Rick and Morty is known for insane space adventures that take the titular uncle and nephew duo (and sometimes the rest of their depressing suburban family) into grotesque, weird, violent, and disturbing planets, galaxies, alternate timelines, and various other sci-fi landscapes. You might expect more of the same from the new Hulu animated series Solar Opposites since it hails from from Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and series writer Mike McMahan, especially since it follows a “family” of aliens stranded on Earth who are forced to deal with the dredges of humanity and suburban life. Even though the animation style, character design and sense of humor falls in line with Rick and Morty, this sidesplitting, raucously hilarious show brings something different to the table, delivering a quality, clever comedy that is somehow simultaneously darkly deranged and charmingly lighthearted.

If Rick and Morty doesn’t have enough animated sci-fi insanity for you to sink your teeth into, series co-creator Justin Roiland and former head writer Mike McMahan have a whole new series that you’ll probably want to watch on Hulu in May.
Solar Opposites is a new animated series following a group of aliens who barely escaped the destruction of their home world. Suddenly, they find themselves stranded on planet Earth, which they discover is a “human-infested craphole without a single redeeming value.” Yeah, that sounds about right.
