If you happened to go to McDonald’s Oct. 7, you may have heard several angry remarks of “I’m pickle Rick,” or “Where’s my Szechuan sauce, I need my Szechuan sauce,” coming from the fans of the late night Adult Swim Sci-Fi comedy “Rick and Morty,” which just finished its third season. The season ended its year and a half pause April 1 for the season premiere, and the rest of the season took place from August to October.

This season kicked off with a surprise April Fools episode consisting of Rick breaking out of federal intergalactic prison and Jerry and Beth getting a divorce from their toxic marriage, and Rick saying, “Get ready for the darkest year of our adventures.” And dark this season has been while “Rick and Morty” have had their most self-aware season yet thanks to the delayed wait for the season. Creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon spent so much time working on the season to ensure it was perfect, and what we got was a season of intense plot lines with deeper meanings aside from just adventures.

In episodes like ‘Pickle Rick,’ it showed how no matter how smart you are, the choices you make are yours and you are the master of your own universe. This went along with the theme for the rest of the season, explaining no matter what you do, you are less than .00001 percent and it doesn’t matter. Like at all.

This season over all impressed me with just how crazy a show can be and yet be very relatable, like having to switch from mom’s to dad’s house on weekends. “Rick and Morty” now prepares for yet another long break before reaching the fourth season of the series, so anyone can catch up. I highly suggest that you do.
