all of the different versions Rick, Jerry bonding with the shit eating Rick was really great, Morty's plot had a sweet ending (Rick tearing up seeing his memories of Morty), the evil Morty at the end, just a perfect episode.

A 5/5.

That was a great episode, the amount of Ricks and Mortys was great. And didn't expect that evil Morty at the end. Great stuff. big grin

This episode was utterly confusing... why were there two humans on the bus in the Upholstery Reality? I could explain one human away as being a carry-on, but two???

Good episode, though, otherwise.

The two humans were empty seats, I thought.

It's somewhat disappointing that we didn't see Upholstery Rick. Unless we did, and I missed him.

That was so funny episode; people-pizza-phone-chair thing and all the Rickness. I really like how there is serious character development immediately followed by harsh humor. Close Rick-counters of the Rick-kind may be my favorite so far.

I thought the phone-call gags got overplayed really quickly, although it was hysterical the first time with the pizzas ordering humans.

Good ep though, really great ep, Another fan-favorite!

I actually laughed more and more with each recurrance, as they amped up the ridiculouslessness just the right amount each time.

Anyway, I thought this episode was brilliant and one of the best yet (though Rick Potion #9 is still my favourite so far). I was laughing the whole way through, and absolutely loved the reveal at the end. Though wouldn't the other Ricks just assume it was our Rick controlling him, and begin their manhunt again? Methinks this might not be the last we see of evil genius Morty...

Agreed. They could have cut out the middle few of those, but I wouldn't want to miss out on upholstery world. For some reason, I really liked the idea of that.

That was a crazy episode, and funny indeed. All the different dimensions and Ricks were nice. Some good character development and a coherent plot, lots of good jokes. Best episode so far.

This was a great episode, although I wouldn't call it my favorite, it was a little lighter on laughs than I expected (not that it wasn't funny). The reveal at the end made the episode for sure though, with the possibility of future arcs involving Evil Morty.

Right now the Pilot is my favorite episode since I still think it has the most gut-busting jokes per minute. Rick Potion #9, Lawnmower Dog, and Rixty Minutes are up there on my list as well.

Well, that was the last episode for a while. It was average-good and the end was great, again. The best thing was: Wablaba dub dub! isn't just ironic catchphrase. Also, the new catchphrase.

Season ending with time frozen (and about to be resolved?) reminds me a bit of certain series' ending. It's not really the same, but it's still a great way to end a thing.

Pretty good episode, though felt a lot more like a bonus episode than a finale (Close Rick-counters really should've been the finale). Really loved the Rick dance, the different aliens at the party such as Bird Person, and the ending with Rick having fun with his grandchildren in frozen time. Kind of wish they went for more of an emotional ending with Morty at the end, and it would've been nice to have seen more of Jessica, but overall, it was a really fun episode and a solid end to the 1st Season of the show. A 5/5.

And now we play the waiting game...

Pretty good ep.....But I kinda wished that Morty would have went to collect crystals with Lincoln and Jessica though tbh....Woulda make the storyline a bit better, and I was kinda expecting that, actually.

4/5

Yeah, Jessica seemed to just disappear half-way through this one...

Anyway, I enjoyed it. Not the best of the series by any stretch, but it embodied quite a bit of what made the show so great, and was a solid season finale.

I do hope they drop this "breaking the fourth wall at the end of the episode" shit next season, though. It really takes me out of the show. hmpf

The two humans were empty seats, I thought.

Oh, yeah. That is... incredibly obvious. I must have been tired. You can tell because I wasn't remotely concerned at the time about dubbing it "Upholstery Reality" despite the fact that not all chairs are necessarily upholstered.

I do hope they drop this "breaking the fourth wall at the end of the episode" shit next season, though. It really takes me out of the show. hmpf

So, Jerry was your identification figure in this episode? tongue

This one was... okay. I think Rick's party-goers could have been worked out a little better, at least. Jerry's terrible drawing was the MVP of the episode for me, cheap laugh though it may have been.

Final episode was decent enough, easy-going fun. The part when the entire house was transported to another dimension made me laugh, as well as Rick sending everyone out for those crystals just so he could snort them and I thought Bird Person was awesome too. I really liked the design of Abradolf Lincoler, Maurice LaMarche was a good choice for his VA. Was cool seeing the device that froze time at the end of the ep too, and the Titanic sub-plot wasn't too bad.

I liked the revalation behind Rick's "Wubba lubba dub dub!" catchphrase, can't wait for them to delve into that in Season 2/the future, plus Evil Morty from ep 10. The penultimate episode actually raised a lot of questions.

Here's to Season 2, let's hope the wait isn't too long. big grin

I've now rewatched the season 1. It's very constant quality, but best episodes for me are M. Night Shaym-Aliens! and Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind.

I'm interested to see if some clips from the opening are going to be in upcoming episodes, seeing some of them were in season 1.

Can somebody recommend an episode for me to watch? From what I've read, it seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of show, and I definitely didn't love the episode I saw (the first one). Is there an episode in particular I should watch that might hook me better?

I would say try Lawnmowers Dog, Rick Potion #9, Raising Gazorpazorp, or Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind. Those are all my favorite eps and personally, feel like they represent just how good this show can be.

If you can get past the shitty voice acting, you'll love the show. That's how it was for me anyways. Repeated viewings changed my mind about the show.

The voice acting is definitely a love-or-hate type of thing, but it most certainly isn't "shitty."

