Kanye West posted fan art of him on Rick And Morty, so now we can stop the internet

Well, this is it. The internet is done. We’ve seen the last thing the internet has needed to produce, and once we pass it along to you, we can start getting ready to shut the whole internet down. Man, the idea of connecting everyone in the world to a limitless supply of information sure seemed like a good idea at the…

Scientist publishes papers on Rick And Morty to prove that a lot of academic journals are bullshit

Before “fake news” was a catch-all term wielded by the right to cudgel anything they disagreed with, it was a literal term to describe actual, poorly produced articles masquerading as fact. In the realm of science—where widespread misinformation can have disastrous, global consequences—the issue is even more serious.…

This tournament in search of the world's worst fan base is really heating up

“Fandom” is starting to sound like a four-letter word these days. Over the last few years, devotees of the world’s most popular properties have taken it upon themselves to harass women, drive down Rotten Tomatoes scores, harass women, spew racist shit, and harass more women.

For…

Justin Roiland is selling a signed Nintendo 3DS that explains an obscure Rick And Morty joke

“Total Rickall” is one of the best, strangest episodes of Rick And Morty, in which a parasite begins infecting the family’s memories and playing with the conventions of TV continuity. In one of the episode’s many flashbacks, Rick unveils a crazed plan to load up on limited-edition Legend Of Zelda Nintendo 3DSes and…

Atlanta, Westworld, and the episode-description revolution

There’s always too much good TV to keep up with, but in a packed spring—The Americans, Westworld, The Terror, Legion, sigh—Atlanta’s second season has felt like uniquely essential viewing. Comedies go “dark” all the time, but few manage to delve all the way into horror, as Donald Glover’s has, while still retaining…

Dan Harmon pities McDonald’s for having to deal with Rick And Morty fans

Even though the overblown “controversy” is so 2017, Rick And Morty co-creator Dan Harmon is still being forced to talk about his show’s complicated relationship with McDonald’s Szechuan sauce.

Game Of Thrones showrunners recorded the audio commentary for Rick And Morty's "Pickle Rick" episode

Though your personal preference may vary, Szechuan sauce and “I’M PICKLE RICK” are easily in the top five most-circulated bits and quotes from Rick And Morty season three.
