I still watch it because I've been here since the pilot premiered and I want to see what happens to it, for better or worse. Plus I get a new season of content every year or so since I don't watch another TV shows still in production.>>36237>Season 07 on approach, how do you think Justin's departure will affect the show (if at all)?
Roiland hadn't written for the show since season 3, and the show became significantly more scripted over time, so Roiland's abscence won't be felt in the writing anymore than it is already. The voice acting on the other hand? Yeah, that could go sideways real easy. Season 7 was animated to lines recorded by Justin Roiland, and they're currently going through the dubbing process with the replacement(s), so the new voices can easily end up sounding more stilted and uncanny than they have to be. Take the stutters. I recently watched a clip from the German dub where Rick's VA replicated one of Justin Roiland's stutters and it sounded really unnatural. We also don't know yet if they insisted on one voice actor for both characters or went with two. Harder to find one person who can do spot-on impressions of both voices than two people who can do one each.>And will there indeed be a showdown between with Evil Rick or was it yet another huge red herring?
They're more openly committed to an overarching plot than they've ever been (not that it's saying much) and they still have 3 seasons to go per their contract after this one, so no, there won't be an epic, final showdown this early in the game. But they're definitely going to touch on that plot thread at least once though to keep up the illusion there's a big pot of gold at the end of the rainbow so many people have convinced themselves exists. I'm sort of one of them myself. The rational side of me knows the writing's too weak for the pay-offs to be good, but I still want to see how the show plays out, hoping for diamonds in the rough. If you've seen the episode titles, it's blatantly obvious #5 is going to be the token lore episode.>>36288>Rick was on the level of an undefeatable god in Season 1
Rick didn't become an epic, unbeatable, sci-fi demi-god until season 3. Rick was at hPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
