Joe Matar Aug 21, 2017

Rick And Morty season 3 delivers yet another winning episode in The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy. Spoilers...

3.5 The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy

I certainly didn’t expect two truly brilliant Rick And Morty episodes in succession and, furthermore, that The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy might even be better than Vindicators 3: The Return Of Worldender, but here we are.

Both episodes have razor-sharp, laugh-out-loud jokes throughout. Where Whirly Dirly has an edge over Worldender is that it takes the characters in completely new directions. With Community, Dan Harmon made a point of having a cast of characters who would be successfully entertaining, no matter how they were paired off, »

Culture Dump #4: How to use ‘Rick and Morty’ quotes in conversation

17 August 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Rick and Morty may have only been around for a few years but it’s already firmly established itself in today’s pop culture lexicon. You can thank Netflix for that. With just two seasons under its belt and a long-awaited third currently being drip-fed to audiences, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s bizarro space comedy has so far churned out loads of quotable lines, a good indicator for any cult-show in the making. With that in mind, here’s a few of the best and a handy guide on how you can successfully utilize them in everyday conversation…

“Tiny Rick!”

Where’s It From?

Season two’s Big Trouble in Little Sanchez saw Rick transport his brain into a high school version of himself, instantly becoming the coolest kid in town. Pretty soon though, his de-aged self turns into a minuscule threat.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 4 Review – ‘Vindicators 3: The Return of the Worldender’

14 August 2017 2:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe reviews the fourth episode of Rick and Morty season three, Vindicators 3: Return of the Worldender…

Ever since Rick and Morty returned to our screens two weeks ago, the show has been very heavy on pop culture parodies. The first episode Rickmancing the Stone was a parody of the Mad Max franchise and the post apocalypse sub-genre in general, while last week’s episode Pickle Rick was a parody of today’s action movies, particularly The Raid and John Wick. This week it was the turn of the superhero genre in Vindicators 3: The Return of the Worldender.

The episode began with a nice throwback to Season One – Morty cashing in his coupon to choose one in every ten adventures for the duo, opting to answer a literal call to adventure from The Vindicators, a group of intergalactic superheroes.

‘Rick and Morty’s’ First Female Writers Speak Out: ‘Resisting the Change Will Make Things Worse’

11 August 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, “Rick and Morty” is the zany sci-fi family comedy that keeps on surprising. Cycling through multiple timelines, alien life forms, and human insecurities with a maniacal glee, the animated series flew under the radar at first, with Harmon’s eccentricities caused fans to wait a years in between seasons. Now, “Rick and Morty” is back in full swing, and better than ever. That’s largely due to some fresh blood in the writers room —  now fifty percent female, not counting the showrunners.

“That’s just incredibly rare, unfortunately,” Jessica Gao told The Hollywood Reporter. “More often than not, I’m the only woman in the room or the only person of color — or I’m both. So, having a balanced room just makes things a lot easier for women in the sense that you feel you can pitch things and someone else will understand you. »

Meet the Women Behind 'Rick and Morty's' Third Season

11 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Adult Swim's animated hit Rick and Morty has returned for its third season with one major change to its writers room: female voices.

Creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, who debuted the sci-fi cartoon in 2013 on the overnight cable network, decided to shake up their show's dynamic by adding four new female writers to their staff. The move created a 50-50 male-female split. Harmon made a similar decision on his last show, Community, in 2011 for the NBC sitcom's third season. 

The four newcomers — Jane Becker, Erica Rosbe, Sarah Carbiener and Jessica Gao — were given an intimidating »

Rick and Morty: The Top Ten Supporting Characters

11 August 2017 4:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe takes a look at the best supporting characters in Rick and Morty… 

Rick and Morty is awesome, we can all agree on that. What might not be so easy to agree on, though, is who is the best supporting character in the show. Over the last two and a bit seasons Rick and Morty have given us a hilarious array of characters from all corners of the galaxy and narrowing them to even 10 has been an extremely difficult task.

