Why the Internet is Overreacting About RICK AND MORTY Season 4



  1. April says:

    Great podcast Gary & Chris. I wish you had asked him about Crusade cuz what’s nerdier than a Babylon 5 spin off? Nerdist podcasts are my favorite way to spend a lazy sunday. Except watching Chronicles of Narnia of course!

  2. ThisGuyRightHere says:

    Only on my second listen did I actually catch the “Gary Coleman can’t get any bigger” joke… I’m gonna go sit in timeout for missing that one… 🙁

  3. Walter says:

    Sick Chris has a bit of a Kasem quality to his voice in the intro here. Not Casey Kasem Cadence, but sort of a Casey Kasem throatfeel. Oh gross. Throatfeel. Bleh.

  4. _Inno says:

    Why does nowhere rerun Midnight Caller? What a great show that was!

  5. tomK says:

    Great episode!

    I was really hoping that Gary would ask us to come in on Saturday to enjoy our burritos, though.

  6. VonRBuzard says:

    Loved him in American Gothic. “Someone’s at the door”

  7. Greatest ending to a Nerdist Podcast ever!  Liquid audio gold,

  8. Devoney Dean says:

    I’ve loved Gary Cole since Midnight Caller!!

  9. Lance says:

    And you try too hard to be a nerd.

  10. ThisGuyRightHere says:

    I’m gonna need you to go ahead and not be a dick… thaaanks…

  11. Aethox says:

    If you ever have Mr. Cole on again, please inquire about his time on The West Wing (stories from the set, nerdy facts we might not know about the cast members, etc). I was sad that it wasn’t discussed, but it was interesting hearing about the rest of his career.

  12. Wildride says:

    “New York elevators don’t look like New York elevators on film.  That’s why we usually tape a bunch of cats to Gary Cole, and send him to Bulgaria.”

  13. Phil Ken Sebben says:

    HA-HA-HA! Cookies on dowels….

      Yes, I am so tuned into how many times he says this. I wonder how a professional speaker can do that?
