Critic reviews for Pilot
All in all, a simple, yet solid episode to start a series with. Not as complex or as emotionally affecting as Rick and Morty managed later, but, hey, for the storyline it has, it's well-plotted.
While it's too early to judge whether Rick and Morty will ultimately live up to those comparisons, the pilot does find a way to not get lost in the limitless sandbox of Harmon and Roiland's imagination.
While it make for a good pilot, I'm not sure how the torture will be able to sustain itself. We shall see.