With season 3 back on our screens, the show has already debuted many memorable new characters but for now, let’s take a look at 10 of the show’s best-supporting characters from Rick and Morty’s first two seasons.

10: Krombopulous Michael

Intergalactic assassin for hire, and an all around nice guy, Krombopulous Michael makes his one and only appearance in Rick and Morty in the season 2 episode ‘Mortynight Run. »

NBCUniversal’s Seeso Platform Will Shut Down Before The End Of The Year

9 August 2017 2:42 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

2016 brought a boom of subscription video services to consumers, and now, one of those platforms has announced that it will be the first casualty of that competitive market. Seeso, launched in January 2016 by NBCUniversal, revealed on Facebook that it will shut down before the end of the year.

Seeso, aimed at comedy fans, made a strong pitch to potential subscribers. It boasted an attractive price tag ($3.99 per month), access to the back catalogs of NBC shows like Saturday Night Live, and original programming from the likes of Dan Harmon, Cyanide & Happiness, and Paramount Digital.

As time wore on, however, it became clear that Seeso wasn't catching on. In May 2017, the platform indicated it would move away from original programming. A month later, it announced a wave of layoffs. Now, its demise has become official. "We’re writing to let you know that later this year, Seeso will be shutting its comedy doors, »

7 August 2017 5:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As Seeso further winds down operations, insiders have confirmed that upcoming comedy “There’s…Johnny!” won’t launch at the end of the month as originally planned.

“There’s… Johnny!” was originally set to debut on August 24, but according to insiders close to the show, producers are now looking to find a new home for the period comedy, set in the world of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” circa 1972.

The decision at Seeso to shelve “There’s… Johnny!” comes after other shows also haven’t premiered as planned, including Season 2 of Dan Harmon’s “HarmonQuest,” which was supposed to return at the end of July.

Watch: ‘Rick and Morty’ Creators Reveal the Origins of Pickle Rick in Featurette

Rick and Morty is one of the greatest shows on television right now, and for evidence one need look no further than Pickle Rick. Indeed, the third episode of the Adult Swim series’ third season, “Pickle Rick,” made good on the promise from the trailers that Rick turns himself into a pickle and goes on a rat-murdering rampage. This episode was actually first teased in a video last year that showed off some storyboards of the rat-killing sequence, but now a new video has been released online that has creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, as well as … »

3.3 Pickle Rick 

Everything’s been leading up to this. It’s the reason we first emerged from the primordial ooze to walk upright. The trajectory of the human race has been forever leading, inexorably, to this moment, our denouement: the “Pickle Rick” episode of Rick And Morty.

And was it worth the wait? How did it turn out? Well, quite good, though it went more Die Hard than I expected.

Not that that’s a bad thing; if you’re going to do an episode in the style of an action movie, there are few better films to emulate. It’s just, if you’ve followed Dan Harmon and his career to this point, you »

Game Grumps Offers Preview For ‘Good Game’ Ahead Of August 30 Premiere On YouTube Red

4 August 2017 9:50 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Two of the most popular creators on YouTube are ready to get their game on. Game Grumps, the channel hosted by wisecracking players Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan, has shared the trailer for its upcoming series Good Game, which will arrive for YouTube Red subscribers on August 30.

In Good Game, Hanson and Avidan will portray a pair of couch potatoes who decide to take charge of their lives by participating in a fictional e-sports tournament called "Blood Match." In order to vie for the title, they must first cobble together a team of misfits who can match the skills of the competition's robotic, precise favorites. The conceit sounds a lot like Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, but with a modern day twist that could attract viewers from one of the entertainment industry's most passionate communities. Comedy nerds will also dig the presence of Community and Rick & Morty's Dan Harmon, who »

It’s been quite awhile since the smash hit adult cartoon Rick and Morty has been on the air, but after hard work and tons of preparation, the Adult Swim comedy has officially returned for its third season. The wait has been long and fans have been longing for the show’s return, but creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland would rather take their time to create a clever and satisfying product than pump out something unfinished to fit a certain release date. “Rickmancing the Stone,” has it feeling like Rick and Morty has never left television, wasting no time to pick up where
