That was a searing disappointing finale.  But at least I was right and they never one-upped Pickle Rick.

Bring on the next batch.

I was kinda disappointed as well.
Still a fantastic season.

You like that? How about an over the top and thoroughly detailed reverse engineered recipe for it? The guy also has some actually worthwhile recipe versions.

Also I quite enjoyed the finale, I kind of get that they did the reset but we actually had a bit of character growth while getting back to the start. In that way it's been rushed but actually way better than most shows that go for putting the status quo back.

Babish is one of the only YouTube channels I watch every new video of. Him and Primitive Technology. Amazing channels.

Not sure how S1 is better to reset to than S2. I'll have to watch the series again to see, but I thought Beth was pretty hostile towards Jerry & Summer even then. This is a complete shift, regardless.

In so far as it serves as a starting-off point for adventures, who cares?  The show is better with a little more Jerry in our lives.

Still a fantastic season.

Season 3 was supposed to be longer, but was cut down to 10 episodes and the last episode was a little rushed to get the season story line back where they wanted for season 4.  Supposedly was Dan Harmon dropping the ball rather than network interference.  People were pointing out the Citadel of Ricks episode would have been better as a season ender, but that didn't wind up the divorce storyline.

Citadel of Ricks was my second favourite and actually really, really needed some closure.

So, yeah, it should have been the finale.

I don't get why Pickle Rick is so great for you all? It started well, but went pretty quickly down to 'inter-dimensional cable' level quality. Which is not what I enjoy best about R&M, anyhow.

I put it on par with most of the other good episodes and a bit below their best.

Pickle Rick was awesome in all the ways that make the show absurd fun.

As for the finale, I thought it was a bit rushed but that the circle back around to the reset actually fit with a lot of the themes of the season, such as the ending of Pickle Rick.

Well fuck, the Stonestown McDonald's is gonna have the Szechuan sauce (the only one in all of SF).

I'm guessing it'll be an utter shitshow of high school students but I kinda feel like I gotta head out there tomorrow just to witness the spectacle.

To be honest I mostly want the poster and a couple of empty sauce packets to commemorate this weird little moment in pop culture.

BTW in case any of you were wondering.. that McDonald's thing was TOTAL BS, and a huge bait & switch.

Me and a couple of friends went to our "participating" store, and they had no sauce, posters or anything. The clueless burger slinger at the restaurant near me was apologetic, and I assumed it was only my location that got stiffed, until I got home from there and saw it wasn't an isolated incident.

Restaurants got at most 20 packets of sauce, and many listed on their website weren't even participating (like the one near me that was visited). I was actually surprised there wasn't McDonald's stores being destroyed by riots after reading that this was not isolated, and happened nearly everywhere.

Huffpost article:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/mcdonalds-szechuan-rick-morty-fans-pissed_us_59d95604e4b046f5ad98aab3

I also tweeted angrily at McDonald's because of this, and get more upset the longer I think about the hundreds of thousands of Rick and Morty fans that McDonalds DUPED. Seriously wish I hadn't posted about it to you guys, and hope that none of you had a similar experience because of my post.

Yeah, I went out to the McD's near me that was allegedly participating and they had handmade signs taped up saying they were out of the chicken tenders and all "promotional materials" (ie the posters and the sauce).  I agree they fucked up what was otherwise a very clever move, I hadn't gone into a McDonald's with the intent of buying something for maybe a decade.  They must've had a lot of other people showing up to ask about the goddamn sauce which led to them putting the signs up; I even saw a few people walking around the mall with their Rick & Morty t-shirts.

Anyone want to bet that this packet never actually crossed the counter at McDonald's? That some of the participating stores that "never got" their sauce have managers obsessively reloading their PayPal page?

Yes, $176 Buy It Now for a single packet of sauce.

Now I hope McDonald's does another run of that sauce, in exactly the same packets, just so that anyone who paid $200 for one feels like a complete goddamn idiot.

Thy wish is granted. On mobile so I can’t link properly but they announced its rerelease this winter on their Twitter today.

I honestly think anybody who drove 4 hours for that sauce should be quietly ushered into the back and made into Soylent Green. WTF. I have made it a ton of times at home. It's fine.

Participating mcdonalds was 7 minute drive, compared to one 2 mins the opposite way (not on participating list).
