What is High Concept Sci-Fi Rigamarole?
The Rick and Morty pilot is a classic, but you only realise its uniqueness when you watch Jerry and Rick interact. Rick is weirdly likeable and intelligent. His clingy friendship that Rick and Morty have is extremely intriguing. The strange green drool on Rick’s mouth is a bit hard to get used to but then you just stop seeing it by the end of the show. That’s because so much is happening, so much awesomeness is potrayed that you don’t have time to process everything at once.
