    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    After last season's finale, I was curious to see the family dynamics towards Rick changing, but I guess they wanted a welcome-back-into-the-world premiere first, which, ok, is fun enough, but firmly within the show's comfortable margin. Still very enjoyable on a joke-per-minute basis though, and I get a kick out of Rick's nemesis being a pervy Aquaman.

    Episode 2 "Mortyplicity": Still not the continuation from last season's finale that I'm looking forwards to, but still great fun and better than last week's, as it's in the same groundwork of Rick's self-obsessed "solution" bringing havoc on his family. This time it's filtered through mind-bending, hilariously repetitive sci-fi concept with some character-based variations to keep it fresh, and grounded by a few bits of emotional edge too (especially Rick and Beth).

    Are we to assume the family at the end is the c-137 Rick & Morty?

    After loving last week, the latest one is ok, but feels like the show's weakest episode for me.

    It wasn't as funny as the previous two, but as someone who grew up with 90's cartoons, I always appreciate a good Captain Planet spoof. And Alison Brie does good in the ending.

    Overall this season is already way better than the fourth one.

    Season 4 has its fair share of clunkers, but 5 is just awful so far.

    Captain Planet episode was horrible.

    Decoy episode even worse.

    I'm just getting really tired of "break Morty's heart for the LULZ".

    What started as a goofy gag in the first couple of seasons, has become just mean and depressing.

    I think the remote control in the Vat of Acid episode is what pushed me over.

    Morty has become a victim of the writers' misanthropy and he's the least deserving of anyone on the show.

    INB4 "that's the whole point!" Well fine, but I don't like it.

    After a promising premiere and a strong second episode, these last two have been my least favorite of the show in a row. This week's especially feels more Family Guy than Rick and Morty.

    I don't know, I found this one really, really funny. It was really gross, even for Rick & Morty, but it hit. And the [

    Just watched the ferret Voltron episode, and the turkey episode.

    Godawful.

    What the hell happened to this show?

    Which is indeed awful.

    But I have not seen such a quick, steep decline in a show's quality since The Simpsons hit season 10.

    You're being hyperbolic without context. What made the shows you watched so wretched?

    How am I being hyperbolic? I stated an opinion, which I stand by.

    Main reason - they aren't funny. At all. Seasons 1-3 (and less so 4, but still not this bad) are consistently clever and laugh out loud hilarious.

    Neither of these episodes made me laugh once.

    The Voltron Ferret episode took what could have been a decent Rick and Morty concept and squandered it with awful writing. The battling narrations by Rick and Summer didn't have a point, nor did the subplot of Summer taking Morty's place at Rick's side. It felt like 3 or 4 episode ideas that they couldn't properly flesh out so they just threw them together in hopes they stuck.

    The Turkey episode was just...what the fuck. Not funny ever, and its attempts at being funny are cringe worthy. Keith David has some truly embarrassing lines in this.

    You're being hyperbolic by comparing it to the downfall of the Simpsons. Humor is subjective. It's wicked funny to me. Rick making the statues wet their pants. References to Annihilation, Superman, pardoning turkeys (which is a real stupid US tradition... maybe you don't get it... being up in Canada?), soldier turkeys....

    By simply just coming into a thread saying "it sucked" without adding anything else.... doesn't really make people want to have a conversation with you about it.

    By saying humor is subjective, you're saying that it cannot be criticized. Basically "your opinion is wrong."

    It is the worst downfall in quality I have seen since The Simpsons hit season 10.
