genius level comedy. the nuance. the prestige.
I don't know what is worse, these jokes or rick and morty supremacists?
@taterade, both? Both, both is good!
@taterade, I didn't even know people did that, then again I really underestimate people I guess. Either that or there's just too many "999 jokes you missed in the first second of episode 1" youtube videos
@taterade, as a Rick and morty lover, I agree completely
@timofborg, ah, Road to El Dorado. Good movie.
@taterade, I’m starting to not like the show because of these people!
@celtics313131, don't let other people influence your opinion of media. Form your own opinions and thoughts.
@celtics313131, enjoy the show for the show, not for its fans.
I personally love Rick and Morty, and while I am more intelligent than most people I meet, an adult cartoon has absolutely nothing to do with that.
Besides, intelligence is vastly overrated. I look at it as just another trait, like strength, perception, endurance, charisma, agility, or luck.
What makes you S.P.E.C.I.A.L.?
@I Are Lebo, that might be the most casually arrogant thing I've ever heard haha 😆
@I Are Lebo, my helmet
@TR8R, perhaps, but I genuinely don't mean it that way. When I say that I'm smarter than most people I've met, I'm not bragging. I'm criticizing most people for being stupid, not patting myself on the back for being smart.
@I Are Lebo, in a way that speaks more for the people you've met then about you as an individual. But I can relate in a way, I seem to exclusively meet really really dumb people IRL
@TR8R, it sounds like arrogance with extra steps
@awkrap, it would be if I considered myself superior for having greater intelligence. I do not. I seriously think that intelligence is overrated.
There seems to be a direct inverse correlation between intelligence and happiness. Nearly all of the people I know (or know of) smarter than me are miserable people, and all of the holiest people I know are very unintelligent.
I see a difference between being unintelligent and being a moron. A moron acts without thinking, doing stupid things without ever realizing why things don't work out for them. An unintelligent person can do intelligent things, it just takes them longer.
On top of that, wisdom and intelligence aren't the same thing. Common sense is something many geniuses lack.
@awkrap, I giggled at this
If you want to prove that your show is smart, then please stop yelling about the episode where the only joke for the entire duration is that they’ve inserted the word “pickle” instead of “man”.
@YUNoJump, But they wouldn’t say “I’M MAN RIIIICK!!!” But yeah the pickle thing isn’t our brightest moment
@YUNoJump, My men call you Solenya.
@YUNoJump, I’m Tiny Rick!!!!
Was that better? 😋
Also - are people genuinely claiming that there’s actual science in this show? I really enjoy watching it, but it’s a cartoon about a drunk, abusive old guy and his retarded sidekick. You don’t have to be a genius to watch it. 😕
@Nellybert , the only real science that the show is based on is the theory of infinite universes, and you don’t even need to understand the science of that to understand the show, you just need to comprehend the idea of it. Other than that, the occasional science shows up, but isn’t ever the centre point of the episode. People like to think they’re super smart I guess.
@YUNoJump, Wait, you mean that the formula that he wrote to trick the scammers wasn’t actually the real code for a brain swapping computer virus?!?!? This show has lied to me!!!!
Rick and Morty is great. It's arguably one of the best comedy shows to have aired in the last few years. The humor is good, sometimes subtle, sometimes intelligent.
You are not a genius for enjoying the show, and it does not require higher than average intelligence to enjoy. Just because the humor is more sciencey than your average sitcom, it isn't a masterpiece that requires you to be a genius to enjoy it.
Just remember that neither of the creators of this show are geniuses with a PhD or even a bachelor's in a STEM field. They make up science-sounding mumbo jumbo and are usually drunk af. Roiland is a decent guy, but Harmon went on a nutjob rant about how 29% of Americans are Nazis and should be killed. You may as well be claiming the big bang theory is the most intelligent sitcom ever produced. They're not the second coming of Socrates or Nietzsche - they're entertainers, and one is clearly off his meds.
@Kangaroo Jacked, Dan Harmon is a fücking lunatic.
I like this
I went to high school with this man. We famous boys
Rick and Morty really isn't a particularly intelligent show. People who think that are generally idiots.
Is this an r/iamverysmart Kind of thing?
Has anyone seen brickleberry? I just started it and its freakin' amazing.
