5.0 out of 5 starsBest New Sci-Fi Comedy
Verified purchase
Rick and Morty has to be the best new sci-fi comedy in years. The animation is awesome and the writing is extremely clever. Each episode takes Rick and Morty on a new adventure that feels like a mix of Doctor Who and Futurama, but with a lot more crueler humor. Rick and Morty has to be one of the funniest shows in years, and it will crack you up.
Special Features Include:
11 Audio Commentaries with creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, plus various others.

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Show, Speaks Volumes about the Human Condition
Verified purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 starsDark, irreverant humor. Not for those with delicate sensibilities.
Verified purchase
I caught this show "on demand" because I had been hearing random references to it and figured I would give it a shot. Wow. I watched all the available on-demand episodes and then added the show itself to my DVR. The completely irreverent and supremely dark humor is right up my alley. I wouldn't call it "smart" humor as quite a bit of it really are fart jokes, but it is definitely not for the d!ck and fart joke crowd either.

There wasn't a single episode in the season that I thought was lacking, which is pretty awesome for a first season. There are jokes that carry over from episode to episode, so it is totally worth it to watch the show from start to finish in order. The viewer is definitely rewarded for being a loyal viewer.

5.0 out of 5 starsRick and Morty Forever
Verified purchase
Rick Sanchez, a flask swigging, morally relativistic, quantum party animal and super-genius inventor, has returned after a lengthy absence to live with his daughter Beth, an equine surgeon, her insecure, unemployed husband Jerry Smith, their impressionable teenage daughter Summer, and their nervous, fretful adolescent son Morty. Rick has enlisted Morty to be his wing man and fellow adventurer in a series of inter-dimensional, trans-temporal, and routinely hair-raising capers.
Belching, stammering, chin perpetually slathered with drool, Rick occupies himself crafting marvels in the family garage for his own amusement from household odds and ends and exotic minerals from other worlds, exposing himself and Morty to a googolplex of dangers, with warning advisories typically issued just after the nick of time.
"I know that new situations can be intimidating." Rick assures his grandson. "You're looking' around and it's all scary and different. But, you know, meeting them head on, charging right into them like a bull, that's how we grow as people. I'm no stranger to scary situations. I deal with them all the time. Now, if you stick with me, Morty, you're gonna be… Holy crap, Morty! Run! I've never seen that thing before in my life. I don't know what the hell it is. We gotta get out of here, Morty! It's gonna kill us. We're gonna die!"
Rick is not merely the smartest man on earth. He is the smartest man in the universe. He has fashioned a handheld device to twist open portals to an infinity of parallel universes. In the infinity of timelines every possible Rick or Morty does or does not exist. Regardless where his portals lead him, Rick's wave function rarely collapses from uncertainty.
He is impatient and unsparing. "There is no God, Summer." Rick coaches his granddaughter. "You gotta rip that bandaid off now. You'll thank me later."
Rick invents a miniature robot with artificial intelligence to pass him the table butter. "What is my purpose?" the robot asks. "You pass butter," Rick says. "Oh, my God," the robot slumps in despair.
When alien parasites attempt to populate the earth by assuming affable characters and implanting bogus fond memories of themselves in their human hosts, Rick must lock down the Smith house to stymie the confusing proliferation of invaders.
"Dad, why does our house have blast shields?" his daughter inquires in surprise.
"Trust me, Beth. You don't want to know how many answers that question has."
Landing on a planet to refill the windshield wipers on his space traveling car, Rick informs Morty. "It's a purge planet. They're peaceful. And then, you know, they just purge."
Morty: "Tha… that's horrible!"
Rick: "Yeah. You wanna check it out?"
Some of Rick's inventions run off the rails with catastrophic results. A love potion he gives Morty to help him seal a romance triggers a storm of rabid suitors for Morty's attention and Rick's concoction to offset the love portion "Cronenberg's" the entire human species into mantid monsters that decapitate their mates. Rick and Morty escape into a parallel reality where everything is identical except that they are dead and must bury their own bodies in the Smith's yard in order to effect their seamless substitution of themselves.
In a subsequent episode, Morty implores his sister not to run away from home. He points to the back yard from Summer's bedroom. "That out there? That's my grave. On one of our adventures, Rick and I basically destroyed the whole world. So we bailed on that reality and we came to this one because it wasn't destroyed. And in this one we were dead. So we came here an… an… and we buried ourselves. And we took their place. And every morning, Summer, I eat breakfast twenty yards from my own rotting corpse!"
"So you're not my brother?"
"I'm better than your brother. I'm a version of your brother you can trust when he says 'don't run'. Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everyone is gonna die. Come watch TV."
The animated "Rick and Morty" series (2013), created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, was introduced on the Adult Swim network (a prodigious cradle of invention for humorists working in video media). Roiland provides the voices of the title characters. The featured voice actors are Sarah Chalke, Chris Parnell, Kari Wahlgren, and Spencer Grammer, supported by a multiverse of regular voices and an impressive roster of guest voices including David Cross, Stephen Colbert, Tom Kenny, Keith David, Alan Tudyk, Ice-T, Dana Carvey, and others. Ryan Elder composed all the music, kicking off with a pulsating "Rick and Morty" theme reminiscent of "Doctor Who" that throbs like an accelerating heartbeat.
Writers and story board artists drive the concepts and dialogue: Ryan Ridley, Tom Kauffman, Wade Randolph, Eric Acosta, and others too numerous to list.
"Rick and Morty" is a teeming comic thicket that bristles with sharp stabs at family values, formal education, sexual mores, species chauvinism, conventional science fiction tropes, and Panglossian optimism. Is this the best of all possible worlds? Holy crap! Let's hope not. Let's party!
The pilot episode concludes with Rick's fervid lubricated rant: "It's just Rick and Morty. Rick and Morty and their adventures, Morty. Rick and Morty forever and forever a hundred years Rick and Morty. Some… things… me and Rick and Morty running' around and… Rick and Morty time… A- all day long forever… All a- a hundred days Rick and Morty! Forever a hundred times…"

