    Yeah, you're not saying anything surprising. Rick is comparable to Dr. Cox in Scrubs -- a character who generally triumphs and succeeds through his intelligence and sheer force of personality, but whose strength, particularly in social situations, comes from his resignation to being alone. Rick, like Dr. Cox, has decided that he's destined to be alone, to have no one around him whom he can trust or care about, and as a result he behaves as if he doesn't care what others think. It's a character who's able to essentially lie to everyone -- even himself -- about what's important to him, only to be haunted in moments of clarity by how alone he is.

    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 😎

    a) You're a bit late to the party critisizing R&M fans for their bullshit
    b) You seem to be pretty much the same as the most cringeworthy R&M fans (ooh it's so sart, too smart for it's fans but not me tee hee)
    c) Grow the fuck up. You can like the show without having to qualify it. I get that you're inclined towards guilt based on your identity but don't turn this into another white liberal guilt millstone around your neck, you're not a martyr.

    I'm not even really sure that the fans you're talking about exist in any significant percentage. Most people who enjoy the show 'get it.' While it's a smart show that very frequently lambasts sci-fi tropes and delights in inverting conventional expectations of plot, character development, and archetypes, it is extremely heavy handed in it's portrayal of Rick as an unstable, nihilistic, narcissistic, self-interested, cowardly douche. The idea of the delusional fan telling people who don't like the show that they're stupid probably has a grain of truth to it. It's a smart and funny show, so if a person doesn't enjoy it, I might assume that they truly aren't familiar with some of the more philosophical concepts or that they misunderstand the purpose of the characters and their actions related to the narrative and the nature of the show. If they tell me that they prefer Family Guy or something similar, there's a chance I may end the topic of conversation in a way that doesn't pamper their ego or hide the fact that I don't think they'll be capable of enjoying it. Though he's not healthily emulatable, the desire to idolize Rick as a character isn't much different from idolizing House, Jack Sparrow, Dr. Frankenstein, or other highly flawed, narcissistic, supposed genius characters. The only sub-community that actually makes me cringe are the creeps that ship a romantic/sexual relationship between Rick & Morty (though yes, I'm familiar with the Channel 101 origins). Like the joyful fan exclamations of 'wubba-lubba-dub-dub!' I think most people understand the duplicity and irony of the Pickle Rick meme. BTW, that dude that everyone shows screeching "I'm Pickle REE!" in the McDonald's is an obvious troll.

    Hard to take you serious with that accent, every time you say Morty it cracks me up, a bit of a mush mouth, but I can tell your very intelligent and insightful, I on the other hand am an ignorant asshole.
    Anyway, insulting you wasn't my main reason to comment, I really just wish people would stop thinking so hard about, and over analyzing Rick and Morty. It is so well liked BECAUSE it can be taken at face value and just enjoyed for what it is. I love Rick simply because everything always seems to work out for him, one way or another, which is the complete opposite of most characters like him in other shows, and also complete opposite of most peoples lives, where I bet a majority of people feel like nothing goes their way most of the time. The Fan base is so toxic when it starts to tell the rest of us "simpletons" how and what we should think about each episode. Which is kind of what you are doing, and has been pointed out in other comments.
    Anywho...keep creating, even though I didn't agree with the delivery, I appreciate the effort you put into it.

    So, is it too self aware to say that I won't be like everyone else that chimes in and thinks they're not like everyone else that laughs at the pickle joke...like everyone else? You know, the people that would rather lament on how they too are above the aforementioned deifying of a fundamentally flawed, egocentric nihilist they are. Join the hoards of other fans that think they are intellectually superior to other fans that "just don't get it." Or, should I just opt to say that no one fan type is better than another and just let dipshits, know-it-alls, and intellectuals alike enjoy this fictional multiverse of craziness for each of thier own selfish reasons? Thus foregoing the requirement of perceived superiority in one camp of fandom versus another. Because at the end of the day, everyone decomposes. I think I'll make a video about the hierarchy of R&M fans...

  • E Unit

    Yeah ok but... your argument only works if we except your supposition that forming meaningful relationships with other human beings is intrinsically...wait for it... healthy.
    Fans admire Rick because he does whatever he wants and doesn't worry about the consequences to other people or himself. Which makes him a sociopath but there are plenty of celebrated sociopaths in our society, Steve Jobs comes to mind. While you do demonstrate that Rick's actions also have negative consequences for him and therefore could be considered unsuccessful, you don't demonstrate why simply being a well adjusted normal, healthy, Jerry type person should be considered successful.
    You state that Rick is a failure but fail yourself in demonstrating what it means to succeed or whether success is even possible. I would contend that Rick long ago stopped trying to succeed and his sole goal is merely to amuse himself.
    "Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools."

