I'm having a hard time getting there - it's just making me pine for more R&M, but it has it's moments.  It's a very odd thing to be watching.

It has a R&M meets Bob’s Burgers vibe.

We watched episode 1 when it dropped, ok to meh.

Episode 2 was ok, 3 getting better.

4 is better than the last. It’s growing into itself and we will be watching a couple more episodes tonight.

It has grown on my wife and I, we think we like the show.

Korvo’s voice is still Roiland doing a non-drunk version of Rick Sanchez. He needed to do the Seth Macfarland and change it up like he did Stan Smith.

It’s also funny to hear the kid from The Goldbergs, Clarence and the likes to playing a wild ass alien in this show.

Liking the wall story and the Pupae side story is amusing.

I think Solar Opposites has a problem. The substory, The Wall, is funnier and more compelling than the show. This would be like like Ryan and Kelly on The Office being more interesting than Jim and Pam. I would suggest Justin Roiland spend a nice long weekend with Dan Harmon to fix it. 

They actually used the wall subplot to sell it to Hulu.  And they know it's more popular.  And it was based on some iOS games - Fallout Shelter and Tiny Tower.

I'm going through and watching episodes I had skipped previously - I ignored the first season, then watched The Wall episodes, then watched the second when it came out, and am now playing catch up.

Anyways, my wife walked in just as the school principal ripped the panties off of the secretary/whoever and started eating her ass.

Season 3 dropped this week, and I just finished. As always, really funny. A couple cool detours and a nice twist. 

It’s a solid B version of Rick and Morty. 

Agreed

I'm nearly caught up on this show, and it's a great comedy so far. Highly recommend to anyone that enjoys Adult Swim type humor. It's quirky, graphic and hilarious. Lots of familiar themes from R&Ms style are prevalent, but it still is different enough to feel like a brand new show.

I have enjoyed all the characters, I don't really understand the criticism about the Wall stuff being better than the rest of the show. Wall episodes are fantastic, but so is the rest of it. Terry is great, and I love watching him disappoint and fuck with Korvo all the time. The kids are alright, probably my least favorite of the regular cast, but they have some great moments. I wish they showed more of Yumulack shrinking people and putting them in the wall. The interactions that lead to him doing that are hilarious. 

The Pupa is a shameless Maggie Simpson knock off, but it's great. I love how sentient it is, but how it operates just like a baby. The episode where it's on a mission to get Puffs was fucking brilliant. 

Just a fair warning, "Korvo and Terry Steal a Bear" is by far the best episode. I had to rewatch it twice and pause many times to look at all the details in the scenery. There are tons of references and easter eggs in the backgrounds. Also, RIP Molly.

Yeah, the weird thing for me is that I really don't care about the voices, or at least Rick's.  It's different enough that I really never think about R&M when watching it.

I'm not sure why I find the Wall stuff so funny, but I do.  Maybe it's the batshit plots or the uses for real-world items.

Less than one day after Adult Swim severed ties with Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland, Hulu announced that it, too, will distance itself from the performer/producer who’s been accused of domestic violence.

‚ÄúWe have ended our association with Justin Roiland,‚Ä̬†according to a statement from 20th¬†Television Animation and Hulu Originals.

Solar Opposites and Koala Man are expected to continue without Roiland’s involvement.
