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 Film Theorists it reminds me of the old vids, comforting really when everyone’s trying to change due to IT-tvs’s algorithms and stuff

    • yeah it was good episode but may get boring if you use this as your default video format now

    • Great format, I hope you keep integrating this style with your episodes.

    • The Film Theorists did you see the episode with the Simpson’s where they tell where they are (conform your threory) an Episode were marg wants some sense of important and get into some saw lumberjack game at the end the lady ask homer where they live and he says springfield and she asked which one and I’m not sure and she says .........

    • Oh hey, I'm the kind of person that pays attention more while watching you move around. I'm a kinesthetic learner, so this episode I actually enjoyed. Nothing wrong with your other uploads, but "MattPat live action avatar" has a harder time keeping me interested than "MattPat IRL". Point is, I liked this vidoe and would like more with you passionately yelling at the screen and waving your hands around like Charlie from Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Also, bring in your wife occasionally isn't a bad idea, she's funny, so it would be entertaining to have her walk in with fact updates or something of that manner. Anyhow, these are my opinions, anyone is welcome to disagree. I'm just casting my vote.

  • This dude talking to me like my paster at Sunday church

  • why did he green screen himself in his living room

  • Go Anime!! #Dragon Ball & Naruto

  • You already got an upvote for this intro

  • That's Utilitarianism, move towards a goal by any means necessary even if the methods are vague and the goals unrealistic and utopian.Also known as Communism or Socialism. Moral absolutism states that the same rules must apply to all moral agents. If you want to have a rule that others do not steal your things, you must accept that you cannot initiate theft from others. You cannot steal what is willingly given.


  • I know the voice and the face. But seeing you saying "Welcome to Film Theory" in person is weird, weird cool. Like watching the watchmojo lady talking. Also MatPat, PLEASE DO A THEORY ON WATCHMEN SERIES!

  • This is why i just dont live lol

  • You could just have said "they turned into a politician or a CEO". Next time someone gets a job like that throw them in prison right away, saves you a lot of trouble.

  • seems cool but needs more animation

  • It was good. Not better but still good. I'll watch either way so do you and have fun

  • hey matpat can u do a film theory on the movie journey 2: themysterious island? cus it always bothered me how the animals were so huge that the characters could ride them and like where the island is located. if anyone can explain it ik that you would be the person to do so. just think about it.

  • Is this guy a homosexual ? Not judging

  • So can you please make an episode on Code Geass?

  • Yes

  • what is the take away?

  • So this episode is just about not being an a$$hole


  • Great episode my dude!

  • For your highest good with everyone else concern ....

  • The lesson is very obvious

  • "ends justify the means" sounds like a theme from the renaissance out of "The Prince"

  • m e h

  • why he say anime like that

  • No I did not like the laid back style. Go back to the old game theory style. It's what hooked me on Game Theory in the first place.

  • thanks for pointing out the obvious. we naturally knew what was implied as the big brained fandom that we are

  • why does he look so good

  • The only part about this style I don't like is that obvious greenscreen is obvious... Otherwise, it's cool.

  • This reminds me of a GCSE English lesson

  • you sometimes sound like dane cook doing standup .... i cant be the only one who has said this before

  • See these kids don't know about Zen but you have to learn this kids everybody in the world who's ever watching this video there's a reason why they're teaching you this technique there's something very bad going to happen to this world and we're going to have to use that technique to fight it because there's no other way only send can help I'll survive the apocalypse

  • The writing of this episode is actually profound

  • I don't want to get too much into philosophy, but I think people sometimes don't get that the thing that is best for them is often the most ethical option. Empathy was an evolutionary trait for a reason. Helping others helps yourself.

  • enjoyable break down ep

  • I like this

  • i have -9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 iQ

  • I love this episode and I liked to see Matt Pat not animated. Oli is so cute!

  • I prefer the animation (not sure if you call it that) but you’re a creator & probably want to try something new. Do what feels right to you.