You want shitty voice acting? Go watch any Simpsons episode in which a professional athlete guest starred.

The voice acting is a sort of tongue-in-cheek self-aware type of "bad". Justin Roiland intentionally allows himself to trip over his lines a lot. This works on two levels, one in a character way (for Morty it plays into his adolescent awkwardness, and for Rick it fits his being drunk all the time) and the other lending the show a silly improvisational tone. Personally I find it extremely clever, and hilarious.

Scrappylive: Unfortunately, if you didn't care for the first episode at all, the show probably isn't for you (personally the pilot is still my favorite episode, I was laughing almost the whole way though). That said, if you want to try another the second episode Lawnmower Dog is a good one.

Rick and Morty Season 1 DVD Release Summary:

From comedic masterminds Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland comes Rick and Morty: The Complete First Season Blu-ray and DVD. Adult Swim's newest series follows the adventures of mad scientist Rick Sanchez, who returns after 20 years to live with his daughter, her husband, and their children Morty and Summer. All 11 episodes of the hilariously frantic comedy will be available on Blu-ray and DVD, featuring a unique slip case designed by the show creators themselves.

Each release (2 discs on DVD, and 1 disc on Blu) will include Episode Commentaries and Animatics, but the BD version will also provide UltraViolet digital copies of the episodes as well. You can pre-order these from Amazon right away. Package art isn't finalized yet, but stay tuned!

And finally, some Rick and Morty trivia.

*Did you know Mike Chapman from Homestar Runner did the animation for Rick and Morty's Rushed License Adventure?

The comic book is presumably "The Good Morty" pamphlet as seen in episode 10, since Justin Roiland said they'd be included in the DVD and Blu-ray release of season 1.

No doubt that it won't be included in the region 2 release. smile

Rick and Morty full comic con panel.

http://video.adultswim.com/convention-panels/sdcc-2014-rick-and-morty-panel.html

Highlights from the panel (thanks to Shaunbadia).

•Season 2 will be more "Intergalactic". Dan Harmon claims that during the first season they learned that they weren't necessarily confined by "Oh, this is a B-story about the family at home and this is an A-story about an adventure in space".
•Justin Roiland notes that much like with Season 1 there will be "Little, over-arcing, story-arc things that culminate at the end".
•Justin Roiland reveals that there is "A teensy-weensy bit of multiverse stuff" and "No time TRAVELLING". There's a little bit of time BENDING though.
•Justin Roiland does some stuff in Rick and Morty's voices about Comic-Con and mocks the "Game of Thrones" attire donned by moderator Ryan Ridley, complete with Rick saying "Fuck" and Morty saying "Dipshit".
•They show the animatic which was posted by @Insomnia above (Incidentally, it was not included in the video of the panel but they do mention it's from the second episode of season two).
•They show off the DVD/Blu-ray box art for season one, mentioning that they will include "The Good Morty" pamphlet from the episode "Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind", 250 of which are signed by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland and were "Golden Ticketed" in, meaning they have been distributed randomly. The pamphlet is 17 pages and according to Justin Roiland, tells a tale of different Mortys who believe that a true Morty should be Rick-less and avoid the calls to adventure of Rick and any that decide to team up shall be punished. Two panels from the pamphlet are shown which depict Summer shooting up Heroin in the garage much to the horror of a bespectacled Morty, who upon learning that Rick supplied her with the Heroin, throws a can of soda at him in anger.
•The DVD and Blu-ray will be "Jam packed" with extras including commentary on every episode with Dan Harmon, Justin Roiland and the writers/directors, animatics on every episode and three guest commentary tracks including Robert Kirkman and Scott Gimple of "The Walking Dead" fame, Matt Groening, Al Jean and other unspecified writers from "The Simpsons" and finally, Pendleton "Pen" Ward and Kent Osborne from "Adventure Time".
•Justin Roiland confirms during the Q&A that there will be another "Rixty Minutes" episode, albeit with a different title and that they intend to do one every season, making it their "Treehouse of Horror". It is also mentioned that the writers were up until 5 a.m. a week prior to the panel writing the B-story for the episode, which Dan Harmon notes they may need to throw out because "It's no good", though Justin says he likes it and that it's about Jerry. To be more specific, it's about Jerry's penis.
•One fan asks if there will be an episode showing Jerry's alien pregnancy that we see briefly in the season one opening sequence, to which Justin Roiland replies "Maybe. You just might see that".
•During the Q&A it is noted that the use of songs from the 90s in the show is simply because of old age and that the mouths of the characters occasionally hanging downward "Like a ball sack" is a nod to the animation style of John K. particularly "Ren & Stimpy". Justin Roiland notes his love of John K. even though he is certain he would "Fucking hate this show if he saw it". Justin also quickly notes that another influence on his work is Mike Judge, even though nobody asked.
•Justin Roiland does a random little advertisement thing off the top of his head in the style of the "Rixty Minutes" episode. "It tastes just like a slice of New York Pizza, but it's right here in downtown Van Eyes. Pizza Michael's. Eye sell it".
•The panel caps off with Dan Harmon spotting a woman in a Mr. Meeseeks costume and getting her to join a woman up front holding a Meeseeks box so they can have her jump up as though she was summoned while Justin Roiland does the Mr. Meeseeks voice and gets her to act along to it.

Great info, glad we're getting some kind of time-related plot. Also glad we get another "Rixty Minutes" episode. Not glad about the Americans getting that awesome season 1 Blu-ray with all those extras. Release it in the UK! frown
