Trivia

The title of this episode is in reference to the American news program "60 Minutes", which is "the oldest and most watched newsmagazine on television", having been on the air since 1968. Presumably, the reason the show is in reference to this program is due to the Interdimensional Cable programs all being different from each other, like the individual segments on a news channel.

Goofs

Rick and Morty both remark that the TV shows seem to have a "improvisational feel" to them. At the end of the trailer for Two Brothers, the voice actor just loses it and says the name of the movie is "Two Brothers". See more »

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.
