Rick and Morty - Season 3 - Review

This is the best season of Rick and Morty so far. It starts and ends on a great note and focuses more on the family. During this season we finally find out that it’s not about the intelligent theories and awesome adventures Rick and Morty go through every day.

Rick and Morty are about our generation, it’s about family and the complex emotional states our society and environment forces us to be in. Adult Swim, along with the creators of the show, Justin Roiland, and Dan Harmon, makes sure that every season is worth the wait, and knows when to respect the fans’ intelligence and patience every time.

The second season of Rick and Morty ended with Rick warning Morty that from now on, it will only get darker, which is what happens in the third season. It’s darker, more consistent, and ambitious than all other seasons. In this season, we see Rick falling apart and losing control.

He tried to gain over his family and is left with no choice but to let them be. We see a more vulnerable side of the self-destructive drunk, yet clever scientist who sacrifices himself to become part of a Federation and save his family from being stuck in an empty world.

The season starts with Jerry separated from the family after Beth and he got a divorce. We also get to see how Rick and Morty are affected by their parents’ divorce.

One of the best episodes of the season shows Rick’s self-destructive nature at its best, but in a way that kind of explains that he isn’t necessarily the smartest and strongest man in the world. He is just another old soul who can be defeated, whine over things, or might do absolutely anything to get out of Family therapy.

In an award-winning episode, Pick Rick, Rick turns himself into a Pickle and loses his way to revert back into a human just to avoid going to therapy with the rest of the family.

Whines over a McDonald’s sauce that they stopped making since the premiere of a Hollywood film; this episode was so famous that McDonald’s actually made the sauce again only for one day and Rick and Morty’s fans stood outside of McDonald’s shouting, “Give us the sauce back!”

Beth this season is more involved in Rick’s adventures, now that Jerry is gone, she tried to find her independence and self again. Finding herself longing for Rick’s approval and discovering her evil side.

In one of the episodes, Rick replaces her with a clone and when she comes back to life, decides to fix things with Jerry and get her family back together, she starts getting an existential crisis.

Morty is all grown up in the season, he’s still Morty, but more in control. He understands that his grandfather is not in power and tries to help out or at least discover his own wants and needs.

This season from Rick and Morty is very entertaining, you wouldn’t want to miss it or miss seeing one of the Presidents of the United States of America needing their help for a certain mission.
