It’s been two years since Rick and Morty season two premiered and tonight the show finally returns for its third season. Are you ready to get riggity riggity wrecked?
You might remember that I F-ing love this show. In a post-Peep Show world where both Archer and It’s Always Sunny are winding down, I wasn’t sure I’d ever laugh that hard again. But then one lazy Sunday afternoon my girlfriend and I decided to watch TV and after stumbling through the Hulu sliders eventually happened upon Rick and Morty.
It hadn’t even occurred to me that the show’s best episodes might be behind it until Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland unleashed a taste of season three on April Fools’ day. But it did not disappoint.
I’ve been trying not to drool over all the behind-the-scenes stuff and short clips that came out of SDCC so instead I thought we could take this time to reminisce about our favorite moments so far in the show’s run and any pet theories we have about past Easter Eggs or where season three is headed.
So what’s mine? Well the show has so many great comedic moments, expertly balancing comedy with tragedy on the edge of a knife and the Butter Bot has got to be one of the best examples.
And of course the ballad of Ice-T is a close second.
