Does anyone in this sub have any fucking idea what nihilism really means or is it a circlejerk troll community for the disillusioned, troubled teen spirit?

The recent songs (Possibly album) might be the soundtrack for the movie.

Maybe there's no "event horizon ", maybe the simulation expands with our knowledge of the Universe.

Van's journey throughout the whole series was interesting, she just wanted to have fun but ended up disappointed. That's been happening to her for quite some time - in Value, when she went to dinner with her friend, she ended up having to talk about Earn and then had fun but ultimately ended up being fired the following day for events she enjoyed previously. In Helen, she weny there to have fun, hopefully with Earn, and she did but ended up having to play ping-pong for her relationship against a guy who wasn't even pretending to put in an effort. In Champagne Papi, she was with her friends about to have fun but she got stuck having to babysit one of them, and then she lost her and had to worry then try to find her. She met a guy who seemed to be nice but started to seem kinda creepy and desperate. She went into Drake's closet, talked to his grandfather seemingly forgetting how the night didn't go as planned, but then she went outside and saw Darius - an Earn reminder and an Earn witness to her failed attempt at stuntin' (even though Darius is above that). Even in The Jacket, she was having a really ideal happy family night but then Earn left at the end.

She just can't catch a break. She is clearly trying but the puzzle is made of a million pieces and non of them fit together. Her character seems strong and unbothered, she keeps trying nonetheless. Stressed out by the drug test at school, she still got up to care for Lottie. Lost her job, still pushing for opportunities at that Juneteenth party. She's a symbol for strength and perseverance. I hope she finds what she's hoping for, in herself, in Earn, in the world.

She wasnt forced to play ping pong against earn for their relationship that was all her idea. She shouldve known that earn wouldnt be about a german culture festival with creepy racist white people, but instead of admitting that mistake she blamed him. Could he have put more effort in? Maybe, but the ping pong was all her

  1. Earn proposed the ping pong game.
  2. Earn should've known she wouldn't want to go to a strip club and watch naked women on a night that was reserved for them, but instead he just wanted to stunt and didn't care how Van felt. Yes, Van could've left the strip club if she wasn't comfortable, but Earn could've left the festival instead of sulking. If Van is supposed to just know, Earn should also just know.

He proposed ping pong so they could have time alone together, she proposed playing for their relationship

He did it to decide whether they should dance or leave the festival.

Could've picked it up along the way. It was a long time in-between those episodes, I think Rick is capable of learning new stuff, just like he did when that virus spread in S01E06.

They were trying to get the 70 episodes contract. Had to make the show more marketable, hence the pickle Rick episode, vindicators, froopy land, that McDonald's sauce thing. Had to get the fans crazy so they could convince Adult Swim to dish out a long term contract. Still a great season though.

That line from S01E08 connected with me on another level.

I think you just are lowkey hard for Amanda Crew and want her in more scenes. Which is perfectly fine! 😂 But come on...do you think ANY of these characters are that depthful. You understand their motives, you root for them, yell at them when they make stupid decisions and cry when those decisions bite them in the ass. That's all I need from this show and to be quite honest, I think every character, at this point, has had their due which is why I was hoping they would've just ended it here instead of dragging it on for another season. If anything, I want Jared and Richard's whole relationship expanded on. Let's see what we could milk out of that if we're developing/adding unnecessary dynamics/characters. Fuck it, it's the final season!

Lol ...😔 I need to evaluate the "lowkey hard for Amanda Crew" line... I'd be really dissapointed if that was it, and not just wanting her character arc expanded.

It very well could be. And I don't blame you, she's hands down my girl crush, too. 😉 And I do see what you're saying and wouldn't mind if she was pushed more to the forefront next season but it would have to be natural and not feel too forced. I loved her and Gilfoyle's bond. Although I do believe that she is a lot like Bighead where she has her moments but isn't interesting enough to go off on her own side story. Pairing her up with another character like Gilfoyle would be the wisest decision. Not to point fingers either but you do also have to keep in mind the main demographic of this show...

How do you continue on normally when you've lived, and believed, someone's life for 55 years? You become a high school football star, fall in love and marry your high school sweetheart, start a family, and beat cancer. Only to wake up to your granddad saying it was all fake, your actually life was that one dream weird dream you had as a child, before puberty.

