    The Rick and Morty is back! The season premiere, "Edge of ToMorty: Rick Die Rickpeat", left me with so many theory ideas and I couldn't wait! This episode showed us a side of Rick and Morty we haven't seen before and I LOVED it! In fact, I think that there was a life lesson hidden somewhere in all the jokes and violence. What was that lesson? What did Rick mean at the end of the episode? I'm here to explain it all to you!

    Tbh I didn't like this style of editing very much.. like don't get me wrong I loved staring at your face for 16 minutes but it's also interesting to see all the clips and other things go through the screen one after another so there's different things for my mind to focus on and experience

    I thought the lesson had to do with the hologram rick. When he became real. And said he was the way he was because he "had to be".

    Great analysis and all but like why green screen yourself into a room in your own office?

    The new format works, but i still like the visual puns and style of the more edited versions, its what drew me to the channel in the first place.

    Sorry MatPat, you have a very narrow and basic understanding of Objectivism and Egoism. Specially for Objectivism, Ayn Rand never intended for us to interpret self-interest in the way you describe. It would not be in one's self-interest to screw other to achieve a short term goal. Please read her actual essays or listen to Yaron Brook's podcast to truly understand the core principal of Objectivism.

    I liked the laid back episode and editing, but I also enjoy a lot of editing style videos. The editing creates the visuals of what your saying in my head and makes it fun to watch and learn. I think a mixture of the two would be good.

    I loved the old edits. But MatPat is just trying to put out more content faster. Makes sense.

    The new style is just as good as the old style. There is an intermediate or a middle ground that can be used that incorporates elements of both styles for each episode you create. The best of both worlds will attract audiences that like one, the other, or both.
