Fans of Adult Swim's Rick and Morty had been counting down the months and days until Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's animated mayhem returned to their screens once more. That wait ended early last month with season premiere "Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat" (reviewed here), where we got a crash course in "death crystals" and gained a deeper understanding of just how hard it would be to kill Rick Sanchez – and keep his dead. Which lead to "One Crew Over the Crewcoo's Morty", which "heisted" our minds in such a way that it made it our favorite episode of the season so far (check out our review here). "Rick and Morty" season 4, episode 4 "Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim's Morty": Special Ricktims Morty Morty gets a dragon in this one broh. From the Upfronts earlier in the summer, there was the announcement of season 4 with an accompanying video (see below), and red carpet interviews with Harmon and Roiland that teased (jokingly?) a Rick and Morty future with Daniel Radcliffe and Kanye West in it.
Buckle in for disappointment because there's no way these episodes will be good enough for how long you waited. Rick and Morty is the Emmy-award-winning half-hour animated hit comedy series on Adult Swim that follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Rick and Morty stars Justin Roiland (Adventure Time), Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), and Spencer Grammer (Greek). In October, fans learned the titles of this season's opener as well as the following four episodes via an Adult Swim reveal video – and Harmon and Roiland's Rick and Morty "Pun Fu" is strong this season… Many of us that were hoping to settle down and curl up to the newest episode of Rick and Morty last night were left hugely disappointed. Instead of viewing Episode 4 of Season 4, those who tuned in to Adult Swim were subjected to a repeat instead.
Fans then had to wait two years for the following season and another two years for the third. Rick went out of his way to prove why movie-style heists are lame in the latest episode of Rick And Morty and destroyed anyone who got in his way. One Crew over the Crewcoo's Morty is another episode of Rick ruining Morty's future dreams, one over-the-top method at a time. The episode had both characters on a tomb-raiding adventure where Rick went into a fit of rage after finding out his precious loot had been stolen by heist artist Miles Knightly – voiced by Justin Theroux. In the first look photos, we saw Rick in full heist gear (because it's not a heist unless everyone's wearing tight and stealthy outfits) ready to prove to everyone why Miles is a fraud and why Morty needs to stop obsessing over the 'heist movie script' he'd been writing for a while.
Grammer is currently putting the finishing touches to the second half of season 4, having recently finished recording episode 10. It was one of the show's creators Justin Roiland who initially promised fans 10 episodes in season four. Fans have been loving the fourth season of the hit cartoon. And if the producers had their way, we would be enjoying much more Rick and Morty than the 10 episodes we're getting - although the possibility of extra episodes may be hampered by the creators promising 14 episodes for season three, but only delivering 10 in the end. The preview for the next episode of Rick and Morty is now online after a long week off. The official Rick and Morty Twitter account released the preview for the next installment on Monday. It teased an episode about Morty mismanaging a pet dragon which Rick then had to slay. It's the Morty gets a dragon episode. Check out a new episode of #RickandMorty on Sunday at 11:30pm ET on @adultswim pic.twitter.com/tNzYej4kd7 — Rick and Morty (@RickandMorty) December 2, 2019 This episode includes one of the stand-out lines of the original Season 4 trailer, where Summer asks Rick if he is going to "slay" the dragon. Many fans are hoping for some more Rick and Summer adventures in the near future, and given the absence of Morty from this preview, we may be getting one this week. Rick and Morty Season 4 is one of the most highly-anticipated shows of this year. Already, we have gotten three episodes that fans are in love with, and there are two more on the way before the midseason break. This is just the beginning, as Rick and Morty was renewed with a 70-episode order last year. Rick and Morty Season 4, Episode 4, "Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim's Morty" premieres on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 11:30 p.m. ET on Adult Swim. HIT play and listen to GroupChat's new Episode 14!
