TV SERIES REVIEW
Grandfathers are supposed to be wise, genial figures in their grandchildren’s lives—perhaps someone who teaches the youngsters how to fish, shares the joy of old movies and, of course, tells interminably long stories.
But not all grandfathers fit that template. Some are less wise and genial and more brilliant and sociopathic.
Take Rick Sanchez, for instance. After having been gone—like, really gone—for a couple of decades, the old man with the blue pointy hair suddenly shows up on daughter Beth’s doorstep and moves in. It’s obvious to everyone that he’s not exactly, um, right, if you know what I mean. But perhaps that’s simply a side effect of his adventures—courtesy of a portal-creating gun— through an unfolding and chaotic multiverse.
He’s seen things, man.
But nihilistic dystopian adventures are no fun without a little company. While Beth is largely oblivious to Rick’s sci-fi shenanigans, her children—high-strung 14-year-old Morty and his rebellious, world weary older sister, Summer—are all too familiar with them. Morty has been a party to pert near every one of Grandpa Rick’s misadventures, and Summer is increasingly well traveled herself.
But if travel is supposed to expand one’s mind in most case, Rick’s interdimensional hopping seems to be imploding on itself.
