Rick and Morty is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen and that’s pretty much all there is to it.
Rick is an elderly, eccentric, hyper-intelligent and often drunk scientific genius who has the mind and tools necessary to make or break entire universes…
… and Morty is his grandson.
Rick and Morty follows a similar formula to The Simpsons in that you don’t need to watch the episodes in a particular order, you can just jump in mid-series. However, you cannot jump into Rick and Morty mid-episode.
Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon (the creators) have managed to expertly craft each episode to take the situation from A to B to Three Point Purple and to have it all make sense… but only if you see the setup and everything which builds up to Three Point Purple.
It really does not matter which episodes you watch because unlike Family Guy or South Park where the episodes differ in quality, Rick and Morty is consistently brilliant and it’s consistently accessible.
You do have to suspend a little disbelief but when you do, Rick and Morty does a very good job of explaining its own ridiculousness.
It’s one of the smartest shows I’ve ever seen, one of the best science fiction shows I’ve ever seen, one of the best animated shows I’ve ever seen and in general, one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. You should absolutely give Rick and Morty a go on Netflix if you haven’t already.
What did you think of the first two seasons of Rick and Morty? Are you aching for Season 3 to just air already?
