Quotes

Morty: That, out there, that's my grave.
Summer: Wait, what?
Morty: 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 in this one, the world wasn't destroyed and in this one, we were dead. So we came here, a- a- and we buried ourselves and we took their place. And every morning, Summer, I eat breakfast twenty yards away from my own rotting corpse.
Summer: So you're not my brother?
Morty: I'm better than your brother. I'm a version of your brother...

This is why Rick and Morty is the best animated show out there.
7 October 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a brilliant episode, one of the best in reflection. My fellow reviewer complains that it slows down to focus on one gag a plethora of character development. I would argue that this is (in this case) an extreme positive, not an extreme negative.

The big premise of the episode is inter-dimensional cable. Rick hooks up the T.V to receive television from every alternate time-line. Infinite TV. This means that they encounter some very strange programs. It leads to some of the series' funniest and most memorable gags. This already sets it up there among the funniest TV episodes. But it goes further.

The family starts using the technology to glimpse what could have been in their lives. This is used for fascinating character development, competent even for a non-animation. It also leads to a great monologue from Morty about the consequences of a previous episode.

Now this, THIS, is where Rick and Morty sets itself above all the other sitcoms. It uses an intriguing sci-fi premise to create hilarious and memorable gags and push the characters into fascinating and compelling development. So now, what at first appears to be filler is actually important and distinguished; art that is entertaining. And that's a win in my book.
