A while back, I read a tweet that said something like “Rick and Morty has more ideas in a single episode than most series do in a whole season”. (I wish I could find that tweet, but I can’t.) [UPDATE! Chris R found it, and here it is!]
That claim caught my imagination, so I watched the first season. You should watch it, too.
I will admit that Rick and Morty is crude and offensive. It’s also endlessly inventive — that tweet wasn’t exaggerating — and sometimes extremely dark. And it’s probably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Some of the humour is entirely juvenile — there is a minor character called Mr. Poopybutthole — some of it very sophisticated. And all of it is thrown together into a single huge blend so you never know whether the next thing coming at you is going to be a grotesque insult, a philosophical insight, a laugh-out-loud gag or a bring-you-up-short character moment.
Highly, highly recommended.
