Renewed for Season 3!

I hadn't realized it was renewed for S2 even before it premiered, so this definitely shows that it must be doing great numbers for Hulu.

Only the first half sadly so All4 is still the best place for them, until they expire.

animated shows take a looong time to make, so it's not uncommon for networks to automatically renew a cartoon they think is going to do well for a second season so work can begin on it before the first season is even finished airing. Looks like that was a smart bet with solar opposites, looking forward to at least 2 more seasons of this nonsense.

I'm looking forward to hearing people say it's incredibly improved over the first season, and then still ignoring it until I have three seasons to watch all at once when I'm in my mid-30's

Solar Opposites is good because although the main alien hates earth, unlike Rick, he eventually will see the cool part of whatever was previously stupid, so everything isn't auto-infected with a sense of overwhelming negativity

Rick would build a manc ave, but he'd be complaining the whole time, and sometimes you just can enjoy the infections optimism instead yknow

I watched solar when it came out, only few things I remember. The wall went the way I thought it was and their cloud-atlas style talking was getting old. Earthlings do not respect old people, I like old people so much I gently caress them. That was pretty funny.
But I called this show four roger the aliens. They dont even have a klaus. Maybe the show will get better with more seasons but what episode was the best if was to rewatch one?

I like solar opposite, but let's not kid ourselves none of the aliens come close to being as good as Roger.

I get what you're saying though, the four main characters have a tendency to get kind of samey in their personalities and goals. I kind of wish P.A.T.R.I.C.I.A. was part of the main cast and not just a one off gag, she added something interesting to the group dynamic (and her design when she was in kill mode was great).

I know what you mean. They all operate with the same sense of impunity. They randomly care about some things, but they all seem to know they will not actually face consequences because they've got magic tech in their back pockets that can get them out of anything.

I was too young to get that show when it was on air, though I liked watching the intro.

I do remember the episode where they don't remember their national anthem at all.

Netflix UK only has the front half of season 4. Source: I am in the UK and looking at the Netflix page for season 4.

Outside the US isn't one big Netflix availability zone, it varies from country to country.

Since San Diego Comic-Con is entirely virtual this year, [Adult Swim] is doing their panels livestreamed.

Rick and Morty's panel is this Friday at 8PM EST / 5PM PST. The panel was always a lot of fun and hilarious in past years, probably second only to Archer's.

Crossover stuff with R&M is best avoided, but I do like that one comic where Stanford Pines is friends with Rick, who shows him an alt universe where he didn't end up seperated from his brother, and also the idea that Rick thinks Zim is adorable.

So I play Merge Dragons as a game to just kill time since it's simple and combining things to make new things is a mentally calming thing to do, and they have events every few weeks. Last week it was a Rick & Morty-based event and a discord I'm in for Merge Dragons was talking about how they didn't really know what Rick & Morty was about.

This being a dragon-themed game, they googled Rick & Morty and Dragons and found the episode about the slut dragons


They were horrified and couldn't fathom how anyone would like this show. I was incredibly amused

That's fair. Just came to mind since reading Planetary I got some real Rick vibes from not-Reed Richards, especially going on about how there's infinite worlds and he can abandon the one he was born on any time he wants to. And they have the same theme of having incredible genius and inventing amazing things purely for their own benefit and hoarding them while the rest of the world's problems aren't a concern unless he's REALLY bored.

Also that's a very covid song

It feels pretty subtly built into the character. Until The Council of Ricks I wouldn't have particularly drawn out the Reed Richards influences and I still don't think of him in those terms, but perhaps that's me discounting Marvel in my personal life
