So that was excellent. I was wrong about how some predictions. But was so good I don’t care.

I watched the first four episodes and either the show is not for me or I am missing something.

That’s a shame, I’d say 4 episodes is definitely enough to know if this show is for you or not.

Agreed. Maybe 5 because Meeseeks and Destroy is a pretty good limitus test for how far it goes in terms of dark humor.

#9

When I show Rick and Morty to a new person I tend to skip around a bit, Meeseeks and Destroy and Rick Potion #9 are my go to ones.

#10

Meeseeks and Destroy is pretty good, but for a few people, I showed them a few specific spoiler scenes to show them there the show is going.

I enjoy dark humor. That isn’t the issue. Thus far, the characters are unlikable, but not in a fun way. The jokes are obvious and the comedic timing is often thrown by Rick’s constant belching (an unfunny joke the first time, which becomes grating). The moralizing is heavy-handed, repetitive, and shallow.

Maybe it gets better? If you point me to a specific episode or two, I will watch them.

The show really grew on me second season, when they settled into the characters better and used Summer much more effectively.

Good episode for humor:
“Mortynight Run”

Jemaine Clement cameos and sings a song.

Good episode for story/character:
“Auto Erotic Assimilation”

I watched 3 episodes and haven’t gone back. I pretty much feel the same way.

The love Potion episode is the one I always show people.

I feel like they tone down the belching in the second season a bit, but I can’t remember for certain. I mostly found it annoying in the first season. I honestly don’t really find the show to be that consistent. I think it hits it’s stride a bit more in the second season. Things still miss the mark, but holy shit when they hit they definitely hit. The overarching story is okay, but I don’t really care if it’s there or not.

The second season is definitely where the show hits it’s stride. Harmon and Roiland become absolutely genre defining at that point with every episode playing up some type of Twilight Zone type plot or moral quandry.

Rick and Morty is the show I wish Doctor Who could be.

If I had to go with a third episode, it’s Something Ricked This Way Comes. That is some funny shit.

Just speculation it appears that based on the posts, it’s mainly males that enjoy this show vs females. Just an observation. Jason and Kevin from ATW9K keep telling me to keep watching and love the show.

I recall seeing at a PAX that Rick & Morty had a booth for something and it was mainly dudes.

I also am not a fan of the voice acting. I want to punch something for how grating and annoying the kid is.

Emily really likes the show. We watched the season three premiere last night.
