Watch RICK & MORTY Kill The Simpsons


I don't typically write much about TV, despite the fact that I watch an official metric fuck-ton of it.  Easily the show I've been missing the most as of late is Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's incredible Adult Swim series Rick & Morty, which is a very loose riff on the Doc and Marty relationship from Back To The Future.  It's weird and violent and sweet and twisted and, above all, fucking hilarious.  If I had to point to a single episode to introduce the show, it would probably be "Meseeks And Destroy," but that's just one of many episodes that I'd be willing to watch on a loop forever.

The show returns July 26th and I can't goddamn wait.  In the meantime, I'll have to make do with the video below, in which the folks at The Simpsons allowed Harmon and Roiland to step in and animate this coming week's couch gag, in which drunken mad scientist Rick and his sweet but ill-fated grandson Morty accidentally murder the Simpson family if horrific fashion.  It's magnificent.


Seriously, I cannot recommend this show highly enough.  Even if Community can't milk another season out of Yahoo, at least we have lots of Rick & Morty in our future.
