Rick and Morty S1#
Again, my brother recommended this animated series for watch. He and a friend went all out quoting lines from it for a hour, laughing about jokes that only they could understand.
You had that before? You leave out a popular series and suddenly your social life shrinks. I didn't like the feeling - made me remember depressing stuff about my past. Because I didn't want to have that, and run away judging, without seeing it - I decided to check it out.
Must say that I DO judge current American animated series. It feels either like it's for children who had lobotomy, made by a paedophile - or wanting to be funny is full with cretin jokes. Both have horrible graphics in common, the first is mostly done with CGI, while by the 2nd spec is the strong outlined characters on an unmoving background.
Naturally I do have expectations, both go into the 2nd category Simpsons and South Park. I feel somehow that even while a bit strong, they do tend to solve their jokes in a creative way, that I can applaud and enjoy without hesitation.

Now for Rick and Morty... the show is about a twisted kind of Back to the future setting where Rick is a genius scientist who is taking his grandson Morty as a "left hand" assistant onto adventures.
Rick is a brilliant but chaotic pull while not to bright Morty the moral gravity. Naturally there is no balance, and with the grandpa drinking, grandson in puberty gives way to many-many more reasons to throw cretin jokes. I know for some minds this is good relaxation, but it's just not for me.

I wanted to check it out, but I have still so many other things to watch.

True. Usually I would say me too, but cause I wanted to be able to take part in the conversation with my friends, it got urgent to check it out. ^^" I wouldn't recommend it, but after watching it once you kinda get used to the style and then want to re-watch...
