The lesson here is applicable in many situations. Don't look for further interaction with the people who create the things you like, because they may well ruin it with their stupidity.Anyone who saw that episode could've told you that. God what a shit season.
Never watched Rick and Morty, but not gonna lie, this doesn't sound like a premise that would make me kill myself.Jessica Gao landed a pilot deal for an untitled comedy about “a first-generation Chinese-American woman who struggles to set healthy boundaries with her crazy, exhausting family. When her wealthy grandmother dies and names Janet the sole inheritor, she suddenly finds herself the unwilling new matriarch of the family she’s spent her life trying to keep at arm’s length.”
Seriously? Best writing in 2017? There's far better episodes in Season 3 than that, like "The Ricklantis Mixup" or the first episode of Season 3.
Seriously. The shitty side of the fanbase has warped how people feel about this episode to such a degree that I think people just want to hate it for any reason.It's babby's first sci-fi anthology for 16 year olds who shop at Target. The episode was perfectly fine for what it was, you're probably mistaking how you feel about the actual writing for how you feel about the 30 year olds on Reddit getting Pickle Rick tattoos.
I disagree, Television writers don't make more than 6 figures in Hollywood, ones who work on a cable cartoon undoubtedly make less. The real money is being a creator of a TV Show. If her TV Show lasts for several seasons which is likely because ABC is a godawful comedy network she'll be a multi-millionaire in a few years.Seriously.

It feels like an above average episode compared to some of the other episodes in that season, and it still attempts to tackle some of the larger themes the show has been setting up for a while. I legitimately enjoyed the episode when I watched it on air, and I have a feeling most everyone did too. The only change is that the braindead masses ran the 'meme' into the ground, and surprise surprise, now it's fashionable to shit on this particular episode despite the show being immensely popular otherwise. The fact that the writer was a woman just added oil to the incel fire.
As for the writer leaving, if she wasn't being harrassed personally, I can't fathom why you would leave one of the most talked about shows on the planet for some "Fresh Off the Boat" dogshit spinoff. Literally one of the only Adult Swim shows to break into the mainstream fully and you'd walk away? After Adult Swim orders SEVENTY EPISODES?
Awesome career decision m8.
So All American Girl was a clusterfuck. Margaret Cho had no control over it. It’s one of those shows that says “based off of the standup of Margaret Cho” during the credits, but it’s not. I think one of the most fucked up parts was that they thought the Asian cast members weren’t authentic enough so they brought in an Asian consultant to tell them how to act more Asian. Gao’s show sounds interesting, though. I might watch it.The writer responsible for the second worst Rick and morty meme is leaving! Oh no! Fingers crossed her celestial sitcom isn't as insulting to Asians as Margaret Cho's.
So most TV shows have a writer’s room where they all pitch ideas but the showrunners have full control. They assign writers various episodes so they can focus on the big picture and it makes the process quicker. The showrunners have final say on the writer’s episode. So think of the writers as the babysitters and the showrunners are the parents. So Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon are even more to blame than Gao in case you didn’t like the episode.
Factual and redpilled. I recall seeing a promo video short from Adult Swim(not sure I could find it again but it's out there) where Harmon discussed the making of Season 3 episodes one at a time and it's basically a challenge Dan & Justin gave to each other about "I dare you to turn this fucktarded idea into an actual episode, is it possible?" and it turned out halfway-decent. And the asian chick is absolutely not credited verbally in any way.
