Has anybody else seen this? I expected nothing and it turned out to actually be really funny in places. It's totally ridiculous, but Morty plays the perfect foil to Rick's insane-old-alcoholic-scientist.

I've seen the Christmas episode four times now and not one of the others.  It's beginning to bother me, but that one episode is better than what aqua teen has morphed in to over the last decade.

There was a recent episode where they get pulled into an alien holodeck by alien con artists that are actually complete idiots. The little jokes are everywhere and it's awesome.

Rick and Morty is a bonafide ratings hit for Adult Swim, beating out Archer last week.

All of the episodes aired so far are on youtube...  some legit (adult swim puts them up for a week or more free) and some are either semi-legit or not legit (youtube doesn't seem to be pulling them).  More people should be watching this!

It really is the best thing to come out of Adult Swim in ages.

It's amazingly funny, but I'm glad others are picking up on it! I hope they continue to do more.

This is a great, great animated show. Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland are knocking it out of the park.

It might not be my favorite animated show, but it's certainly the best one in that I can show it to anyone, it's way more accessible.

I might still like China, IL more. I dunno.

For whatever reason, I was dying in the after credits scene from the last episode where Rick and Summer go around beating up (and spitting on) people they don't like.  There hasn't been any classic lines so far in this half of the season though....  not like the Hemmingway line or <robot voice>"Where are my testicles, Summer?"

I seriously can't believe more people here aren't watching it.

They have new episodes of this out now. The one with Rick getting sent before the Council of Ricks was awesome. It's got a lot of moments where I find myself laughing loudly in my house, and that's rare. They are starting to flesh out the other characters too, which is a good thing.

No comments in 120 days? Who gives a fuck.

New episodes start Sunday. Here's an interview with Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon at AV club for you to chew on until then.

This one had so many good moments. I loved the Jerry daycare and the Roy game the best, I think.

Quite. Even the tag, which was funny, was dark when you think about it. He just can't get over her. They're REALLY exploring Rick as a character this season.

I watched the first episode on Uverse on-demand a few weeks ago.  Last night I saw that they only had episode 3 and later available.  Whoops!  So I watched #3 anyway.

Upon reflection I'm going to watch the next episode, but I'm not sure I like where this show is heading if they are going to start drilling down into reality of characters that live in a completely unrealistic set of scenarios.

drilling down into reality of characters that live in a completely unrealistic set of scenarios.

What you just described is pretty much the essence of any good work of science fiction.

And yeah, since the first couple of episodes of this show I've been watching it more as science fiction that happens to be hilarious than as a comedy that happens to have a sci-fi premise.  So I love that they're continuing to explore new concepts as well as the consequences of all the completely bizarre shit they've introduced (like the Jerry day care logically following from all the alternate Ricks being in contact and having a large set of needs in common).

I've only ever watched it as Sci-Fi comedy. It's part of the amazingness of the show to me, much like the science jokes that were in Futurama.

Watching my wife try to wrap her head around the multiverse of Ricks the first time was amazing, while it was only a natural sci-fi beat to me - who'd come across the premise before.

(like the Jerry day care logically following from all the alternate Ricks being in contact and having a large set of needs in common).

One of my favorite parts of that episode!

I don't quite understand what Paelos is saying but I think he means it doesn't make sense to deeply explore characters since the plot has shown they are almost interchangeable with others (in the multiverse).

We're still watching even though we know Rick and Morty aren't even in their own universe anymore, their version of Earth got "Cronenberged" and they just replaced a Rick and Morty duo that got killed.  Their real family are fighting in a (Rick induced, Morty inspired) post apocalypse nightmare.

I'm okay with it though because I care about all the Rick and Mortys out there - that didn't sell out and join the trans-dimensional council of Ricks.

Edit: You know what, this show is doomed because it requires too many brain cells.

I don't mind thinking about the characters, but the idea presented was that it was a comedy based on a series of insane sci-fi events.

The writers seem to be taking it into the real grimdark world of consequences of those comedic events. Which is not what I signed on for in a cartoon show. You can't take me on an episode of Family Guy and leave me with True Detective Season 1.

I had a long post halfway written breaking down all the "grimdark" stuff in the first season (starting in the pilot episode) so I could ask you what the hell you're smoking that you think that a bait and switch was pulled, but it started to feel eerily familiar and I remembered the Monopoly thread.   awesome, for real

Paelos' default interpretation of "Cartoon = Funny" seems to be the issue, really.

Because that's not the default in 2015. Certainly not on Adult Swim.
