This is not a drill people! The first episode is airing now on adult swim on loop until midnight ET, so I think it should air at least one more time cuz it’s in the middle of the episode now. Sorry if there’s already a thread for this season somewhere, I didn’t have time to look for one.
Edit: just finished it, and it’s definitely the best episode of the series so far, although it doesn’t have the emotional punch of some episodes.April 1, 2017 at 9:05 pm #1202052462
I hate April fools. They did release a funny clip today thoughApril 1, 2017 at 9:43 pm #1202052491
Oh shit its realApril 1, 2017 at 10:57 pm #1202052512
It’s also still running, it didn’t go off on midnight like they originally said. Hopefully this just runs until the next new episode.April 2, 2017 at 12:04 am #1202052526
So I just watched it and it was good but it was definitely not one of the. I was kind of disappointed. It was funny but I expected something mind-blowing. I guess thats my fault and not the shows. The post credit scene was great though. And I love Beth. My grade: B+April 2, 2017 at 12:13 am #1202052541

I probably got caught up in the hype of it all calling it the best of the series, but it still met my very high expectations and I would put it in my top 3 or 4 episodes for sure.
Now that they’ve dealt with Rick getting out of prison hopefully they’ll get back to really creative and interesting stories like A Rickle in Time and Total Rickall.April 2, 2017 at 12:39 am #1202052568
I LOVED the episode! I smell Emmys, HOPEFULLY!!! 😀April 2, 2017 at 1:22 am #1202052587
This show does not deserve to be nominated in animated series. It deserves better than that. Rick and Morty should be nominated in comedy series. However, they’d be insane to submit there considering they havnt even been nominated in animated. My hope is for the show to pull an archer (snubbed in the first seasons but eventually got nominated and even won) and win, as well as get a writing nomination. If the voters are ever smart enough to do that I would love to see Rick and Morty compete in comedy. Such a great show.April 2, 2017 at 9:18 am #1202052765
Can somebody explain the rules for eligibility for animated programs? So, since it is animated program and not series only one episode is needed, right? Because the rest of the show is not airing till summer and won’t be eligible if it were competing in comedy. Does this mean that it can compete and be eligible in animated program but not in comedy series since the rest hasn’t aired? Can they still submit writing in comedy? Also, if this is the only eligible episode and the rest are airing over a month a part, is it possible that they could submit it in the TV movie section?April 2, 2017 at 12:36 pm #1202052822
I don’t think this one is in my top 5 episodes of the series, but it was terrific ! Welcome Back Rick and Morty !!! Funniest and most intelligent show on TV.May 15, 2017 at 2:54 am #1202093362
Adult Swim says the next episode will be out at 9:00pm 20th May. I hope this is correct.May 15, 2017 at 6:41 am #1202093455

Hard to say. The Emmy Rules say the Animated Program award is “For a single episode of a series or a special”; however, it also says, “A minimum of three episodes must air within the current eligibility year to qualify as a series.” It depends on whether or not whoever is in charge of deciding such things could consider the season premiere as a “special,” although I doubt that they would.
Also, if this is the only eligible episode and the rest are airing over a month a part, is it possible that they could submit it in the TV movie section?
I have seen the season premiere, and I don’t think it passes the “smell test” for a standalone movie – again, quoting the rules, “A television movie is defined as an original program, which tells a story with beginning, middle and end, and is broadcast in one part.”
