Rick and Morty - Taking TV Animation by Storm

Although only 2 seasons in, Rick and Morty has already established itself as one of the best TV animation shows in this generation. But why is it so popular? The nostalgia it gives as it resembles "Back to the Future"? The colorful animations? The writing style? Analyze why Rick and Morty is becoming more and more popular.

  • There's really no going wrong with a Rick and Morty topic. The show is teeming with all kinds of topics to be discussed and dismantled. Literally anything from the ending scenes from the Season Two finale to the opening credit scene from Episode 1 can be dismantled and discussed. A heavy focus on the reality and writing of the show could really make for a wonderful article. – MatthewP93 4 years ago

  • The writing has a lot to do with it. I can't recall the source, but I remember an article referring to Rick and Morty as one of the smartest shows on television. The sci-fi mixed with suburban drudgery may reflect upon the cult shows such as Family Guy, Futurama, and even the really weird adult swim series such as Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Robot Chicken--which may be one factor contributing to its popularity. Also, creator Justin Roiland has risen to popularity since his Mr. Sprinkles web series, voicing Lemongrab in Adventure Time and other characters on various networks. Nostalgia--yes. The writing style--undoubtedly! And the growing fans are all eagerly awaiting the upcoming season! – DrownSoda 3 years ago

  • It would be super neat to break down the references inside Rick and Morty since there are so many! But on a more analytical note, I agree with DrownSoda that it's worth looking at Rick and Morty in contrast to other adult cartoons. Rick and Morty breaks away from those shows by having a slightly more linear plot line in each season and plays with the tropes that other sci-fi shows use in an arguably more complex and intelligent way. Either way, a Rick and Morty topic would be great in any capacity. – LondonFog 3 years ago

I’ve been watching South Park since fourth grade (seriously) and I’ve loved it ever since. The creativity they put into their stories really inspires me for my own stories I write. I also love the process they go through into making an episode. They stay on top of the current news and events, so it’ll never lose its touch. It doesn’t look like it’ll slow down any time soon

South Park: Respect Their Commentarah

If you’re going to start watching anime, you show start with Dragon Ball Z, Cowboy Bebop, or Trigun. Those were my entire childhood. Then you can move onto the current popular shows like Attack on Titan, Naruto, FMAB, One Piece, etc. I would add Case Closed to this list also. Its still airing and its just as long as One Piece, but the creativity they put into the different cases for each episode always sparks my creative plug.

The rise of Netflix, Stan, and Hulu will eventually kill off cable television. I think its a good thing because all these new platforms can not only put out new and diverse shows, but give new writers and other recent grads more job opportunities in an already competitive. It won’t be for a while until we see the end of cable television, but the signs are all there.
