The Rick and Morty is back! The season premiere, "Edge of ToMorty: Rick Die Rickpeat", left me with so many theory ideas and I couldn't wait! This episode showed us a side of Rick and Morty we haven't seen before and I LOVED it! In fact, I think that there was a life lesson hidden somewhere in all the jokes and violence. What was that lesson? What did Rick mean at the end of the episode? I'm here to explain it all to you!

  • So glad to see so many of you liked this more "laid back" style. It helped us get the episode out same week, rather than weeks later after all this was relevant! That said, seeing a lot of comments about the green screen, lighting, and background, so quick note: I had to film while traveling, meaning stuff was a bit rougher than it normally would be. Shouldn't be a problem in the future!

    • The old style is better than this new one

    • Hey matpat my gf and I are huge fans of Rick and Morty and in both the new episodes we've seen at least one glitch throughout the show, maybe it's something, maybe it's not and our cable is just messed up, but it'd be really cool to see if it turns out to be something crazy like you did with the fortnite theories a while back

    • The lesson: always wear gloves when handling reactive crystals

    • Yo matpat. Most obvious and lazy greenscreening ever.

    • Dad please come back home.

  • Does anyone know where you can see the premier

  • That's the thing tho I live my life in pursuit of making others happy making society's life better

  • No

  • 11:58

  • I loved the absurdity of avoiding something in order to gain it.

  • This was dope! TY Theorist crew.

  • Jared-MatPat crossover?

  • Please read "the Selfish Gene" (dawkins) on how altruism emerges from pure selfishness (rational egoism) using evolutionary stable strategies...

  • like new style

  • One of my life philosophies is just don't be a dirt bag.

  • This episode did confirm the theory that Meeseeks are actually converted Mortys. He said it a couple times. "Yadda yadda, I seek death."

  • love the laidback style, very informal, very friendly :D

  • I was irritated the whole time because matpat was standing in front of a green screen and he was darker than the surroundings were I like that style but as for me matpat has to be phisically in that room You weren't even using that green screen effect too often so why even bother

  • Awesome episode dude!!!! Love the new style

  • I live in the UK and can't watch the episode until Wednesday.

  • Why does matpat look like he’s going to cry

  • How have you morphed from a skinny nerd to a nerd that looks like Tom cruise

  • Inaccurately talks about Objectivism through the terms of Egoism... ...then uses Ethical Egoism to accurately describe Objectivism... Then inaccurately sums up Ethical Egoism.

  • Ok boomer

  • wow is this my TOK presentation

  • I think I speak for a huge amount of your viewers if I say that I would prefer some random background instead of this green screen you have, the bright room with the dark person doesn't fit at all.... Even if it's just you sitting on you desk with some r&m on the computer screen in the background or on your sofa.......

  • Woah... Ends justify the means HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Objectivism ...geez...

  • Mat have a Pickle rick tattoo

  • Why does it look like you are greenscreened into your literal live stream room?

  • Dug this laidback version

  • I loved it I felt very chill 👌😀

  • I like the old style better, my man. But appreciate you trying new things and your channels in general.

  • It was awesome

  • I loved this episode but maybe more visuals next time? I love the animation style more 😂

  • ur green screen is bad get a less reflective one and put the lights behind you to improve

  • Anyone know where to stream R&M online free?

  • I like both styles U should alternate styles depending on the siriousness and other factors of the vid

  • Uk gang 😭

  • I have no way to watch it, feck

  • not a big fan of the greenscreen

  • I absolutely love Akita man

  • It was a nice change

  • MY OPINION ON THIS TYPE OF STYLE OF VIDEO: hi mat I’m a big fan of your videos and always will be wetter I like it or not haha but if you see this message I’d have to say this style was actually more interesting to watch like don’t get me wrong I loved the edits you’d usually do but you speaking to the camera was really entertaining to watch and felt like you were talking more to me the audience compared to me listening with edits. I liked it and it was really well done so I’m not saying all videos in the future should be like this but it should be a bit of both cause this style was as good as your other ones and different but in a good way. Keep making videos btw! I’ll be watching and learning

  • The lesson in that episode is that bread should be toasted if and only when you have pickles in your pocket.

  • That's some shitty green screen editing

  • What’s the background music from 6:55 to 9:47

  • enjoyed seeing you instead of some much editing!

  • This laid back style was pretty good matpat.

  • Ye the laidback style is nice as well

  • MatPat has a Mr. Meeseeks tattoo with the caption, "Lucky you!"

  • I like the laid back style, but in the past I stayed for the full 20 minutes BECAUSE of the high pace style. Then again, I guess I just learned not to live in the past, so knock yourself out

  • kinda like wise crack

  • I like it a lot, the laid back style is a lot better

  • I miss JPEG Matpat

  • Seeing MatPat move like a human for minutes straight instead of a twinged image of him makes me feel almost uncomfortable

  • I love it !

  • you look liku you havent sleept since last rick and morty episode

  • I want to *squanch* my family

  • As always entertaining and well done. Miss the old format but do what you like, just make more.... more.... MORE!

  • I really like the new video style. Although I think the green screen job needs a little more tuning especially in the A-roll.

  • I think it’s great

  • Nice....but what is Jared from Wisecrack supposed to talk about now???

  • Also, talking about W. A. S. P. s figuring out things the old school style, that's a very cool meta joke.

  • nice laid back analysis! appreciated how it tackled a lot of ideas over potentially forcing a theory just for the sake of the brand. also surprised it got out so soon which was greatt. keep doing you matpat!!
