hello internet and welcome back to my extremely unofficial review series! this time we are looking at rick and morty! this is generally one of my favourite animated TV shows just because of the amazing qualities it displays, so let’s walk through them shall we?
1) one of the good things about the series is the way it’s written. the back and forth style comedy between Rick and Morty is funny just because they’re so quick to fire an insult. they are also able to make very serious situations into a big joke, such as sexual assault and murder. the fact that Justin Roiland does the voices for both Rick and Morty is one of the better things about watching it, as well as all of the ridiculous catchphrases that Rick has throughout the show. my favourites being “wubbalubadubdub!” and “GRRRASS TASTES BAD!”
2) The other good thing about the show is the visual effects, the many different worlds and timelines are really stimulating to look at. I have re-watched the series several times when I wake up, it is very relaxing to watch or even to have on in the background. The lore of the different places is also ridiculous, the different character names are amazing and their planets are brilliant to watch. the different things they have on them are great as well, like the day care made specifically for Jerry’s.
3) finally, another good thing about the show is the relationship between the characters. though Rick never admits it, his love for his grandchildren is very noticeable and strong. the relationship between Rick and Beth is also hilarious as makes beth a very funny character, with her severe abandonment issues and day drinking (though in reality, I’m not entirely sure its something to laugh about!)
Jerry and his relationship with Rick is also a very funny style of comedy, mainly because it makes him a very stereotypical dad character in the show, making his corresponding relationship all the more funny.
thank you all so much for reading. will be back soon with more TV and movie reviews!
see you next time
