Trivia

Creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have stated that they conceived a backstory for Rick with no intention of ever revealing it, because they are of the opinion that too many shows "jumped the shark" by revealing too many details. However, they have admitted to putting in clues to one of Rick's dark secrets since the beginning, and later confirmed that a fan had correctly guessed the secret in an online forum. By a process of elimination, fans have been able to narrow it down to four fan theories: Rick is aware that he is a fictional character; Rick's constant drinking isn't alcoholism, he is drinking an extract that keeps him super-intelligent; Rick is actually an aged Morty who traveled back in time; and finally: Rick's 'original Morty' is dead, and has been replaced by a copy from a parallel dimension.

Hilarious, smart, fresh, original and unexpectedly emotionally resonant
17 November 2014 | by siebertws13See all my reviews

There were only 11 episodes in the first season, so it seems a little premature and overenthusiastic to call this the funniest and best show on television, but I'm tossing it out there anyway.

Too much of the Adult Swim programming is mean-spirited and ugly, but "Rick & Morty" balances its cynicism with moments of genuine familial and societal warmth. The characters are well-developed and evolve over the course of the season, and the voice talent is gifted -- Chris Parnell is the secret weapon as Morty's not-too-bright dad.

The Pilot is the only episode I was Luke-warm on, because it's the only one where the nastiness overwhelms everything else, but it fits well into the course of the entire season because it gives the bitter alcoholic grandfather Rick something to grow away from, and the first year gets better and better as it rolls along.

There isn't a lot of TV I can watch with my son, but this is just about the best of it. Can't wait for season 2, and I hope there will be more than 11 episodes.
