    The Rick and Morty is back! The season premiere, "Edge of ToMorty: Rick Die Rickpeat", left me with so many theory ideas and I couldn't wait! This episode showed us a side of Rick and Morty we haven't seen before and I LOVED it! In fact, I think that there was a life lesson hidden somewhere in all the jokes and violence. What was that lesson? What did Rick mean at the end of the episode? I'm here to explain it all to you!

    So glad to see so many of you liked this more "laid back" style. It helped us get the episode out same week, rather than weeks later after all this was relevant!
    That said, seeing a lot of comments about the green screen, lighting, and background, so quick note: I had to film while traveling, meaning stuff was a bit rougher than it normally would be. Shouldn't be a problem in the future!

      The Film Theorists it reminds me of the old vids, comforting really when everyone’s trying to change due to Clip-Share’s algorithms and stuff

    Have you guys noticed, ever since Roni died, the style has changed? Both Film and Game. We see more of MatPat now, and the casual discussion and sit downs are more common instead of animation. This isn't an issue, just something I noticed for a while.

    Honestly? And I'm trying to be as constructive here as possible, I absolutely hated the new format. It really felt like the opposite of laid back. It also removed many manic elements from your editing style that viewers have come to love, or even watch your channel because of. It was like watching interdimensional cable and this was your channel in another dimension, but it wasn't good, and you were in it too much. That's a nope from me. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    this guy just talks without any value in what he's saying. because he doesn't give any arguments that really makes sense. he talks about his ideas and what they mean, but he doesn't tell us why it relates to rick and morty episode 1.

  • Ultroman the Tacoman

    I love this calmer format a lot, even though we see much more of your unfathomably handsome face instead of your photoshopped reaction-faces, but I can handle a little more insecurity.
