With the highly anticipated fourth season of Rick and Morty just around the corner, both new and old fans are either catching up, rewatching, or watching the show for the first time. While discussing which episode is best can leaded to heated debates at a minimum, SEMrush, an online visibility management and content marketing SaaS platform, took a look at Google searches and discovered which episodes people are looking for the most.
If we’re to believe that these search numbers correlate to overall popularity, then the Season 3 finale, “The Rickchurian Mortydate,” where Rick got into a feud with the president and Beth started to think she was a clone, ranked number one.
On average this year, the Top 5 most Googled Rick and Morty episodes are:
- The Rickchurian Mortydate (Season 3, Episode 10)
- Pilot (Season 1, Episode 1)
- The Rickshank Redemption (Season 3, Episode 1)
- Season 4 Episode 1
- Pickle Rick (Season 3, Episode 3)
IGN said of “The Rickchurian Mortydate” that, the preview teaser suggested that this episode would be framed around Rick and Morty’s efforts to rid the Kennedy Sex Tunnels of a deadly creature. As it turned out, though, everything in that teaser was covered in the first minute or so here. Instead of giving us another ‘Rick and Morty accept a mission from the President’ tale a la ‘Get Schwifty,’ the writers crafted a conflict where the President himself was the villain. Though only a villain in the sense that he finally got fed up with playing second fiddle to the world’s most powerful and egotistical super-scientist. Can you really blame the guy?”
