I've been trying to get into Rick and Morty after rave reviews but really struggling. I'm 5 episodes in and there just aren't really many jokes in the show. I don't mean failed attempts at humor, more just a lack of actual jokes. The animation is also very bad and off putting (like most modern animations). I just don't see what I'm missing here. It's not good.

I’m the same. Tried a few times, and even the Pickle Rick ep. But I just can’t stand the character of Rick and probably all the rave reviews have hindered my judgement too.

I feel like Rick & Morty started well, but it's not helped by the fans who see the obviously flawed characters as role models, and that whole nonsense about the szechuan sauce.

Rick and Morty is fine, Rick and Morty fans are awful.

 

It's not even the funniest cartoon of recent years - Adventure Time is much better than it, as is Archer.

Been enjoying Staged on iPlayer this week, Michael Sheen is having good fun playing a version of himself, and episode 3 has a good and unexpected guest star.

I think I’ve done It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia from start to finish four times during this COVID shitshow. Mainly in the background whilst I’m working but despite the multiple views, every couple of episodes something will come up where I snort at best but usually completely lose it. Frank Reynolds is possibly the best sitcom character of all time. Charlie's not far behind.

Partridge aside, it’s the most rewatchable show ever.

Probably posted about this somewhere already but fuck it..

Finally watched Westworld season 3. S2 was such a disappointing struggle after I absolutely loved the first season, so I went in very cautiously with this. I didn't watch week on week, and deliberately left it to watch away from the weekly criticism etc.

I must admit I enjoyed it. Did it make much sense? Debatable. But I can't argue against how good the cast are. Thandie Newton in particular is fucking dynamite and I'd watch a series just of her.

I'm not convinced they know what they're doing or where they're going but I definitely enjoyed it a lot more this time. The shorter season helped too.

I enjoyed the first few episodes as much as I’ve enjoyed Westworld since the start of season 1, but it lost me by the end and I don’t have a clue what happened in the last couple of episodes. I used to listen to a Westworld theories podcast that explained things to me but they’ve stopped doing that so I remain baffled.

Yeah it definitely started off stronger than it finished. I couldn't tell you what all that stuff at the end was if you asked me. I think I just went in looking to enjoy what I could - especially the performances - but it definitely doesn't make much sense if you overthink it.

It was so good up until the back quarter or the series. Even then there was enough to sell me on another season and it’s a miracle they rebuilt the lost faith after season 2 but some of those action sequences in the good episodes were to notch.

Kind of hope they wrap it up next series but I’m sure they’ll want 5.
