What initially started out as a Back to the Future parody, gained traction and evolved into one of the most creative, animated sci-fi shows ever to be made. In a pool of sci-fi animated comedy shows, ‘Rick and Morty’ potentially stands out the most. The show made its debut in 2013 and although it only has four seasons, ‘Rick and Morty’ has gone to become a highly adored show amongst young adults.
The show is centred around Rick, a hyperactive, functional, alcoholic scientist, who has reluctantly moved into his estranged daughter’s house. He forms a bond with his dweeby grandson, Morty and the duo often go on adventures across time and space. Their misadventures are hilarious to watch as they explore the possibilities of literally anything and everything.
‘Rick and Morty’ is truly a masterpiece in the name of sci-fi animated comedy show, and the situations it tackles are not just easily discarded after one episode (If you know, you know). The show is as dank as can be, and it is also funny with its variety of crude, hilarious and ridiculous situations.
One of the best parts of this show is that the characters do not mind approaching challenging situations with tough emotions. This makes Rick and Morty even more special to the viewers.
To be honest, no episode is outright horrible or the worst, but it differs in terms of the story that is narrated. Without any further delay, Let’s get schwifty!
Here are the 5 Best Episodes Of Rick And Morty Ranked—
5. Auto Erotic Assimilation (2015)
IMDB Rating: 8.6
This is Episode 3 from Rick and Morty Season 2. It is probably one of the Best Rick And Morty Episodes. It is okay to be curious about Rick’s type of woman, and the answers that you will receive will only surprise you.
The grandfather and grandson duo along with Summer come across Rick’s ex, who happens to be a hive-minded alien named Unity. It gets chaotic when Rick begins partying. Around this time, Beth and Jerry find Rick’s underground lair and get into an argument over whether or not will he be allowed to stay with the family any longer.
4. Mortynight Run (2015)
IMDB Rating: 8.9
Well, this episode is just so brilliant that we don’t know where to begin! Season 2, Episode 2 gives us one of the Best Rick And Morty episodes of all time. ‘Mortynight Run’ is all about how they try to save a gaseous life form while Jerry takes up residence in a daycare centre meant for “Jerrys”.
When Rick and Morty accidentally kill Krombopulous Michael with his poor spaceship piloting, Morty is acquainted with the assassin’s target, who assumes the name “Fart”. Morty goes on a mission on freeing Fart and helping him return to his race from the wormhole he came out of.
3. Meeseeks and Destroy (2014)
IMDB Rating: 9
This ludicrous episode of Rick and Morty is a perfect analogy of how even something trivial can snowball and turn into a hostage situation! Rick introduces his new invention, a Meeseeks box, to the family.
The Meeseeks box can generate silly, short-life-spanned blue creatures that go by the name Meeseeks (obviously). These little creatures can help the family with anything, but the situation goes out of hand rather quickly, as the little creatures begin to wreak havoc. In the meantime, Rick decides to go an adventure led by Morty. Totally deserves the third spot on our list of the Best Rick And Morty Episodes.
2. Pickle Rick (2017)
IMDB Rating: 9.3
One of the best yet most complex episodes to ever have been created comes in at number 2 on the list of Best Rick and Morty Episodes. As the name suggests, ‘Pickle Rick’ is the one where Rick turns himself into a pickle. This episode went super Freudian with the whole idea of pickle Rick, and it went to be one of the series’ most iconic episodes.
The idea was to understand what really makes Rick tick, and here we see him transform himself into a pickle just as Morty, Beth and Summer decide to go for a family therapy session.
1. Total Rickall (2015)
IMDB Rating: 9.6
The one truly deserving of the number one spot in the list of Best Rick and Morty episodes is undoubtedly the best episode so far. ‘Total Rickall’ gave us the fan-favourite character, Mr Poopybutthole, along with other absurd characters.
In this episode, Rick is forced to lock the house down after an alien parasite inserts itself into the memories of the family. These parasites began creating memories where friends and family members become outlandish and act bizarre. The interesting flashbacks prove to be a unique element in this story and give us more insights into the relationships between the family members.
Indeed, the creators of Rick and Morty have always managed to put inventive sci-fi premises into their everyday situations. This episode manages to capture the essence of the show more successfully than any other episode and is among the Best Rick And Morty Episodes.
