    Season 4 of Rick and Morty is giving us a brand new, deeper look into the mind of our favorite genius, Rick Sanchez. Throughout the run of the show, people have speculated about what's going on with the smartest man in the universe. Today, I have gathered all the data I need to really dissect his brain. I think we may all have judged Rick a little too fast... or did we?

          Matthew remember the "How to Water Bend" episode?

            As a diagnosed depressive I can tell you it's not constantly rooted in feeling inadequate. Rick doesn't feel inadequate. He feels like the last human left alive on a planet of poop flinging monkeys.

                                              Hey, MatPat. This is quite a out of place comment to leave under a Rick and Morty episode, but I don't know where else to put it. I just want to request a possible theory on the movie Away. It's quite interesting and about an hour long. Review it if you wish, I don't know if it's already available for you, but here is a trailer:
