Rick and Morty is this hilarious new show on Adult Swim. Created by Dan Harmon (Community) and Justin Roiland, it's about Rick and his grandson Morty who go on adventures. Rick is a scientist and Morty is just a regular 12 year old school student who reluctantly goes along with his grandfather's hair-brained schemes.
It reminds me a little of other grown-up animated shows that are on right now. What makes it hilarious is not only the wacky adventures that Rick gets Morty into, it's also very reminiscent of a little film called Back to the Future. The creators have said that they took inspiration from the popular films, as Rick does look a bit like Doc and Morty is very similar to Marty. Honestly, that's what drew me in to begin with, but it's not the same. Yes, Rick might be a tad insane like Doc, but he's also more gross and less caring. He puts his grandson in a ton of very dangerous situations! But that's part of what makes it so funny!
Also notice that Rick burps a lot. I mean, a lot. Also pay attention to how many times he says "Morty". As in "Morty, you have to understand, Morty. You have to come with me right now, Morty!".
I'm actually hooked on this show right now.
