Adult Swim’s television show, Rick and Morty, is an animated sci-fi-adventure-comedy that follows a crazy scientist grandpa, named Rick Sanchez, and his idiotic grandson, Morty Smith. Together, they go on multiple adventures throughout different dimensions, universes, and parallel universes.
Throughout the series, we see Morty mature from being a scared kid to someone who can stand up to Rick and question his antics. Rick also changes from being rude to Morty and everyone he sees/meets to being a person that people can tolerate being around and also caring for his family. This shows the writers’ ability to develop a character and show them mature throughout the series. The writing of this show is excellent because you can pop in on any episode and have a jolly-old-time or, if you’re a die-hard fan, you can watch it episode-to-episode and see the ‘easter eggs’ and references to past episodes of the show.
The two main characters are voiced by the same actor, Justin Roiland. His skills are extravagant because, unless you focus really hard and listen very carefully, you can’t tell that they are voiced by the same person. Overall, the voice acting is really well done and helps to develop the characters.
Overall, I would give Rick and Morty 4 out of 5 stars because I think that it is a great show, but I feel like it has room for some improvement. Sometimes the show can just go overboard and just be completely ridiculous, and this may turn off some viewers.
