For all the Rick and Morty stuff that I’ve been writing about, you’d think I’d at least have something on the new season… And I still don’t, but here’s something you didn’t know you needed until right now.
Wubba Lubba Dub Dub!
Be still my still broken heart; Rick and Morty have reappeared in my life with this RICKdiculous Carl’s Jr/Hardee’s commercial.
Adult Swim has put out some really strange shows before, and while Rick and Morty is nothing but strange, it is almost undeniably one of the best shows on TV right now. Rick and Morty was created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon (Community), and maintains a steadily increasing 9.3 rating on IMDB.
The animated brilliance revolves around an always drunk, constantly burping, genius scientist named Rick Sanchez, and his painfully average grandson Morty Smith. Episode to episode they travel through space and time, either saving the world, or putting it and other worlds in danger, usually both. Two seasons and 21 episodes later, the show continues to gain speed and deliver stellar entertainment value. Not only does this show have laugh out loud humor, but it is exceptionally intelligent.
So without further fluffing, here’s our five favorite episodes:
SPOILERS – Obviously…
After two long years, The Venture Bros. return to Adult Swim tonight, June 2nd, at midnight. After a fourth season that in some opinions was a bit lackluster compared to the previous three, anticipation and expectation is high for this fifth season. The show has already been renewed for a sixth season as well but given the production time necessary to bring the series to air, it is not expected to be ready until the fall of 2014 so there’s even greater pressure for this season to be everything fans had ever hoped for and more.
How about we take a nice look back at seasons 1-4 before seeing what season 5 has in store?
That about covers it right? So now that we’ve seen where we’ve been, how about we see where we’re going?
Looks pretty good huh? Out of everything I just hope they address how Dr. Girlfriend manages to keep her well endowed chest region reigned in with very little help from her garment. Of course, as is typical of YouTube, one video led to the next and I came across the promo for the premiere when it was originally slated for May 19th.
So that’s a few things to get you looking forward to tonight’s premiere but what about all those hours to fill between now and then? Well you’ll most certainly want to tune in to Game of Thrones but I’d suggest perhaps you spend a good 40 minutes watching Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer from last year’s San Diego Comic Con. Don’t be discouraged by the sound at first, it does clear up.
That’s all I’ve got. Be sure to tune in to Adult Swim tonight at midnight to catch the season 5 premiere of The Venture Bros.!
If you have watched Adult Swim at all recently, you probably saw an incredibly vague promo for “The Greatest Even in Television History”, much like this one:
