I make prime Simpsons references or something, and a tumbleweed rolls past.
It's a perfectly cromulent reference!
Have you got into Rick and Morty yet dude? So good.
Yep finished it, it's very, very good. Extremely ambitious and very funny.
It does lean WAY too much on meta humour and 4th wall breaking, though.
I recently finished watching Bojack Horseman too. Another excellent cartoon, equally ambitious in completely different ways.
Rick and Morty is so good, when my girlfriend and I finished it we immediately started watching it again from the beginning.
The third series in particular is brilliant social commentary on what's happening in the world today, the pointless division, the in-fighting between humans for absolutely no reason. Netflix has become the most powerful TV station in the world and they are using that power as a force for good, in my opinion - to spread important messages, to entertain and educate.
It's funny, I watched the first episode and really didn't like it. I also hated how the human characters were drawn (despite the rest of the animation being gorgeous). But I kept going.
Hell, if I bailed on every series that I didn't think much of in the early going, I wouldn't have watched most of my favourite shows!
I was surprised when I found out after finishing Rick and Morty that there was a huge outcry from some isiots because they had the audacity to hire female writers, saying it turned into feminist bull. Especially since the closest thing they did to a feminist episode was in season 2, before they hired those writers. I hate people.
If there's one series from the last year or so that everybody should watch, it's The Good Place
. The best thing I've watched in the last year and shaping up to be my favourite comedy of all time if it keeps going as it is. It's also on Netflix.
Sorry, I could talk about TV all day.
