    That Carl's Jr ad was really long.
    It's interesting watching this episode of R&M more than once, because you pick up more details than before.
    The closest Shoney's is like nowhere near me.

    This is like the Endless Eight of American cartoons. One of those Ricks should just break the pattern.
    It would be amusing if one of these repeats left the f-bombs unbleeped, but I don't think Cartoon Network is the kind of channel to do that.

    Now this was unexpected, I mean...wow.

    It's almost insane the amount of secrecy this pulled off for a straight up season premiere right from under our noses as an April Fools prank. As for the episode itself, it was satisfying, and those bits on Rick's past..yeah he may say they're false memories but I ain't buying that there was something more to all that.

    Also Jerry's gone...hm, I wonder what the exact fallout of this is going to be.

    First airing revealed Attack On Titan Season 2 is coming this April. Second airing revealed Mike Tyson Mysteries Season 3 is coming this May. I wonder if every airing will reveal something.

    You know the most unbelievable thing about all this?

    Well played, Adult Swim. Well played. And what an epic (yet still hilarious) episode to come out of nowhere at that.

    TBH, This kinda came unexpected, i almost thought that Samurai Jack was airing, instead, we have this and i was unsure if it was the new episode until now.

    You know I kinda feel sorry for Jerry, the dude has a point in that Rick is an awful influence to everyone around them and keeps making life worse for them but the cosmos just chews on him for some reason.

    they believe that because they waited for over a decade, they have the right to take precedence

    That argument really doesn't hold much water when you consider that it's mid-season and not the beginning of the season, not to mention taking a week or two off is very much commonplace.

    If anything, the fact they waited so long ought to mean that an additional week would seem extremely miniscule by comparison.

    Exactly. I was wondering if Adult Swim would take a week off to let the season last longer. It'd make sense.
    As for the prank, I was wondering if April Fools shenanigans were going to happen on Toonami and them rerunning Season 3 Episode 1 was hilarious.

    I get being miffed but folks should remember what channel they're still on, and just be patient.

    Season 3 episode 1 was awesome/enjoyable/darker/intense, I'm glad to see the awesome show's third season premiering.

    Morty/Summer's parts were great.

    The Savage Smith Family were pretty cool/interesting, Savage Summer was so hot:D.

    The lawyer Morty clone was funny.

    Rick's crazy plan on letting himself get captured by the Galactic Federation was awesome/brilliant.

    Morty messing up Rick's plan with Summer at gunpoint was so funny.

    The Council of Ricks' satisfying defeats/deaths, they deserve it.

    Poor Beth/Jerry's divorce, Jerry wanted to protect his family.

    Rick's ulterior motive revealing, Rick is still more villainous/vile/despicable, but the best enjoyable villain protagonist.

    Rick's crazy ranting on their crazy adventures more darker and more seasons was hilarious, hahahahaha:p, I want the show to have more seasons.

    Cool seeing Tammy and nice seeing Bird Person's resurrection as Phoneix Person:D, awesome, they're great hero adversaries out to apprehend Rick.


    No Samurai Jack/Dragonball Super, I'll wait next Saturday, but the April Fool's prank on the marathon of Season 3 episode 1 made me laugh, hehehe.

    It's Cartoon Network. When do they not do this?

    The ending was pretty dark and sort of made Rick look evil. I feel like ultimately Morty will have to kill Rick to exorcise his life or something.

    This was the best 30 minutes of television I have EVER seen. This episode is could be torn apart for hours and hours to show the levels of genius in the writing AND planning. This is GOOD television. This is what makes the world A LITTLE BIT bearable!! ThankYou R&M and Thankyou AdultSwim!!! You should be very proud, this was the best thing airing on the entire PLANET EARTH. You managed to do it AGAIN. Well done.
