i'm mr meeseeks look at me!

Mordy , Monday, 27 January 2014 05:19 (nine years ago) link

i watch each episode multiple times and they only get funnier each time. simulation ep funniest so far but meeseeks is hilarious

Mordy , Monday, 27 January 2014 05:19 (nine years ago) link

this show is the best

Clay, Monday, 27 January 2014 05:43 (nine years ago) link

this show has made me re-identify entirely w/ my name

Mordy , Monday, 27 January 2014 05:52 (nine years ago) link

this show is incredible.

tɹi.ʃɪp (Treeship), Monday, 27 January 2014 06:30 (nine years ago) link

the Mr Meeseeks episode is the first one I've seen that I thought was funny

SHAUN (DJP), Monday, 27 January 2014 13:20 (nine years ago) link

u didn't like the simulation episode? i thought the jerry subplot was hysterical. "yep."

Mordy , Monday, 27 January 2014 16:59 (nine years ago) link

i hate community so i'm surprised i like this show. i wish it was somewhat less southparky/scatological/trollish but there's enough of interest to make it worthwhile

The pilot left me cold and I haven't really been paying attention to it

SHAUN (DJP), Monday, 27 January 2014 17:01 (nine years ago) link

friend showed me the mr meeseeks episode the other day. it was super funny but did u notice that the characters keep stuttering and going "uhhh"? whats up with that

flopson, Monday, 27 January 2014 17:01 (nine years ago) link

i think the pilot was the weakest ep so far (the m night shmalyalien one was the best) tho i was already really impressed by the art + humor from the beginning

Mordy , Monday, 27 January 2014 17:02 (nine years ago) link

slow down. looking good. my man!

also every single glitch gag was hilarious

Mordy , Monday, 27 January 2014 17:09 (nine years ago) link

Fucking love this show, but yeah, the pilot is easily the weakest episode. The voice actors hadn't really settled in, and their verbal tics were really annoying.

I really hate the non-Rick and Morty characters, particularly the dad. Are there any episodes where the dad is not in it at all?

The dad is hilarious in the simulation episode.

Mordy , Tuesday, 4 February 2014 20:58 (nine years ago) link

Watching the pilot, Rick sounds an awful lot like he's based on Dan Harmon's verbal tics and heavy drinking

oh man this show. that meeseeks bit, the way they kept throwing "i'm mr meeseeks! look at me!" in the middle of their speeches, basically anytime a meeseeks was on screen, slayed me. anyone know how any episodes there'll be? also why have so many american tv show taken a break these past two weeks?

my guess is that the first season will have 10. Moral Orel had 10 in the first season, as did Frankenhole (MO got an expanded second season, Frankenhole just got 10 more). Squidbillies only had 6, and Venture Bros had 13 in the first season.

Mordy , Friday, 14 February 2014 20:13 (eight years ago) link

ah ok thx jvc
mordy, are any of those shows anything like rick & morty? i'm in the mood for smth good. have watched a half ep of venture bros and not really into it tbh.

Jibe, Friday, 14 February 2014 20:15 (eight years ago) link

squidbillies is stupid, but moral orel is alltime classic imho. also try china, il, metalocalypse + frisky dingo (by the guy who does archer now) - none of them are like rick + morty but they're all off-beat stoner friendly cartoons that premiered on adult swim so in that way they're all exactly like rick + morty.

Mordy , Friday, 14 February 2014 20:21 (eight years ago) link

I really should give this another try, the pilot really didn't work for me but I keep hearing it's gotten better.

Venture Bros will always be the ultimate Adult Swim animated thing but the long breaks between seasons drive me nuts.

Simon H., Friday, 14 February 2014 20:35 (eight years ago) link

this probably sounds like an excuse, but venture bros takes patience. i basically hated it at first, but it builds on itself and just keeps getting better as it goes. easily one of the best things adult swim has aired.

last episode was every bad thing about harmon's style rolled into one: vapid sentimentality, pointless improvisational teenage blathering heavy on the pop culture references, fourth wall breaking, DEEP MEANING without meaning ("i eat breakfast every morning twenty yards from my rotting corpse")... it's been a mostly good and occasionally very good show until here but man do i hope they hold off on this penny arcade ish in the future

Oh, I fucking loved this episode. Might be my third favorite, after Meeeseeeks and the alien simulator.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 20 March 2014 16:47 (eight years ago) link

lol i really liked this episode too - not sure i'd put it in my top 3 tho bc cronenberg ep was still better + this seemed more improv/pastiche which is great + hilarious but maybe not quite as masterful as some of the others?

Mordy , Thursday, 20 March 2014 17:19 (eight years ago) link

Is this the one with the sex robot? That one is the first I actually disliked. The Marmaduke writer appearing at the end seemed very "Family Guy" and too many of the jokes relied on tired "battle of the sexes" tropes.

