With robots, parallel universes, technology run dangerously rampant, and an excellent group of five characters to watch as things get weird, the first season of Rick and Morty was one of the best science fiction shows on TV. Created by Justin Roiland (who voices both lead characters) and Dan Harmon, the series is like a super-twisted version of Back to the Future in which Doc is drunk, cocky, and astonishingly brilliant, and Marty is a shy and cautious kid.
With all that established, I’m hoping the second season will be the best sci-fi show on TV, full stop. The first big Rick and Morty S2 trailer is here, and you can watch below to see how crazy things might get. Read More »

I joked a few days ago about how one of the only reasons people seem to watch The Simpsons lately is the occasional use of guest artists for a couch gag opening. And now Rick and Morty, the show created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon (which also happens to be one of the best, funniest, and sickest animated shows ever to air on television) has invaded The Simpsons and, yep, I love it.
This Rick and Morty Simpsons couch gag is somehow not even as messed up as some of the other wild couch gags by artists like Banksy and Don Hertzfeldt, but it is a spot-on combination of the two shows. Read More »
After Dan Harmon was canned from Community but before he was re-hired for Community, he went to work on an animated series for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Harmon and Justin Roiland (Fish Hooks, and who also voices Morty) created Rick and Morty, a show about the crazed life of “a sociopathic scientist who drags his unintelligent grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.” All of which sounds, well, pretty great.
The TV premiere is in a few days, but you can watch the first episode online right now. Read More »
