Rick and Morty have been entertaining their fans ever since December 2013. Currently, there are three seasons of the American animated sitcom. They follow the crazy scientist Rick and his grandson Morty on adventures through all galaxies. A short film parody of Back to The Future inspired the series. Roiland created it for the short-film festival, co-founded by Harmon, called Channel101. After Adult Swim asked Harmon for a new TV show idea, he came together with Roiland. Shortly after, the idea for Rick and Morty was born. Although some people say that it seems like a combination of The Simpsons and Futurama, many praise the series Rick and Morty for its originality and creativity. The fans love the show for its absurdity and of course the unique characters. After the sitcom’s final episode of season three, even a famous billionaire shared his love for Rick and Morty on Twitter.
If you haven’t heard of the guy that is trying to get human life on to mars while developing technologies that integrate human brains with artificial intelligence, teaching cars how to drive themselves and on top of that finds time to enjoy a good laugh watching Rick and Morty, it’s about time!

Rick And Morty in Musk’s Life
As you can see, it’s a pretty busy genius we’re looking at. And yet, he finds time with his kids to follow the spacey adventures of Rick and Morty. He shared on Twitter that he finds the show ‘kinda disgusting’ but him and his boys love it. Rick and Morty’s Twitter responded quickly, promising to ‘fully disgust’ the whole Musk family by the end of season three. With such a promise made, you’re probably curious of the outcome…
So here’s what Elon Musk had to say about the science-fiction sitcom’s final episode of season three:
The Plot of The Series
Rick went missing for a few years and suddenly turned up out of nowhere at his daughter’s (Beth’s) doorstep. Her husband Jerry worries because he thinks Rick is a sociopathic scientist that does insane things in their little garage. On top of that, he takes his grandchildren Morty and Summer on adventures across the whole universe, putting himself and them into crazy dangers.
Why You’ll love Rick and Morty
It’s about science, but you don’t have to be a scientist to get the jokes
Although each episode brings up a number of scientific theories, the extreme presentation will make anyone laugh. With the exaggerations of theory, emotions and storyline, Rick and Morty is not just for the science experts. Anyone will get the jokes.
Rick and Morty is creative and unique – you won’t find a show that compares
As mentioned in the beginning, some people like to describe the series as a combination of Futurama and The Simpsons. However, take some time to see it for yourself. Rick and Morty’s fans praise the sitcom for its creativity and uniqueness.
Rick and Morty’s adventures never lack action
One thing is for sure – there will not be a single episode with a boring storyline. Action and a little bit of drama will always are a guarantee.
You won’t see the end coming – always expect a twist!
With all the action, scientific craziness, a sociopathic grandpa and a not-so smart grandson, you can never predict where the story is going to end.
