God except first 5 episodes werent very good
Intelligent, dark, and wicked funny. Rick and Morty Season 4 reminds us why we love the show.
A real let down in terms of writing/character and tone.
The Characters of Rick, Morty, Beth , Summer and Even Jerry are not really recognizable anymore, they all deliver snappy "witty" dialog even when it would be out of character, nor do they behave or react to each other in a realistic way when compared to season 1 and 2.
Many plotlines and story elements are completely taken from other shows, and used to fill an episode, Paying homage ,and using a concept are fine. But there should be an original spin attached to it, and I dont just mean, make the characters snakes or aliens.
I dont feel like Rick and Morty is trying to tell a story or develop characters anymore, nor is it really "parodying" anything, its just beat for beat copying some movies, inserting some 4th wall breaking and topical termonologies (that will instantly be dated)
The real tragety is that they have a good budget, but that doenst matter when you cant relate to whats happening on the screen. Why should I care about any of the main characters, when they change there behaviour every episode?
The Absence of Tone: 9/11 ,Pearl harbour. Not even remotely the same event they get thrown out there without any build up or payoff aside from being able to say 9/11. Is this Marketing? or did the writers really have something to say?
Rick and Morty is Sinking, not too surprising considering how little control authors have over their media in the TV world, once you get a group of writers in trying to emulate each other you are just getting an immetation product. Then the next cycle will be a copy of a copy.
Definitely the worst season by far. The acid vat episode was up to its standard, but the rest just weren't very good. They seem to be relying more on potty humor and vulgarities. The toilet episode was just plain stupid and the rest were confusing and just tried to hard to be clever,
Rick and Morty season 4 is as funny as previous seasons - but perhaps not as fresh.
Plenty of people saying it was a bad series but giving it 4 or 5, doesn't make sense too me, Rattlestar Galactica was a fantastic episode up there with some of the best, the rest was a different show and unfunny. Then again the ones who's are prepares to criticise are deemed too stupid to get the jokes. Dragon episode and never ricking Morty was nonsense from start to finish, too many people kidding themselves that the show cant have an off day, or season as the case maybe, I get the feeling Rattlestar was left over from previous series. More Rick and Morty less we are smarter than you.
Weakest season of all 4, would re-watch maybe first 3 episodes+snake. It simply started drifting too far off-road with perverted dragon-slut topics, overcomplicated nested-reality moments, unnecessary violence/gore and excessive humiliation of Jerry being a weak and "stupid" father as opposed to her alpha horse-surgeon wife - great message! Got a limit where you start caring about how ethical your messages are aside from "JuSt FoR eDgY LuLz"?
It can be expected that things can go sideways after a rapid success and a contract for 70+ episodes, but that's just too soon and low - is "sell out" the right term here?
The meaningless gap in the middle of the season is also demotivating.
To prove the point here are ratings/stats from wiki per each season(in mln of people watching on avg per episode of that season):
1st - 1.57, 2nd - 1.97, 3rd - 2.33, 4th - 1.52
views with 4th season are the lowest and that's during covid-19 lockdown when people aren't going out and are at home.
Same with the numbers on this website(quoting only ratings posted by audience here because the show is nothing w/out real views):
97%, 98%, 95%, 83%
A short season that's really solid. There's a few slumps, but overall it's a very good time.
Unfortunatedly, we came from a previous 3 seasons of GREAT episodes, mostly. This one... it falls flat. At some point Rick said "let's keep it fresh" (or was it Morty, that is how forgettable it was). Sadly, they did not achieved it. It reeks of stale. They did an entire nonsensical episode of metaplot, so maybe it is the writer's way of saying "we have nothing more under our belts" - something like an invisibility belt of sorts, gee. I'm saddened to see this come to one of my favourite series.
I will say, tho, i'm willing to see the next Season -if there is one- for old time's sake. But that sentence, if you writers are worth your salt, is a terryfing one.
Please wake up to your previous selves, they were great. The current version of you feel like clones (oh wait i'm fucking clever /Irony) who follow step by step the spectators popularity polls: give them more bus, they love bugs.
Please. Be Bojack Horseman. Don't be Game of Thrones.
worst season.. yet.. it didnt feel like the same series from the past 3 seasons .. stupid jokes episdes with not the same vibe of previous seasons .. morty had literally not much to do his only episode "vat of acid" was just the same thing that the game "roy" from blipz and chips.... rick the ultimate badass from previous seasons is gone he got his ass kicked by everyone... it just seems off... not the same series at all
