Rick and Morty are back for another season, and it is looking to be its best one yet. The show, which has had a stellar run over the course of its entirety, seems to have blown everything else out of the water with Rick and Morty Season 5. I am personally a huge fan. of the show, and love the chaos and hilarity that the show brings to the table, along with the little bits of pseudoscience that it sprays onto its audience every time it airs on the television.
Season 5 brings more of the same to the table but done bigger and better than ever before. And that is exactly what the fans want from the show. The way that the show is so relatable, funny, quirky, and outlandish at the same time lends so much to its credibility and is one of the main reasons that viewers love the show.
Rick and Morty Season 5: The Review
At first glance, Season 5 is more of the same. It is the same Rick and Morty formula that we have seen so far, and it has been done in a manner that absolutely does justice to the series. The performances are strong as ever, and the characters of Rick and Morty never feel out of their element. You can sort of appreciate the consistency that the creators put towards the show, with the voice acting and the plot solidness remaining consistent over the course of so many years.
Season 5, although it stuck to the same old outlandish themes with jam packed storylines that put our characters in situations they would rather not be in, delves deeper into the world of Rick and Morty to explore more of Rick’s messed up inner world, and the way that his mind ticks. It gives us more insight into what goes on in that brain of his more than any other season before it.
We can see that Rick is not the same as he was before, and his emotions are now getting the better of him. He has gotten progressively worse and is becoming more normal, in a weird sort of way, as the show goes on. Morty, too, has had character growth of his own and can be seen as more of a courageous and daring character compared to what he was in the initial seasons.
What is even better is the fact that the creators, in their typical fashion, again puzzled the fans in the middle of everything as they tinkered with the physics of it all, and introduced a new dimension of Rick and Morty that was never seen before. It takes full advantage of the show’s dynamics and brings about twists that change the timeline of the show in major ways.
Rick and Morty Season 5 is also more emotional than the seasons that came before it, and this can really play to its advantage. The show brings a new element of the human condition into the plot and makes judicious use of it over the entirety of the season. It brings an element of freshness and humanity to the show that we all appreciate.
Production and animation, as ever, are amazingly done here, and there is nothing more you could ask for. I personally really prefer that they stick to the original style here, and not change things around too much. Besides that, there is not much to comment on or critique even.