5.0 out of 5 starsSometimes science is about conviction!
Verified purchase
Only the best show on TV right now. Anyone who says, "it's just a cartoon" is a fool and has no ideas of what they speak. This show works on as many levels as there are possible alternate dimensions for us to explore. Yes it is raunchy and uses wonderfully placed and timed curse words (MF being a favorite). But don't get distracted by what shimmers...don't let that ostensible veneer detract from the real amazingness of this show: its exploration of fundamentally important existential questions. This has to be one of the smartest, funniest, dirtiest shows on TV...I was even able to use a few clips for a lecture in a course I teach on the origin of ideas and epistemology...yes, this can be some high-brow sh@$.

5.0 out of 5 starsLIfe is Hilariously Meaningless
Verified purchase
I discovered Rick & Morty on a late-night Cartoon Network marathon block. I don't really watch that channel much, as I tend to find the humor of shows like Robot Chicken and Squidbillies gets tedious quickly. This one caught me totally off-guard with its relentless, rapid-fire jokesmithing. I was mildly surprised to find that Dan Harmon was a co-creator. I've always regarded its humor and characters as very hit-and-miss, and frankly felt the constant campaigning to keep it on the air year-after-year was a sign people seriously needing to get over it. But Rick & Morty never once scored a miss with me. Every episode of season 1 is a quotable-filled classic.

The premise is pretty straightforward. The smartest man in existence--that is to say, not just now, but throughout all time, and not just in this universe, but all of the infinite dimensions--moves in with his estranged daughter and spends his time engaging in substance abuse while devising gadgets in the garage. He takes his grandson on adventures to perilous parallel universes, usually in order to find more exotic narcotics to abuse. You see, genuine intelligence is not an asset in this life, because genuine intelligence penetrates deception, and most people's notion of how to enjoy life is based on swathing themselves in layers of denial regarding its duration and significance. Unlike most sitcoms that are designed to help you cope with the ugly truth of human existence through escapism, Rick & Morty is a tool with which you cope through confrontation.

The Blu-ray is not chock full of features. If you have these episodes on your DVR, you're not getting anything you don't already own. There's a "behind-the-scenes" video, but it doesn't provide any anecdotal insights about the show's creation, just writer's-room and sound-booth shenanigans. There are also deleted scenes (i.e. storyboards) for most episodes, but it's not a must-have. Really, the main reason to buy this is to vote with your wallet for the continued production of one of the funniest shows on TV.

Great show. Deserves 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 starsBonus content is great to watch while waiting for season 2!
Verified purchase
Chances are if you are looking at this blu ray set you already know how great the show is, so let me just talk about the quality/bonus content. Along with the full season of episodes, this comes with many deleted scenes (storyboard style, so incomplete animations with dialogue & some sound effects). These are all amazing, and are really fun to watch for a bit of extra Rick and Morty. The behind the scenes video is also a fun watch, but not exactly what you would expect. They take a bit more liberties and don't show much of the actual process of making the episodes, but it does give a pretty cool insight to what working on the show is like in terms of office atmosphere. Finally, there are commentary tracks (sometimes multiple per episode) that are all great to listen to. Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland are very fun to listen to as well as the many other people who appear on these tracks.

Overall I'd say the bonus content is a nice addition for those wanting more while waiting for the next season to come out.
