    The animation, overseen by art director James McDermott, is fresh, colorful and as wacky as the script.

    If the second episode can build even more on the insanity of the first, then Rick And Morty has the potential to be a versatile, entertaining comedy.

    Rick and Morty won't get us any closer to a workable definition of Harmon's genius, but at least it clarifies that the unhinged quality that Community once had wasn't accidental.

    Between the funny characters and the endless possibilities of worlds the two can visit, Rick and Morty has plenty of places to go.

    In the golden age of narrative TV, cartoons offer countervailing subversive pleasures: They're juvenile, satiric, surreal. Those words all apply to the wild spree Rick and Morty. [23 Dec 2013]

    While Rick and Morty isn’t necessarily the stuff dreams are made of, in its buoyant flights of fancy, it does betray a welcome attempt to dream just a little bigger.

    Best new cartoon currently on TV. Can't praise it enough.
    I've watched each episode several times over which is something I rarely do, especially for cartoons.

    The Back to the Future feel of the show is definitely intentional -- and it works so well. The writing is so clever and full of inside SCI-FI references. The insane storylines and twists are some of the best comedy writing I've ever seen. The characters are instantly recognized in their roles.

    So glad the show was picked up for a second season. Kudos to Dan Harmon on another funny, imaginative and entertaining series.

The first episode of this show already has me hooked and I cannot wait to see were Rick and Morty go next on their adventures. Granted, it may not be the funniest TV show, but funny nonetheless. Its charm and animation will be the major factors in reeling you in to watch, trust me. Like I said, I am already hooked just by the first episode, and if that does not show this shows impact, then I do not know what will.

    Basically, if you watched and enjoyed the movie series "Back to the Future" and the TV show "Futurama," you should have no problem adjusting to and enjoying this show. The shows two main characters are Rick and Morty. Rick is Morty's grandfather whom is obsessed with science, drinking alcohol, and is seriously a fantastic nod to Doc Brown from "Back to the Future." Morty is Rick's grandson who is constantly dragged into Rick's experiments and adventures.

    Overall, a fantastic, charming show!

    The best - Show - Ever.

    I have watched over 60 series and hundreds of movies. This is definitely Top 5 of everything. Thanks for their creators, hope they can keep up the great standard of the series.

Roiland's voice work as Rick needs some work, the constant belching is off-putting in a way that I'm not sure was intended. Expand

    Overall, a really fantastic show.

    Somehow Rick and Morty manages to deliver undeniable hilarity without devolving into the mindless stupidity that sometimes plagues adult swim cartoons.

    Additionally, the show actually demonstrates a real depth of character in its titular characters. Episode 6 in particular did an excellent job of articulating how desensitized Rick is to essentially everything apart from morty and how Morty isn't just a cartoon caricature of an american teenager.

My favourite episode is Pickle Rick, the scene that I like was when he was in the sewers and he had a fight with some rats. He killed them and use their limbs to make a better version of himself, when he tried to get out he ended up in some secret mansion. They called him (solenya) Russian for pickle, they were scared of him and what he could do it was really funny to watch. The best bit was when the main bad guy killed his 2 friends and made a run for it to the helipad pad. However, Rick was on it and a guy called Jaguar who they kept locked up, when they were starting to fly of rick throw a match down on to some fuel that led to a fuse to some bombs. When the building started to blow up the main bad guy went on to his knees and said “fair well solenya”. Expand
