Rick and Morty manages to shake most of the descriptors given to it. So much so, that the normal 500 words that I a lot myself per review can’t do it justice.
But here goes nothing:
Sci-fi has been described as philosophy for dummies. And if that’s true then Rick and Morty fits the bill. It’s a high-concept sci-fi disguised as a wacky adventure show. Despite it’s loose content, there is a framework to each episode. Most times the family’s home on earth acts as a launching pad for their adventures. Other times, after an especially trying quest, it acts as a grounding change of pace.