    "You are wrong about Pickle Rick" - Proceeds to tell us the *very, very obvious* moral of that episode for 5 minutes. The therapist spelled it out, for crying out loud.

    Right on Bob. I see people quote Morty's rant to Summer when she's telling him that Tiny Rick is in trouble as if it's a triumphant smackdown, that whole "pack your shit up" bit. But Summer was right, Morty was wrong, Morty knew he was wrong, and he was willfully endangering his own family member, all for popularity, and to leverage it for his creepy cheerleader crush. That wasn't a smack down, that was Morty at some of his worst as a human being in the series so far.

    But if he hadnt turned his self into a pickle he never would have met Jaguar, subsequently reveal to him a path of redemption and freedom, which could have potentially led to Rick and Morty dying later to the hands of that psycho with piano keys for teeth...

    It's also weird to me that seemingly none of the "I'm smart because I watch this show" crowd seem to get that Pickle Rick is an episode about alcoholism. Dan Harmon has said as much himself on his podcast. I can't help but think that all of the merchandise proudly proclaiming "I'm Pickle Rick" is really saying "I'm a functional alcoholic!" and that on its own is kinda funny in a way.

      Vincent Bullock Day ago

      I guess I misunderstood. I apologize. I do of course think you grossly overestimate the average intelligence of a group of people who's claim to fame is several simultaneous and unrehearsed violent riots over the availability of dipping sauce. And this was after the Pickle Rick lecture IIRC.

    • David Ward
      David Ward Day ago

      +Vincent Bullock - I agree with him so much as I would agree with him if he said the earth is round.
      It's really his arrogance about how only HE understands "the earth is round and everyone else thinks its flat" (to extend the comparison) that I'm calling out, and the effect it has on his credibility as "insightful".
      Geez, having to spell this out for you has me thinking Bob's fanbase really does need every little thing spoon fed to them.
      And I don't really care what you think of what I think - my comment was directed at Bob, not you, in the first place.

    • Vincent Bullock
      Vincent Bullock Day ago

      So you agree that with Bob? I don't care what you think of him, honestly.

    • David Ward
      David Ward Day ago

      +Vincent Bullock - BS. Calling out Bob's arrogance apparent from this video isn't an ad hominem - it's the very flipping point I'm trying to make. Calling it a fallacy only works if I use it as a point to discredit some other separate argument Bob's made. You can't just cry "fallacy" in any context and think it solves a critique; that's a strawman (you'll have heard of that one if you're a fan of fallacies).
      He made an entire video which purports him to be smarter than the average "embarassing" Rick & Morty fan which only ironically placed himself in that embarrassing camp because the "insight" he thinks he has into the show's themes are very very clear in the show (and you don't need a 400 IQ to understand).
      The whole thing is embarrassingly ironic and Bob not having enough self-awareness of this only enhances the arrogance to comic levels.

  • Commander_Ninja

    I think people love Rick so much cuz a lot of people are miserable like him, so they can relate, but unlike him, they don't have the intellect to lord over people or the resources to do whatever they want, so in that way, it's kind of a power fantasy.
    Probably a very basic and obvious observation, but I don't spend much time mulling over the show. I just like watching it.

  • FleaOnPeanut
    FleaOnPeanut Day ago

    To me "Pickle Rick" seemed like a kind of eager fan interpretation of a R&M episode with none of the nuance. Overwhelmingly concerned with a gimmick and catchphrase, following the trend of extreme violence that's developed in the show but lacking the creative and thoughtful existential turns that marked earlier seasons to temper and juxtapose it by having a third party deconstruct the premise and character dynamics of the show attempting to create a moment of clever insight but ultimately just summarizing what we as fans already know. Also, it's real light on the jokes and snappy dialogue which I think underscore the best parts of the series. Actual thought instead of iconic set pieces that are pandering to the adoration of the lowest common denominator of the fandom.
    Also, why are you using the loaded term "Toxic Masculinity?" Are you Jezebel.com?

    The way you've described the intent of Rick's character is how I've interpreted the show since the first episode. Fans who latch onto the absurd/irreverent aspects, and only quote Rick's purposefully random moments when asked (or not asked) about their thoughts on the show, can be annoying in their misguided understanding. Thank you, Bob, for stating these facts more precisely than the rest of us.

  • Jesse Schoedel
    Jesse Schoedel 2 days ago

    I'll take that point about Pickle Rick one step further. Rick isn't a coward because he turned himself into a pickle to get out of family therapy. He's a coward because he chose to turn himself into a pickle rather than just tell Beth he wasn't going. The smartest, most supposedly badass guy in the multiverse was too cowardly to tell his daughter that he didn't agree with her.

