Um hi, just wanted to let you know there /was/ an uproar about that scene a long while back on Reddit where one of the writers (Ryan Ridley) made an explanation about the scene, but even at that people still found it was offensive. You're not alone. However, if it bothers you then I hate to say it's something the writers don't seem to care about, and for your own mental health and safety you may not want to stick around for season 2. Your mental health > a TV show.

Hi anon! Thanks so much for the polite and informed response! As I do not frequent Reddit, I was not aware that there was a reaction. Most of the episode are more or less adult material borderline, I was just very caught off guard by that episode in particular and the lack of any warning or consideration. I will definitely tread with caution with my viewing, but I do wish there was more pre-episode content warning! Grrr! Inconsiderate writing!

Most shows on most networks don’t have a warning for specific things that may offend people. They just have the rating and the letters for somewhat specifics (the “S” always covering most forms of sexual content) and the “some content may be unsuitable. viewer discretion is advised” type of warning which doesn’t go into specifics. The one time Cartoon Network did do a specific warning was with a Naruto episode where a character pulled out his beating heart (which was odd since there was no blood and the scene wasn’t much different than other shows which did similar scenes in a more comedic fashion). And obviously, Adult Swim wouldn’t put up such a warning.

I guess the issue with specific pre-episode content warnings is where do you draw the line of what deserves more than just the general warning. Sexual assault is something some folks may find in poor taste or otherwise won’t be able to watch for various reasons (especially with shows that make black comedy from it), but it isn’t the only thing of this nature,

What appears to be the Breaking Bad parody episode.

In a future episode, Granddad learns he’s broke.

"I’d say you have six months before you and your grandkids are homeless and starving," his financial planner informs him, then, pondering what funds Granddad might generate, inquires, "How many kidneys do you have?"

Huey’s chemistry project (which in fact is an effort to make an explosive material for building bombs) turns out to be the goldmine Granddad has dreamed of: This pink goop turns out to be the world’s best hair-wave cream. It doesn’t just straighten existing hair, it’s mega-Rogaine, growing beautifully lustrous straight hair overnight.

There’s just one hitch, as Huey is quick to warn Granddad: With a single spark, the stuff explodes on your head.

Will this stop Granddad from cashing in on his miracle product — or getting tangled up in the dangerous black market of the hair-care industry?

…….

Too bad we are starting the season with a Tom Dubois marriage episode.

Guys. We are adults watching an adult show made for adults on an adult program block. We know that right?

So why the heck are people making captioned images and gifs while censoring the expletives? Is this really how you show love for a show that takes PRIDE in its vulgarity?

Holy crap I just realized something.

When the evil robot Rick said “Ricks don’t care about Mortys” it wasn’t Rick talking it was Evil!Morty controlling him.

Obviously we know C-137 Rick cares about his Morty (whether that be our Morty or not).

That means something happened to Evil!Morty to make him think his Rick didn’t care about him.

I don’t know how this fits in with my cyborg Evil!Morty theory but it will. I’ll think of something.

He wasn’t a robot. It’s a Rick being mind controlled

So in Something Ricked this Way Comes, wasnt Summer cursed from using the monkeys paw? I hardly doubt this is a lack of continuity. I wonder what is was, and perhaps if it got removed by Rick later on…hmmm

The curse was that after using it to save the devil, he turned around and used her, then threw her away once he had no more use for her.

I love Rick and Morty but

graphitetroll:

  1. what is with this OBSESSION with rape and sexual assault??? 
  2. Can we get ONE PoC that’s not an antagonist of some sort? Like do PoC make the creators of this really show insecure or??? like what’s the reason
  3. more Summer and Rick and Morty hanging out

1. In 11 episodes, we got 3 episodes with a character getting almost raped. I wouldn’t call that obsessive.

2. We got that already. Jacob (the lover of Jerry’s mom). He’s a nice guy and both Jerry’s mom and dad love him. And Brad isn’t really an antagonist. He’s an obstacle to Morty’s attempts with Jessica due to going out with her and a jerk jock, but he’s not actively antagonizing Morty or any Smith/Sanchez. Plus, shouldn’t Morty just back off since Jessica is taken?

3. Now this I can agree on.

This can be applied to alot of subjects.

But moving on, next week appears to be an alternate artstyle episode. We already have Starfire’s dream style here. Wonder what the other Titans will dream.

New seaons of Boondocks coming next week so I must inform the populace that Huey is best Tsundere

Makes me sad that Huey hardly interacts with Jazmine anymore. And that Huey hardly does anything beyond be the passive voice of reason.

The word you are looking for is different. TTG isn’t trying to be the old TT.
And I’m sure the cast would just say they enjoy working on both shows for their own unique reasons. Like how Scott Menville gets to be a silly Robin instead of constant seriousness every episode Or Tara Strong gets more opportunities to do more with Raven beyond deadpan.snarker
