I was responding to the assertion that fans of the show "should feel bad".

It's saturated with self loathing, and built on sardonic, and overtly nihilistic themes. It's not all, or even mostly bad feelings, but they're in there.

It's also engaging, and layered, but it gets some misplaced defensiveness from it's audience. It's a crass, cartoon comedy. Fans should enjoy that it's a dumb cartoon show, and not try to hype it for something it's not.

Oh, I think at least some of the shows audience, at large, has shown themselves to completely miss the point and be pretty awful. The sort of people who watch Fight Club and conclude that starting a fight club is a good idea.
... with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet.

Any show can have hyper sensitive, awful, offensive fans. Even kids' shows with no offensive content. Like My Little Pony has all the dude-bros watching now. Anyways, I think it is just a crass cartoon show, and not to set one's hopes high. I've only seen one episode I love and the rest were lukewarm. It's not for everyone because of its absurdity and crudeness. And the sci fi bits tend to fly way, way over my head. <3 You Rick and Morty. F-Forever and ever a hundred years....