After all that, you go on these adventures where your perception of reality is continuosly fucked with. How do you trust you're really in your reality? Morty just keeps getting up and moving forward.

Morty would make a fucked up 21 year old. When he's older Rick probably won't even be there to, at least, be a constant in all this madness.

Which memories are removed? Which are kept? Are there really any good memories with Rick? They saved that town from the peanut king but he almost raped him.

In the second episode of Season 2, Jerry says "This is the 8th to the last straw", 8 episodes past (to the first episode of Season 3) and he decides to make Beth choose between him and Rick.

Jerry possibly riches his last straw when, in season 2 finale, Rick makes them fugitives. As usual, it didn't matter because he ended up back with Beth, with Rick still in the house. The meaningless nature of the Universe is evident in all the characters on the Show.

That makes sense, but why in the first episode did Van say to Earn “tell me you love me”

To see if it's more than just "it's better for Lottie". To see if Earn values her enough to, at least, lie. In the original script for the Pilot (the script online), it said "she planned that" after Van tells Earn she has a date later.

As soon as someone excels at something else you assume they can't do both. K.Dot about to be the Andre 3000 of my generation. Just like Andre, we'll only call him great when he stops doing all of this because his absence is felt.

They give an impression of a lot going on without us knowing, we never really saw what it was like when Earn stayed with Al and Darius. We get to fill those gaps with our imagination, and it makes it easier for throwback episodes like Fubu (and I suspect 'Babershop' as well). The characters age as we age, grow as we grow, and develop simultaneously in front of us and behind the scenes. What makes it an experience (and not just a show) is the fact that we can fill in those time gaps with our own perception of the show and its characters.

That's why there's not much of a rush when when it's off-season, there's no need for the continuity of 'Who killed who', we'll just guess and wait. I think we might not see the Euro tour, just the outcome of the events at the airport.

Stephen Glover likes the absurd, embraces it. Donald Glover makes tragedy look casual, like it's the norm, so not to panic at its presence. Stefani Robinson narrates human nature objectively. Simultaneously embracing the absurd and making tragedy the norm.

Juneteenth, Value, Barbershop, and Woods are my favourite episodes. They work well at surface level as funny with the added meta Atlanta experience, and they do a great job of expressing human nature from a black narrative. I might be reading too much into this. They even have significant moments if revelation for the character involved - Alfred's internal conflicts on Woods, Van out with her friend without relating to Earn's narrative, revealing how she views herself in the relationship on Value, Van and Earn's relationship with each other and the outside world on Juneteenth, and Alfred's fear of change on Barbershop.

I think those are the episodes she directed not wrote, right? She wrote Juneteenth and cowrote Value.

She hasn't been credited for directing any episodes. She produced on some of them, I think, if not all of Season 2.

Stefani Robinson became my idol after this season. I made a twitter so I could follow her lol. Her creativity as a writer reminds me a lot of Donald.

She's so casual about it, the storylines are part of normal dialogue but they say so much more. Like if the Trojan horse was realistic and everyone admired it for being a beautiful, but on a closer look it carried more.

He's seen so much shit, the basicness of C-137 doesn't bother him. He literally has bigger to fish to 'fry' in Atlantis.

Morty is all of us, we want to believe our somewhat nihilist thoughts are similar to Rick, but they are similar to Morty. We've spent so much time with Rick, we start to think like him bit become him. In this essay...

Whatever you make it. Everyone has a different purpose in life and therefore will find a different meaning.

Original Poster2 points · 24 days ago

Wouldn't that mean there's no meaning? You just do what you want, not what's meant for you.

How would you know ‘what is meant for you’?

You don't. Logically, that might mean it doesn't exist. I can feel myself trapping myself in an infinite loop of uncertainty.

To me, the advice was similar to the one he got from the running baboon. The running might not always work or feel good, but you have to do it everyday. It worked for him, it stoped him from committing suicide, and it's why he keeps trying to find this happiness even though it continues to elude him

I can't tell the difference between him being sober, drunk, or high. When he met Teddy Perkins, at the party with Van, when he's just chilling with Alfred - still the same Darius, just different variations of high. I might be wrong, fix me.

Rick might just have a long monologue about it, maybe Morty might be rage in from his "filter of your comfort monologue"