    I remember when I wasn't embarased to admit I watch the show even though I'd still watch the next season.
    For me the most interesting thing about Pickle Rick it's that it's basically a middle finger to all the dumbass extreme fanboys of the show. It's like if the writers said: Ok, let's have a bet that at this point we could just come up with the most stupid and pointless idea for an episode and the fans will not only consume it but they will go crazy about it.

    No, you're wrong about pickle rick. It's not a great episode. At this point in the series, the whole Rick side of the story is tired and excessive, feeling more like they threw a bunch of old R&M concepts into a blender and stitched them together. Sure, it's still an alright episode, but it highlights one of S3's biggest problems - It feels forced, and when it feels forced it sounds preachy.

    From what I've seen the toxic fanboys hate the Pickle Rick episode because a) they thought it made Rick look incompetent and b) they didn't like the fact that he was dominated by a female character. Some people have hated the Pickle Rick episode (and even season three as a whole) because they think it gives toxic fanboys what they wanted, but if they actually understood how fanboys think then they would know that it did the exact opposite.

    Wow. You almost made it through an entire episode without using some kind of highly contested feminist or otherwise SJW-esque concept like Toxic Masculinity. But, at the same time, I'm glad someone's come out and said this. I know there are dozens of people who have already, but no matter how many times I hear someone tell these stupid, churlish dipshits that they aren't as smart as they think they are, and, even if they were, it wouldn't justify them being such assholes, I can't help but smile. I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I've broken down episodes and carefully examined them to ascertain their true meaning, but I can say that I'm glad someone is showing a lot of these fans where they missed the point. Even on a surface level I could see that Rick was being petty, and this whole misadventure of slaying rats and inventing a new body because he trapped himself into some kind of pickle form was very much supposed to be a punishment for Rick being such an awful person. That's a pretty surface-level reading of the situation. I'm not sure how so many people think the episode is about how awesome Rick is.

    I think anyone that watched the Pickle Rick Episode knows he turned himself into a pickle to be a coward and escape therapy. It's... spelled out even in the episode itself. I think some people just really like it because it's relatable. People love to escape therapy and often make themselves too busy to go, but Rick just turned himself into a pickle. Of all the ways he could reject going, this is how he did it. It's dumb and funny and Rick owns the fact that he turned himself into one like it's a thing of pride when it's apparent it's only an escape.

    The fun thing about Season3? Rick becomes human again in the worst possible way. Even the citadel of Ricks falls apart. Our favorite Rick gets deconstructed as well...
    Season1 establishes the world. Season2 shows him pretend to be a better member of his family. Season3, where Rick's triumph over the family dynamic gives him enough room to hang himself, properly deconstructs his character. He gets to come face to face with himself, but usually fails to grow from such.
    Im hoping that Season 4 gives Rick a chance to grow as a human being. Actually, sincerely, grow in the face of his family's cynisicm.

    I think MovieBob really ought to revisit this topic after watching Why You're Wrong About Rick and Morty's Toxic Fandom by uniquenameosaurus. That video debunks a lot of the contributing factors to this perception that there are all these awful fans everywhere.

    Honestly I'd never heard or cared much about this show, from what bob says I kind of want to watch it.

    Having encountered, in person, multiple fans this video discusses, I couldn't agree more with this video. Good job :)

    I just want to say that you're an incredibly smart, enlightened, and well rounded (intellectually) individual and after being a long time fan of zero punctuation, and finally checking out the big picture and I will escape to the movies I've become more of a Bob fan than a yahtzee fan. I went back and watched every single episode of the big picture i could find, all the way back to combat evolved (lol).
    Just posting so you know you're appreciated and have real fans out there. I'd pay to see more content from you to be frank. If it's within your means, I really hope you continue putting forth media in your style and with your thoughts and views behind it for years to come. Good luck Bob, and if things ever go south for you, feel free to reach out to a fellow geek/movie/critic/comic fan.

    The problem with this video is the premise: Bob understands why the majority of the fanboys like R&M and it is not in the way they are SUPPOSED to like it. It’s not much of a argument here. The show is great because it can appeal at different levels to a wide audience. It doesn’t make one viewpoint or interpretation better than the other... that’s why art is enjoyable- I can interpret it however the hell I want to. how pretentious do you have to be to tell someone they like something for the wrong reasons, but you like it for the right reasons? Good god.

    THANK YOU. Not only is Pickle Rick a failure, but he ends up meeting the only person in the series who isn't either awed or afraid of Rick's intellect, and it's a therapist - A WOMAN! - who specializes in people who literally eat shit, and she completely and utterly puts him in his place.

    But now you also should scratch yourself behind the ear because you are the one claiming to be "the one getting rick and morty€
