Sizing Up RICK AND MORTY at Season Three’s Midpoint

Sizing Up RICK AND MORTY at Season Three’s Midpoint

We turned ourselves into a Rick and Morty pop culture talk show! We’re Nerdist News Talks Back: All Ricks Considered! But in addition to breaking down the darkest season of Adult Swim’s hit animated series, today’s panel also goes into the first teaser for Super Troopers 2, and whether we just got as close as we ever will to Half-Life 3.

“Cinnamon Challenge” victor and host Jessica Chobot was joined by Nerdist editor and Because Science‘s Kyle Hill, Nerdist News writer Joan Ford, and associate editor and Doctor Who expert Kyle Anderson. We’ll leave it up to you to decide if these four are as co-dependent as Rick and Morty.

The group discussed whether Morty is becoming the “new” Rick as he loses more and more of his empathy, or whether the Morty we saw in the last episode was just embracing his best and worst traits to survive. Find out what everyone thinks about the show’s most emotional season and where the show’s newest song ranks all time.

Also, what did everyone think about Super Troopers 2‘s first teaser? Did they even want a sequel? If not, what comedy franchises should get one instead? And will this be the first real success for Broken Lizard in years? Now that we think about it, has any comedy sequel ever been successful?

Finally, they broke down the fan fiction/possible Half-Life 3 story writer Mark Laidlaw posted to his website. Is this as much closure as the franchise will ever get? Would that be less disappointing than the game failing to live up to the massive expectations people have for it after all this time? If we’re never getting a new Half-Life, what other “Developmental Hell” game would they like to see?

Of course, if you ever want your questions answered on Nerdist News Talks Back, tune in live every weekday at 1:00p.m. PST on Nerdist’s YouTube and Alpha channels.

It’s the internet’s squanchiest interactive show.
