After just three seasons, Rick and Morty is already widely regarded as one of the best animated sitcoms of all time. It’s hard to top the series’ winning blend of high-concept storytelling, absurd humor and emotionally raw characterization, even if fans are often left waiting for months – or even years – between new installments.
Fortunately, the long drought is over. Season 4 premiered on Sunday, November 10, and we think it’s the best season premiere yet. The new season comes as Adult Swim renews Rick and Morty for a whopping 70 more episodes. Co-creator Justin Roiland said that this will allow he and Dan Harmon to start producing new seasons more rapidly and consistently, meaning Season 5 won’t take nearly as long to appear.
As we wait for new episodes to air, let’s take a look at the 10 episodes from the first three seasons we think are the best Rick and Morty has to offer.
