ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

 

Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Unapologetically funny and fast-paced – it’s a time-travel galore!
2) Closest thing we can get to a live-action Rick & Morty
3) Full of pop-culture references – The Last Starfighter, James Cameron, Back To The Future, Terminator etc.
4) The later episodes are more like stand-alone adventures.

 

 

Cons –

 

1) The climax would’ve been much better if it was a cliffhanger.
