Critics Consensus

Rick and Morty zaps onto screens and makes an instant impression with its vivid splashes of color, improvisational voice acting, and densely-plotted science fiction escapades -- bringing a surprising amount of heart to a cosmically heartless premise.

Critic Reviews for Rick and Morty Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (10)

Harmon and Roiland want to deny us all of our comfortable psychosocial poles by forcing us to reside, as viewers, in the same sort of ambiguous head-space the Internet and popular culture forces us to reside in anyway.

Rick and Morty... works because the writers' free associations are unexpected but somehow logical.

On a pure episode-to-episode level, few shows can match the intricate plot machinations that send its two heroes to strange new corners of distant planets and suburbia alike.

It has transformed into not only one of the sharpest, most surreal, nerdy comedies on television, but also a treatise on storytelling and world-building.

Weird it does indeed get, and weird I hope it shall stay. This show could be a top-rate crossover hit.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Rick and Morty is, eight times in ten, a black-hearted grotesquery... And after 11 episodes, I am more invested in its world and characters than any adult comedy of the last few years.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a hint of Futurama here, but it's a darker and far more foul world, much to our enjoyment.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

A bonkers adventure through space and time that has as much delightfully crude humor as you would expect from an Adult Swim series, but at least twice as much heart.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

I would not recommend watching it while eating, but beyond that I've been enjoying it tremendously so far for its imagination, for its emotional/philosophical consistency, for the excellent voice work,, and for the balls-out comedy of it.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

This show is amazing. I have never laughed so hard in my life as I have while watching this show.

May 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Each and every episode is the funniest thing you've ever seen and also the smartest and also the darkest and also the weirdest. And that's what science fiction at its best truly is.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Between the earnestness of the characters and how lovingly detailed the expansive universe is, this show watches as a multi-episode ode to pop culture itself. Yet it never crosses into meta territory.

    Adult Swim's best new show.
  • Oct 22, 2019
    inventive and very funny, this is what modern humour should be like
  • Oct 19, 2019
    This cartoon is mainly for adults, but sometimes it is showed by cartoon channels so children can watch it. They should tighten the showings of this cartoon because it contains violence, inappropriate jokes, and adult content. It can hurt children and trigger them to act like cartoon heroes in the future. So these companies should follow the rules of age restriction.

    Best animated show ever! Hilarious!
  • Sep 20, 2019
    The freshest cartoons I have seen in a long time.

    I love this series. Its hilarious, Rick is this crazy scientist and his sidekick Morty is this fearful grandson. They go to adventures around the galaxy and they meet problems, then they kick problems to their balss. Well animated and voice acted. You should watch this masterpiece.