Treeship, Thursday, 20 March 2014 17:23 (eight years ago) link

no, this is the one w/ the tv + alternate reality device. i thought the conclusion was even a little affecting. and the improv commercials + shows were hilarious

Mordy , Thursday, 20 March 2014 17:29 (eight years ago) link

yeah same here, found the ep v entertaining. dunno why but the whole fake doors thing, including r&m's bewilderement at whether it was an ad or a movie or reality tv, really got me.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 20 March 2014 17:45 (eight years ago) link

different strokes i guess? really really disliked this one; "family guy" comparisons felt painfully appropriate.

a lot of people got their knives out about louie after the wanking thing became better known but at least some of those people had already been pointing out the red flags in that show for a while (and getting a lot of flack for it) - they didn't know how real it was either - but it became easier to do this once everyone knew about his behaviour. there's some of that going on here I think - it could look like gloating but it could also reflect a hope that such criticism won't be automatically shouted down

many awful stories about this scumbag here

Justin Roiland has a track record of using social media to hit up and exploit vulnerable people and minors and I believe this is an open secret in the industry, he used my sexual trauma and my love for RaM to groom me and I am just one of SO MANY. I am so glad this is public.

i’d kinda given the benefit of the doubt since the show is so ~meta~ that the people behind it were also somewhat self aware of how douchey it comes off as, but no it turns out its creator is like the perfect embodiment of its worst fans

flopson, Sunday, 15 January 2023 23:58 (two weeks ago) link

I'm not gonna pretend I was on any "never liked him" bit, but it bears remembering that the first pilot/indie cartoon sketch of Rick and Morty ended with Morty - a literal child - having to suck Rick's dick. That always revolted me.

it seems like a lot of these stories have been floating around for a while, just never attracted wider attention until now. that's often how it goes with these predatory celebs, it stays an open secret amongst those in the know and there's murmurings online but nothing happens until either a journalist hears about it and is able to put together a piece compiling the accusations managing to not be scared off by legal threats, or the celeb gets into trouble anyway which gives all the other stories much more attention

G. D’Arcy Cheesewright (silby), Monday, 16 January 2023 08:22 (two weeks ago) link

it's a tired cliche at this point for commentators to use phrases like "in a post-#metoo world" the implication being that everyone now takes this shit seriously and no one can get away with it for long because they'll face consequences and the accusers will be listened to and taken seriously etc etc - depending on the commentator this is either wishful thinking or paranoia about cancel culture - regardless you'd hope a minute's reflection about what things are actually like now would make them think twice about employing this cliche but I keep seeing it all the time

^that one still blows my mind. still have feminist friends proclaiming they're "#teamJohnny" (btw how sick is it to refer to an abuse case with #team anything, this isn't a fucking sport).

hell, there was a little known pop punk band someone reported in the bassnectar thread that had several members accused of sexual misconduct, and everybody in the twitter thread reporting it was accusing the victim of seeking clout - for a band nobody has heard of.

Evan, Tuesday, 17 January 2023 14:47 (two weeks ago) link

All Time Low (sorry, had to dig the thread back up lol). so I greatly overstated things by saying a "band nobody has heard of", they're definitely well known in the scene.

but not the extremely famous type of band someone would 'falsely accuse' for clout (which let's be frank, nobody really does this anyway, it's just a dog whistle).

fentanyl young (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 17 January 2023 15:22 (two weeks ago) link

The odd thing is that I vaguely remember reading about this in 2020. But it must have been a false memory. After a bit of Googling I think I'm remembering this story from 2018 about Dan Harmon, one of the other minds behind Rick and Morty:
https://www.rollingstone.com/tv-movies/tv-movie-news/community-creator-dan-harmon-admits-sexually-harassing-ex-employee-198341/

He was subsequently fired from Community, although the official reason was that he was unreliable. But he was rehired, and is apparently working on a movie. The news about Justin Roiland makes the following story seem less charming than it would have been in 2021:
https://www.ladbible.com/entertainment/tv-and-film-rick-and-mortys-justin-roiland-got-drunk-while-recording-drunk-rick-20210427

"The recording was for season three episode Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender, in which Rick sets up a deadly Saw-like scenario for a team of superheroes after going on a bender. Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon explained that he encouraged Roiland to get drunk before the take.

And method act he did, knocking back several shots, despite associate producer Sydney Ryan asking Roiland not to have tequila. She explained: "The first thing I told him was don't have tequila, so of course, he had tequila... and liquor just adds a whole new aspect to Justin."

Harmon then admitted that things got 'a little creative'. The clip ... shows Roiland knocking back his fourth shot of tequila, before declaring his, quite clearly boozy, take sounds 'too sober'. Meanwhile Ryan insists: "No it doesn't - it sounds great. Later in the clip, Ryan can be heard urging Roiland to 'try and read this one on-script' as the voice-actor ad libs his lines, questions what happens to us after we die and swears at his colleagues."

Back when *Adventure Time* was a thing I remember saying to myself "please, dear God, don't let Pendleton Ward turn out to be a child molester, rapist, or sex predator". I admit it was because he had a fuzzy beard, and back that I was prejudiced against people with facial hair. The irony is that Justin Roiland, who has been consistently well-groomed - bearded, but well-groomed - is in fact the serial sex predator. Not Pendleton Ward.

Ashley Pomeroy, Wednesday, 18 January 2023 19:01 (two weeks ago) link

And unfortunately Roiland also had a recurring role on that as the Earl of Lemongrab.

I've seen that behind-the-scenes clip of him getting drunk while recording a take, not saying it was a smoking gun or anything, but it did make me think he "Urghh, this guy's actually kind of a dick".

Although really there were plenty of clues before that, like the way he handled a dispute with the animators when they decided to unionise:

I had only watched the first episode of this show before yesterday. My son had shown it to me when he was in middle school and I was thoroughly repulsed and never went back for more. For whatever reason, yesterday I decided to give it another chance and threw a few more episodes on. I'm still skeptical that I'll find much value in it, but my plan was to keep trying to engage. Then as soon as I flipped it off, I went to check the news and saw the news about his domestic violence.

Finished season 2 yesterday and I'm in no hurry to continue. I've seen enough to learn what people like about it, but have been overwhelmed by too many butts and pendulous testicular shapes to continue for now.

I knew about the Blonde Redhead song, but was surprised to hear it so early on in the series. However, the Tony! Toni! Tone! drop towards the end of season 2 blew my mind.
