Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block Adult Swim. The series follows the misadventures of cynical mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his good-hearted but fretful grandson Morty Smith, who split their time between domestic life and interdimensional adventures.It’s hard to imagine a show as complex, vast, and emotionally raw as Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty. Whether it’s hearing stories about how smart and hysterical it is or odd stories about Szechuan sauce and catchphrases like “wubba lubba dub dub,” there’s a lot to jump on board with from the get-go. As a result, it may be tough for newcomers to get into Rick and Morty without bouncing clean off the fandom and subject matter. However, the series is incredibly smart and absolutely hysterical, and it doesn’t look like the conversation around Rick and Morty is going away any time soon. In other words, it’s worth wading through the complexities of this fantastic show to become a bona fide fan.
