That was one of my original complaints. Summer, Jerry, and Beth are all voiced by professionals. Rick and Morty are voiced by the show creator. He's not a particularly good voice actor.

Re: the smallbox moving picture with sound thread (telly vision)

I wrapped up season 2 last night. It's decent, I'm going to finish it, but I don't think it is particularly great. It's certainly not as clever or well made as Archer. It's a study in nihilism and I just don't find that particularly appealing.

The inside sources sure seem to be in Biden’s operation, so maybe he’s right.

Re: POLITICS MOTHERFUCKER

Poll numbers show that Kamala remains unpopular and administration officials keep leaking damaging materials about her to a media that appears curiously eager to run with them. The campaign is the work of Biden’s allies who have calculated that the more they weaken Kamala, the less likely their bos...

Re: the smallbox moving picture with sound thread (telly vision)

The episode where Rick, Morty, and Summer all got out of temporal sync was the first one that I thought was pathbreaking.

Re: the smallbox moving picture with sound thread (telly vision)

So I'm halfway through season two of Rick and Morty and I've noticed a couple of things:

1. The house party at the end of season one appears to have been meant to set up future shenanigans.
2. There was a marked increase in writing quality from Season 1 to Season 2.

Well, the good news I enjoy him on screen Yeah, he was a lot of fun. I've never seen him in anything before, but I'm guessing he probably has a lot of range. Given who the character is, we're likely to see multiple versions of him. He's in Lovecraft Country Yeah I know, I'm just not a huge fan of h...

A couple of thoughts about Loki: It's kind of a shame that Jonathan Majors' casting as Kang in the next Antman had already been announced.

Re: POLITICS MOTHERFUCKER

There’s a small group of Very Online Left writers I regularly read to kept abreast of cutting edge progressive thought. Elie Mystal is one of those writers.

It’s kind of a shame though. He’s a decent writer and he understands the law. Unfortunately he’s let himself be twisted by rage. :(
