Rick and Morty is a Sci-fi animated sitcom created by comedian Justin Roland –known for voicing the Earl of Lemongrab on Adventure Time– and writer Dan Harmon, creator of the sitcom Community. The plot centers on the misadventures of a 14-year old boy named Morty, and his genius alcoholic grandfather, Rick. As they travel through space and different dimensions, they encounter monsters of all sorts: aliens, parasites, giant bugs, and anything else you can imagine.

The main peculiarity of this show is that it manages to make philosophical statements while retaining humor. It's point of view ranges from nihilism to existentialism and explores the darkest dilemmas that scourge the human condition. This blend of humor with dark psychological undertones makes this series very relatable for the millennial generation. We are a generation aware of the absurdity of our existence and the senseless possibilities of our bleak future. We use sarcasm to laugh things off. We are also aware that we live in a never-ending cycle of consumerism, where we fill our minds with meaningless illusions of entertainment that ultimately leave us empty and indifferent.

Morty, sit here. Summer, you sit here. Now, listen—I know the two of you are very different from each other in a lot of ways, but you have to understand that as far as Grandpa's concerned, you're both pieces of shit! Yeah. I can prove it mathematically. Actually, l-l-let me grab my whiteboard. This has been a long time coming, anyways."
