    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.

Both episodic and with an overall progressing storyline, it's a great balance ofRick and Morty is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. Both episodic and with an overall progressing storyline, it's a great balance of all types of episodes, that, due to it's sci-fi-multiverse nature can introduce any character or plot-line limited only by the writer's imagination. Some of the best episodes I've probably watched 10 or 15 time, and have watched through the whole series at least a couple of times. The humor in it is often crude, and certainly won't be for everyone, but if you aren't instantly turned off by it in the first couple episodes, you'll probably end up a serious fan by the end of episode 6.

Due to it looking likeI saw this show back in 2013, and I tried it for about 5 minutes and then chucked it... I completely misunderstood it. Due to it looking like SuperJail, which I tried as well and was turned off by the humor I assumed R&M had the same oddball humor... I was wrong completely wrong. On a whim, I gave R&M another shot, and I'm blown away. The writing for this show is too good, almost to the fault of the show's reputation of storylines. The first 2 episodes are somewhat general audience, and then it finds it's niche around episode 3. I was completely owned by this show at Robodog.. and then I was a superfan at MeSeeks. I can honestly say that this is my favorite show, of all times. I love the characters, the writing, the voice acting, and the art. I was scared that because it was an Adult Swim show that it wouldn't get appropriate love, and most importantly I was concerned that the creators would jump ship should something more lucrative would come (assuming Adult Swim with it's small audience couldn't provide wealth). I'm thrilled that season 2 is a go... although the Wikipedia states there is not much continuity I feel that there is just enough. I don't want to give anything away, I'll just say the writing is just perfect, and has the improv comedy is there as well which lends itself a sense of life. 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.

The very first episode has a 'carry something up your butt to avoid customs' bit. You know, really high brow subtle humor there. I am sitting here not laughing and thinking Family Guy had more subtle humor, and no one would call that show subtle. Not a good show. Expand
