Style so avant-garde it makes normies and art thots implode Uses depression as a cheap excuse for forced drama Uses juvenile nihilism as an excuse for lack of effort Extremely quotable and memorable dialogue Destroys the fabric of reality in every episode Too afraid to completely step outside of it's status Forgettable and trendy memefest Multiple viewings are obligatory to try and comprehend it. quio Flanderization Formulaic predictability becomes even more noticeable on rewatches Poses questions to challenge the fabric of human nature TH PAIN It's actually funny Forces memes all the time. Overstays it's welcome "We gotta *burp ..we-we- we gotta go to space Morty" Explores dozens of different themes every episode without spoonfeeding you anything Lasts exactly for as long a it needs to Gradually lost momentum and will only get worse as it continues "lmao everyone is dumb but me wake up sheeple Leaves a profound mark in it's viewers despite short length Profound characterizations Fanbase full of edgy manchildren who feel persecuted. Only true patricians can appreciate it Genuinely educating in it's subject matter,
