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 RUvid’s algorithms and stuff

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.

I can't wait for green screen tech to be so good that you couldn't tell when you use it in front of a photo of your old set lol. I loved the video though :)

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.

Good Job guys!! This is pretty legit!!!

Biggest problem in humanity is our lack of the ability to work or aim towards goals bigger than our own selfish interests

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.

That's Utilitarianism, move towards a goal by any means necessary even if the methods are vague and the goals unrealistic and utopian.Also known as Communism or Socialism. Moral absolutism states that the same rules must apply to all moral agents. If you want to have a rule that others do not steal your things, you must accept that you cannot initiate theft from others. You cannot steal what is willingly given.

I know the voice and the face. But seeing you saying "Welcome to Film Theory" in person is weird, weird cool. Like watching the watchmojo lady talking. Also MatPat, PLEASE DO A THEORY ON WATCHMEN SERIES!

You could just have said "they turned into a politician or a CEO". Next time someone gets a job like that throw them in prison right away, saves you a lot of trouble.
