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!

Hey matpat my gf and I are huge fans of Rick and Morty and in both the new episodes we've seen at least one glitch throughout the show, maybe it's something, maybe it's not and our cable is just messed up, but it'd be really cool to see if it turns out to be something crazy like you did with the fortnite theories a while back

This episode did confirm the theory that Meeseeks are actually converted Mortys. He said it a couple times. "Yadda yadda, I seek death."

I was irritated the whole time because matpat was standing in front of a green screen and he was darker than the surroundings were I like that style but as for me matpat has to be phisically in that room You weren't even using that green screen effect too often so why even bother

Inaccurately talks about Objectivism through the terms of Egoism... ...then uses Ethical Egoism to accurately describe Objectivism... Then inaccurately sums up Ethical Egoism.

I think I speak for a huge amount of your viewers if I say that I would prefer some random background instead of this green screen you have, the bright room with the dark person doesn't fit at all.... Even if it's just you sitting on you desk with some r&m on the computer screen in the background or on your sofa.......

MY OPINION ON THIS TYPE OF STYLE OF VIDEO: hi mat I’m a big fan of your videos and always will be wetter I like it or not haha but if you see this message I’d have to say this style was actually more interesting to watch like don’t get me wrong I loved the edits you’d usually do but you speaking to the camera was really entertaining to watch and felt like you were talking more to me the audience compared to me listening with edits. I liked it and it was really well done so I’m not saying all videos in the future should be like this but it should be a bit of both cause this style was as good as your other ones and different but in a good way. Keep making videos btw! I’ll be watching and learning

The lesson in that episode is that bread should be toasted if and only when you have pickles in your pocket.

I like the laid back style, but in the past I stayed for the full 20 minutes BECAUSE of the high pace style. Then again, I guess I just learned not to live in the past, so knock yourself out

I really like the new video style. Although I think the green screen job needs a little more tuning especially in the A-roll.

Also, talking about W. A. S. P. s figuring out things the old school style, that's a very cool meta joke.
