12 Shows To Watch After ‘Rick and Morty’ –– When The Obsession is Real

12 Shows To Watch After ‘Rick and Morty’ –– When The Obsession is Real

 

I am pretty sure a lot of you don’t know this tidbit about me, but your girl – like a lot of other people out there – loves Rick and Morty. And after binge-watching the whole show in 2 weeks, I have been galloping through the internet to find more tv shows like Rick and Morty. Needless to say, I have spend a good sum of my lifetime looking for shows that are, in one way or another, similar to Rick and Morty. Or at the very least, a tv show that would be able to suck me in and keep me obsessed with it from the beginning all the way to the end.

After a grueling journey battling giant sized earthworms, aliens and having to go through a purge in another planet, your girl have finally compiled up enough shows that would help hold us back and scratch the itch for Rick and Morty lovers as we impatiently wait for the next season.

 

PS : Please keep in mind that many of the shows that will be recommended below are not suitable for children despite it being made in an animated format.

1. Bojack Horseman 

 

Genre : Comedy, Drama

Seasons : 5 Seasons (61 episodes)

Runtime : 25 minutes/episode

Status : On-going 

 

 

BLURB : 

 

A humanoid horse, BoJack Horseman — lost in a sea of self-loathing and booze — decides it’s time for a comeback. Once the star of a ’90s sitcom, in which he was the adoptive father of three orphaned kids (two girls and a boy). The show was the hottest thing around, then suddenly, was canceled. Now 18 years later, BoJack wants to regain his dignity. With the aid of a human sidekick and a feline ex-girlfriend who is his agent, he sets out to make it happen. But Hollywood is vastly different from those days, and getting used to stuff like Twitter may take some time. This first animated series from Netflix — with plenty of references to sex, drugs and alcohol — is not for the little ones.

Luckily (for the most part), their safety is overseen by a security guard who uses his license to kill every chance he gets.

BLURB : 

 

Orel Puppington is an optimistic, well-intentioned, and devoutly religious 11-year-old whose Christian devotion, enthusiastic church attendance, and general naiveté leads him to grossly misinterpret Bible lessons, often with morbid and ghastly consequences. Though his parents, school coach and Rev. Putty clearly impart their religious values upon him, Orel always misunderstands and for some reason believes that smoking crack is a good thing, euthanasia is OK, and impregnating women with a sperm-filled pastry bag is actually a moral thing to do. In doing so, he unintentionally exposes the hypocrisy and duplicity of his family (particularly his father Clay), the members of his community, and ultimately, organized religion itself.
