But I’m like, Rick and Morty season 4, episode 1 was the best thing to happen to me this week! Not that it was a great week or anything. But still. BEST. THING.
I am really looking forward to taking another spin on the insane-wheel with these two. The world they have conceived is extraordinary, in every meaning of that word. I am very impressed with how fresh the story still feels and the possibilities of where they can take this seem to be endless. I am kinda bummed that the show will be released on a weekly basis, since it is one of the best shows to sit back and binge the hell out of.
If you don’t know, Rick and Morty follows a sociopathic genius scientist, Rick, who drags his inherently timid grandson, Morty, on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.
