HBO Max Pilot Reviews: Rick and Morty

HBO Max came out swinging by releasing a HUGE catalog of television shows. I will unveil a new series in which I watch the pilot episode from the catalog and tell you if it’s binge-worthy.

Today I am going to kick it off with the very popular Animated Show, Rick and Morty.

An animated series that follows the exploits of a super scientist and his not-so-bright grandson.

S1E1: Pilot

The show kicks off with a battle between Rick & Morty, Rick is drunk and threatening to blow up the world and telling Morty he is going to take him to see his crush, Jessica. The banter at the top showcases the chemistry between our two main characters.

The influence of Rick on Morty is weighing on his parents and even on Morty himself. He puts him in several tough circumstances that include putting his life at risk.

Throughout the middle portion of the pilot, we witness what the writers are trying to showcase with how raunchy this will be. They also failed within this area to reel anything of relevance to the show. It was a big pile of a mess.

The Verdict:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The foundation of the show is built on over the top raunchy humor. It seems forced but often lands more than it doesn’t. The relationship between Rick and Morty is what is to carry this show but I found them rather annoying.

For a pilot episode, I felt like I wanted so much more out of it.
