Why do you all hate on Rick and Morty so much

Why the hell do you have a bone to pick with everything that happens in this show?
>Rick is an almighty and careless butthole, everything bends to his will, shit is resolved at the end of the episode
>"What an overused trope, this is so frickin boring"
>Rick is not an almighty and careless butthole, other people get to intervene and help
>"Oh wow, they made the main character weak, what a shitty episode"

>Side characters act cool like the main character
>"Oh look, they're now all Rick-lite, this sucks"
>Side characters act normal, as opposed to the main character
>"Let me guess, all powerful and nihilistic Rick shows up and saves the day even though he doesn't care, what an overused trope"

>Episode is focused on random sci-fi skits strictly for the humor and the action, characters don't change
>"Damn, what a bunch of filler content, this episode sucked"
>Episode is focused on character development and introspection, characters change
>"Such low hanging fruit, of course they're gonna talk about the dead wife, the writers have run out of ideas"

>Show changes
>"This shit sucks, why did it change?"
>Show stays exactly the same
>"This shit sucks, why is there no evolution?"

You just hate that the show is no longer new to you. The only reason why you like only the first 1 or 2 seasons is because they were so whimistical and short that you didn't have anything to pick on.

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.

    And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid

      Are there, though?
      Because I've looked through multiple threads about multiple episodes and multiple seasons, and it's only people complaining about them.
      Like ok, it's an average show that tries to have both depth and sci fi goofy bullshit in it. Sometimes it kinda works, sometimes it kinda doesn't. But it definitely doesn't deserve the amount of shit that it gets, and it seems like people shit on it just because shitting on it has become a meme, rather than because the show is doing something wrong.

        In general, if you want a succinct explanation to the general hate it gets, in essence the issue is that after the first couple of seasons, the show starts spending half its time essentially overindulging in the same kinds of sci-fi and writing trends it spent so much time mocking the previous seasons, and the the other half spelling out its writing to the audience like they’re moronic and don’t get how witty and clever and subversive the writers are. It’s like, fine, you can write goofy and irreverent sci-fi shit, you can dissect that same goofy and irreverent shot for laughs or drama or general introspection of the genre, but at least pick a lane and stick to it instead of acting like a stuck up b***h about it. Most everything else is subjective, like whether or not you find Jerry and Beth’s ongoing marital woes interesting or Rick’s crybaby backstory and the effect it has on the present interesting, that’s for each viewer to decide themselves. But the writing tone is the main issue, since the general vibe is that of a sci-fi television writer that loathes working on their own show and goes out of their way to tell the public how much they think their own work sucks to avoid confronting how ashamed they are that this is their job.

        I’m fine with what the show is, a sci-fi cartoon that tries to delve into areas most other shows wouldn’t delve into like the consequences of treating entire universes as disposable or examining the mindset of a person that would rather risk life and limb on interplanetary adventures over spending a single night with their considerably more mundane family they claim to love. I’m not fine with a show that basically acts like Mr Meeseeks in how it constantly screams and demands your attention while flagellating itself on how it hates what it is and wants to stop existing.

          Aren't those the main selling points of the show, though? Like, the large amount of meta humor, the "le genius quirky man explaining things to the brainlet kid", and the whole "using a trope and then shitting on it or vice versa"? Sure, they're trying a bit too hard to be meta and sound smart in the newer episodes, but other than that they're not really that different. For example, the lawnmower dog episode and the kuato episode have the same basic principle at their core: take some random element from a famous movie and go crazy with it for shits and giggles.
          I will agree that the excessively sexual episodes like the "incest baby" episode and the "jerry getting cucked by his wife with a clone of his wife" episode are way out there in the weeds and they're straight up cringe.

          I might be tone deaf, but I'm not picking up on that. I don't remember any part of the show displaying the writers' hate for the show.

          Man you are new here. Yes people hate spam like really hate it but existing general boards also show us the flaws of generals which is why it's always been a debate on Cinemaphile.

          Yea I just drop by occasionally, usually when a new season of a show drops, or when I remember that a new season of a show dropped. I don't stick around long enough for spam to bother me.

            Not both at once, if they makes sense. Like imagine if they spent the whole dream episode picking apart everything cliche and stupid and ridiculous about both their situation and Scary Terry were instead of just letting the jokes about a domestic Freddy Krueger speak for themselves.

            >I don't remember any part of the show displaying the writers' hate for the show.
            Think back to all the times Rick or Morty would b***h and moan whenever they’re dealing with any form of continuity, like it’s a chore they have to deal with instead of, you know, a natural part of having a story with consequences. Or if you want a specific example, how they made a Nazi Morty tell Rick to stop being meta and “just have fun”.

      Every show that lasts for more than one season uses the same style of humor they had in S1 for the following seasons.

      Hating something for legitimate reasons is fine.
      Hating something just for the sake of hating something is cringe and reddit-tier.

          Maybe I wasn't, but 7 years is a long time, and I'm fairly certain that every quasi-famous animated show gets spammed here at some point.
          Do the people here just hate everything because famous and because spam?

      You do realize we already have a R&M thread up, right? You’re not a special snowflake for making your own separate thread.
