My husband tends to watch a lot more television than I do. He has a lot of “downtime” at work, so his boss lets him watch movies and television on his ipad. My husband is always telling me about a new show he is watching, or a movie that he saw.
Several months ago, my husband told me about a cartoon series that he started watching called Rick and Morty. I had heard of the show, but I have never watched it before.
My husband would come home almost every day and tell me that he watched an episode or two at work. He said the show is weird, but really funny.
We both knew it was still on television, but we were not sure what channel it was on, or what day/time it aired.
One night I was scrolling through the guide on our television when I finally saw Rick and Morty. It’s part of a block of shows known as “Adult Swim” on the Cartoon Network. Basically they are shows for grown ups.
Rick and Morty is an animated series about a crazy scientist named Rick and his grandson Morty. They go on wild adventures across different galaxies, encountering all sorts of bizarre words and creatures. Often Morty is not up for the adventure, because he just wants to be a normal boy with a normal life. That doesn’t matter to Rick. He always finds a way into sucking his grandson into his next crazy invention or adventure.
Admittedly, the show is weird, but in a fun way. It can be gross too, but not over the top gross.
My husband and I laugh out loud to the show, and try to catch it whenever we see it’s on.

I was given the Blu-ray with digital code to review, along with a really funny Rick and Morty King of S#!+ Funko Pop. I happen to collect Funko Pops (I have about three dozen of them), so this fits in perfectly with my collection.
I love that the Blu-ray comes with the digital code so that my husband can watch the season at work.
I haven’t seen an entire season of Rick and Morty. I only watch it when we happen across it. I have not seen any of the season four episodes, so I was thrilled to get to see them.
Some of my favorites from Season Four include Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktime’s Morty (I love the talking cat and dragons), Rattlestar Ricklactica (the snake astronaut) and The Old Man and the Seat, which is probably the inspiration for the Funko Pop.
I love all the bonus features too. I love the thought processes behind some of the episodes. It’s pretty cool to see how episodes come together.
Rick and Morty: Season 4 is priced to own at $24.98 SRP for the DVD ($29.98 in Canada) and $29.98 SRP for the Blu-ray ($39.99 in Canada), which includes a Digital Copy (U.S. only). Rick and Morty: Season 4 is also available to own on Digital via purchase from digital retailers.
