Possible spoilers for season 4 episode 1 of 'Rick and Morty' titled 'Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat'
After waiting for almost two years for a new season, fans of 'Rick and Morty' got a much deserved season 4.
Episode 1 of 'Rick and Morty' titled 'Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat' brings the shenanigans of the adventurous grandfather-grandson duo back to the screen. And for hundreds of fans worldwide, the episode was bringing back the brand that is their misadventures.
"Worth the wait, very well done. @RickandMorty," said a fan. "That new Rick and Morty episode was very eye-opening lol welcome back," said another. Several others were tongue-tied with the premiere episode. "This @RickandMorty show something else! They on some other shit lol crazy first episode for s4." At the same time, fans drew comparisons with the third season of the show. "That was better than 70% of the episodes last season." For many though, the episode in itself was just enough. "This is f**king amazing. Well worth the wait."
The adventures of the first episode are as thrilling as they are hilarious. After dying, Rick's backup uploads him on the clone server across several universes, where for one reason or the other, fascism prevails. One universe, two universes - his third rebirth finally gets him out of the loop. But fascism and a Nazi Morty made for a current yet hilarious premise.
"Rick's plot was easily some of the funniest shit this series has ever had. Him killing himself as a teddy bear got a huge laugh out of me," noted a fan. "Teddy Bear Rick offing himself as soon as he noticed the fascism was the highlight of this episode," said a fan. But won't fascists already have a cloning technology in place? "Said this in the episode thread, but when you think about it, fascists would likely have an active cloning/eugenics program..." pointed out a fan.
'Rick and Morty' airs at 11.30 pm ET on Mondays on Adult Swim.
