Critic Reviews for Solar Opposites Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (8)

This is a show that rarely takes its time. Watching things escalate from tiny misunderstandings to disasters threatening to destroy a city or reconstitute the fabric of timespace is this show's sweet spot.

Dec 10, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Each episode is packed with a wit that's thrives on orchestrating chaos and then bringing it all back home, and for the most part it's a blast.

May 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Whereas Rick and Morty is a ragtag exploration of nihilism and feelings of personal insignificance, Solar Opposites. has a sunnier, but equally inquisitive, outlook. Which, in these weird, weird times, will likely be deeply appreciated by viewers.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Solar Opposites just puts the ugly, upsetting thing on the table and leaves you to pay attention to it or ignore it. That choice is, in and of itself, a part of what the show's going for.

Dec 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Solar Opposites is weird enough in its own unique way to separate it from all the other animated comedies out there, and its anarchic vibe might be just the ridiculous distraction you're looking for right now.

Dec 10, 2020 | Full Review…

The thing that really makes Solar Opposites work is its surprising brutality... The aliens may appreciate human pop culture to varying degrees, but at the end of the day, they have little regard for human life, with always hilarious repercussions.

Dec 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Solar Opposites delivers an exceptional first season that's as good, if not even better than Rick and Morty in some ways.

Dec 10, 2020 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Binging Solar Opposites can grate, which is expected -- the dialogue is at a constant speed and the aliens are landing gag after gag. They are funny though -- their perspectives of the human race are dissimilar and similar scene to scene.

Dec 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Out-there animated comedy has language, plenty of gore.

Jul 17, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

While "Solar Opposites" doesn't quite reach the sublime absurdity of peak "Rick and Morty," it's still a worthy companion series.

May 25, 2020 | Full Review…

The show that all but declares itself Rick & Morty's little brother fails to distinguish itself from any of its obvious influences.

May 20, 2020 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

It has some clever observations and riffs on sci-fi cliches, but its attempts to satire traditional sitcom plots and rhythms don't always land, which makes it feel uninspired far too often.

Audience Reviews for Solar Opposites: Season 1

  • 13h ago
    A solid comedy in the same vein as Rick & Morty.
  • 2d ago
    A strong beginning to a hilarious animated sitcom that utilizes the talents of Roiland to great effect. The series is well voice acted and animated and, though the premise is not so unique, has an engaging storyline, with a witty script. It also features one of the most inventive and entertaining overarching B plot, ever seen in a sitcom. Its only has a minor hiccup when trying to find its own identity and distance itself from the likes of "RIck and Morty". 8/10

    I really liked this season but the first episode wasn't as strong as the others. I really liked the quantum ring and Retrace-Your-Step-Alizer the final episode was very strong of an episode.

    If you came here expecting it to be like Rick and Morty, well it is, but, it's not as good. The voice acting and animation is great, but the story could've been better. Most of the characters aren't interesting, and none of the jokes made me laugh. Overall, not a bad show and I'll still recommend watching it.

    if you like rick and morty you'll like this

    Very funny especially when it goes over the top. A lot of good entertainment to be had and the characters grow on you.

    The blue alien is a less dynamic Rick and the green alien is a less stressed Morty. The child blue alien is also Rick and the child green alien is "girl character". I mean it's better than being alone with my own thoughts

    RATING: A Creator: Justin Roiland and Mike McMahon Solar Opposites is a unique new approach to the animated genre. The show has some great Voice acting ( for instance, the show's co-creator Justin Roiland voices one of the Leads, Korvo ), and I really liked Thomas Middleditch. The animation is great and they really love Details ( like Middleditch's character has a great new shirt every Episode: like in the Season Finale, "Straight Outta Anime" ) and because the show's on Hulu they can really play with Gore and violence and cursing. I really gotta say so far it's even better than Rick and Morty!
  • Apr 04, 2021
    I love Rick and Morty and Solar Opposites is essentially a spin off. Not exactly, but they're both from the same creative amazing mind of Justin Roiland. This show is hilarious, well written and uses the same animation I love on Rick and Morty. If you're a fan of that show, you'll 100% love Solar Opposites.

    It takes a few episodes to really hit its groove, but once it does Solar Opposites is another hilarious entry into the ever-growing genre of adult animation.
