Welcome to the world of Rick and Morty, a genius inventor grandfather and his less than genius grandson. Missing for nearly 20 years, Rick arrives at his daughter's doorstep looking to move in, but her husband isn't too thrilled. Rick converts the garage into his lab and involves Morty in his insane adventures.

This is the best adult-oriented cartoon series I've ever seen in my 62 years. It offers a wonderful sense of ironic truth to family relationships, politics, and human behavior; it applies a wonderful a sense of creativity to both science and science-fiction, focusing on the "many worlds" theory of parallel universes and Rick's unique ability to access ALL of them, with all of the variations forming an extended family of unlimited number. The "alien" societies, races, and technologies Rick has access to opens up the imagination to further humor, to the extent which can be anthropomorphized to our limited human understanding. The humor is fresh, insightful, and sometimes heartbreaking in its ability to cut to the core of human frailness, and delightfully still manages to surprise me.
Rick and Morty is in essence one of the greatest series Adult Swim has ever created, it's up there along with The Boondocks and Moral Orel and the like. This has got to be one of the greatest Sci-Fi comedies ever written since Futurama's original airing. It's intelligent, funny, and raunchy in all the right ways. Over the course of 11 episodes you see these character personalities come out very well, anyone can easily somewhat relate to at least one character and sympathize with many of them if not all of them. If I could describe the series: It's Back to the Future meets Dr. Who meets Lost in Space meets Peabody's Improbable History all thrown into a martini blender, and what comes out is a very unusually tasting but still pleasing to the pallet concoction.
Do yourself a favor and get this when it comes out.
Great show. Deserves 5 stars. I am writing because of a review that claimed amazon lied. Amazon did not lie; this does not come with a digital copy and does not say it on the packaging ... https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/RKLBT7R3E3KXZ/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00LOWJ6JY
I've been watching cartoons my whole life, and this is the first one since Archer that just blows you away from the start. The humor is edgy, scientific (though as a microbiology student they should have known E. coli is not a bacteriophage), and it will keep you wanting more. The more recent episode kind of had a futurama feel by ending on a rather serious note. I see a bright future in store for this series. 100 times Rick and Morty!
My life had grown dull and monotonous. I didn't know what the point of each day was. Then I stumbled upon Rick and Morty. Now my life is exciting and full of adventure and belching! Do I recommend Rick and Morty? Absolutely. Absolutely. If you enjoy the outlandish made up science of Dr. Who, the crude humor of South Park\Aqua Teen Hunger Force\Family Guy, and the amazingly random creativity of Adventure Time, then you like a lot of good sh!t. Check out Rick & Morty.

All, a hundred days Rick and Morty forever a hundred times. Over and over Rick and Morty adventures dot com W W W dot Rick and Morty dot com W W W Rick and Morty adventures all hundred years. Every minute Rick and Morty dot com W W W hundred times Rick and Morty dot com.
Hilarious. Best cartoon ever. I don't think it'll last as long as the Simpsons, but I didn't enjoy the Simpsons enough to keep up with it either.
Rick and Morty is like all the best parts of Futurama, South Park, the Venture Bros, and Family Guy / American Dad all in one cartoon.
More philosophically, I think Rick and Morty actually touches on some subtle but very important aspects of the human condition that are overlooked in lots of sci-fi and futurist imaginings. Particularly in the theoretical reality of many sentient and very different races, and the possibility of multi-dimensional interference in our base reality. Someone could probably write a paper on that, but I'm not gonna. Rick hasn't either, that should tell you something.
