Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science-fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Cartoon Network's late-night programming block Adult Swim. The series follows the misadventures of cynical mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his good-hearted but fretful grandson Morty Smith, who split their time between domestic life and interdimensional adventures. While the other seasons received universal acclaim the fifth season received extremely negative reviews and caused the series to undergo a massive decline in quality for a bit during this season.

Why Science Doesn't Make Sense In This Season

  1. The main problem with this season is that it clearly lacks the charm and cleverness of the first four seasons and seasons six onwards.
    • Especially because of the overuse of incest jokes and the writing just degraded into more catastrophic.
  2. Most of the characters in this season have been flanderized to the point of becoming unrecognizable from their original personalities. Luckily they went back to their original personalities by the sixth season.
    1. Rick went from a jackass yet hilarious anti-hero who despite harshly treating Morty, he shows that he genuinely cares for him into an even bigger jackass who has shown to care very little towards his family and sometimes even uses them for his own benefits, with a great example being the episode Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion.
  3. The writing in this season was downgraded from amazing, funny, creative, and clever to disgusting and catastrophic.
  4. This season has numerous plot holes, such as:
    1. In season 3's The Rickshank Rickdemption, Rick faked his backstory to deceive the Galactic Federation, but in the season 5 finale, the fabricated backstory was actually one of Rick's memories, which doesn't make sense since Rick himself in The Rickshank Rickdemption said that this is fabricated, something that was on his imagination.
  5. The humor was heavily degraded and lacks the charm of the first four seasons and sixth season onwards humor.
  6. This season has plenty of bad episodes, such as:
    1. Rickdependence Spray (Arguably the worst episode of the entire show)
    2. Amortycan Grickfitti
    3. Rick & Morty's Thanksploitation Spectacular
    4. Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The characterization isn't entirely bad, as some characters are still great.
    1. A great example is Jerry, who went from an egoistical, cowardly, and dishonest idiot who always does wrong things thinking he's in the right when he isn't into a badass character who cares a lot about his family.
  2. A number of good episodes from this season:
    • The season's first three episodes, Mort Dinner Rick Andre, Mortyplicity, and A Rickconvenient Mort are surprisingly good episodes for the most part.
    • The final three episodes Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort, Forgetting Sarick Mortshall, and especially the season finale Rickmurai Jack are also solid episodes to end the season on, being a return to connected storylines.
  3. The show was good before this season and thankfully redeemed itself in season 6 onwards


While the first two seasons received universal acclaim and season 3 and 6 onwards received positive reviews, season 4 received a slightly mixed review, while season 5 received extremely negative reviews, Criticism was directed to the flanderized characters, the awful writing, and most importantly, the overuse of sex and incest jokes.
