I’ve created a Rick & Morty Season 3 Countdown Timer because there are already far too many things to remember in 2017 and I can at least manage this one.
If you haven’t watched it yet, give it a try.
It’s a nicely weird Adult Swim animated cartoon show targeted at adults more so than children: Rick is a genius mad scientist inventor, irreverent, world and alcoholic, and maternal grandfather to an angst-ridden 14-year-old Morty who starts off naive and pure as the driven snow but along the way learns some earth shattering life lessons while accompanying his grandfather.
Throw in the tumultuous relationship that Rick has with his daughter Beth, son-in-law Jerry and granddaughter Summer along with an endless supply of alternate universes with their respective denizens, and it makes for a hugely unpredictable series that packs in a lot of offbeat humour as well as the odd emotional journey of discovery for one or more of its characters as well as the viewer.
The show is a bit like marmite…you either love it or hate it.
