WHADDUP MY GLIP GLOPS!

After watching Rorey play Rick n Morty Vr on UPF, Brad seemed kind of interested in the ideas that the show has to offer. I feel like we should recommend a good starter episode for Brad, something that might coincide with Brad's interests (at least the ones we think he has).

I like to recommend "Total Rickall", since I love the concept behind the episode, along with the guest voices like Keith David (MASS EFFECT ANYONE!?) and Tara Strong. So, what episode would you like to recommend?

Definitely the alien TV episodes and the one where John Oliver is a tour guide inside a homeless guy, but really... he should watch it all.

I like "A Rickle in Time" a lot. It's funny seeing the timeline split up.

There are not many times in my life when I've laughed harder than watching that. Holy hell. But yeah, he should just watch it all. I mean it's not like there's a whole lot to watch anyway.

Oh and as someone who was kinda put-off in the beginning: stick with it and it'll grow on you.

Rick and Morty definitely doesn't sound like a Brad type of show. I like it but man I can't imagine Brad getting into it somehow. Maybe I'm completely wrong but that's my hunch. I think during UPF he was just showing his usual "I need to check that out" curiosity that rarely ever moves beyond the theoretical planning stage.

The one where the dog's become sentient and take over the world, or all of season 2. Also the rest of season 1.

Literally any episode after they tone down Rick's belching. Any time I see someone put off by that show, it's because they hated the constant burping in the first couple of episodes.

But yeah, Rixty Minutes is the go-to. Anyone who doesn't laugh until they cry at Baby Legs is somebody I don't want to know, thank you very much.

Yeah the belching was off putting for me at first too but there are a lot of properly hilarious episodes in there.

Mortynight Run is a pretty good one - the VR game "Roy" is pretty fantastic, the daycare for Jerry's etc.

I would recommend Rick Potion #9! The ending was top R+M moment for me.

The alien TV episodes are an acquired taste and that's saying it lightly. Maybe it's different for native English speakers, some hidden level of humor I'm not privy to, I don't know. To me it's just really sub-par improv, especially when Roiland proved he can do much better in several episodes of the Grandma's Virginity Podcast.

For me the standout episodes would be, in chronological order:

  • Lawnmower Dog
  • Meeseeks and Destroy
  • Mortynight Run
  • Total Rickall
  • The Ricks Must be Crazy

Of course, it would be better to just make Brad watch them all in order. An outright bad R&M episode hasn't aired yet.

Sure, some episodes are better than others, but I don't see why he shouldn't just watch the series from the beginning.

He should just start with the pilot, with the understanding that the amount of burp talking in that episode is in no way representative of the rest of the show. I'm not sure that the humor in that show is going to resonate with him, but the high-concept sci-fi will probably get its hooks into him and pull him through the first season.

My advice is that if you don't laugh at anything from the first two shows, then the show is not for you. I love it, but there are enough friends of mine who don't like it that I understand that it's not for everyone.

I try to give a series 4 episodes before I make judgment on it. I gotta say, it's definitely not for everyone.
