    Well, season 3 started tonight, so here's a rushed talkback thread!

    EDIT: Updated with episode info.

    S3E1: The Rickshank Redemption

    Synopsis: During Rick's incarceration, the Federation has colonized Earth. Summer, determined to rescue Rick, digs up the alternate Rick's corpse in their backyard and retrieves his portal gun. Morty attempts to demonize Rick by transporting himself and Summer to universe C-137, which became a Cronenberg World since the events of "Rick Potion #9." The two were saved from Morty's original family by the Seal Team Ricks, who send them to the Council of Ricks before proceeding to assassinate Rick upon learning that he is Federation custody to prevent him from revealing their secrets. At the same time, tricking the Federation into believing they would his interdimensional travel formula, Rick managed to hack into their technology to switch bodies with his captors before Seal Team Rick arrives. This forces Rick to improvise by transferring himself into one of the Seal Ricks and kill the others before going to the Citadel of Ricks. Once transferred into a Rick with higher rank, Rick manages to transport the Citadel in the same space as the Federation prison, prompting a massive battle. Rick uses the confusion to access the Federation mainframe—revealed to be his reason for turning himself in—and destroys the Federation's economy. The Federation falls into chaos as a result, and leaves Earth. Rick returns to the Smith household, but Jerry issues Beth an ultimatum: choose him or Rick. Beth announces she is leaving Jerry. The status quo restored, Rick reveals to Morty his ulterior motive was to make both the Federation and Jerry "go away," making him Morty's de facto male influence. This devolves into Rick going on nonsensical angry rant about their adventures about to get darker than before and getting himself some McDonald's Szechuan sauce.

    In case you somehow missed it this Saturday (really, you had 8 chances to watch it), enjoy the episode every night this week at 10PM! The rest of season 3 will premiere in the Summer.

    Heh heh heh, I learned about this whole hanging out with my friends. They're big Rick and Morty fans and we all watched this on Adult Swim's website. We couldn't believe it!

    Best anti-prank I've seen!

    I was going to play along with the "joke" here, but then I read a comment on another website about this, and I checked what was trending on Twitter....sure enough, "Rick & Morty" is in the top ten.

    It won't be 9 PM here for another two hours....I sure hope this isn't one of those REALLY elaborate pranks.

    Nah, this is legit. The first episode of season three is airing on repeat on Adult Swim's live stream site as of this post.

    All I can say is..this is the most devious April Fool's prank/non-prank that could ever be pulled.

    I'm happy we got a new episode of Rick and Morty, but I really don't think they had to preempt SJ and DBS (unless this is part of some long-term scheduling thing)

    I don't think Toonami is getting pre-empted. Their Facebook page tells me Samurai Jack will be on tonight.

    The whole block isn't getting pre-empted, but DeMarco confirmed that Dragon Ball Super and Samurai Jack won't be playing tonight.

    ...I stand corrected.

    Oh well. I DVR'd the last two, so this will allow me to rewatch them.

    So begins the dark season. Well I don't mind Jerry going bye bye, he kind of gets my nerves some times. So I am with Rick here.

    It's good to see the season premiere of Rick and Morty.
    Sure does suck about not seeing new episode of Samurai Jack though.
