Finally after two year hiatus fans around the world can rejoice as Rick and Morty returns for their highly anticipated third season. After releasing a teaser episode to the season where Rick escapes from the Galactic Federation and destroys its economy, one can only wonder as to what crazy adventures Rick and Morty, possibly including Summer and Beth more often, they can get into.
I could not be more excited to see what Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have in store for us as the Smith family continues to tackle any issue they see fit. Rick and Morty have managed to become one of the most clever shows television, as alcoholic mad scientist Rick Sanchez leads the ensemble on their multidimensional trips as they face the cold, hard reality of life and how vast the universe is. However in doing so they manage to undercut the seriousness of the issues and distance us enough to laugh along. Rick and Morty are, by far, one of the greatest duo’s in recent television history as Morty’s grounded morals is the complete opposite of Rick’s anti-establishment, sometimes questionable, mentality. It’s often these questionable actions that are the catalyst to these misadventures, that may or may not be resolved within the timeframe of the show.
There are seemingly no obstacles in Rick’s way as he simultaneously destroyed both the Galactic Federation and Council of Ricks so he ultimately has no one to answer to. One of the main obstacles in Rick and Morty’s adventures used to be Jerry Smith, Morty’s father, but now with his departure from the show as the new season begins who knows what’s to stop them from getting into crazier and crazier situations. We will also get to see how Summer and Morty deal with their mother and father go through a divorce, although with what they’ve both been through it should be a piece of cake.
Dan Harmon isn’t new to success but in teaming up with Justin Roiland, he continues to create masterpieces that are funny, clever and yet they tackle important questions and really make you think. With the first episode of season three setting the stage for what will seemingly be one of their most adventurous season, the ceiling is the limit which they surely intend to break. Rick and Morty have something for everything and with just one episode you’ll be sure to be hooked, if for some reason you still haven’t watched be sure to tune in and see what they have to teach.
