[Summer, Rick, and Morty are experiencing a glitch as a result of the siblings' bickering and their reality has been split into two hypothetical timelines, which Rick is scrambling to reconcile]

The episode that got me into the show!

Rick and Morty is an absolute animated masterpiece of television. Every episode is ridiculous, ambitious and over-the-top you'll love it. The ridiculous is all thanks to the lack of restraints in animation. And A Rickle in Time is a perfect demonstration of what Rick and Morty is capable of; not only with its storytelling but also its fast-paced and crazy humor.

The way the episode goes from controlled craziness to outright insanity is so funny once the ripples in time and space start to unravel. And not even a Space-Testicle-Reality-Cop can stop Rick's mishap from getting out of control.

This episode got me into the series as a whole; and boy was this a discovery!
