Critic Reviews for Solar Opposites Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (6)

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…

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.

May 19, 2020 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Despite being helmed by two series veterans, and despite its inescapable similarities to Rick and Morty, this animated sitcom is neither as clever nor as hilarious. But taken on its own merits, Solar Opposites Season 1 is a formulaic but enjoyable watch.

May 11, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

If you stop comparing it to Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites is a really good show. Different enough, but with the same type of humor we know and love.

May 9, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Pretty much Roiland and McMahon's take on the fish-out-of-water dynamic, mocking the family sitcom structure with their morbidly violent on brand sci-fi twist.

May 8, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Just when you think you've figured Solar Opposites out, there's always a curve ball.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Solar Opposites provides a perfectly entertaining escapist alternative that, for every bit of cerebral comedy, there's just as much low-brow humor to accompany it.

May 8, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Even if you've never seen Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites is worth a look for its sci-fi craziness, relentless gags and surreal shenanigans.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Solar Opposites is far less caustic than its Adult Swim-based older sibling. And that's saying something for a show that regularly features one bloody rampage or another on a nearly episodic basis.

Audience Reviews for Solar Opposites: Season 1

    Maybe as good or even better than Rick and Morty (depends on your taste), but this show is awesome! Loved it! I have to admit that The Wall subplot is actually better than the main plot.

    Watching Solar Opposites was a subtle reminder that Justin Roiland should be focusing his time on Rick and Morty, and not whatever he's trying to make this show into.

    Similar to Rick & Morty. I love it.
  • Jun 29, 2020
    Unnecessarily offensive and annoying comedy. The sub plot is more entertaining than the actual show. The characters are hard to find appealing and come off as shallow.
  • Jun 11, 2020
    It is original and entertaining!

    Ok tv show. The main characters are pretty forgettable. What goes on in each episode is pretty forgettable as well. I challenged myself to try to remember the plots of each episode after i finished the whole season. Only was able to remember 2 or 3 episodes. However, the sub plot of the small world of shrunken people in the wall is what carries this show. If they took out the alien nonsense and based the show around this plot it would be a way better experience. 7.0

    At first I was like, "Roiland really can't possibly pull the same sci-fi rigamarole smash hit that won us over with R&M" but he did it again! I haven't read The background details yet but ‘Solar Opposites' is giving off serious crossover future vibe. And yeah, no, I don't think I can help myself from association this with R&M because it's too early to tell if either boys that brought us the funny alcoholic nihilist will be able to top that shit but let's find out. Character design I wasn't too crazy with because, again, it looks like an off-shoot from the aforementioned breakout show but I suppose it's what they did with the characters that subtly but surely did it for me. I don't know what to make of Rick's voice on Kirov because, once more, it's difficult to not point out the similarities or identify them as counterparts but the presence of Terry (voiced by Middleditch) somewhat neutralised that. I like that they also were able to pull in Mantzoukas in the lineup; that was super. Jason has this distinct voice that really gives an edge to the characters he's playing whether on screen or off it. An element in the show I bet most fans will agree with is Roiland's affinity for incorporating side quest/side stories and in this show, he amplified it and it was quite successful. You still can't shake off that RickMortsian feel to the theme of that particular episode but at this point, I think I'll be mad if it weren't there. I'd love to see ‘Solar Opposites' be able to stand out on its own and not just end up as a side project of "the ‘Rick and Morty' guy" because Roiland proved that he's able to stand out as a creator on his own and make good media decisions in both process and execution.

    If you are a fan of Rick & Morty you'll Love Solar Opposites. At times, episodes go into such depth and side story it makes you feel like the writers are able to spin a story in any direction they wish all the while keeping you genuinely interested. I can't wait for season 2!
  • May 30, 2020
    The ant farm sub plot really was better than the actual plot. Just give us more of that.
  • May 28, 2020
    It was hilarious and entertaining, and I am disappointed to see people harshly rating it and comparing it to Rick and Morty. I think it's a great show on its own and I will definitely watch it again.
