Mind you, it ends and I'm sat here thinking that the entire episode was about nothing. Just nothing. No story. No plot development. No character progression. We don't even learn how the virus became airborne. No, hang on, wrong show. Anyway, it was just a weird little episode about nothing and I'm completely fine with that. The best episodes of the Simpsons/Family Guy didn't try and ram a story way up in your backside so a scanner couldn't detect it (unlike all the recent Simpsons/FG) so I'm pleased that sort of episodic nonsense has found a new home here.

Don't forget to keep watching for the post-credit scene (except for the pilot).

I think Futurama (the good episodes) or Red Dwarf (episodes from the good series) are closer than The Simpsons or Familly guy.

It's pretty different, but in quite a few ways it's a good successor to Community (also by Dan Harmon). The vast majority of it is funny, but then there's occasional tragic moments, which are all the more impactful because they are out of the blue. It's similarly fast paced to Community, where you sometimes don't even have time to keep up with all the jokes. Then there's the using pop culture reference as a vehicle for jokes, not like how modern Simpsons just makes a reference and That's The Joke, but to actually say something funny.

Oh that's good.

As was "Rick Potion #9." I especially loved Morty's expressionless face after burying himself and taking his place.

There's enough ideas here for a film. Mr Meseeks could be a Adam Sandler movie perhaps. Only Adam Sandler gets killed in the first 5 minutes by Mr Meseeks in an overly long graphic depiction of Mr Meseeks stabbing Sandler in the mouth until he can't say words ever again. In slow mo. It'd win awards.

Mr Meseeks is ace. I liked that, though I was far less interested in the adventure of Roick & Morty themselves. I don't mind Morty, but Rick bores me. It's OK, but not excellent. I told Peter to watch it, as he is young and understands things.

Three episodes into this on Netlflix, it's fantastic :)

I think it's been on there for a while but I've sort of been ignoring it for no particular reason, and after going into POST-BINGE-MISERY after gorging on Santa Clarita Diet I was working my way up to launching into another 'something' again, but without taking on a programme that's got three million fucking seasons to wade through.

Rick and Morty is perfect, sub-half hour slices of animated delight, and only two seasons in existence.

It's got me into proper 'LOL' territory several times already, which is generally where I cosy up to the bosom of something and invite it in to guide me through all its episodes.

I'm really looking forward to watching again this evening once WIFE AND CHILD are upstairs, that's the mark of a good programme.

Hearthly Jnr did come back down to the lounge for something last night and asked 'Is this suitable for children?', just as something very unsuitable happened onscreen, at which she screeched and ran out of the room.

I also watched it, and enjoyed it.

Rick and Morty is brilliant, everyone. Get on it.

Because I have not seen it, mainly.

Me, neither. I watched the second one on Friday night when drunk and thought it was ok. Probably won't continue

I watched the first one of the new series cos a dodgy YouTube version showed up in my Facebook feed. (Never seen an episode before) It was... Alright. There were some funny bits, but I can take it or leave it.

Not sure what all the fuss is about tbh. It's fine, perfectly adequate TV, though. A solid 6/10, like Firefly.

I've only seen the first two (maybe three?) episodes of the first series. It was pretty funny, but I'm not overly fussed about watching the rest.
