In such a short period of time, almost immediately after debuting, Rick and Morty earned itself a reputation as one of the most unique, most bizarre, and most interesting cartoons on TV. After three solid seasons, and 31 excellent episodes, the hype for season four was through the roof.
Typically between Rick and Morty seasons there had been a wait of a year to 18 months, however season four came a full two years after the finale of season three. Even then, we were only given half a season. The final five episodes came another six months later.
Needless to say, not only was the fans' excitement higher than ever going into the fourth season, so was the pressure to deliver after making us wait so long. In general, these ten episodes made up a season that certainly left a lot to be desired, though there were one or two absolute gems to be seen.
Boasting two of the highest IMDb scores the show has ever earned, and the absolute lowest, it's fair to say season four had its ups and downs, and unfortunately, the latter outweighed the former.
