    The thing about Rick and Morty isn't even really that it's a smart show, most of the science is just cartoon magic anyway. It a funny stupid show where Rick is haunted by being unable to save his wife, which no doubt was one of the reasons he left Beth. His intelligence he views as a curse probably because it wasn't enough to save his wife and it wasn't enough to be a good father, but Morty is his chance to make up for that. There's layers. Even though he wants desperately to be put out of his misery his baser instincts won't allow him to die unless by his own hand. You get a feeling that he's such an ass to Morty because he wants to prepare him for life and the kind of loss that he has been through despite how harsh he can be to him. I think it's more complex than its given credit for.

    I think that the stuff about Rick being a failure was planted in the 3rd season and prior to that he was just an almighty superman.

    This is why I love Bojack Horseman. He's a giant refutation of the IDGAF asshole Rick Sanchez has popularized. He's also an asshole who lives mostly outside of society and is vastly rich. However, the show shows us time and time again that he's unhappy.

    There are people that want to wear, "I'M PICKLE RICK!!" on a t-shirt. I'm the kind of person that wants that entire monologue from that family therapist on a t-shirt. Because that is one of the sickest burns Rick has gotten in the entire series.

    I don’t get how someone could hear the therapist monologue at the end and not see the point of that episode. It’s my favorite part other than the rat slaughter.

    I think that there's an aspect of the toxic fandom that you're not touching on, Bob. A lot of them ARE Rick. At least, they think they are. All of their life they've been told that they're smart and exceptional and special, and maybe they even lived that out. They watched the movies from the eighties that told them that one day they'd finally get theirs and these years of repression and abuse they've received would finally be vindicated. And then it didn't happen. They're still incredibly intelligent and talented people that see the truth of the universe that other people just can't handle (in their own minds, anyway), but they're not happy, or contented, or even secure in their own skin. Rick is those things (good and bad), but he manages to look cool doing it a lot of the time. Rick gets what he wants in an immediate sense and the things he doesn't want don't seem to ever really affect him in any permanent way (because the character is exceptionally well-written and has very realistic walls built up specifically to present the illusion of invulnerability to those stimuli). This is the best that these people think they can aspire to, so it shouldn't shock anybody that they view Rick Sanchez as a role model.

    I know these things because I'm one of those people in a lot of ways. I grew up experiencing things that I am only now being shown were both damaging and abnormal, but I'm smart. Everybody agrees that I'm smart. Everybody told me how smart I am and I kicked the living shit out of school whenever I bothered to pay the slightest bit of attention to it (because, let's face it - some of that work was just BENEATH me, right?). I'm successful at all that business shit. I've got a good job and a good paycheck and I know enough about what's going on to explain to people why scoring a one-on-one with a Kim isn't an achievement with some authority. I've also got dissociative identity disorder and a deep and abiding hatred of myself that I may very well never get over. I'm trying really, really hard right now, but it's a steep hill to climb, and regardless of what my therapist seems to think, I'm pretty sure that this ghost is going to haunt me until I die. There is something deeply appealing to a person like me about Rick Sanchez and Walter White and Bojack Horseman and all the rest of these garbage person anti-heroes. It meshes my view of myself with a depiction that I can at least feel for a second is sympathetic.

    So yeah - I get it. It's deeply unhealthy, but I get it. And the thing of it is that those people - my people, I guess - kind of need this. We know we're awful, horrifying, absolutely disgusting wastes of potential that thoroughly deserve the loathing we earn from society. We know we deserve it. Just...just think about that for a minute. To know as an absolute fact that you're the absolute worst and to believe that you deserve every bit of unhappiness and failure that you suffer through. That's not a state of mind that you can solve with logic or reason. The only solution to it is therapeutic, but so help me god if it hadn't been for Greg House, for a while there I strongly suspect that I would have walked into my closet and done my best impersonation of a sport coat somewhere between the end of college and the point that I got into therapy a while back. So I clung to people like Rick because they showed me that I could be the thing that I believed myself doomed to be and still be the hero. Sort of. As much of a hero as I wanted to be, anyway.

    That's the part that I think you miss here, Bob. The sad, pitiful part. At this point I only know that some non-zero population of the toxic fandom is that person - I don't know how to help them to be better, or even what to do with the fact that some population (and probably a disproportionate amount of the second-tier thought leaders) of the toxic fandom are that guy, but I just figure that it can't hurt to point out that that guy is in there in the hopes that somebody smarter than me knows what the fuck to do about it.

    R and M audience assumes people don't like the show because they don't get it. This guy says all of them don't get it without assuming there's a third chain in his philosophy. Maybe I don't get the show and am stupid but it hasn't not once made me think it was smart or funny, I just like the animation and action scenes

  • Jim Callahan
    Jim Callahan 2 months ago

    Yyyyeahhh except, as Ellis puts it, “Framing and aesthetics supersede the rest of the text. Always, always. Always.”
    To take your example of Tyler Durden, it wasn’t really just the audience’s fault he became the idealised self-image for a generation of douchebags. Intentionally or not, that film’s presentation was massively skewed towards imbuing him with as much style, power and charisma as it could throughout - it never effectively counteracts that, to communicate on a gut level that his personality or worldview should be disavowed.
    Fans aren’t projecting by seeing Rick as a problematic and troubled but essentially righteous antihero - that’s a very strong undercurrent present throughout the show itself. To the extent that it’s a problem, the creators themselves should be held accountable.

