Spoilers for 'Rick and Morty' Season 4 Episode 7 'Promortyus' 

This week, like every other week, Rick and Morty find themselves on a different planet that they must escape from before they are killed. Enemies are hiding in every corner of this world and even though they think they're safe at first, that is not the case. 

With the show returning with yet another installment of Rick and Morty's hijinks, perhaps there is nothing better than to conclude your Sunday night with. Sometimes it might also be the only way to celebrate. "Nothing is better than watching @RickandMorty into your birthday," tweeted a fan. 

Not so surprising and true to their narrative, there were several references to pop culture that had fans going gaga. "Holy shit!!! Is that a straight up #MegaMan homage??? @RickandMorty are doin' @CapcomUSA_ proud! :D" 

"Now Star Wars references  #RickandMorty," tweeted another. "It Feels Good when there is no Guilt it's like Star Wars #RickandMorty," added another. 

There was also an "unnecessary badass suit up" as the duo armed up just ahead of self-defense, which usually involves destroying a whole civilization." Unnecessary badass suit up? No way. That this tokusatsu anime awesome," tweeted a fan.

Regardless of any of that, it is safe to say that 'Rick and Morty' appeased its fan base with yet another episode. "Yo this Rick and Morty episode is f**kin awesome lol," tweeted one. 

At the same time, many fans thought that the episode was not up to the mark and lacked the signature zest of the series. 

"I fear #RickandMorty is on the decline," tweeted one. "That rick and Morty episode was ass cheeks," agreed another. One person tweeted "damnit tonight’s Rick and Morty," with three thumbs down emojis hinting at their disapproval of the episode. 

Whether it is the long break the show had embarked on or the extremely fast-paced deliveries now, we cannot be sure what about the Adult Swim series is upsetting fans at the moment. But many have deemed the fourth episode lackluster. "Rick and Morty is not as funny as the first 3 seasons."

"In my opinion, season 4 of Rick and Morty is the worst of the seasons so far," agreed a fan.
