“Rick and Morty: Seasons 1-4” [Blu-ray] Review by Suzanne 2/25/21

This is a very funny animated show with extremely devoted fans of all ages. It’s never been my type of show (in part because I hate that type of animation), but I can see why everyone loves it. The humor is really edgy and hyperkinetic. It will probably make you laugh – especially if you have a fairly juvenile sense of humor.

This is a great set to have for any fan of the show because not only does it have all of the episodes, but it has many great features and extras as well.  The show is currently airing season 5, so this is a great way to catch up before watching the current episodes.

“Rick & Morty Season 4” Review by Suzanne 9/20/20

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

I’ve never liked this show…. it seems aimed at teenage boys.  The artwork is terrible (and frequently gross). It can be creative as far as the stories, but the jokes are not very funny. I tried to watch this, and I think I laughed once.

There are no features or extras on this disk. That’s disappointing. I always enjoy watching the BTS features.

I know the show is very popular, though, so if you’re a fan of the series, this DVD set is a must-have.  The fans are very loyal. They had to wait two years for new episodes of the series.  The show was renewed for season 5. Let’s hope the pandemic doesn’t make these poor souls wait another two years!

Here’s a trailer.