    I’m embarrassed by my fandom because I’m 27 and a massive Five Nights At Freddy’s fan yet I’m embarrassed that I share my love for a genuinely Terrifying game series with 5 year olds and man-children in there early 20s screaming at a screen yet I think these games should be held at a higher standard than this held with the great survival horror games like resident evil and silent hill

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
    And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid

    Also I think the main thing that makes Rick compelling and makes people want to quote him, is because while much of what he says is screwed up nonsense, some of it at least feels very real at least to some..

    I think it was best put by Justin Rolland himself via Morty in S3E1 when he says Rick shouldn’t be anyone’s hero, he’s “more like a demon or a really fucked up god”. He spends almost the entire episode explaining to Summer the many, many reasons why Rick is definitely not the good guy

  • Kean Giledaks
    Kean Giledaks 6 months ago

    True how many idolise and overestimate Rick, but you are missing the real big picture. The inventions of Rick are all baloney cartoon magic and inconsistent with any scientific mumbo jumbo he rants about. He is usually just spouting lines from the handbook on how to sound like an intellectual asshole. The only difference between Rick and most anybody is that he wears his assholeness on his sleeves, in a narrative where that is OK because he is actually more important than other people not only in his own mind. Some idiots may quote him or shout Pickle Rick as a tribute to his awesomeness, but I think most fans of the character Rick are like myself fans of how he portrays the asshole that most people have inside.
    Look at any statistics. Most people think they are more intelligent than average. Most people think they are better drivers than average, make better conclusions than average, understand and know more than average. Most people will display asshole behavior if to believe there will be no consequences.
    Most people are Rick.

    The trouble is that the main visual focus is slick action beats of Rick successfully coming through. It’s the same problem the first Transformers has. Megan Fox’s character is actually the smartest and most capable, and should technically be the main human protagonist of the movie, but people only remember her as the eye candy because that is what the camera focuses on.

  • Max Thornton
    Max Thornton 6 months ago

    As far as I am aware, the obnoxious R&M don't think they are smart cause "lul science." They think they are smart because they watch a show that addresses mature themes with matures answers. And it's been a long time since I have heard any obnoxious fans who weren't ironic about their "it takes a high iq to watch rick and morty" thing. Maybe those unironic people are out there, but I don't see them to any capacity that warrants a video like this.

    Rick is a deadbeat father, who is also a alcoholic. The pain a suffering he causes himself and others is show in the show in a profound way. Its kinda obvious he wasnt to be respected or idolized. And really liked when morty started to grow a spine and show just how weak rick is.

    Agreed, agreed and agreed. I found R&M a bit later than everyone and saw Pickle Rick ep later than everyone else as well. My overwhelming reaction at the end of the ep was, so he did all that just to get out of counseling?? And whilst I find the show funny and intelligently written, Rick is just a gigantic fucking dick. So I find it hard to be watching and want to be invested in. That's just me though.

    Vance Maximus delivers quite possibly the best deconstruction of Rick in the entire series, in Vindicators 3:

      Heavy Critic 2 months ago +6

      @Twilight Gardens presentations: You missed the point. The point is that good and evil are not artificial constructs. Neither are love and family (I don't really understand what cooked food had to do with anything, though). They're all descriptions of organically evolved constructs that stem from necessity, and have developed over a very, very long time. They're descriptions of states we gravitate towards.
      That they're somehow artificial, is just nihilistic bullshit that's spewed by people who want to sound intelligent, or who want to avoid facing the possibility that they may in fact be evil - because they're afraid.

    I’m sorry, can’t he be a bad ass during portions while also being a complete failure. I don’t think the two are necessarily at odds with each other.
    And ultimately the main way he messed up if you still have the goal of skipping counseling was being too confident in himself and not developing redundancy systems. I mean the man has a universe for a car battery, a trap door with a syringe that opens from a voice command is all he would have needed. XD hindsight is 20/20, but overconfidence is blinding. ^.^

    Oh dear, Bob - I can see what you were aiming at and I get it, but ... alas... you failed to see the trap.
    This subject (fans and varied fan expression in Rick and Morty fandom) is like... that one game from a classic movie - Remember the movie Wargames? This is "would you like to play a game?" you might be the smartest man in the world but you immediately you've made an idiot mistake as soon as you type "yes".
    R&M is an instersting show and it's fandom is equally interesting in that there's lots of ways to appreciate R&M and there isn't really a "wrong way to appreciate"... or a "wrong fan of" any good show. Obviously property damage is not a good way to be a fan of anything except demolition but it's impossible to start saying that people are being too pretentious or too shallow in their apperciation of a thing without immeditely falling into one or both camps yourself, i.e. being a hippocrite. I can tell that's not what you were aiming at, you tried really hard and I'd love to give you a pass on this one... but again, alas... we are judged on what we do and sentiment is only falvouring - you done messed up buddy. - Other than that, nice video A+ for effort.
